Left the northern Canadian Rockies behind at midday and ventured onto the endless prairies of Alberta.

Odometer now stands at 1542 miles.

What I’ve learned:

The Northern Canadian Rockies are as wild and beautiful a place as anywhere on earth, including Alaska.

Fort Nelson, BC used to the the disposable chopstick capital of the world due to its vast poplar forests and the fact that apparently no one else wanted to be.

Gas costs roughly 63% more in remote segments of the Alaska highway than it does in large communities.

The Alaska Highway is made up almost entirely of remote segments consisting of many miles and few gas stations, so you have to purchase gas whenever you can.

Especially if you are driving a 14′ UHaul that gets 9 mpg.
