You will love Alaska I got spent three weeks there when I graduated from high school that was my graduation present beautiful country water and fish and bear and Moose are extremely big very pricey though but what I did like that and I was there when I used to go out like you going to the bars when I was 18 and dance all night long and enjoy myself but the beauty is something else something you will never ever forget

Oh Canada, Our home and native land. True patriot love, in all our sons command. With Glowing hearts we see thee rise, the true north strong and free. From far and wide Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee. God keep our land, glorious and free. Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee...Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee. (The words in English, to our national anthem for Joanne who sang along in French...In the different languages they say two completely different messages..go figure...LOL)

OMG new subscriber you looked like you were having sooooo much fun I felt it thank you for this video. It was like I was watching a movie
Mary Ferguson (11 days ago)
when I try to figure out if its a good buy or not, for me being Canadian and being in the states I just add 3 dollars or every ten i'm spending to figure out if its a good price or not.

Really? I got hundreds of comments from Canadians thanking me for including it. ONly goes to show with a bit successsful channel, I can't please everyone.
Maria Crane (21 days ago)
Love the music you used on here. Native American flutes are my favorite and the Canadian anthem was a nice touch!
Maria Crane (21 days ago)
I'm definitely working on traveling through Canada. I'm moving into my van on Monday where it will be parked on my friends property for a while until I get everything situated and decide what to do. But Canada is definitely on the list of places to travel through and if the political climate in this country doesn't change or God forbid gets worse I may even stay there LOL
Robin Girard (22 days ago)
I'm so envious of your life! Thank you for taking me along.
Michelle Pucca (22 days ago)

I love your videos Carolyn your dog is cool. I’m in Australia planning on living the same way as if 2019. Have travelled before with my chihuahua she’s nearly 14 now so we are working towards manifesting our next rig then we’ll be off ♥️
The Traveling Vegans (27 days ago)
Hey, thanks for sharing the vegetarian and vegan options they have. I wondered with a population that small would it be difficult to buy vegan (I am vegan too), I was impressed!

In NZ we get a big fine for not wearing a seatbelt, is wearing a seatbelt optional in the states and Canada? Mind you our road toll is horrendous and so are our roads and drivers.

San Diego, CA, June 18, 2018, Monday, 9:32 pm: Loved this video, Carolyn. I was singin along with ya to Billy Joel. Loved the Canadian anthem in the beginning. Nice version. And, your Itasca is gorgeous. So glad you got outta that money pit of an RV. The vegan sandwich looked really good. Yum.

Carolyn, you are aware that dogs are carnivores.
karile7 (1 month ago)
Carolyn, how are you? I didn't mean to sound so harsh in my prior comment, I'm sorry, I used to be vegan and I know a lot of "well meaning" vegans that feed their carnivorous pets a primarily veggie diet because of their beliefs. I've been watching you since you started your journey and I wish you the best. Tell Capone I said hi.

Karile, you are aware my dog eats meat.

Don’t stick your thumbnail into an avocado someone else might eat. You should never bruise or squeeze fruit and vegetables and put them back on the pile. It spoils them. And by showing it to us, you are teaching us to do it. Spreads germs.

Glad to be following you again.your pup and mine both eat. Sweet potatoes yeah. I just had a vet visit where my vet told me that my homemade dog food with the sweet potato will give him cavities. I was taken back but I had a zinger for the turd 💩 I told him I bought him his own electric too and was using his vet prescribed chicken flavored toothpaste. I only told him this after my pup had a clean bill of health and he could not believe how great his teeth were. Aka no tarter. He did not have another thing to add to the visit and I was sure add I was not putting him on any expensive dog food. My food is packed w vitamins using real fresh veggies. Oh yeah!

Like the way Capone goes to the bed and puts head under pillow every time someone starts singing, not mentioning any names. Just saying. (Love ya)

Do you smoke Cheeba on the road?

I loved the History Lesson voice-over with the visual travelling road footage. Where did you go to change your money over or did that happen automatically at the ATM????? Hey, Carolyn, you might want to go to bitlydotcom and bitly all your links, because they do an independent audit of all your hits, clicks and buys. They track all of that for you independent of those links. Like an outside auditor keeping track of your interest.

Enjoyed again! Squeeze to Capone! What is your favorite vegan cheese brand?
gooroobob (1 month ago)
very nice stuff Carolyn, I see most of your videos. Wondered when you do meetups as have not seen you meetup with anyone. Might give you a topic for another Video. Also i know you talk to the dog a lot and that is great i think. Have you confused him as he has three names maybe or he don't respond to any.

HI, Carolyn, according to matadornetwork.com Alaska has the highest gun ownership rate of any other state at 61.7%. Are you afraid for your safety? wonder what is going on in your mind since you made a great effort to visit the most heavily armed state in the USA?

Realise "first peoples" is a propaganda term and usually used attack White people's rights to land.

you can spend Canadian quarters, dimes and nickels in Alaska at American face value just letting you know:)
jay super (1 month ago)
Right now you get $1.30 Canadian for you US $1.00. Your best bet is to pay with your credit card to get the best rate. Many businesses in Canada will only give you "par" for your US dollars.

Me thinks you need a small solar pocket calculator for that Canadian conversion & shopping...lol. Used to be if you dropped a twoonie ($2) the center would fall out. Alert! There is much more fauna in the north so eyes on Capone! Love the Canadian Rockies!

Awesome videos. Just started watching. Love the way you pet the dog while you drive, I do the same thing. I don't know much about you tube so dumb question, why do you have to sing to be able to monetize? I went back and watched all your videos to get an idea about how you got started.

I like the time lapse while driving, like Pandamonium does. Good content in a short amount of time. Real life experiences on video are preparing me for my escape. !

What did you mean when you were singing & driving saying that you had to do that to get monitized?
Taraz Pariseau (1 month ago)
im confused. i thought you said you have to keep singing to monetize your videos. i thought if you played over 15 seconds of any music they monetized the artist of the music, im missing something. lol

Mosquitoes like banana eaters apparently. We don t eat them come camping season, makes a diff for us in Ontario.
Marie Ouellette (1 month ago)
Manon Arcand ... yep, mosquitoes are attracted to banana eaters. If you take a B12 everyday, the mosquitoes will leave you alone. They hate the smell of B12 in the blood.

I wore my shirt today on my way from SoCal to Monterey, Ca. Be Kind, Be Free, Be Happy. My BFF in Pismo Beach loved it. I have my 12 year old grand daughter with me, we have been planning/dreaming about this trip for 2 years. It's finally come to fruition. We are having a blast. Lots of things to see and do. Thank you, Carolyn...for what you do, who you are and everything in between. <3
