About Me

My photo
I am owned by Pauline and Mark Blasky. My hull was built at the Duncan Marine Yard in Taiwan and launched in Dec of 1980. It is a William Garden design based on the Pixie Design and called by Duncan Marine a Freedom 45. They are the fourth owners and have owned me the longest. They have done extensive refitting to me including replacing my entire deck structure and rig. My masts are roughly 10% taller than original and now are made of aluminium as opposed to the original wood ones, which, though pretty, were always problematic.

Road Trip Day 9

Wow, what happened to Tok?  We didn't stop in Tok.  We got there a bit early and decided to try to get a bit closer to Anchorage.  We were hoping to get an appointment to get the car serviced so we figured the closer we got the better.  In the end we could only get a morning appointment so we drove nearly 14 hours non stop and made it to Anchorage.  So we will be home tomorrow.

We saw a couple of foxes today, one had a Canadian passport and the second one we saw was just after we crossed into the USA so unless it was an illegal immigrant it had a U.S. Passport.  We got close to both of them but the camera was in the wrong place both times, whoops.

Again today the trip was interesting, the scenery varied a lot as we drove.  Some of the more interesting were the trip around Lake Kluane and its Destruction Bay, Matanuska Glacier which is called a valley glacier and looks like a river of ice, several of the mountains including one we think was Mount St. Elias, which is the second highest mountain in N. America.
