Yukon - Question 2

Looking at a map it looks like we could fly into Fairbanks and drive the Alaska Highway to YT1. Has anyone done this and are there places to stay along the way? Very unfamiliar with this area. Thanks.

Tell me about the Yukon

We are starting to plan next year's vacation(s) and are looking at the Yukon as a possible spot. We'd be flying most likely into Whitehorse. Looking for places to go and things to do such as photograph wildlife, history, ghost/mining towns, etc. Most likely time frame would be last week of August into Labor Day weekend. Cold weather is not an issue.

My parents got us out of bed to watch. It was so surreal and still is.

So VERY happy this morning!

Long story short, my sugar levels were over the top high last weekend. No reason that they should have been especially since over the past two weeks they've been running low. Checked the battery in my glucose meter but it was fine. Coincidentally my doc emailed me and told me she had put in the order for my next A1C test. Had the blood drawn yesterday and got my result this morning and it was actually a little better than the last time! I was expecting the worst. My hard work is actually paying off!

RE: Car hits MH head-on in Carver, MA

the engine computer immediately sends an aural warning that the engine will shut down in so many seconds and pull to the curve immediately All I see from this is an accident waiting to happen when a driver loses control of their vehicle.

RE: Tips for first time long haul road trip.

Your going to have some cranky kids at 600 miles per day. Split it into at least a 3 day trip. Make it a vacation instead of a marathon. X2. You are looking at back-to-back 11-12 hour days assuming there are no issues with traffic, someone not feeling well, etc. I understand the "rush" mentality but you will still have ample time in FL if you slow down a bit. One of the reasons we are not RVing at this point in time is you can only get so far in a two-week vacation and we wanted to explore more parts of the world. Driving 3 days out isn't too bad-it's the 3 days back that sometimes ruins whatever benefit you got. You could also stop an extra day on the way home somewhere fun to give everyone something to look forward to on the return trip and take some driving stress off. Regardless of what you choose to do one of my suggestions would be to stop every 2-3 hours and switch drivers. Even if you don't feel tired it helps with both the mental and physical fatigue as well as boredom. You'll need to get out to let the kids blow off steam and burn energy and switching drivers will help facilitate that. Kids that are cranky and fighting will quickly turn fun into NO fun.

Read it with care, or with a barf bag handy. Which article?

RE: First time camping in bear country in popup.

Keep scented products such as deodorant, toothpaste, etc., in the TV and NEVER use strawberry scented shampoo! I speak from experience on the shampoo part! If the bears are active, it's also a good idea not to wear clothes you have cooked in or spilled food on inside the tent. Most likely you'll have no issue but if you are nervous ask at the kiosk when you check in for further suggested precautions.

RE: Really?

LOL! I kind of crack up at these stories-nothing is ever really free! My sister pulled a good one. Her credit score was in the tank and she had no money and REALLY needed to get away. She got a call from some time share place. They told her up front she'd have to listen to the pitch but if she listened she'd get a free weekend away. Knowing that once they ran her credit she'd be off the hook she went, listened to the spiel, feigned interest, filled out an app and then sat back and waited. She got her free weekend away, including air fare and hotel. Wasn't a high quality place but it was safe-and free. Sometimes ya just gotta have some fun.

RE: Georgia to Maine

Pa.....ya have Gettysburg,the Pa Dutch country and Metro Philly and all it's history Maine....probably Kitteybukport and the Bush compound,Arcadia park....Boothbay Harbor,Red's Eate in Wiscassett Ct...Mystic Seaport NH...Portsmith Harbor,Quaint NE seaport, north Conway area Agree with all the above but it's Kennebunkport, Kittery, Acadia and Wiscasett. Correct spelling will make them a bit easier to do net searches. When do you plan on going? Reservations may be necessary due to timing. You might want to cut back on the number of places so you don't spend the whole time driving. For photography my suggestions would be the battlefields of Gettysbury, the sunset at the Bar Harbor KOA, a drive up to the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, the north shore of MA (Gloucester, Rockport, Newburyport, also fills the bill for quaint towns) and the scenery along the back roads in almost any New England state and upstate NY, especially if you come in the fall.

RE: Need advice for brand new RVers

Isn't it obvious that the OP is attempting to remedy his overwhelmed situation by seeking advice! Give him (and the rest of us) a break! X2. It's clear the OP is trying to become less overwhelmed by asking questions. It would have been much more productive to offer real insight. The issue with older motorhomes that have low mileage is that it could indicate it has sat for long periods of time, which is not good for any motor vehicle. Sometimes it means they just didn't drive very far. A thorough check by a trusted mechanic as stated above is a good place to start. Ask for service records as well.

RE: Ma to Cape Hateras travel tips

Crowe...I cant say my wife wont have a heart attack when we head into a tunnel towing the rv. LOL! Hubby almost passed out driving through there. The timing of the lights flashing by affected him like a strobe light and started to make him sick. I'm not a fan of bridges. Although it takes longer we go over the Tappan Zee to avoid NYC and so we can stop at Cabelas in Hamburg, PA. Our overnight stopover is usually Cherry Hill Campground in College Park, MD. Makes it really easy to get through DC before the bulk of traffic. The down side is timing it to not hit the DC traffic on the way back.

RE: Crummy flying experiences

Everyone shops flights by cost. You get what you pay for. Very true. We have "rules" that we go by based on length of travel as well as budget. Red-eye's are first class, period. 4 hours or less is always coach. Above that depends on price. We'll also mix classes if we can. Sometimes paying a little more is worth it instead of paying for a potential change.

RE: Ma to Cape Hateras travel tips

would you mind sharing the route you take that is 12 hours from ma to cape hatteras? I'd be curious myself. Have gone down from MA multiple times, both through the tunnel and the DC route. With traffic it's usually longer. Not a fan of the bridge and tunnel.

RE: Crummy flying experiences

After being abused by more than one airline, putting up with RUDE TSA workers only then to either be cancelled or get on a filthy airplane my new rule is if I can drive it in six hours I prefer to drive. The hour to get to the airport followed by the larger airports telling you to arrive two hours prior to the flight is 3 hours, then the flights are from 60 to 90 minutes puts me at 4 to 4 1/2 and then 30 minutes to an hour to the office I am at 4 1/2 to 5 hours. All of this to experience being groped and harassed by TSA, and then stuffed into a filthy pressurized tube with a lot of other disgusted people fighting for limited overhead bin space and hoping the flight is not cancelled for some non-existing mechanical problem in order to cover for it not being full. After multiple of those experiences going to corporate headquarters I actually determined driving is not much longer, I leave when I want and the trip is actually relaxing as I am not having to worry about what stunt the airline is going to pull to make it take longer. When we all quit letting the airlines abuse us things will change, nothing but long distance flights for me going forward. In well over a million miles of flying, both personal and business, and spread over 30 years my husband has NEVER experienced any of this. Does it happen? Yes but the media also rehashes and exaggerates these stories. Many on here have been abused by rude campground staff, have complained about dirty facilities and sit in traffic for hours, not moving, trying to get to their destination. What's the difference?
