Milepost 0- Marker #1

Dawson Creek!  The beginning of the famed Alaska Highway is an exciting start to the journey north.  Excited folks travel north in RV Caravan Tours or their own groups or individually. 

A nice Visitor's Center in town points out the 2 monuments for required pictures at the beginning of the trail.  A movie that begins when the first person asks for it is shown as part of the museum.  In their terrific bookstore I bought a book about RVing into Mexico and Central America - how strange for a book on Panama to be bought on the Alaska Highway!?

We're at Milepost 0 Campground tonight- doing laundry, enjoying the wi-fi, and scrounging out all our Alaska books.  Oh we have an entire Alaska binful of books on RVing, hiking, fishing, big atlases, folding maps, and my fictional "Dead North" book about the woman who drives her friend's RV to Alaska and ... well, it's' a murder-mystery but I don't think she's a victim (maybe reading it's not such a good idea)...

We're excited to finally be here- This has seemed like a far-reaching dream and to finally be at Milepost 0 feels incredible!

To the great wild North!
