Day 1, Aug 24
Started by picking my Dad and Brother up from the Fairbanks airport at 1:30 AM. Back to the house for a couple hours of sleep and the final gear load out. My wife, Dad, Brother, and I headed to North Pole to meet up with our other hunting partners; Steve and Flor.
Our first stop was at Hilltop for a nice meal for the trip up the Haul Road.
Next stop was at the Yukon River gas station for a restroom break and gas.
Next stop was at the Coldfoot restaurant and gas station for the night’s meal. I took an 18 gallon gas jug so I did not get gas until we were at Prudoe Bay.
The final stop for the evening was in Wiseman at the Arctic Getaway Bed and Breakfast. The Koyukuk cabin slept all 6 of us comfortably. Someone with a sense of humor lives in Wiseman for sure. The horse sign made us all lagh pretty hard.
