Alaska trip

We progressed to Alberta last night. Headed to Dawson creek. Gas is $4.65 gallon roads are better Dawson is half way point. We have been missing bad weather. Had to dry camp in a casino parking lot. We lost when we walked in the door. They gave me$95.00 for my $100. Lost the rest. I went back in to use the bathroom and they had a new card game. CASH/CRIB. It is cribbage something I play all the time and are fairly good at. II started with $20.00 and walked away with $240.00. Got back my losings and made money.

However they would not give me back my US DOLLARS. Now they make out like bandits. They get $5.00 from me and when they exchange it at the bank they get $102.00 so a $7.00 profit for them.

Things must be going well if you are only complaining about $7.00.

Now you will only have to pay taxes on 133 when you declare your winnings;-)
