YAY!!!

We made it! We are now officially in the Alaska Time Zone. June 1st into Alaska, 42 days on the road, just creeping along. We crawled into Tok late yesterday afternoon and were VERY happy to pull into Tok RV Village.

And so, the Alaska part of our trek begins.

We stayed several days in Glenn Allen at a nice park just down the road west of the junction about a mile or two on the north side. We also spent 4 days at King for a Day RV park right on the river about 15 miles south of GA when the REDS we running. Only park visitors can fish there.
I don't know if the fish wheels be running yet at Chitna. If the Reds are coming up the Copper River, they will be. Don't miss it, whether you fish or not.
We did not have any plans either, that is what was so fun.

Plans? Plans? We don't need no stinkin' plans. LOL!!!

Today we are going to Glennallen - the Tolsona Wilderness Campground. The website says they take Passport America until June 15th. Haven't decided on how long to stay there. Probably 4 days to a week depending on campsite availability, services, and bugs. Although We haven't encountered any bugs yet!

Plus, Boomer needs a place he can RUN. Poor fella, he gets so wound up if he can't spend a day running.

Please be real careful letting him run loose in Alaska. He is NOT at the top of the food chain, and there are many instances of loose running dogs leading ticked off bears back to their owner. And it's not just bears... If Boomer surprises a momma moose he's gonna have a very bad day!

Now if he's the kind of dog that runs on the road only, and doesn't venture off into the bush, you don't have to worry too much. But if he's a bush runner.... Put a LOUD bell on his collar to make him noisier.

I can tell you an excellent place to run him without much concern is the Independence Mine at Hatcher Pass, just outside of Palmer. It usually is pretty busy with other dog owners hiking with their dogs, so the increased human traffic *usually* decreases the bear traffic. But it is also a pretty steep area, and a diffucult drive with a large rig. It can be done - but it is a lot easier with a toad/tow vehicle.
