I made it to Alaska

Exactly at noon today I crossed the border into the United States and made it to Alaska. Since my first trip to Alaska, since my first trip with Sue, since the trip when I knew I will be with her for the rest of my life, I have dreamed of leaving Kansas City seeking northwest direction Alaska. Today my dream has come true. I never thought this journey to the 49th state would have such a special meaning for me. Today I feel renewed, I feel reenergized, I feel ready for whatever the rest of my life brings me.

 

It was a beautiful drive today, it was unbelievable. Turn after turn in the road the landscape surprised me with another perfect view of the wild. I was so eager to cross the border that I had to force myself to stop once and in a while and enjoy the breathtaking landscape.

 

It was a long day, but it was a day I will never ever forget. It had such a special meaning, it brought me closure. But it also was a hard hard drive. The road was very bad and sometimes I thought I was going to break in a million pieces. I was so proud of my car and trailer for surviving the beating.

Now I am in Tok and tomorrow I will be driving to McCarthy where I will probably spend a week and celebrate the 4th of July there, they say it gets really busy that week; it will be good for me to socialize a little. I better stock a serious amount of beer!

 

From this day on I will not have cell phone or internet connection for a while, at least four or five days. I am going into the wild!!! Happy Fourth of July to all!!!

 

Carlos out!
