Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Hot Weather and LONG Days

Well coming north has not involved warmer clothes. The daytime temp hovers around +25, and last night it went down to +17! We are using our air conditioner as we watch the hockey game.
Today we visited Skagway, Alaska. It is about 2 hours from Whitehorse and worth the drive. We didn't end up taking the ferry to Haines for no real reason, just didn't.
We are really enjoying our holiday with Paul and Mary, and of course Carl and Carolanne. We won't see them until we get to Anchorage, and then we are again meeting in Dawson City. Although the days aren't flying by right now I know they will as the time to go home approaches. Already we know it would be great to get to Ontario to see Carl and Carolanne. Maybe that can be another road trip some year.
We did a bit of window shopping in Skagway today but didn't buy anything. Still trying to decide what to buy Blake and Emerson. Maybe moccasins? If I can find some not made in China! LOL
Yesterday we had a quiet day in Whitehorse. I think we were all glad to spend a day not driving. Paul and Mary are having some minor trailer issues so we may stay in Whitehorse one more night. Tomorrow will tell the story as they have a repair appointment.
I will have to post pictures tomorrow since I forgot to download all the photos before I came to the internet store.
Take care!
Oh by the way sun rises at about 4 am and sets about 11:30 pm. If you need dark to sleep this is not the place for you!
