I was just looking at my Alaska journal and found I'd recorded some funny things along the way of our trip north of north. For instance, here's what I wrote as we drove along the Dalton Highway:
"In Denali Park last night I looked up at the clock in the truck and it said 11:11 p.m. This morning driving through Fairbanks I glanced to the side of the road and saw a large digital clock at a business and it said 11:11. Driving on the Dalton Highway, I just looked to the side of the road and happened to see a Mile Marker. It said: Mile 111."
What's up with me and 1's?
Pardon my language on this next one, but it's too funny. On a sharp downhill curve on the Dalton Highway we passed a sign naming it "Oh Shit Corner."
We passed Jim River 1, Jim River 2, and Jim River 3. I wonder who Jim is. Lucky guy has three rivers named after him.
We also passed a sign identifying another river as the "West Fork of the North Fork - Chandalar River"
I just had to share those things.
