Someone is hunting or Target practice, awww Capone doesn't like that loud stuff, niether do my dogs
Tina Scott (1 month ago)
Capone can get everything done that u need so much cheaper at humane society or the SPCA , much cheaper..for the tick and flea protection I buy it on line on Amazon ..much cheaper online , but he has to be checked for worms before you give him that , I believe

Be careful, bears are everywhere in Alaska, even in Virginia, so please be careful 💓#BEKIND -- love that saying btw !

Hi Carolyn! Love your videos ! I also found a great channel ,that's so motivational, it's called girl in the woods She cooks outside on a campfire, she's very uplifting too..with her lil cooking outside stuff

América hás beautiful places, indeed... but I wouldn’t dare to go there. People with guns are mor3 scary than any salvage animal. I’d rather meet with bears than with those humans. Be safe!

Carolyn, I am going to start living in our 32' RV starting the 9th! We, myself, a 48 year-old woman, and my two adult (21 and 23 year-old) children are going to start in the woods near Klamath Falls. We live in town. We have put in our month resignation, and we are now about to move the remaining of our 3-bdrm apartment belongings out. I sold everything, to include the movers' costs, for about $300! Just to move, and gave most of our things away. Anyways, I will post the video. I hope you will follow us as we follow you. I must say, you are my favorite, as we are the same age, and we come from a very similar background, from the little I know about you. We have no pets. I guess, we are our own pets to each other, if you know what I mean--good Faithful, Loyal, Loving companions. Anyways, I wanted to tell you about bears. BEARS HATE AMMONIA!!! Please get some. Put some in a spray bottle. Put it around your campsite. Spray on boots, pants if you walk. Just keep it with you. ~P

That was just beautiful where you stayed in this video. Is that a campsite or a national park or just a place that you found to park and stay? My wife and I would love to stay at a place like that when we start RV'ing..Thanks.

I respect and admire you. Hope to meet you someday. As my clock clicks down to my last day of work (June 29) and my life on the road, I will be watching as you head to Alaska. I look forward to all of your videos and hope Capone passes his exam with flying colors. You're the best!

Had a border collie horribly afraid of thunder. Tried swaddling, training, favorite treats and toys ..... everything but drugs. He knew 1 hour before a thunderstorm. What worked after 12 years was behavior modification using raw meat - the only treat that would even get his attention during those events. Every time he paid attention to me and divorced himself from his fear obsession - for just an instant - he got a tiny bit of raw meat. In the end he was still startled, but stayed engaged and in control AND no longer had wild eyes and trying to stuff himself between the wall and mattress. Took time and patience. Trying to find the one treat he could not say no to was the hard part. The rest was training.

Enjoy the wildlife. They wont attack you. Wolverines: no recorded deaths ever. Bears: 1 death per year. All kinds. Cougar: less than 1 per year Wolf: rarely even seen. Over the years some recorded bites. Moose and buffalo a bit more dangerous. Then lightning and floods. More likely to be killed by dog, cow, horse, bees, deer, etc. Even more likely to get killed by another car. DRIVE DEFENSIVELY!

Remember, no (zero nada) pistols or assault rifles into Canada. Riles and shotguns must be declared at border with permit.

So upsetting to see the garbage strewn all around. Those kind of people need to be barred from using our beautiful countryside. They should have to work with inmates picking up other people's trash. Maybe that would make them think twice before raping our pristine land.

Thanks, dear Carolyn for making these videos. I don't know if I will ever get to the PNW. I live in the forest- surrounded by old growth trees. The canopy is the thickest I've ever seen it during the 15 years I've here. I love it- can't get enough of the green.

Thank you for watching Amy! I have so much more to share!! Gorgeous landscapes abound!

Gorgeous country! Wow they sounded like gun shots to me. Not sure what your views are to carry a gun, but I have heard a few folks talking about Bear spray and how it can blow back in the wind and cover a person with it instead of the bear .... extremely dangerous! I personally think that we need a few different back ups, I'm not a RVer and don't live permanent in America so not sure what Different options you guys have, but make no mistake about it if I could carry a gun ...I would! I was watching the TV series Yukon Men, this guy and his wife had to shoot a bear, she was also talking about her friend whom had to watch her husband mauled to death by a bear, they had no gun to protect themselves. I don't think bear attacks are frequent ....but that is irrelevant! ....It Only takes 1 to attack you when your walking in the woods ....and your screwed! All the other statistics won't mean S**t! No difference really from protection when in an RV, it Only takes 1 wrong camper to show up near you and give you some crap, if a person don't have some things to protect themselves ....they are gonna have problems! Don't think I've seen any RVer making a video on things to protect RVers. I think a few basic are vital ....baseball bat, maybe nunchucks, baton Etc. A good hunting knife has loads of great uses while camping, and a great tool to defend yourself if needed. I think protection of one's self while RVing has got to be up thier and as important as Water, Food, Heat Etc.

Just another dumb ass gun shooter. i doubt you are allowed to discharge firearms in a campground? These types respect nobody. Phone the local sheriff.

Trying to catch up on my videos, We watch our 2 in a half old grandson & 2mo. old granddaughter, Thursedays is our day off of  watching. Our daughter goes to school for an LPN & works at night.

Guess the gun boomers are preparing you for Alaska! So nice to see Capone!, keep those drops on hand for him. I carried Bear Bells with me when we were in the woods (they sell them all over and advise you to carry them).

I was born and raised in Seattle, and now live just outside the City limits. I LOVE the progressive politics here! It's such a great home base, because you can travel to so many places that aren't too awful far away. That was a beautiful camping spot you had, but WTF is it with people who dump their garbage in those beautiful places! And as for those who enjoy shooting their guns for the hell of it.....Poor Capone!

Carolyn's RV Life I only have a few gray hairs (I'll be 55 in 2 weeks) but when my daughter tried picking them out I told her leave them alone, I earned them. And I also go natural, have all my life. Maybelline & Cover girl never made a dime off me!! :)

Skip, I know you meant this as an insult, but I take it as a huge compliment. I could still be spending hundreds a month to look what society tells women we should look like as we age, but instead, I've chosen to go natural. If you have a problem with it, that's your issue, not mine!! hugs and kisses - big sloppy wet, gray haired, wrinkly face kisses... muah!

You should put that 5 gallon jerry can holder by your spare tire to work. Looks like you would also need a strap, but can fill the container with fuel or water for your journey to Alaska.

I'm all worried about your safety from bears. Capone too. Especially Capone because he might run after a bear. I hope you have bear spray. Maybe an air horn would be a good defense too. I'm typing this and now you are talking about bears yourself, lol. You don't need heartworm meds. You're out of the zone. Please read this link belowand save your hard earned money... https://terriermandotcom.blogspot.com/2008/05/billion-dollar-heartworm-scam.html

I have lived in Alaska all of my life and run/hike everyday and have never had a bear encounter on the trails. I have had bears on my deck and at time they have come up to the screen door at my cabin. I do carry bear spray when hiking and running just incase. At our cabin at times I carry a gun but in 24 years have never had to use it. As for fleas and heart worm in Alaska we dont have to worry about that. Now having crossed the border multiple times I have never been asked for the livestock papers on our pets but always have them. Truth be told we have never had any issues crossing into Canada the only issues we have had is getting back into the lower 48 or Alaska. It has been dramatic everytime.

You should come up Highway 97/197 to The Dalles ,Oregon and then drive to Portland through the Beautiful Columbia River Gorge! You would love it-seriously majestic & beautiful. I live in this area and it is amazing. Donna Ollikkala

Are you subscribed to "Alaskan Motorhome" from Fairbanks and "His and Hers VLOG" from Seward? His and Hers have videos of the trip to and from Alaska you may find interesting. The " Long Long Honeymoon" have videos too of the trip in an Airstream.
poor pooch, my lab shakes when she hears guns too.

https://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/hunting/ There is a spring controlled hunt of black bear. Plus you can target shoot on public lands in certain areas. Public land means public.... aka Everyone. Not just boondockers.
Carolyn's RV Life (1 month ago)
Carol, Yes, we all have a right to use public lands, I don't believe I was saying otherwise. That doesn't mean I have to enjoy the sound of gunshots and bombs going off yards from my RV. As it's a free country, I honored their freedom and left

I wish I was going with you! In 2006 I was on a 3-week bus tour from Iowa through Canada, The Yukon, then Alaska! Flew home the last day. I was ready to spend another 2-3 weeks coming home, but, flying home was part of the scheduled trip. Still have the maps, hotel brochures & of course pics. Bawwwwwwllllll!

Hmmmm... 67,000 SUBSCRIBERS disagree with your assessment of my videos. Good luck and happy travels. I hope you find happiness and peace
The place is so beautiful and breathtaking. And it brakes my heart to see that people have to dump sh..t in the wood. Why do people have to be that way. Be careful on your journey. Injoy your trip.

Tom (1 month ago)
the smaller gun noises were probably a 22 rifle or small hand gun...the louder ...bombs ..as you put it...were probably a shotgun...anyway they were hunters...or just recreational shooters...if your dog were around such things he would get used to it and not even notice.. my dogs did....but that's because I have done a lot of recreational shooting myself..in the past...although I'm not into shotguns...never could hit anything with one......woodsmn

I live in North Pole just outside of Fairbanks. My husband and I bought a log cabin here 7 years ago with the intention of moving back to Washington in a few years but fell in love with the people here and decided to stay. You shouldn't leave Alaska without checking out Chena Hot Springs. I know we are a long ways from Anchorage - the place everyone seems to visit - but we have some of the most beautiful scenery up here. And the Parks Highway is amazing! I hope you enjoy your visit, in spite of coming during tourist season. There are way too many things to see and do in one summer but I hope you make it to the interior. I'd love to visit!

One reason I wouldn't want to live an rv life is that the rangers seem to like to knock on campers doors in the middle of the night and I would hate that . Why not knock on the door in the morning , afternoon or early evening . They seem to sense when a female is there . If you scream & yell at them , they might have you arrested and or have your rig towed .

Your smile puts a big smile on my face. Thank you for making my Day Better. Sounds like a 410 rifle. Darn noises interfered with our solitude. Oh CAROLYN, what a perfect shot of the reflection in the water hole. Great job !!!! Give CAPONE big hugs and sweet kisses for me. I just love his personality. 1 in a Million. Safe travels I'm so excited about your/our trip. By sharing this with all of us you help in so many ways. I personally can't thank you enough for all you have given to my life and well being.

Carolyn's RV Life (1 month ago)
because it was fucking l loud, it was a popular camping place with kids and dogs roaming around. i have no problem with guns, but i believe gun owners need to be more responsible about where they shoot. Not a hundred yards from a busy highway with families camping yards away. Would you agree?

Yes, get the health certificate. But you may not even be asked about it. Especially if he's sleeping quietly in the back out of sight and you aren't searched. Get ready to see mountain goats, black bears, moose and bison in Canada. Have your insurance and registration cards within an arms length and easy to find. Also passport and drivers license. Medicine in original containers. Don't forget to transfer money into Canadian.
