RE: Which 5er for double tow?

A truck camper is a nice alternative to tent camping. Not as roomy as a fifth wheel, but darn comfy. No need to double tow...

RE: When to leave for fall colors

This year, early September was the time to be someplace else if you have a snow allergy. The first hint of snow was August 20, with the mountains going white. Last week there was snow on the Alaska Highway through Yukon. Then this week we had a warm spell and most of the snow has melted. Now it is back in the forecast for tonight. Yet, it isn't uncommon to be snow free through September and October. It has been a wet summer and with the cooler fall temperatures this has meant early snow.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

A good article about some of the issues associated with melting permafrost. www.cbc.ca/thawing-permafrost-threatens-food-security Note that permafrost isn't ground that just freezes each winter. It is ground that is permanently frozen in winter & summer. Once it melts, it is no longer permanently frozen, it instead goes through a freeze/thaw cycle each year.

RE: A good reason not to follow FB advice...update 9/18

I don't know the answer but thought I would share a picture of Kodi's claws when we rescued him in October 2010. Somewhat similar looking. He had been picked up as a stray, then confined in an indoor wet concrete-floored enclosure on deathrow for 30 days, then rescued by a no-kill shelter where he had been for about 90 days, with an outdoor wet concrete floor--wet due to the weather on damp Vancouver Island. There wasn't any associated health issue, the problem cleared up with good diet, lots of exercise and good living conditions. His claws are nicely white now, solid as a rock too. His foot pads are also good. I suspect it was stress and poor living conditions that caused the problem for him. I was concerned back then, so took this picture of his foot... http://yukonsights.ca/images/Family/20101104_Kodi_15.jpg width=700

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

The turnoff for Haines Alaska is along this section of the Alcan hwy and it is 155 miles of perfect road. It looks like it was paved yesterday. It gets the same weather as the Alcan does, so I don't believe the excuses of Permafrost and Frost Heaves. The difference is; It gets maintained. Shame on Yukon Gov't. Well, considering it IS the Yukon Gov't that maintains most of the Haines Road, up to the US border...and considering it was repaved this year and some of it last year and some the year before... Not much melting permafrost along the Haines Road to affect the highway. Not much truck traffic to break it up either. Here's some light reading in non-techie terms about the problems with permafrost www.hpw.gov.yk.ca/trans/engineering/shakwak_and_permafrost.html www.scientificamerican.com/alaska-highway-getting-more-bumps-in-the-road/ Geoscientists from the center have collected samples of permafrost (right) along the 1,390-mile-long highway for the past three summers to record how global warming is changing the ground and to predict where future damage may appear. Roadways with recurring damage from thawing permafrost cost about 10 times more than average roads to maintain

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

There's a steady stream of RVs heading south now. Many with Alaska plates also vacating the state for the winter season. Safe travels.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

The highway crews in Yukon are on a never-ending cycle of repair. Each day, new potholes appear in the highway. I drive in to Whitehorse in the morning, and then in afternoon have to keep my eyes open for new holes that appear during the day. There's a few spots where they fixed the frost heaves this spring, and those spots have sunk/risen again already. There are sections of highway that continuously sink. There are some places where they monitor the movement with cameras. Three years ago there was a complete rebuild of a stretch near our place, and it is falling apart already. Tonight on my way home, I was following a 35 foot (or thereabouts) Class A towing a car trailer with a mid-sized SUV on it. The RV was moving at 70 mph. Yup, seventy! When it hit the frost heaves, the bouncing was spectacular. No brake lights, no slowing. Pedal to the metal. Count on that hitch breaking before reaching the Alaska border. I had to finally pass doing 85 mph, but I know where the dips and pavement breaks are and drive a little Honda Fit that doesn't get airborne on the heaves.

RE: Mt. McKinley is once again Denali

Almost everyone but Ohioans has been calling it Denali for 30 yrs. In 1982 on my 3rd attempt, I finally stood on its summit. Once you've been there, Denali "the great one" is the appropriate name. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-pcNAEVECaV0/RpL39_ltprI/AAAAAAAAAN0/hvCIXsQNLRE/s720-Ic42/Image%2525200136.jpg width=500 You stood up there! WOW ! Here's a view of the peak, a zoomed view from Eielson Visitor Center. I looked for your foot prints... :B http://yukonsights.ca/images/Alaska/Park/20100906_Denali_2931.jpg width=700

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

The 300 or so miles from Whitehorse to Alaskan border are in terrible condition. It seems to me that the Yukon Gov't doesn't care about the travelers on this section of road because there's very few places for tourists to spend their money here. It is obvious that they don't spend much on road maintenance here. Until a few years ago, the upgrades for the Haines Junction to Beaver Creek section were the responsibility of the American government because 90% of the traffic using that section are Americans. When funding was pulled, the improvements also lagged. Through the year, the semi-truck traffic hauling to Alaska are very hard on the highway, especially during spring break-up. It's impossible to keep up with the road damage caused by Mother Nature and the heavy loads. Perhaps the solution is to just stop the transports from using the highway so tourists can enjoy a better ride :B

RE: Mt. McKinley is once again Denali

Alaskans' perspective from the Alaska Dispatch News McKinley no more: America's tallest peak to be renamed Denali Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, said in an email that "Denali belongs to Alaska and its citizens. The naming rights already went to ancestors of the Alaska Native people, like those of my wife’s family. For decades, Alaskans and members of our congressional delegation have been fighting for Denali to be recognized by the federal government by its true name. I’m gratified that the president respected this.”

RE: Adventure 8FB

We purchased a used 8' Adventurer from Fraserway in Whitehorse. Excellent service, good people. The model we bought fit long or shortbox. On our shortbox, the centre of gravity is a few inches in front of the rear axle too. Here's our test fit before buying. http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20120801_Camper.jpg width=700
