9827km: Newfoundland to Alaska

Driv.r Alaska-style

Tony and Jackie Power are truckers from Conception Bay South.

In January, they left C.B.S., heading to Alaska in their brand new 18 wheeler. The plan was to bring a load of equipment to Prudhoe Bay in a trip that was supposed to last about a week.

In the end, they made it as far as Fairbanks. Road conditions and Alaskan regulations meant another trucker took the equipment the rest of the way.

Tony and Jackie were travelling night and day to make their deadlines. Where they could stop, they did, to send us photos from along the way.

It's a unique way to see the country, one that Tony describes as the trip of lifetime.
