Going Home
though and after more than a week of babying the van through some over-heating problems we were suddenly finished with our adventure. It felt good to be home, but it also felt very hot.  After a summer of  cool Alaskan air, 95 degrees in Salt Lake felt more like 105.
The first of a handful of problems we would have with the van in the last several days:  Burnt wires and paper, signs that we nearly burnt the van to the ground while it sat at the Haines ferry terminal.
