Latest from DHS, border open 8AM - 8PM

So I used the DHS/CBP web feedback form to comment about the inconsistent border closing information and received the following very polite letter from the person in change of the US side:

Mr. Simes,

I received you comment from HQ concerning the hours of operation at Poker Creek, Alaska and that it was only open 08:00 am to 6:00 Pm.
This was the hours about two years ago but we have since changed the hours back to 08:00 am to 8:00 PM.

If for some reason you arrived at the port at between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM and it was closed please let me know. I have three officers that are assigned to the port and it is to remain open until 8:00.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me at the email address or phone numbers below.

Well Simestd, I just got a reply from the Canadian side and they are open 0900-2100 "Weather Permitting." I don't know what weather would shut down the crossing.

That lines up with the AKDT/YDT 1 hour time difference - think we've the border times enough?

Re the weather, I don't want to jinx things so I'm not saying anything.... Ride safe and see you in Dawson!

Actually your hotel roommate is at Coal Mine Campground on the shores of the beautiful Yukon, north of Whitehorse. Somehow I got a bit ahead of schedule.

I was thinking I would have to camp on Tuesday and Wednesday night. I'll use the room if it's available to me.

Al, the prodigal roommate.

A few of the boys from Motoquest should be leaving Anchorage about the time you come though.

Have fun, Mark H.

I'll be leaving Soldotna around 9am so I'll be a bit ahead of you. I'm sure you'll catch up to me somewhere along the way.
