Next Day ----# 15

Day 15?, that means we are at the half way point of our alloted 30 day trip, how did that happen.

It rained hard overnight but was not raining as we loaded up. Well that didn't last long. Light rain turned into steady rain as we got to Tok, rainsuits on. Around noon it cleared up and got nice.

Here was another highlight of the trip. I can say this with much certainty, most people that visit Alaska/Canada don't get to see a Giant Panda, but look at this!!!



A little later we ran into Wyngs again, he and WildMonkey had gone their separate ways. He waved at us to pull over and explained that his bike was not running right, and ask if we would follow him in case it stopped on him. We followed him until we came to a gas station and he was able to put some premium in and just a short distance down the road it started running better, must have been bad gas. I have that sometimes too.



And another Panda !! wow. Hey Greg that's close enough



Great scenery around the Destruction Bay area.





Ended the day in Haines Junction. There were bicycles everywhere and we found out there was a race from Haines Junction to Haines AK, 157 miles. The solo winner did it in 7 1/2 hours. They had the road closed all day so I'm glad we didn't plan to ride to Haines today.

View from our hotel



Maxbet was looking over his bike and saw that his brake pads were really worn. That Dalton mud had taken its toll. All of his pads were worn but one front pad was toast, apparently mud had caused a caliper piston to not release and completely wear out the pad. Now to find replacement pads.

And, we made our Ferry reservations for the next day in Haines.
