Alaska, to washington and returned

I put the Camaro on a trailer and hauled it to spokan last week. Once I delivered the moto home to my brothers place we unloaded the camaro and drove it home to Delta Junction. We got 23 MPG and run the chit out of the car. We didn't take it easy, lowest octane fuel I had to put in it was 91, until I got home, then it was back to 90 rated.

No broken or cracked windows got a few minor paint chips but what a ride. I look forword to doing it again.

What route did you take? I left from Seattle today enroute for Homer and stopped in Prince George, BC for the night.

Welcome back!

Sounds like you had a great time! Hope you took some killer pics with the car and the countryside. Or was it just flat out on the way back? Lol

Once we got to Prince George we run straight up to to dawson creek then on up. We live at mile post 1415 of the Alcan so it's a pretty easy run once you hit Dawson Creek. The road is pretty rough from Distruction Bay on up to the Alaska Border, about 125 miles, it's all frost heaves so just slow down and enjoy the ride. Takes awhile but it's been bad for the 30 some years I know of

Most the time we just keep moving but I did take a few photo's of the car. Took a lot more of Bears but couldn't seem to get the bears to stand still long enough for me to get the camaro in the shot with um

I will try and put 2 photo's on here of the trip one is of the camaro on the trailer behind the motor home we took down to my brother and the other is a pull out over look a little ways into Canada.

Yeah, there were a few rough patches...I have a few paint chips on the side panels and one minor nick on the windshield, but I made it all the way up to Anchorage with no major problems.
