Kluane Lake

A very dirty Rv & truck!

8-13-2013 From: Tok, Alaska To: Kluane Lake, Yukon, Canada. Today is another Kramer milestone, we have been on the road for 3 months, today! Today’s road going South toward Whitehorse was by far the worst road we have traveled over this whole trip. It was truely like constantly riding on a roller coaster! We were lucky to go 30mph in the best places, and it took us 7 hours to go 220 miles. Spike and I saw a truck and trailer going in the opposite direction and the guy became airborne in the cab of his truck. It lifted him about 3” out of his seat! Spike was concerned that his trailer would become uncoupled.

I had to go and tie up the TP again so it didn’t end up on the bathroom floor! Spike and I are still “shell shocked” from this road, and we’ve been parked for two hours! We feel like we have been on a boat all day. I think it will be an early to bed for all of us tonight.

Not many pictures to share with you on today’s journey. It was really smoky due to the fires that are burning in the Tok area and into the Yukon. It was like a heavy fog or haze for most of the day’s travel. I’m sure there was wonderful scenery, but we couldn’t see it to enjoy it. The RV park we stayed at was on Kluane Lake. It was a pretty day and the sparkling water made us homesick for Panther Lake!

We haven’t seen many animals the past few days. We did see a couple of sand hill cranes today, a swan, a moose eating in the distance, and lots of little squirrels.

Going into back into Canada today, we are back on Pacific day light saving time, so we gained an hour. The Canadian border patrol agent said we should rename our Motorhome the “Dog palace” instead of our current license plate which is the “Ktsmeow”. (For those of you that don’t know, our license plate is the same one we had on our old maroon Safari motorhome. Our friends named it the “cats meow” years ago as it had a mural of two tigers on the back of it.) Tomarrow we will finish our trip into Whitehorse, (about 3 hours) and hopefully have some internet to send this to you!
