Day 8 – Alaska to New Jersey

Day 8 was May 16, 2017 and we were now driving from Wyoming, across South Dakota and into Minnesota.  As we crossed time zone after time zone it started feeling “real” that we were back in the Lower 48.

One of the strangest things for me personally to get used to in Alaska was the significant time difference from the East Coast which impacted weird stuff that messes with your sense of normalcy.  Like football starting at 8:00 in the morning – very odd, but cool.  Now we started to feel normal again.

This was my first time in South Dakota and i found the state absolutely enchanting.  Unfortunately it was pretty overcast but I still truly enjoyed the drive.

We stopped shortly after we crossed into Minnesota and began planning the next days trip.  I’m always flexible on my route so I can make last minute changes based upon traffic issue, road construction and weather.  Always pays to be flexible when traveling.
