2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged Alaska Road Trip: Destination Reached
September 24, 2012
It took five days to make it the 3,598 miles from Los Angeles to Death Valley to the Buffalo Jump to Alaska.
The guy we met at the Tok (Alaska) gas station was from Arizona which is, at this distance, close enough. He, and his turbodiesel Ram had been on the road since June and put 12,000 miles on the odometer. Considering the sights we saw -- and drove straight past-- that timetable seems more fun.
Our final destination on the trip was Anchorage, AK. They look close on a map, but driving from Tok to Anchorage takes the better part of 5 hours normally, but, since Kurt was driving, it took over 6. Not because Kurt's slow, he's not, but because he has terrible luck and a convoy of semis blocked any chance at making time on this road.
At least it all looked pretty much like this
