Another rest day. Slept in so late that I had to have a burger for breakfast.
I picked up my stashed new rear tire that the Harley Dealer was so nice to hold for me.

The Mefo super Explorer wears much better than the TKC80's I'm used to. So I have to carry it for a while
The road to Tok again is full of homicidal Moose and I get to do some panic stops with that tire sliding into my back.
Before you get to Tok you see...

and you can only ask...WTF?
The owners have been here since 1985 and it is a collection of "stuff" acquired around the area. The name sounds like a kiddie park. It's not that at all. But if you are a gear head like me, you can spend hours looking at all the old snow mobiles, mil-surp stuff, engines, and this...

You don't see that every day.
Into Thompsons Eagle Claw and my wall tent again. It's hot out now so the Gobi's get put to work.

I even met the Japanese guy riding his Honda Ruckus across North America.
The Ruckus gets 200 mpg and tops out at 30 mph all loaded up with camping gear.
