Awesome day we took the dalton highway and stopped in coldfoot for dinner best meal we've had in ak. It is a truck stop that used to be a man camp for the pipeline and thers a hotel which is made from the old sleeping conexes is the only to describe it. It was so rustic and not modern in any way.

We just arrived in New Jersey today flying military space-available. Our plans to fly to Hawaii and Germany fell through so we took what we could to get out of Alaska after 3 weeks. We had an absolute blast in Alaska. Here are the highlights: We hit a moose while driving (we believe she's Ok); we traveled on the "Dalton Highway" to the Arctic Circle (a place with a population of 13); we visited a dozen glaciers and climbed on top of one; stayed in Denali for 3 days and saw lots of wild animals to include a grizzly; and traveled to the North Pole. We managed to visit 26 of the top 100 things to do in Alaska during our cruise and RV rental. On our trip today our middle son, Nathan, got to fly in the cockpit of a C-17 on takeoff. We're off again in a couple of days...
2 weeks since returning from Alaska, what a fun and adventurous trip it was... Got to go back and complete the Dalton Highway. Looking back at what all we did: Experienced 24 hour day with no sunset... Rode a car which had only cracks in its windshield on the Dalton highway which had mostly gravel roads, no mobile coverage, mostly narrow only abt 1.5 lane wide, with fast trucks coming in the opposite direction, watch Ice Road Truckers on Netflix for more information on the highway... The only permanent company was the Trans Alaska pipeline running parallel to the road... Used CB radio to announce our presence to the large trucks... Crossed the Arctic Circle, now been to all 2 circles of latitude abv the equator... Stayed at Coldfoot which had a population of about 15 which is the world's northernmost truck stop... Roller coaster roads on Dalton highway. Got our car broken down in a place with no mobile coverage (the nearest place was coldfoot which had landline connection and was 60miles from the spot our ...

The Dalton Highway Guest Author - Deb Frost The James Dalton Highway, known to Alaskan locals as “the haul road”, connects Fairbanks, Alaska with Deadhorse, AK and the Prudhoe Bay oil fields. Although open to the public, this 415 mile mostly gravel road is not considered a tourist destination or scenic byway – although it certainly is spectacularly beautiful. Tourists do regularly brave the first 120 miles of the Dalton Highway in order to boast having crossed the “Arctic Circle”. This is the only highway in the United States that actually does cross the Arctic Circle. It is not generally recommended that tourists travel much beyond this point. The Dalton is a dangerous, twisting, often steep-sided road with very little in the way of amenities. It claims lives nearly every year, most of them during the busy winter heavy-load hauling season. Even during the summer, visitors on the highway are well advised to carefully follow the rules of this road – ALWAYS yield right-of-way to semi-truck drive ...

It's really snowing tonight! On the highway and they're dalton and plowing! It was raining when we left this afternoon.
so...I might be staying in Anchorage for the winter job working in cable repair.or I might b e going North and working along the river again where I was working on the last project along the Dalton Highway south of Deadhorse. Either one is fine with me.working along the river on the Big Bear project was hairy, hard, and more fun than I should be entitled to have.

Section Four was 143 miles (230 km) from south of the Yukon to Coldfoot. It was contracted to Associated-Green, a group formed by Associated Pipeline Contractors, Inc. and Green Construction Company. The group also was one of the main contractors for construction of the Dalton Highway.[22] Section Five covered the distance from Coldfoot to Toolik pipeline camp, and Section Six went from Toolik to Prudhoe Bay. Together, the two sections covered 210 miles (340 km), and they both were under the supervision of Arctic Constructors, a venture of Brown & Root Inc., Ingram Corporation, Peter Kiewit Sons Inc., Williams Brothers Alaska, Inc., and H.B. Zachry Company.[22] In Valdez, where Fluor had supervision, the work also was divided among several contractors. Site preparation work was done by Morrison-Knudsen. Chicago Bridge & Iron Company built the tank farms, the tanker berths were built by Kiewest (a venture of Peter Kiewit Sons and Willamette-Western Corporation), and General Electric insulated the pipes.[23 ...

Does the highway on your daily commute make the cut for the most treacherous of pavements in the U.S.? Check out the top 10 — and hang on tight to that steering wheel. 1. Dalton Highway, Alaska: This isolated 414-mile highway was built as a supply road to support the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System in 1974. There are just three towns on the way, with a total population of 60 people. Besides the arctic weather to contend with, the giant trucks that ply the route kick up huge clouds of dust, reducing visibility to zero, and the road is littered with enormous pot holes. 2. Colorado 550 from Ouray to Silverton: This two-lane highway, sometimes called the “Million Dollar Highway,” is mountainous and full of sharp s-curves. And if you’re traveling during the winter, beware of avalanches. 3. U.S. 19, Florida According to MSNBC this may be the most deadly road in the U.S. 100 pedestrians were killed crossing the road during one five-year stretch. 4. U.S. Highway 2, Montana is the biggest contributor to Monta ...
