Mom and a young pup

Very playful

Greeting Harry

Come see us too!!

So, we dealt with the Alaska Highway and finally made it to Alaska...wooooohooooo! The swivel wheel gave us a couple of scares as the pressure sensor had backed off due to all the BUMPS!!! The last warning turned out to be real and we found a small crack in the actual wheel! We just happened to carry a spare tire ON a new wheel, so we were off after a quick change. The town of Tok just happened to actually have the wheel I needed so we're set with our spare again.....that kinda luck just comes from good clean living! After we got checked into the Tok RV Village we toured the town in about an hour...not too big lol. The folks at the visitor center told us about a sled dog dude that would show us his dogs, so we headed out to meet the guy who just happened to WIN the Yukon Challenge (1000 mile sled dog race) and have raced in like 7 Iditarods.....Hugh Neff. Amazingly interesting and we learned alot about the the dogs......turns out they are sort of Alaska Husky Mutts!
