How about carrying some extra gas to fill when it's only 1.29 just in case...

The Walmart in Whitehorse has a free dump station and water at the rear of the parking lot by the gas station. In early June by 6pm there were over 50 RV's boon-docking in the Walmart lot. Good WiFi just inside the door. The Canadian Tire store next door is a very nice store too.

Carolyn...It's Lisa I am a subscriber and was a pattern until I am using it for the resistance...and now my other YouTube channel...Space and Earth Weather...I'm going to Mississippi State for climate science with a major in meteorology...almost have my bachelors...maybe 12 more classes....anyways....I'm live under this account here as well as the main one because I have dozens of hours of footage U shot from Earthcam watching One World Trade Center be overtaken by a monster storm...no...I am not exaggerating....I watch it be shredded...just know that if someone from Space and Earth Weather talks to you that it's just me. Your videos are awesome O thought you might appreciate mine as well. Daisy says kisses to Poni

We've been traveling the other side - Labrador & Newfoundland, Nova Scotia - the small town stores are not carrying healthful food choices - the only way to find anything organic or gluten-free is the larger towns which are far and few between. Prince Edward Island is the exception, and they have some great farmers markets.

#330 Good Morning, Carolyn. I enjoyed your video with my morning coffee. Beautiful country. Canada once had a Battleship, HMCS Canada --- attached to the Royal Navy during WW1. Paid for by the people of Canada.

Hope Capone was feeling better soon after. I smiled at the Johnny Cash cds. He's music for the road. I have his Titter Tears album that I listen to a lot when I'm driving...well actually that's not quite true. I have a home made cd that I made from his Bitter Tears album and mixed some other native american sung songs to it, that I listen too when I drive. Wow what stunning views there towards the end...totally breathtaking!

Ah !! Changes in Water !! Yukon water is Pure in all small towns & Whitehorse , but drinking water from Rivers & Lakes , the Water contains different Minerals, depending on what ones Bod is used to !! But your Puppy, maybe not be used to drinking the water !! Ah, tummy upsets. A Few Years ago Home on Leave, I took one of my Registered Siberians , along with 2 Canadian Military Buddies & my American Alaskan Friend,from National Geographic , who had been embedded with us in Afghanistan . We headed off from Whitehorse to Haines Alaska , to go fishing .. Oh , My Young Registered Siberian Husky had never seen, Salt Water or an Ocean Before !! He took off , when we let him out of the Rig, before I could get his Harness on & headed straight for the Ocean ,, thinking it was a Lake , & gorged himself on Salt water !! This was not a good scenario , poor Boy , lapped up the salt water , then , became ill @@ looked at me , like I had Betrayed Him !!, then started to dig , a hole in the sand , throwing sand all over me , I was covered in wet sand !! Huskies can dig !!! My Military Buddies came down , I threw my COAT OFF, sent them away , but the whole time !! My Wonderful American Nat. Geo. Friend , was having a great time !! , Photographing it all !! My Wonderful Husky , dug that hole in the sand & put his head on the edge & continued to get ill People stopped to WATCH , on their way, to catch the Alaskan Ferry out of Haines AK. to Skagway Ak.. True Story !!! Ah , I learned a valuable lesson that day , NEVER TAKE A REGISTERED YOUNG YUKON SIBERIAN HUSKY, THAT ONLY KNOWS FRESH WATER, RIVERS CREEKS & LAKES TO THE OCEAN !! OH ,, p.s. we all, along the way , stopped gave him runs , he drank fresh water, was well provided for , but when he saw that Ocean , he took off , before I could get his harness on him.. Lived up to his Name .. Spirit of the Winter Whirlwind Mind you when he felt better , He took off running !!! ah, so many wonderful Photographs of him, running along that Beach !! The Very Spirit of Freedom !! ~~ That Belongs to All of Us !! My Nat.Geo. Photographer Friend captured Him & All of Us, on that Day .. Memories !! To Share & wish to Others !!

When my pups have tummy problems I give them my human indigestion OTC med-ranitidine. You can get the dose for dogs by googling it. Works fast.

Kelly U (30 days ago)
That last spot you stopped at was absolutely beautiful !!!! You are really getting to see some great views on your Journey . I saw right after you were talking about Capone’s little tummy ache that he was eating grass.... I had always heard they will eat grass as a way to help heal their tummies. Smart doggie! 💜🐕🐾

Loved your video! I see you have senior highlights in your hair just like I do!🤣🤣🤣😉 I noticed your Johnny Cash CD's. My best friend, who just turned 97, is Johnny Cash's 1st cousin. She can tell some really good stories about her life. She also said that when she was really young, she and her mother had to trade with the Indians for food so they didn't starve in the Winter. Well, keep up the good work with your videographer job!🤣🤣🤣😉Take care, safe travels and Happy Trails! Love ya, SCOOTER🛵

Stay safe, Capone seems like he enjoys Alaska a lot, he sure gets around well for his age, he is a trusty side kick and a great security dog

Such a beautiful place; it's wonderful to travel along with you and see all the spectacular sights!

Get bear bells!! One for Capone and one for you.
Bonita Hatcher (30 days ago)
In Newfoundland (which you HAVE to go see) what you have at that last Yukon stop is gravel pit camping. In NL this is a time honoured tradition. The gov tried to stop it, but the public resists. IN NL the pits are often carved from solid granite so you have these amazing pits with sheer rock walls... kind of amazing really.

Some places in Canada don't have bad winters at all. Little chillier than Arizona or California of course but not too bad. Lots of rain here in Victoria. We have had a couple very brisk weeks last winter and the one before and yes we even have had a bit of snow, but nothing too too terrible. I have family in Whitehorse and have been there myself but not for long. Those mountains are magnificent. I like that t-shirt and I don't find it offensive in any way. Great video Carolyn, thank you!

When I visited Fairbanks in July at 9pm... the sun was bright and it was 98 degrees! Love, love, love Alaska and so happy to be reliving my adventures through you and Capone! Safe travels... try not to step in fresh bear sh*t like I did! (smells up the camper real bad)

I would love to see 🇨🇦. Your videos are the next best thing...keep up the good work...not insulted here in Texas, just jealous...it’s 108 today!
Carolyn if you haven't left Whitehorse, try and make it up over the White Pass to Skagway. What a trip. Its beautiful and a sweet little community. Its right on the ocean and Alaska, and the whole town is a State Park, and the plants are something else there. We had quite the trip there in 1989, back in history. I am so happy to see you and Capone enjoying your trip and your everyday. You go girl. We are on your side. CDH&CDH

Enjoying your travels. You are certainly learning about Canada. Don't tell too many folks, we kinda like it not being noticed so much. Our secret.
Phil the Stalker (30 days ago)
I saw all the ice in July in previous videos, but I'd never thought about how "freezing" the air temperature can get for your RV at night. Hope you're figuring it out all the way as you go. And all of your electric systems and mechanics hold out for you!

Thank goodness 4 an alarm when I leave my lights on.
Speedy Gonzales (29 days ago)
Well, I see you still enjoying Canada and I hear how grateful you are for all we give you for free through our tax money. Now I see you still not wearing your seatbelt..... How about if you begin showing your appreciation by "respecting our laws", same as us Canadians have to do here or when we go to the USA ????? Well, let me tell ya' that is not cool, not cool at all !!! :0(

Hey Carolyn. My Vet told me a few years ago, when one of my babies has an upset stomach, that it is okay to give them Pepto Bismo. Works pretty quick and I have never had any problems. You can look on line for dosage. Capone is larger than my babies. Good luck and God bless you both. Stay safe. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🇺🇸🇺🇸

Carolyn Tolliver (30 days ago)
For darkening, did you think you could just drape a black sock over your eyes at night? It works!
