Aug 14, 2017 - Bell2 Lodge and RV Park

We departed Watson Lake after placing Bill and Merilee's hand wood burned sign...sweet...and headed for Bell2 Lodge. We had stayed there with Jackie's parents 5 years ago and we were all looking forward to relaxing in the hot tub after a long drive down the Cassier hwy! Along the way we stopped by Jade City and did some shopping and we also happened upon a stuck RV with a blow out...her husband was off to Watson lake for a new wheel and Bill and I pulled the hub off and cleaned out all the destroyed brake parts and reassembled it so they'd...

Aug 11, 2017 - Yukon Motel/RV Park - Teslin YT

Made the short trip from Skagway to Teslin across the Carcross cutoff and we had alot of fun climbing back up out of the valley, but the roads were nice and the views were spectacular..AGAIN! Bill and I tried our luck at fishing and had no luck, but the river was glass and the canoeing was fun....Harry and Merilee took a spin later in the day after we all rode our bikes to the George Johnston Museum and learned some local Tlingit...pronounced Klingit. Tomorrow we're off to place the wood burned sign that Bill made to commemorate the trip.

Jun 27, 2017 - Teslin Motel and RV Park - Teslin Yukon

Bill and Harry were itching to do some fishing since to date there have been NO fish! SO, they found a little over halfway to Whitehorse a place called Teslin. We had only booked one night, but after having lunch and seeing how beautiful it was we booked another night lol. Harry did see a bull Moose crossing a lake on our way to the campground and it was an LL Bean picture post card...unfortunately Jackie was on the wrong side of the car :( After a great lunch at the local restaurant/saloon the boys took the canoe out into the lake and went...

Jun 19, 2017 - White pass

Trains woke us up at 5 am getting ready to take cruise ship passengers to White Pass. Boy is town busy this am. Mom and Dad went to Skagway visitors Center to watch a gold rush film. We hit the road when they returned. Took a short walk around the old cementary and saw a waterfall. The mountains up White Pass were stunning. We saw a black bear with 2 tiny twins on the Roadside. Lily was so good she didn't bark. Later in the day we saw another mom and twins. Our campfire was rained out so it was an early evening.

Jun 9, 2017 - Teslin Lake

Our journey today took us back over the border into British Columbia and back again into Yukon Territory. We followed the Liard River as it grew larger due to all its tributaries. There was about a twenty-mile span of highway that had rock messages spelled out along the edge. In 2009 they were mostly legible, but by now the weather has disturbed the rocks or washed them away or mud had covered them so they were mostly undiscernible. I tried to catch some photos of the most complete ones and can make out some names or initials. As you can...

May 31, 2017 - Rainy day

The day started so promising playing ball on the shores of Lake muncho and going for a cold swim. Then the rain came, we loaded up the car and headed down the road. Mom and Dad left us in the car while they went to Liard hot springs. They walk through the hidden garden and sat in the hot springs for about an hour. Afterwards we all got to go in the community picnic area and cook a big breakfast breakfast. Still raining, down the road we saw her first wood bison. He was big. We stopped at Watson Lake to search for the signpost forest, people...

Sep 1, 2016 - Nugget City

Sept 1 Nugget City, YT is near Watson Lake. This was a short day, only 4 hours and 149 miles of construction dirt roads. It is still raining. Can’t hardly tell what color the car or motorhome is. Tonight we had a treat from our wagonmasters and tailgunners, Rootbeer Floats. Too cold to socialize, so we played games in the rig( farkle and quirkle)

Aug 27, 2016 - Teslin, YT

Aug 31 Today we traveled 6 hours and 150 miles to Teslin, YT. Now we start several overnighters. The most interesting thing we saw in Teslin was the George Johnson Museum. In the early 1900’s, George who was a native man that was far ahead of his time. George taught himself photography and how to print his own pictures. He photographed and worked in his small village and saved his money for a car. The town did not have roads, so the villager cut a road through the brush which was about 3 miles long. Then he went Whitehorse and bought a...

Aug 1, 2016 - In Teslin

Saturday, July 30 We left the Smithers Municipal Campground early and stopped at McDonald’s for breakfast. The big attraction for us at this establishment is not the food but a Wi-Fi hotspot we have come to rely on to post this journal while on our travels. After each having a slightly different variation of an Egg McMuffin and coffee and posting the journal, we left Smithers and the Smithereens behind and “proceeded on” - a term William Clark used often in his journals and which we have adopted. One thing missing so far on our trip was the...

Jul 29, 2016 - Yukon Motel and RV Park , Teslin, YT

Yukon Motel and RV Park. Teslin, YT Because of the late start, we only drove a 150 miles to the Yukon Motel and RV Park in Teslin, YT. This was simply a place to get off the road over night. They had a restaurant and we met a young couple from Germany. They had come to the USA, bought an old school bus, and had it converted into a motor home. They then drove to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. From there they are driving to Rio… YES RIO !!!! They figure it would be a 1 year drive. All we could say was God Bless and safe travels !!!

Jun 6, 2016 - Sign Post Forest

We left Liard Hot Springs at 6:30 this morning with hopes of seeing more wildlife. The plan worked and we saw a lot of bison and black bears. Karen has all of the pics and videos. Lots of beautiful scenery too. I told Karen that I am getting beauty overload! We stopped at Watson Lake home of the famous Sign Post Forest. It was started by a man from Illinois in the '40s with a single sign on a post that said Danville Illinois - 4567 miles" or some such. Now there are over 76,000 of them! Pretty cool. We wandered through the forest looking at...
