    Two more sleeps!

  • Oct 5 – Whitehorse to Dawson City

    With out gift certificate in hand for our night at a brothel (okay- Dar will change this to former brothel), we head out for Dawson City. It’s 535km from Whitehorse. So, 5 hours drive – right? If you come from southern Ontario and think of the 401. But we are not in Kansas anymore. We […]

  • Oct 4 – Shopping Day

    No wildlife today.  Museums are closed. That means only one thing.  Darlene gets to go shopping.  We spend more of our time at the North End Gallery. www.northendgallery.ca   We have some new are for the living room!  We are not spoiling the surprise by posting the pictures online.  You have to visit us in […]

    Oct 3 – Haines to Whitehorse

  • Day 5 (Oct 2) – Skagway & Haines

    Rainbow and Eagles and Bears Oh My… A very early start today, we need to be on the road by 7am to reach Skagway by 9:15am Alaska Time.   Luckily a time zone changes affords us some extra sleep.   We start in darkness heading south (after a Tim Horton’s stop) retracing the route to Carcross.  Rather […]

  • Day 4- (Oct 1) Carcross / Tagish

    An early morning start to head to a great pancake breakfast.  The Whitehorse United Way Pancake Breakfast.  Joanne is a celebrity server and is supposed to be flipping pancakes, having been promoted from serving yogurt the year before.  It is a packed event at the Whitehorse Convention Center.  We arrive to find Joanne serving potatoes.  […]

  • Day 3 (Sept 30) – Whitehorse and environs

    Apparently we are good house guests.  When Joanne got in the shower to get ready for work, I got up and made coffee.  Joanne has told her co-workers that coffee was made for her – now we have even more places to stay in Whitehorse! As I look back on today and on vacations past […]

  • Day 2: Whitehorse, Yukon

    The minute you walk outside you can feel that the pace and lifestyle is more relaxed.  We started the day with a brief hunt for an iPhone charging cable which Bruce forgot.  The first store we tried didn’t have one but got directed to The Source beside the Wal-Mart, close to the Canadian Tire.  As […]

  • Day 1: Heading North of 60

    We are off to an exciting start: a pat down at airport security (not as invasive as you might think) and an unconfirmed sighting of Jean Chretien in the Ottawa airport!   So far so good but should be a long day with 3 flights to go! It was a long day – but awesome to […]
