Today was a work, prep and maintenance day. Night Fury went in for a checkup and I am pleased to report she is in great health and ready for the next leg of our Yukon adventure. I had a tune-up at the massage therapist too and am much improved for it.
Experimented with cold weather layers a bit on the weekend and have found a good combo. It necessitated a couple of purchases, but I think will be worth it. I have also decided to lighten my load and have pulled stuff that I now consider "nice-to-have-not-need-to-have" to send back home before heading out again.
Today, while running around, I noticed again how many RVs were parked in the Wal-Mart parking lot. People had their camp chairs set up on the grass boulevard right beside the busy road. With all of the beauty and wonder of the Yukon, I can't for the life of me imagine why you would want to camp in the Wal-Mart parking lot!! It's insanity. Whenever I expostulated this, people would say "It's free." HELLOOO!!! They're driving an RV, towing a car with bicycles on the back, probably using 10L of gas per kilometer, and balk at the cost of an RV spot in one of the most beautiful areas of the country?! And shame on Wal-Mart for putting RV parks out of business by allowing it. Another example of how things would be different if they'd let me run the world. If all goes to plan, I should at least be on top of the world on Wednesday!
Am trying a post with a bit of video today. This video is arriving into Teslin, between Watson Lake and Whitehorse. I stopped here for gas and lunch on Thursday last week. Beautiful scenery coming into town.
