Dicky's phone woke us up awfully early. Somebody from back home was calling him, not having a clue that he was several time zones behind. Since we woke up anyway, we started getting ready for the day. The plan for us with Cyle was to get to Dawson City. Dicky had to get to Anchorage to meet with friends. My bike needed an oil change, and I started looking for a place where I could get that done. The guys at Auto Parts in Whitehorse supplied me with everything, even with tools and an oil pan: I thanked them sincerely. Turns out the guy who helped me is also a rider, he had a street bike. We said our good byes with the guys at Auto Parts and went sight seeing in Whitehorse. I saw the mighty Yukon river up close for the first time: You may notice that the river is half-frozen--we were seeing people walking around town in flip-flops :eek1 There was the Klondike on dry dock, having carried so many people and their dreams to Dawson: We also visited the information center, where we inquired about whether the Alaska border was opened. Turns out, the border was still closed, but we learned that it is expected to open in 3 or 4 days, weather permitting. We scratched heads, wondering whethere we should continue towards Dawson. After all that was one of my main wishes for this trip right? Even if we have to wait at the closed border... Some photos from the Visitor's Center: We signed the guest book :) We returned to the hotel to clear out of the room. This scared me--is it really all going to fit on our bikes?!?
