Day 26: We made it to Fairbanks!!!

November 9
Tok, AK to Fairbanks, AK 238 miles

It took us almost four weeks (holy cow), but we FINALLY made it to Fairbanks!

It was so so so cold this morning! We woke up early to leave tiny Tok and hit the open road for the last time.

We made a quick stop in Delta Junction, where the Alaska Highway officially ends. There was a monument at the (closed for the season) visitors center, so of course we took a few celebratory photos. It was so windy. We picked up the Richardson Highway to Fairbanks, and passed the Trans-Alaska Pipeline! So cool.

As soon as we arrived in Fairbanks, we went to pick up the good ol' Kia, which was shipped from Atlanta. Next we parked the uhaul/Land Rover at the Super 8, checked into our room, then went to check in at Fort Wainwright. We immediately started house hunting. We are anxious to be done with hotel living and find a house because Sam starts work on Monday.

Thanks for following along our journey from Georgia to Alaska!
