Well, I took a closer look at the bike after I posted yesterday. The good news is that I don't think the squeal is due to the throwout bearing. The bad news is that the Tranny is leaking like a sieve. I'm going to try slapping some silicone seal around the gasket and see if that will work well enough to get me to Fairbanks.

 

Apparently, the Summer Solstice party starts tonight at midnight on top of Midnight Dome, the tallest point in Dawson and goes for 24 hours. Might get enough partying out of my system tonight that I can leave for Alaska on Monday.

 

The road out of here has been reopened but is subject to delays and reclosure as the fire is not yet contained. Nevertheless, there was a line of RV's literally a mile long waiting to cross the Yukon River by ferry this morning so they can continue on. The ferry is only big enough to take maybe two of them at a time so it's going to be a long day if your driving a motor home. I took the Squaw Magnet across the river last night to stay in the campground. I was the only one on the boat. I walked to the ferry this morning and, when I saw the line on the other side, I was glad I did. The Yukon Ferry is actually considered part of the Canada Highway system. It operates in the summer. In the winter, the Yukon freezes over and vehicles cross the ice. In spring and fall, when the river is either freezing over or thawing out, the highway is out of comission.

 

That's it for now. Talk to you later. By the way, aaron. You don't drink the toe, you just have to let it touch your lips to qualify for membership in the SourToe club. Yecch!
