Meals that Lynda (my wife) and others have created to make traveling easier and fun.

Our Alaska RV Tour – Day 29 – Raven Lake

The RV dump at William's Lake Stampede grounds was convenient and free, perfect. When we arrived Henry and Allison had an announcement, they needed to return home soon as a family issue had developed. They still had a week. Davie lake had no cel service, once we entered Williams Lake Henry and Allyson's phones went crazy with an overload of emails and texts from their family. The rest of the group were not disappointed, everyone was ready to return home. We'd been on the road for more than Read more [...]

Our Alaska RV Tour – Return to Whitehorse

Day 18 - Return to Whitehorse Traveling in a camper compels one to feel closer to nature and the elements, maybe too close. A grunt in the night, the howls of a distant coyote pack or the screech of a mountain lion can bolt a person out of a peaceful slumber.  Even the sound of rain falling on the roof can disrupt a peaceful sleep like my night at Snag Junction. Rain pounding on the camper roof woke me often. During my semi-conscious state in my cozy bed I dreamed of the Klondike gold rush Read more [...]

Our Alaska RV Tour – The Top of the World Highway

Day 17  - Top of the World Highway This morning marks the halfway point of our trip and today we could reach the most northerly point of our travels. After the midnight northern lights show and the clear night I was not surprised to see a blanket of frost on our vehicles. Minus 2 C (28 f) with low cloud/fog. We prepared to depart Gold Rush RV park for The Top of the World Highway and  Alaska. This day’s destination is Chicken, Alaska, for a two-night stay. As we prepared our rigs for the Read more [...]

Dawson City- Center of the Klondike Gold Rush

Day 15 - Dawson City Showers on the camper roof woke me several times through the night I was hoping our run of nice weather had not ended. We woke to grey skies and occasional filtered. Plus 9 C  (50ish F) a cool start to the day. The night before during happy hour  a group decision was made,  the men would cook breakfast before hitting the road for Dawson. This time there was no disagreement about who was cooking what. I did potatoes, Henry bacon and Ralph eggs, this time a surprise Read more [...]

Our Alaska RV Tour – The Yukon

My continuing accounting of our groups RV tour to Alaska. If you would like to read about our trip rom the beginning please click this link. Day 11 - Drive to Whitehorse The last  morning  at Boya Lake brought rain showers, again, as we prepared for another driving day. The rain is becoming a drag, we did expect some poor weather, but it has been 5 days since we’ve seen the sun. The drive north from Boya Lake to the Yukon border and the intersection of highway 37 and the Alaska highway Read more [...]

Alaska RV Tour – Kinaskan Lake to Boya Lake

Kinaskan lake, BC. Note to my readers my comment section has been repaired, feel free to leave comments at the bottom of the articles. If you would like to read about our Alaska RV tour from the beginning please click here. Day 8 – Kinaskan lake The day began with heavy rain. Peeking out the camper door I could see conditions would not improve in the next few hours so I decided to stay indoors and catch up on these articles. Everyone else was also slow to appear. So far our tour has Read more [...]

Our Alaska RV Tour – Kinaskan Lake – Day 6

To read our Alaska RV Tour from the beginning click here. Day 6 - The Drive to Kinaskan When I woke the next morning at Rainey Creek Campground it seemed dark in the camper, as though the sky was socked in. Before we left home I cut cardboard covers for the camper windows to keep out the morning light. I can't sleep once daybreak comes. I pulled the curtain back and realized it was the dense foliage of the old growth forest canopy keeping the sunshine out. The campground is picturesque Read more [...]

Our Traveling Menu

When we are on the road Lynda says I'm always impatient to get moving in the mornings. Maybe she's right. I like to do most of our travelling in the mornings when it's cool and our energy levels are high. It seems once we stop for lunch its more of an effort to continue. Driving a big rig is tiring, you need to be alert as I found out the hard way. Check out my previous article to see the hard way. With a big rig or even pulling a small trailer you take up more space on the road and cannot Read more [...]
