The COVID-19 test should have gone into effect 3 Feb. That is the information I received from the Air Force. I already have tests scheduled for me and my family this Friday on Hill AFB. We get the results right away. Better safe than sorry.

As for the pictures, we'll be taking lots of them! We did last time and can't wait to do it again.


theres been a lot of confusion where people have been told rapid tests do not qualify and the real tests take to long to get bak to meet the guidline. I would check with the boarder agents and see what is required and the time frames for your transit.

Unfortunately it's impossible to get in touch with CBSA. I've tried on numerous occasions with no success. I followed the guidelines on the CBSA site to have a molecular (PCR) test done. The test they administered at Hill is the same test.

So we made it to Airdrie, AB yesterday without issue at the border. Thank goodness! Apparently the COVID testing requirement starts today. We were prepared regardless.

I did run into an issue though. While trying to leave for St John, BC this morning I was trying to knock ice off the axels of the TT when I noticed broken wires to 3 of the 4 wheels. Found out that these were the brake wires and that they had been cut by the ice build up. Since my movement is restrict due to covid, I was lucky enough to find a guy who will be able to repair the wires tomorrow. What a relief! I have also purchased a butane torch from Canada Tire and will do a curbside pickup later today. I'm definitely learning some things on this trip.

Thank you all! We made it to Liard Lodge safely last night. Today we trek to Whitehorse.

I have a question. Yesterday I was getting fuel at an ESSO station and realized I pumped 5 gal of LSD into my truck before I stopped it. I had about a half a tank already in the truck before accidently adding the the LSD and ended up going to another station that offered ULSD to finish filling it up. Will this LSD hurt anything? It seems that most places in the ALCAN offer only LSD, unless you're in a well established town/city.

Sounds like your making pretty good time across CA. Be ready for the Yukon checkpoints later today, and your 24 hour timer to start. You'll be fine with the fuel your purchasing, Canadians drive the same vehicles using that fuel and your doing highway driving not stop and go city traffic. Make sure and fuel up in Beaver Creek, there isn't squat on the Alaska side of the border for a long ways, with Tok being the best bet for good fuel.

You guys are gettin right along! Good to hear!

I'm about 99.5% certain that you were pumping ULSD and not LSD. Canada has had the same regs for fuel basically as the US, since 2006 or 2008, whenever the switch was made.
My guess is old pump stickers on the pumps out there in the boonies.
