We purchased a NuWave induction cooktop and cookset when we decided to stop using our electric cooktop. But are they worth buying?
Now more than ever, our environment needs more defenders. We thought that living in an all solar rig and driving on waste vegetable oil was doing our part. But our vegan road friends, Backroad Bennetts, had us watch Cowspiracy. This documentary made us realize what we eat, specifically meat, has a much bigger impact on the environment than any other aspect of our lives.
Photos of Tombstone Territorial Park caught my eye. Its jagged peaks that reached straight into the sky and unbelievably colorful rolling tundra. Just Google “Tombstone Territorial Park” and you’ll want to book the next flight to Yukon. On top of that, the park area is referred to as “Patagonia of the North”. For me, Tombstone was going to be the climax of my time in Yukon.
So we did it – after months of being indecisive about what we’re doing for the winter I’m writing this post from the Toaster parked at Crystal Mountain Resort, Washington. We’re going to be ski bums for the winter season! Jerud and I will both be working at the resort while staying on the property and snowboarding as many days as possible!
Right before the summer we learned about the app Ultimate Campgrounds and were really excited about it. Ultimate Campground has an app for the U.S. and for Canada, and from their description it looked like they have an extensive collection of campgrounds.
The drive from Whitehorse to Tombstone Territorial Park is far, like 400 miles far. That’s too much mileage for us to make it in one go, especially knowing the Dempster Highway (which brings you to the park) is especially slow going in an RV. So we stopped at Five Finger Rapids and Midnight Dome on our way to Tombstone.
Living on the road and constantly traveling to unfamiliar places towing an 8,000 lb RV can be stressful. There are a lot of unknowns and we can end up spending a lot of time and data trying to figure all kinds of things. We know it’s probably like that for all travelers – whether you’re full-timers or not. So we’ve compiled a list of apps that have made our nomadic lives easier (especially one with a limited cell data plan).
Insurance can help recover after losing physical things, but in modern times data are often more precious than possessions. This is doubly true for “digital nomads” who often eschew owning expensive things and embrace going paperless for both personal and work records. If we lost access to our files, it would shut our lives down until we could get them back together. Everything is in our laptops. Insurance can’t protect against data loss. That’s why we need backups.
We had this kickass plan for hiking Sheep Creek trail in Kluane National Park. During our first trip to the Tachal Dhal Visitor Center, the ranger mentioned that we could make a loop out of the trail instead of hiking it as an out and back. We were excited to finally hike a loop trail in Yukon.
