In 1971 we hitched our 1968 Plymouth sedan to a 13-foot camping trailer and headed north.   It was exciting to know that, with every mile, we were farther north than we'd ever been....   We were driving to Alaska! |
It was the time of summer solstice, the longest days of the year in the northern hemisphere.   We would experience endless daylight, even the midnight sun!
Our son, Ron, was 14 and his sister, Linda, was 12.
We traveled the fabled Alcan Highway, going vast distances between sightings of other fellow travelers.
A side trip via Dawson City, Yukon, took us over an even more deserted road, the "Top of the World Highway" where we finally entered Alaska.
