Landcrew Carmacks to Dawson 333 kilometres
Arrived Dawson 12:30pm. Walked around town to work out where the boys would come in on the rivers edge. Landcrew disappointed looks like they wont reach Dawson tonight as planned. Tom and Steve wanted to reach Dawson 11pm to sleep in a bed and have a shower. They are 6 hours behind schedule so will have to camp before Dawson, so will visit Dawson only briefly if at all .
Looked for Igor the photographer, Christine met on our first visit, no luck, visited the Pit the local bar where the Yukon River Quest competitors partied to the wee small hours.... empty...
returned to the Downtown hotel, landcrew busy watching Google, tourists downing the Sourtoe.
Where are they, when will they arrive, more drinks say the landcrew.
