13. June 2000, Tok to Dawson City
was meant to be a relaxed day but the second section did not turn out
that way. After Tok we saw nothing but forest, marsh and grassland (mostly
forests, though). The first human settlement on our route is Chicken.
The funny name and the fact that it lies somehow halfway between Tok and
Canada must have contributed to its business as its only business seems
to be selling "Chicken" merchandise and "Chicken"
refreshments (we only had plain apple pie and ice cream). Still it is
quite an odd place and therefore worth a stop if you happen to come by
the same route.
Overall 1 hour 11 minutes penalty
