RE: Dempster Hwy Planning Questions

Yukon's Top of the World Highway is also very colorful in September. However, the Alaska side (Taylor Hwy) can be very busy with hunters in September so don't plan any hiking. As well, the campgrounds and pull-offs are usually very full with camping hunters. Here's the Top of the World in September width=700

RE: Dempster Hwy Planning Questions

We really enjoy the Dempster Hwy Drive, especially camping and hiking around Tombstone park campground. See my pictures of that route at Fall colors can be very nice - this is near Tombstone in September 1993 width=700

EDIT: the missing fellow has been located by the RCMP

Have you seen a 65 year old fellow travelling in Yukon or Northern BC in a 993 Coachman Catalina RV? He was last seen on July 24. If you have seen that RV, can you please let the Yukon RCMP know where and when that was? You can see photos of the RV and the man on the RCMP's facebook page ON EDIT: THE RCMP HAVE ANNOUNCED THAT THEY LOCATED THE MISSING FELLOW.

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

July 24 article from CBC regarding the status of the suspects in Manitoba now Lucas Fowler, 23, an Australian, and Chynna Deese, 24, an American, were discovered gunned down along the side of the Alaska Highway south of Liard Hot Springs, B.C., on July 15. Four days later, McLeod and Schmegelsky's burnt-out truck was discovered near the community of Dease Lake, more than 470 kilometres away from the first crime scene. The body of an unidentified man in his 50s or 60s was found two kilometres south of that truck. Police said Schmegelsky and McLeod were later spotted on surveillance video at a grocery store in northern Saskatchewan and believed to be travelling in a grey 2011 Toyota RAV4. This article includes quotes from one of the suspects parents. And the 2011 Toyota RAV4 has now been found burned out in Manitoba - here's the CBC photo of it.!/fileImage/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/16x9_780/burnt-out-car-in-northern-manitoba.jpg width=600

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

and now another issue...another two people are missing along the Cassiar Hwy. Their truck was a red/grey RAM with a Bigfoot camper. See the picture on this CBC article Police admit there are "growing community concerns" after a total of five people have been declared missing or murdered in Northern B.C. in the past week — although officers say they don't know if the cases are related. RCMP are asking the public to take general safety precautions like sharing travel plans with friends and family and establishing check-in times, as well as to remain vigilant.

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

Just another heads up. A third body has been found Excerpt from the article: A third body has been found on the same Canadian highway where Australian tourist Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend were killed. The couple were shot at close range on the Alaska Highway in British Columbia, their bodies found on Monday.

RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

RCMP are looking for witnesses and dashcam footage as part of their investigation into a pair of suspicious deaths near Liard Hot Springs this week. Two people were found dead on the Alaska Highway 20 kilometres south of the popular tourist destination on Monday, July 15. An older blue minivan with Alberta plates was found at the scene, according to police, who are looking to speak with anyone who may have seen the vehicle or tried to help. Police are looking to speak with anyone who travelled the stretch of highway between Sunday, July 14 at 4 p.m. and Monday morning at 8 a.m. Police say they'd especially like to speak with anybody who has dashcam video of their travels through the area. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern Rockies RCMP at 250-774-2700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. If you can help, please do! See the article at

RE: Please read the signs....

and on occasion on the Alaska Highway in Yukon, RVers travel down the centre line, or swerve to or over the centre line when there is a frost heave marked by flags. But PLEASE, check to ensure a vehicle isn't passing you if you do the lane change. Many times I have had to swerve onto the shoulder to not be hit by an RV when I'm passing it.

RE: Overnight at Wally's

Like many we use Walmart for an overnight from time to time. We always check with a duty manager & always walk out with way more goods than a CG would have cost us. Been to the Whitehorse Walmart on each of our 4 trips north. Never overnighted there. What a circus that carpark is. No room for shoppers to park. Don't blame Walmart at all for banning overnighters. They did it to themselves. There is the epic story of the seasonal camper there who got himself some rocks from the nearby Yukon river & built himself a fire ring in the carpark. The Whitehorse Walmart no longer allows overnight parking.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

FYI, the Walmart parking lot in Whitehorse is now off-limits to overnight campers. You can read the CBC article for more info: Whitehorse Walmart enforcing ban on parking lot campers

RE: Driving the Dempster Hwy

It's nice being north of the Arctic Circle on June 21, the longest day of the year. The sun stays above the horizon for the whole night. You can check road conditions in Yukon at and conditions in NWT at

RE: Drones in Canada

The rules are enforced by Transport Canada and the RCMP. Drone pilots must carry a valid drone pilot certificate and only fly drones that are marked and registered. For drones that weigh more than 250 grams (half pound) and up to 35 kilograms (77 pounds), some of the regulations include that they must be flown to a maximum of 90 metres (98 yards) above the ground, only during the day, not in clouds, within 500 metres (547 yards) of the operator and at least 5.5 kilometres (3 and a half miles) from aerodromes (any airport, seaplane base or areas where aircraft take off and land. Safety and privacy are a couple of the key factors.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

The fire ban has been lifted due to the amount of rain we're having now. Here's the updated CBC article: According to the article, "there have been 29 wildfires in Yukon, burning about 16,116 hectares (39823 acres). Eight of those fires are still considered active." Parks Canada continues to ban open fires in Kluane National Park, which includes burning in fire pits.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

A fire ban has been issued for southern Yukon due to extreme fire conditions. All open fires, including campfires and fireworks, are banned in the areas of Whitehorse, Teslin, Haines Junction, Ross River and Watson Lake. So if you're boondocking along the highways, don't start a fire. Yukon emergency updates online at There's a wildfire near Haines Junction that has been burning for a week now.

RE: Dawson City > Chicken > Tok AK

The elk herd of about 180 tend to live on and around our place too and are sometimes on the Alaska Highway so be alert ;) See more elk photos at width=600 width=600

RE: Dawson City > Chicken > Tok AK

Sue has provided many great pics to this forum over the years. One spring she even arranged for a majestic elk to be standing beside the highway when we passed her place heading North! ;) We are indeed fortunate to be able to learn from her wisdom and experience. Maybe she will share her lynx video with us again in the future. Thanks Sue, for all you do for us "tourists"! These two lynx ? See more of their activity including the video from March 2016 north of Haines Junction at

RE: Dawson City > Chicken > Tok AK

We've towed our fifth wheel across the Taylor Hwy and Top of the World Hwy many times. Many of my pictures are posted for other RVers to view on my website at and It can be a beautiful drive if the weather is good and especially in the Fall - just drive to suit the road conditions which vary a lot

RE: Vancouver to Whitehorse via Vancouver Island?

The north end of the Cassiar is still narrow but is okay to drive. Just stay alert of oncoming traffic because RVers and semitrucks often drive down the middle. We also drive slower than the speed limit to have more time to deal with others in the middle of the highway. This photo is from 2017. The rest of the trip is at height=600
