Wow no seatbelt again I know you’re a do what you want when you want type of person but it would be nice for the first responders to find a person buckled in and alive after a truck runs you off the road and into a simple ditch versus searching through the bushes for a lifeless body flipped out the window and got smashed by their RV or hit one of the large moose that dart out in front of RVs quite often in Alaska The freedom of no braw and the freedom of no seatbelt are not quite the same at least do us all a favor and have a note somewhere in your RV So we know what we can do with your body after we find you dead with Capone Licking your cold face. Go ahead blow this off as just another troll.
Carolyn's RV Life (10 days ago)
Bird, a troll?? No, I don't take unsolicited advice as trolling. I take it as unsolicited advice from a person I've never met and don't know from Adam. But the first responders in the world thank you for considering their feelings over my freedom of choice
Kyle Higgins (10 days ago)
Glad you are enjoying Alaska! BEST trip ever! Just be aware... Alaskan locals love their guns... shooting them off at all times and don't care!
Patty 64 (11 days ago)
It’s so beautiful there a friend of mine lived there for 5 years, I think they’ve moved back to Virginia now. She had some gorgeous pictures of Alaska. Enjoy Alaska! Hugs

Carla Prevost (12 days ago)
Beautiful. I've always wanted to go to Alaska. Thank you.
Sue AtTheLittleShack (12 days ago)
So good to see someone as excited as I am about the north country! Stewart/Hyder is an amazing area. By now you may have already passed by our place on the Cassiar Highway. It is the last part of the BC side of the border before entering the Yukon. Not there at the moment otherwise I'd stand out on the road and invite you in!
Tanya Seals (12 days ago)
I think I want to live there😁😁

Yay a shot of the sign Entering Alaska...and the birds are singing!💙 the Mail Plane was awesome! Such amazing footage...it’s so fun tagging along in this journey of yours! Can’t wait for more! 🌲
pqlover (12 days ago)
The guys that honked were just jealous because they were on their way to/from work and you're living it up in an RV!
Leslie O'Brien (12 days ago)
Perhaps the sign discouraging larger rigs from traveling on it to the glacier is because of permafrost under the gravel roadway and it gets soft in warmer weather? Anyway, so happy for you and excited that you share this with us!
Dea M (13 days ago)
My sister took me on a 14-night cruise last fall to Alaska. We took the seaplane ride and it is more amazing in the plane. I hope you will take a ride. Not sure what you will do with Capone, but maybe he can stay in the shop. Enjoy! I am smiling with you!

Hi Carolyn. Do you have any videos on best internet service for road/RV trips? What you suggest for phone service and GOOD Internet service. I also need for working on road etc.. Thank you.
Tinlizzy (13 days ago)
Thanks Carolyn. Really enjoy you sharing the history of places you visit. Be safe. ((Hugs)) ♥️🐶 Anyone here followed the Alaska bush family that lived up there and a few others? Alaska sure is beautiful but, I know I would not want to be there during winter, otherwise would love to visit.

It would have been cool if you had gone into the General Store and shown us what they stock.
Colleen Mercer (13 days ago)
Oh, how I want to do what you’re doing!! Life and those circumstances keep me from that lifestyle for now. Maybe someday when my son is grown and I can convince my husband to do this way of life with me...

Andrew Moura (13 days ago)
Enjoyed this vid. Alaska is still natural and sparsely populated. Of all the RV free camping you tubers, it appears U have ventured out the farthest. Thanks for sharing.
Bren Bren (13 days ago)
Love it!  A sign stating may someplace may not be recommended for an RV is a dare for Carolyn LOL!  And a classic Carolyn moment...."Let's go check it out just a little ways..."  and drives on forever!  HA! Thanks for sharing!

Kathy Adam (14 days ago)
The beauty brought me to tears. I'm so happy for you. Love the beautiful smile on your face. To catch the sea plane upon arrival was amazing. The quaint buildings with wooden signs, buntings was so amazing. I'm tickled pink over this trip. What amazingly beautiful scenery. Oh, lol Lol about CAPONE checking out the new camera. That shot is worth a million. Thank you.

How old is Capone?

best part of this video is........CAPONE'S NOSE !!
Kathy Macdonald (14 days ago)
Focus in on this vibe, Carolyn. THIS vibe is what you'll reflect on in the tougher times on the road. Remember it deeply and hold on to that feeling. You SO did it, girl!!!

WOW WOW WOW!!!! 1st. I don’t ever think I have seen you SO happy and it just made me so excited for you !!!! 2cd. I just LOVE that little town with the great BIG view .... I mean that is some kind of beautiful !!!! And 3rd. Capone and his sniffy nose was just so precious. 🐕🐾 he is such a sweetie and I can’t even tell you how happy I am for you... and I just hope every day is as great for you as this one. I can’t thank you enough for taking us along!! 🌸🐻
Dale Marshall (14 days ago)
Good thing you turned around. Although the road was good for a while, when you start up the Salmon Glacier it is one lane road and extremely rough. We were a little concerned just driving our pickup to the top.
Linda Chenier (14 days ago)
Stewart n Hyder was my favourite part of going to Alaska. I’d go back the Stewart and Hyder in a heartbeat. I loved the glaciers and long waterfalls and the waterfalls were so noisy.
Robin Moore (14 days ago)
I'm so homesick 😭❣
Brenda Brown (14 days ago)
Thank you for the beautiful videos you post about your trip. Feels like I'm riding along with you.

Curious where you will be going after this...My favorite videos were when you were in different parts of the South...Wondering if you are going to go to the East Coast ...like New York and Maine etc.
aikanae1 (15 days ago)
"I might never return" - yea, that's what I was thinking. It'd be interesting to over winter there. SE Alaska isn't as cold as further north. Ever consider the Alaska ferry? I guess it stops at little islands and you used to be able to get on and off.

Dayna Silvey (15 days ago)
So glad you arrived at that time. That is a great smile.
ROCK RIVER JACK (15 days ago)
You know how they say, you start looking like your dog, there was a frame of your video right after mail call and it cut to you and Capone in the RV and you both had the biggest grins on both your faces and you too looked too much alike! Awesome! Safe Travels!
Carolyn's RV Life (14 days ago)
Jack, as a nomad, there is ALWAYS more to see. I decided to leave some things for the next time I'm there! Thanks for watching! Carolyn
Mike Stansberry (15 days ago)
Your smile was great it would have been even bigger if you had gone all the way to the glacier or done the bear walk at fish creek. You can see all of Alaska at Hyder except for Denali of course. Seeing your happy face brings back good memories. M
Shannon Lowe (15 days ago)
Carolyn, you are making me homesick, I grew up in Ketchikan until I was 9 years old and I remember it well enough that I feel actually homesick for what you are seeing. I hope to get back someday, but enjoy for me in the meantime.
MsSoozy (15 days ago)
What a great spot Hyder is, I would stay there for a night. Great seeing that float plane taking off! So good to see you smiling so BIG! The sound of that river would make me sleep like a babe. :)
lanconra (15 days ago)
WOW, that is a truly bee yoo tee full place. I bet its like another world in the winter. Very nice
Kerry Loper (15 days ago)
Great video. How do people give it a thumbs down? I just don’t get it. People are weird. Beautiful!!! Safe travels.
hurstma59 (15 days ago)
Happy you’re there and will have the opportunity to see more of the state than the average tourist who take an Alaska Cruise.
Karen M Lane (15 days ago)
I used to live in Alaska.  This makes me homesick for the place.  Great video.
kat kin (15 days ago)
The reason they prohibit large vehicles on that road is to keep it nice, big heavy vehicles do tend to tear up the surface and leave ruts making it hard to maintain and not nice for small vehicles. Just something to think about.
ROWENA PHILBECK (15 days ago)
How great!! You are there. The plane was awesome and I can almost smell the fresh air when seeing your videos. Thanks and enjoy!!
David McDonald (15 days ago)
Really enjoying your videos, I found you while doing some research for my own series of renovating a School Bus to work to retire & let your company pay for the travels. I will work till I die like so many others but at least it's remote work. Series is "MrBoogie Takes the Bus to Work". I don't buy a lot of stuff from videos but did buy your book & found some great tips in there. Still getting my series going but have to say your editing on this video is great adding a lot more travel scenes along with the narration. Great job. Still working on the Branding for YouTube but here is a link if you want to take a look & give me some pointers, already know the intro needs work: https://youtu.be/M_7-7DK-Bx4 Enjoy Alaska & be safe!
