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

RE: have you ever wondered

"Pillow", I think. Although the other probably thinks I'm "BusyBody". Always need to check her feet and ears and she doesn't like it.

RE: Good Evening campers... How do you light up the night?

We have 24 hours of daylight in summer, so no artificial light needed. In the fall or spring... http://yukonsights.ca/images/Yukon/Aurora/20140412_Aurora_059.jpg width=700

RE: Adventure 8FB

It's a Adventure 8SB. Are you sure that's the right name and model? Could it be an Adventurer? http://www.amlrv.com/truck-campers/

RE: 32bit vs 64bit machines

My machine from Nov 2007 is 32 bit. It was a high-end system back then, designed to run AutoCAD, Photoshop, both at the same time even. Last year I reformatted the hard drive with the operating system (prefer my desktops to have two internal hard drives - one for the operating system and one for my files) and loaded Windows 7. Cleaning up the operating system by getting rid of the seven years of Windows updates made a huge difference. It runs just fine and is the computer my average computer-user hubby uses now. I have a newer 64-bit high end desktop, again because I multi-task with numerous memory-hog programs open at a time. And I don't mind getting on my old computer (his computer) at all - it does everything well, and doesn't feel slow. And it also is compatible with a piece of hardware I have (an old Hauppauge PVR) that won't work with my 64-bit system. So if I want to record an old VHS tape to digital, I use the 32-bit system with my vintage VHS player and the Hauppauge.

RE: Upgrading to new computer

My desktop from Nov 2007 started to have issues running XP last year. Kept crashing, stalling, hanging... I reformatted the drive and installed Win7 Professional on it. Now, it runs like new again without any issues. Reasonably quick too, despite its age. Now my laptop with Vista is starting to get fussy, so it may soon be facing the same treatment. Can't help but wonder if Microsoft introduces some problems in updates just to encourage people to upgrade. Or maybe it's just years and years of updates that makes the system get cludgie.

RE: Sooke to port refrew

The West Coast Road would be do-able with your 37 footer BUT then you'd be backtracking out again and still driving the Malahat. The Pacific Marine Road from Port Renfrew through to Cowichan Lake is NOT a road I'd pull a 37' fifth wheel through. It's an old logging road that has had some upgrades and is a pleasant enough drive in a vehicle but would be a slow go with that large of a fifth wheel. Malahat is highway standard and busy, but not a problem.

RE: towing 21 footer with full size truck

We pulled a 1992 17' fifth wheel with our 2002 F-250 4x4 shortbox. Perfect fit after the fifth wheel axles were flipped. http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20050608_Duluth_04.jpg width=700 Before the axles were flipped it towed nicely behind our older F-150 4x4. You can see the difference in height above the tires. http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20040828_Prowler_5.jpg width=700

RE: Win 10 data update costs, you thinkk its bad Here

Here in Yukon, Canada, I have S-L-O-W internet and a data cap. The infrastructure won't let me have a faster connection. No cellular service either. So must rely on DSL via the phone line. Will be sticking with Win7 for a long while yet.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2016

Most RVers travelling to Alaska whip on through Yukon. Yet, if one enjoys exploring backroads and drycamping away from the crowds, Yukon has much to offer. Yukon has a population of about 36,000, with about 28,000 of those living in Whitehorse. Most of the others live in the smaller communities. Then there's a few of us scattered here and there with wildlife for our neighbors. It's been a busy summer for animals in our area - moose, bear, elk, wolf, lynx and bison nearby.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

The seasons are switching, fall colour is creeping in. Willows are changing to yellow and the hills around our place are losing their greenness. Had our first frost last week, had to s****e my windshield! Days are warm but the nights are starting to hover around freezing. This was yesterday, August 16 on a mountain to the south of us. http://yukonsights.ca/images/Yukon/Ibex/20150816_FallColour_9.jpg width=800 In 2012 the mountains had the first snow on August 29 http://yukonsights.ca/images/Yukon/Ibex/20120829_KusawaValley_12.jpg width=800

RE: Northern lights camping

They've been showing over Yukon for the past week. A good show last night around midnight. Apparently still up there this morning but the sun is too bright to see them!

RE: Top of World Highway

The American side is lowland with much moisture in the ground. It is subject to freezing and thawing, and some of it would have had permafrost before the road construction. End result is many frost heaves and potholes, similar to the Alaska Highway around Beaver Creek. The Canadian side is higher elevation, less moisture in the ground, lots of rock. There's much snow there in winter, but the ground doesn't hold moisture so it doesn't freeze/thaw & heave in the same way because it is rock, rock and more rock.

RE: Gas mileage with a Truck Camper

We have a 25' fifth wheel and an 8' camper, and an F-250 7.3L PSD. Mileage with the camper is better. I haven't kept track of the exact mpg BUT know we make better distance with the camper than with the fifth wheel. We can usually travel faster too - the AK Hwy has lots of frost heaves and with the fifth wheel we usually travel about 45 mph, sometimes slower if the area is very rough. With the camper we might move along at 55 mph until we hit a rough area.

RE: Use caution camping in the Chilcotin!

About five years ago we were looking to move from Vancouver Island to a quieter area. We had always liked the landscape between Lac La Hache and Bill's Puddle (Williams Lake ;) ) so chatted with various residents on our numerous trips through the area. I'd make comments about how peaceful it seemed, how lovely the area was, how nice the lake areas were... And locals would start talking about the vandalism and thefts. We were told to not leave our vehicle unattended anywhere and if we did expect it to be spray-painted, broken in to, vandalized, or not be there when we returned. I asked about the properties around the lakes in the area. Advice was to get a good security system. People clucked about the problems in the area rather than the peacefulness. So we struck that area off our list of beautiful places we thought we could live in.

RE: My Dog Knew I had Cancer

One of my dogs smells things. I let my cousin know that something must be wrong with her dog because my dog was concerned about it. She didn't think much of my advice...her dog died three months later. A previous dog would sniff the femur area of our other dog, who had bone cancer there. He knew something was wrong with that femur and he was right.
