I did not see any mishap or accident reports on the Whitehorse Star, Yukon News, or Alaska State Trooper Daily Dispatch - I am thinking they had made it to their destination at JBER as well, if not then they got stranded somewhere....

Just hoping the driver didn't try to push it too hard west of Whitehorse with all the frost heaves and high winds as of recent that I seen on the super weather map pattern in the Haines Junction and Kluane Lake area.

Haines Junction thru (the Tok Cutoff route which was pointed out) during the winter is not a stretch to try to make time on, especially towing something significant behind you....it is bad enough during the summer between Destruction Bay and Northway Junction.

It has been a pretty cold February here in the Alaska Interior this month.

With no response from the OP for over a week, my conclusion is they are under mandatory quarantine measures, and then having to conduct in-processing protocols after that which also takes a lot to get settled in.

Mandatory quarantine involves taking away your phone and internet??

Maybe new members that are here to pick the collective brains should be required to pay a deposit. Or leave1 their favourite dog as collateral.
