Well, this is it folks, our final episode of our Spring 2017 trip. We wake up early in our gas station boondocking spot and head towards Anchorage. We stock up on town and spend the night at Cabela’s. The next day we head towards Seward and boondock for our last night together. The day after we head into Seward and get setup for the summer! Thanks for watching everyone!!!!!!
We head out of Prince George and head to Dawson Creek. We had a gorgeous drive over and was excited to stop by the Mile Zero marker. Every year G and I drove up we always stopped by this marker. This was Biz’s first time visiting as well! After visiting the marker we head out of town towards our boondocking spot for the evening. We ended up not getting video of this because my phone died and would not turn back on! This will be the last Android phone I ever own!
The phone I have been filming with over the last 3 years is a Samsung Note 4. And, while on the road this year, it has been letting me down! I didn’t get any footage from our drive in as my phone decided to stop recording video for no reason!
But anyway, the night before we got in late and it was snowing fairly heavily. We had to pull over to a rest area because it was getting so bad. We wake up the next morning and we get the official introduction to biz and I share the dumb move I pulled the night before. Then we get underway and stop at Fort Nelson. As many of you know and I have replied, these videos are delayed. This was early in the summer when it was still fairly cold and the water was shut off at most places. With that said, I had to bargain with the RV park across the street to let us fill fresh water. After get filled up we hit some more snow. It was a gorgeous drive for certain. But, it was also a stressful one. Thankfully, we made it safely to our next boondocking spot and share how we setup movies in the rig!
The drive in with the RV was tough but waking up to this amazing spot was great! I get the drone up in the morning and a plan forms for a cool video. After some breakfast and planning, Biz drives the RV over the bridge for an epic shot! Sadly, watching the drone and the road made the video a little glitchy on my end, but I think it turned out ok. Then we continue onto Liard and spend the night there. Later in the night we discuss an idea we have been discussing on the road. It started out as a “what would we need to survive”. It turned into how long could we last and what would we bring with us. Enjoy!
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.
After an amazing Northern Lights show around the fire we head out bright and early towards the Alaska border. I had been planning on having G and Biz drive this portion as it is very open with little traffic. G and Biz did a great job! Then, we head across the border and find an awesome free boondocking spot at a gas station.
We finally get our RV into Canada for our trip up to Alaska! We gas up beforehand as fuel is WAY cheaper within the lower 48. While crossing, we have weird experience with our firearm but everything turned out ok. Then we meet up with our Convoy and head North. If you love scenery videos, this one is for you! Lots of driving through amazing Canadian landscapes. Then, we finally make it to Prince George where you meet our convoy members and we (I) lose some $$$.
The new shower for our RV turned out pretty good! I am glad I went with this mod and I am currently keeping an eye out for a curved shower curtain. It is never fun taking a shower in the cold and having the cold curtain stick to you! Also, to continue our string of bad luck with the RV, our door jack mount decided to rip off. Then I meed up with bones, check out that interview here ~ https://youtu.be/Ll9iXpKpHyY
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!
We leave our boondocking spot after a few days of work and head to the big town of Missoula, Montana. We get a giant rock chip on our windshield that completely ruined our camera location. Out windshield is so beat up at the moment that we do not even bother to fill in the crack… After arriving in town we almost skim 3 inches from our roof and Kobuk gets a new toy. Enjoy!
