Any must see areas? I can see by your photo I need to bring a couple extra wash buckets
Figured there'd be more snow now.
Not quite Yukon yet. We are in Toad River BC. Lots to see in June but everything is closed now. We start a contract in Fairbanks next week. Get a copy of 'mile post'
Be careful of campgrounds when they say they are big rig friendly. We been put in some tights spots this trip and have the scratches and dents to prove it. Walk them out before parking. One spot looked big enough but i wish i had walked it, when i pulled through my RV sunk to the axles. Owner said she knew it was soft. Said she sank in the mud walking across it but thought a RV wouldn't have a problem. She sank 150lbs and thought 26000lbs would be OK. Right .
Check with your phone carrier before Canada. Verizon told me that calls would be .85/ min. What i didn't know scared me. I ran up $50 in roaming charges just having my phone on. It stays shut off now.
Crossing the border was a breeze. Just be informed on what paperwork you need and be honest and only answer the questions you are asked.
The roads are fine with one exception. The frost heaves are killer. You can't see them and if you hit them at full speed your trailer with catch some air. Not fun. Majority of them are marked but the markings are a small sign in a little pails and hard to see. If you see one, slow down. If you have airbags, I'd love to hear how your truck does with the heaves.
Try to get yourself a device or app that shows your speed in km/h. I find it helpful. When you come to a 50 km/h curve, you won't have to do any math and my Ford stock speedometer is worthless for km.
So far we've seen sheep and coyote but are hoping for bear, moose and caribou. Hopefully not in the ,middle of the road. Lol
Be safe and don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have
