Quotes of the day

Mileage trivia

Some folks may have been confused when I first entered Alaska at Hyder, and thought I had reached my destination.  I went to Hyder because it was the closest point to reach in case something went wrong later and I had to abandon my goal of reaching Deadhorse.

Driving distance from Hyder, AK to Deadhorse, AK is over 1,700 miles.

Farther than the driving distance from Raleigh to Denver.

    1. Hmmm. I. Can't remember!
      Good to hear from you!
