Alaska Trip Day 24: A Nights Stay at Beaver Creek RV Park in Canada… 05/09/17

Well folks, its going to be hard to match yesterday’s #inspirational #travels… This #RestStop we woke up to was a good start…

IMG 4493

It was raining out this morning but the sky soon started to clear…

IMG 4494

We had parked on a peninsula that veered into a large #lake…

IMG 4495

And boy was this location gorgeous!

IMG 4499

You are just engulfed in beauty out here…From every direction…

IMG 4500

The weather didn’t know if it wanted to rain, freeze, snow or shine the mighty sun…

IMG 4501

It’s so unpredictable up here… There are so many things going on with the #ChangingOfTheSeasons….

IMG 4502

When you think about it, these extreme weather locations have to go from the most extreme cold back up to spring and summer weather… So, it creates some really erratic weather and you can really feel those changes in the air, through out the day…

If you were wondering where we are in the #Yukon… There’s a map above…

IMG 4503

This rest area had all kinds of information on the #animals that live in the area…

IMG 4504

It was a nice added touch to the trip, way out in the middle of nowhere…

IMG 4505

The feeling out here is so fresh and new… Everything feels so pristine and perfect…

IMG 4506

There’s this definite chill that is competing with the sun and you feel like you are stuck in the middle of the battle…

IMG 4507

There are times when it feels so warm, you can take your jacket off… Only to put it back on five minutes later when the sun retreats behind a cloud and it wants to get cold again…

IMG 4508

But the views and smells this creates is remarkable… Remember we are seeing these locations in their original form… With hardly any human touch soiling it…

IMG 4511

I want to come back up here and just #explore for a few months…

IMG 4513

That’s something I definitely plan on doing in the future…

IMG 4514

I just feel so at home out here… So at peace with myself and the world…

IMG 4516

I mean, look at me… I’m in a t-shirt with ice and snow all around me… And trust me, I’m not cold at all!

IMG 4509

I remember just looking at #TheMillenniumFalcon and thinking… Look at what I have done in the past two years!

I’m in the middle of the Yukon in a moving house with the woman I love… To think only two years ago I was stuck in L.A. and completely miserable…

Hell, I was suicidal! No lie! I had such a bleak out look on life, I didn’t want to live it anymore…

IMG 4519

Thank god I had the sense to change it! And if anyone out there wants to take their own life… Don’t! Just change your life! It may be painful and extremely hard to do at first but I guarantee you, you will be thanking yourself for choosing the more difficult path…

IMG 4521

Life is too precious folks and it took me two years of #traveling to rediscover it…

IMG 4522

Not that I don’t have my bad days but in general, I’m a much happier person… It’s hard to take a step back and face all of your problems when a society teaches you to just suck it up and go to work… everyone is special folks… Everyone has some meaning in life… And everyone has the right to look at themselves and try to fix what is not what they feel is right in their life… It’s not selfish… It’s not admitting you are weak because you have some problems in life… We all have problems to address…. The only difference is the ones who address those problems and the ones who ignore them…

I tried to get a picture of this swan in #MooseLake above, but she was too far away… That little dot in the middle is a swan… lol…

IMG 4525

So, #TheTravelingMac, #TheFalcon and Tracey were close to the #Canadian/AlaskanBorder by now… We decided to treat ourselves to a #RVPark and enjoy a night of endless showering and the convenience of limitless electricity!

IMG 4526

This was a neat little church that welcomed you into town…

IMG 4528

We filled up with gas, dumped, filled our water tank and parked….

IMG 4536

And this was the perfect place to have a campfire dinner!

IMG 4538

So I pulled out the old camping cooking equipment and went to town… I think this was actually my first time cooking Tracey a dinner on the #campfire… So, it was crucial that I did it perfectly so I can impress…

IMG 4539

And I proved my campfire cooking skills reinforcing my caveman like abilities…

IMG 4542

Look at that meal above… You could serve this in a restaurant and I cooked it on a crude campfire…

IMG 4544

And boy was it delicious! It felt so great pounding my chest and displaying my survival skills…

IMG 4548

It’s instinctual to prove your worth as a man who can feed, clothe and support a family…

IMG 4549

The #BeaverCreekRVPark was really nice… It was so refreshing to just relax and discuss our #travels with nothing to do for the night…

IMG 4550

The Millennium Falcon was still in good condition… She has some minor fixes I have to address when we finally get to #Alaska… But overall, she has performed amazingly for a 21 year old vehicle…

IMG 4551

It felt so empty at the #RVPark… People were just starting to roll in, getting ready for a #spring and #summer full of adventures… I’m sure this place will be swamped in a month… And I wonder if all of these are travelers trying to get to a summer job like ourselves…

IMG 4555

I always let my campfire tools burn off their residual before I clean them… I tuck these tools under The Millennium Falcon considering they are dirty and for campfire use only… If I brought them inside, black soot would get everywhere…

IMG 4559

Lucky I got that dinner cooked when I did because it started to rain again and it rained on and off throughout the night…

Tomorrow we cross the border into Alaska… Then we will be just 100’s of miles from our final destination… We have a job folks yet we don’t have a place to live yet… But that’s another adventure to talk about in the near future…

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
