Hurry hurry wait

In this one and a half minute video, Jack drives over the pipeline then has to wait in back of another truck while a grader finishes clearing the road.  Then he continues on down the hill – you can see the grader on the left.  (Don’t forget, the video is in HD so don’t watch it blurry!)

Dalton Highway, April 16th & 17th

These photos are the last of the ones Jack took from when the road was in bad condition.  It’s much improved now, to the point where Jack says there’s nothing to take photos of.  When the melt starts up there though, who knows what will happen.

Truck waves on the Dalton

Talk about poor road conditions!  This was about a week ago, before the road closure.  Jack has been told the road will be open tomorrow so he is on his way up.  So sorry to all those who’ve been stuck on the non-home side.

Trucks in this video are going really slow as there’s a layer of glare ice underneath them.  At the end you can see a wave that’s being created by moving trucks.

(Don’t forget you can change the resolution on a YouTube video if it looks blurry, “settings” in the lower right hand corner.)

The Dalton has turned into a river!

The Sag River has turned the Dalton into one of it’s branches.  This video was taken on the first day of April.  Road conditions have been getting steadily worse.  The road is currently closed because blowing snow is reducing visibility and they can’t see to clear the road.

More to come.
