Talking Tiki's Picture Journal and other random stuff

HI

I like to take alot of pictures of places I have been and of my animals.

Let's start the 1st post off with pics of the ALASKA HIGHWAY in WINTER. Yeah, I don't recommend that...especially if you are towing a trailer with a car.

In case you aren't aware of where the Alaska highway is, Here is a signpost I saw someplace. I think it was in the Yukon?

We started in Fairbanks, Alaska and the Alaska HWY ends in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. We however, were going to New York



I was not a happy camper - note the huge chinchilla cage in the backseat. Said Chinchilla was also NOT happy to be stuck in a car for TEN DAYS...



2nd Fish transport system with the 4 survivors, since the 1st one failed miserably and I lost 20 bettas I had to hold them on my lap for like 8 days, to make sure they got warmth from the heater. Keep in mind it was -50F for most of this portion of the trip



Mr Magic Mushroom, spreading his fins in a hotel in Ft. Saint John, BC. I made sure that they got fresh water at the hotels we did stay at and let them swim in the 2 gallon tub for a bit in each stop.


I never want to see a HUSKY station as long as I live!


The Rig - note the unhappy dog INSIDE the car

Mr Fishie - my 1st betta. Due o bad advice from petco, he died shortly after. I found a used mini bow 2.5 gallon with everything for $12 so I went to petco for a fish. After being ignored, I picked up a betta cup sitting on a shelf.

I don't envy you the trip, but I would love to see Alaska and Canada some day! It looks so beautiful.

Alaska is like a different world, very different from the rest of the USA in terms of attitude and way of life.








Chene Hot Springs. Its awsome in winter when the air is -40F and the springs are over 100F. They have colored lights and all you see is the mist from the water. its very mythical in winter.
