Five Finger Rapids & Midnight Dome In Yukon

The drive from Whitehorse to Tombstone Territorial Park is far, like 400 miles far. That’s too much mileage for us to make it in one go, especially knowing the Dempster Highway (which brings you to the park) is especially slow going in an RV. So we stopped at Five Finger Rapids and Midnight Dome on our way to Tombstone.

30+ Apps For Life On the Road (Updated)

Living on the road and constantly traveling to unfamiliar places towing an 8,000 lb RV can be stressful. There are a lot of unknowns and we can end up spending a lot of time and data trying to figure all kinds of things. We know it’s probably like that for all travelers – whether you’re full-timers or not. So we’ve compiled a list of apps that have made our nomadic lives easier (especially one with a limited cell data plan).

How To Protect Your Data As A Digital Nomad

Insurance can help recover after losing physical things, but in modern times data are often more precious than possessions. This is doubly true for “digital nomads” who often eschew owning expensive things and embrace going paperless for both personal and work records. If we lost access to our files, it would shut our lives down until we could get them back together. Everything is in our laptops. Insurance can’t protect against data loss. That’s why we need backups.

Tachal Dhal Ridge Route, Kluane National Park

We had this kickass plan for hiking Sheep Creek trail in Kluane National Park. During our first trip to the Tachal Dhal Visitor Center, the ranger mentioned that we could make a loop out of the trail instead of hiking it as an out and back. We were excited to finally hike a loop trail in Yukon.

What's Happening To Kluane Lake - Yukon's Vanishing Lake?

While at Kluane National Park we had been spending time in the southern end of the park. But there were two things we wanted to do in the section of the park north of Haines Junction: see Kluane Lake and hike Sheep Creek trail. Except we weren't expecting to see the lake this way...

Mountain Bike To Samuel Glacier, British Columbia

Samuel Glacier is no doubt one of our top 5 places we visited while we were in Yukon this past summer. This is a place we insist you check out if you’re in the area. Though keep in mind that Samuel Glacier isn’t actually in Yukon, but in Tatshenshini-Alsek Provincial Park, the most northwestern tip of British Columbia. It’s not far from the British Columbia/Yukon border, by Kluane National Park, about 70 miles one-way from our boondocking site next to Quill Creek. We left the Toaster behind and took a day trip there.

My Love/Hate Relationship With National Parks

I remember my first national park. It was Big Bend National Park and I was a junior in college. We drove from Florida to Texas, picking up friends along the way until it was 6 of us in two cars driving the long distance across the longhorn state. We pulled into Big Bend in the dark, our car headlights catching a pack of javelinas scampering across the road.

6 Things You Can Always Recycle - Even On The Road

We all know that recycling can be really confusing: what can be recycled and how should it be recycled? These common questions cause two unwanted things to happen: people improperly recycle and people stop recycling. Both are equally bad. I've compiled a list to help clarify the correct items to recycle, and right ways to do it.

The Art Of Solar Parking

Solar panels have to be aimed at the sun to work. I’m serious. They really do. When they are bolted to a vehicle, that doesn’t change...but the location and orientation of the rig certainly does! Combine that with the fact that the sun itself follows a varying path through the sky, depending on time of year and latitude, and you have a lot of variables to consider if your rig relies on solar for power. So where – and how – you park your RV has a big impact on how happy you’ll be with your solar panels’ performance.

Settling Down: Are The Hardships On The Road Too Hard?

These past few months seem to have been the season of full-timers, who we know from the road settling down. They close the doors to their nomadic lives as they move into their new homes or park their rigs on their newly purchased properties. There are various reasons they've said goodbye to the traveling lifestyle, consistency and friends are two of them.

Auriol Trail, Kluane National Park, Yukon

While Auriol Trail isn’t one of the best hikes in the park, it sure felt nice when we completed the 9 mile roundtrip hike in less time than it had taken us to finish some of the other shorter length hikes we’ve done in the area. The hike stayed in the boreal forest for the most part. After being spoiled with treeless views quickly into all of our other hikes, it was strange remain in the trees.
