Tokyo to L.A. - The Hard Way - In a Suzuki Kizashi: Day 15

Tokyo to LA US Canada Day15 Kizashi takes it all in

It was 42 degrees Fahrenheit in Beaver Creek, billed as Canada's western-most town, when you fired up the Suzuki Kizashi this morning. Cumulative average fuel mileage was listed during 21.8 mpg, 0.9 mpg improved than when you headed out from Anchorage the day later. That's the great news. The bad news is that you couldn't get online anywhere in locale to record the stories as well as the photos.

We attempted Buckshot Betty's, sloping as the place in locale for breakfast as well as for Internet access. One out of two wasn't bad, as well as it was the right the single out of the two. Tasty cinnamon rolls. A small place drawing mostly locals, the integrate from Ohio came in, as well as carrying speckled the "Tokyo 2 L.A. - The Hard Way" decals as well as city check-off list, asked either you were you do the reality show. Isn't everybody?

The day's expostulate totaled some-more than 400 miles (including branch around as well as repeating short stretches for the cameras) upon two-lanes by some of the many pleasing landscape in the world. Some of Canada's tallest mountains approximate Kluane Lake, the big, transparent blue lake sprawling by the north-center of the Yukon Territory. With kilometer after kilometer of this, you begin taking it for granted. Jack Lewis is somewhere up ahead, enjoying the Suzuki V-Strom so much, he's talking about buying the used one.

We're expecting reaching the locale where we'll finally get Internet entrance to record the stories as well as photos, as well as may be cell entrance where you can call family as well as colleagues. Again, the single out of two isn't bad.

We finally get that entrance in Whitehorse, Yukon's greatest city, during the Birdhouse coffee emporium just out of town. Free entrance as well as great coffee, most recommended. Whitehorse is the small jewel of the town, the flattering mountainside village that likes hiking, biking, canoeing, skiing as well as the Iditarod race, that starts as well as ends here. Teslin is an additional 90 miles. It's the mark upon the map with 400 residents, as well as it's not nearly as charming as Whitehorse, though being here will keep tomorrow's run to Fort Nelson under 600 miles.

Tokyo to LA US Canada Day15 pleasing towering scenery

For me, today's expostulate drove home the dichotomy of the great car upon the great highway as well as the constant quest for Internet as well as mobile phone access. Drives like this have been all about getting divided from everything. You have the car, pleasing scenery, as well as copiousness of time to your thoughts. On drives like this, it's great to be disconnected.
