We woke up in our rv boondocking spot to blue skies and sun. We were finally able to see how awesome this little pull off actually was! We spent some time here and headed towards Whitehorse for our last supply run before Alaska. After a quick stop we got back on the road so we could make it to our favorite boondocking spot yet on our travels.
Sorry for the delay! I hope to have new videos every other day from here on out! Lots has been going on behind the scenes and will give an update very soon! Anyway, we take a hike early in the morning and return to a beeping fridge in the RV. I discuss my ankle rehab and G picks up our old friend…Biz! For those who do not know, Biz drove down with us last year from Alaska and is joining us this year!
This has been a very big year for our plans for tiny houses and 5th wheels. Being able to spend a night in this tiny home was a huge educational experience for G and I. Not only were we able to get a feel for the size, we were also able to try out products like a nature’s head toilet and a toyostove. This was greatly advantageous to our future goals and plans!

In the morning G goes over our latest eating habits. Since we started this diet I have felt fantastic! Then, we leave our awesome boondocking spot to head North towards Colorado Springs to meet up with one of my old friends. Along the way we passed the worst RV/Car accident I have ever seen. The rig was literally blown apart with gear and pieces thrown everywhere. The truck was caved in on the passenger side and looks as though they would have been ok as long as they had their seatbelts on. Be safe this spring everyone! You think it cannot happen to you but you take one corner too sharp and that is it! We then spend some time with my friend exploring the local area of Colorado Springs.
Well, it is official, we will be putting in a new floor in the RV! We pack up and head towards our new home for the next few days, Rural Idaho. The drive was awesome and we arrive just in time to cook a pizza, watch an episode of Westworld, then head to bed.
G had it out for me after I lost my wallet! But it goes to show how nice Canadians are. Actually going through the effort to contact me and then ship my wallet down South! But after using our backup card we fill up the RV and hit the road. This has to be one of my favorite driving sequences ever! Then we find a great place to boondock and cook a nice dinner. This is one of those videos people are either going to love or hate. A lot of the video is driving and cooking with music in the background. And to be honest, when driving the Alcan that is how it goes some days. Lots of driving with snacks in-between.
If you are considering getting a tow car for your RV this may be a worthwhile video. Looking back, investing in another tow car was just not an option. However, you may not be in that situation. Not only was G’s car older, we also had to do a very specific sequence to tow it. If the sequence is done wrong then we destroy the transmission. Before taking it to the shop I changed the plugs, wires, cap, rotor and ignition coil. But, alas, we make it out of Anchorage.
If we do happen to boondock in Anchorage we always stay at the local Cabela’s. The lot is large, clean and safe. After a morning at Cabela’s we head to the shopping area of Anchorage and notice the roof leaking. A quick repair job was done and then we head back tot he RV to cook an amazing Pizza!
I spend anywhere from 8-10 hours per day on the computer editing. I do get a break from the work and head out and catch my first landlocked salmon! I also chase some turkeys for fresh air as well 🙂
We wake up early so G can get her morning waffles…Happy G Happy RV. Then we find out our camp spot not only didn’t have wifi, they didn’t even have the water on. Next time through we will not be staying at this camp ground! Then we explore the awesome Heritage Museum even though it was closed and make our wait to St John.
