A caminho de Seattle. Destination Seattle

Aqui vai o relato direto do Gildo ( achei melhor reproduzir suas palavras para ficar mais autentico. Sorry, não mandou nenhuma foto nova, mas dá pra entender o porque.

cheguei bem. Estou em um hotel em Dease Lake a 720km de Prince Ruppert. Vou fazer um resumo depois que falei com vc em Fairbanks:

Depois que cruzei a fronteira do Canada, o tempo fechou e começou a chover ventar e esfriar muito(5.5 graus Celsius) . Minha idéia era tentar chegar a Whitehorse mas não aguentei a chuva e o frio e dormi em Haines junction. Liguei a luva eletrica da Gerbings no maximo, mas com chuva a ponta dos meus dedos começaram a doer. Na bota entrou um pouquinho de agua mas com o aquecimeto deu para suportar. O negocio é muito bom, estava ate pensando se pifasse eu iria ter uma hipotermia. Agora vi que funciona mto bem para clima seco mas chovendo com vento, o calor gerado acaba indo embora. Agora ja sei que o certo é colocar a capa de chuva da BMW por cima de tudo, assim é feita uma barreira exterior e o calor gerado fica mantido. Com o insert não da.
Hj acordei as 7 em ponto, pois queria sair cedo, mas acabou nao dando pois tive uns problemas para resolver na empresa e acabei saindo as 10:15h. 
Vi uma familia de ursos Grizzly na estrada, a mae e dois filhotes. Dava vontade de pegar eles no colo.
Amanhã saio cedo, pois quero chegar cedo para conhecer a cidade. 
Here are the translation of Gildo own words:

I got well. I’m in a hotel in Dease Lake on my way to Prince Ruppert, 720km from here. I’ll do a summary after I talked to you in Fairbanks:
After I crossed the border into Canada, the weather closed and it started raining, windy and cold (42 degrees) as hell. My idea was to try to get to Whitehorse but could not stand the rain and cold and slept in Haines Junction. I turned on the electric glove Gerbings at the highest setting , but with the rain, the tips of my fingers started to hurt. On the boott a little bit of water entered, but with the heating turned on, I was able to bear it. The equipment is very good and I was wondering if I would have not worked, I would get hypothermia. Now I saw that it works well for dry weather but if is raining and  windy the heat just scape. Now I know that the right thing to do is to put the BMW rain coat over everything, so it made an outer barrier and the heat generated is maintained. Today I woke up at 7 o’clock, because I wanted to leave early, but ended up not, because I had some problems to solve in the company and ended up leaving the 10:15.
I saw a family of grizzly bears on the road, mother and two cubs. Made you want to catch them in my lap.
Tomorrow I leave early, because I want to arrive early to know the city.

PS: This is Homero: Unless I receive Comment from the English readers following the blog, I will only publish it in Portuguese. So, please let me know if anybody needs it in English. Thank you.

    I follow and like the report from you both. Very special trip. English is much easier for me than portuguese. But you can go ahead only in portuguese. I have possibilities to understand it ;). Um abraço

  3. I have been reading all along! But don’t worry about translating for me….I’ll just look at the pictures from now on. : ) I’ve really enjoyed following your journey (the good and the difficult parts) and glad you are safe at home Homero. Best wishes until Seattle Gildo!
