Leaving for Dawson City Yukon

Well we are finally getting away in a few hours . We will travel to Dawson City and spend 6 days there then onto the Top of the World Highway and into Alaska before returning home October 4. Excited about the trip! It is our first extended trip with this trailer and we will probably be glad of the furnace before the trip is over. I will try to post some pictures along the route but am not sure where or when we will be able to get internet access. Maybe we will strike it rich doing some gold panning .

Jon, Most McDonald's and Starbucks restaurants have free WiFi. You don't have to be inside for it to work, and there is no sign up other than agreeing to play nice.

Now if Tim Hortons would catch on and offer WiFi I would have a donut now and then!

I don't think there are too many McScrawny's or Starbucks in YT. Is AK overrun w/ them?

Arrived in Dawson City a few days ago. Incredible scenery en route. One glitch was a charging problem TV/Trailer. Dealer in Whitehorse found a blown 40 amp fuse in the truck. Replaced that and all works fine. I attached a couple of photos as a sample of the views. We plan to visit a mine here tomorrow. There sure is a lot of interesting history here.

Absolutely beautiful! I'm waiting for more pictures! How has the weather been? It snowed here in Southwestern Alberta yesterday. Any rv tricks for the cold weather you can share?

The weather here has been beautiful. Each day has been sunny all day with the temperature getting up to around 18 degrees. It is daylight until about 9:30 . Each morning has been frosty about minus 2 or 3. We are staying at the Bonanza Gold RV park here and have electrical hookup and we have a small electric space heater which we have on during the night so we don't use our propane and it is working out well. We got to do some gold panning today and got 4 small gold nuggets. We plan to have them mounted at a gold store here tomorrow (Monday). We plan to do more site seeing in the area over the next couple of days then travel on the Top of the World Highway into Alaska. The border crossing on that road closes September 24, so we will get over it just before the closure.

Your weather has been nicer than we've had here where it's been 5 or 6 degrees and raining / sleeting / snowing.

The gold panning sounds like great fun! Aside from the space heater what else are you doing for cold weather?

I am envious, I would love to do a trip like that . the wife says she would rather go south.I told her she can go south anytime she wants to walk. ha ha ,it's funny cause she cant drive the truck and trailer yet.

Come on down to central Virginia. Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 95F.

I scraped ice off the windshield yesterday. Your kind invitation is enticing.
