Now this is the way to "drive" 1800 miles

We made it safely on the ferry on Monday night and have been cruising for several days now.  So far, we've had it pretty smooth with only some very bumpy spots during each night but we have been very sheltered along the coastline.

We are currently in our last Alaska town, Ketichan.  We will be in open water tonight and tomorrow and then we'll head into Bellingham, Washington on Friday morning.  The truck is still spewing "red stuff" that has dumbfounded 3 different mechanics, so we have an appointment for it on Friday morning in Bellingham with the Dodge dealership.  We are hoping its just a hose of something and can be fixed quickly.  We have a a feeling that we will be spending at least one night in Bellingham before being able to start the 3 day drive into Denver.  So far, it doesn't seem like we have any major weather systems, but any weather at all will definitely slow us down.

We were giggling that we are the ONLY RV on the ferry....  Everyone else ran months ago...  Wonder what that should tell us.
