Stardate: June 10, 2009

Coldfoot, AK to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay, AK MP 414
245 miles
Arctic Caribou Inn

Although only 245, it took us about 5 to 6 hrs to make it here as weather conditions turned bad from Atigun Pass on. Temperatures on Prudhoe Bay were 35 degrees during the day and a bone chillin' 20 degrees at night. So, we opted to stay at the Caribou Inn, our first and probably only motel during this trip.

Our stay at the Inn, had an expected T-bone Steak and shrimp....freshly flown in from Anchorage, AK.

Most of the people working here are from the lower 48 states and making really good money with a work schedule of 2 wks on and 2 wks off with a daily 12 hrs shift. They eat like royalty.

We made it and the rig is running cool like that! This is how we roll...

Jose, do you wanna wash my truck? It probably has 2" thick mud on the rear.
