June 20th; Dawson City: Yes, we did the Sourtoe Cocktail at @downtownhoteldawson . For those of you who don’t know what it is, legend has it, that in the 1920’s a guy’s toe fell off due to frostbite and was preserved in alcohol. Then, in then in 1973, Captain Dick Stevenson found the jar and decided to make a club where in order to gain membership, you had to drink the toe cocktail. “You can drink it fast, you can drink it slow, but your lips much touch the toe”. I am member number 87019 😐 (See our story for video 🤢) After we did that, we went to the famous @diamondtoothgerties to catch 2 out of 3 of their nightly Cancan shows and do a cheeky bit of gambling. Once the midnight show was done, a local showed us to The Pit at @westminster1898 for a few more drinks, before stumbling back to the parking lot behind the visitors centre at 3am in the broad daylight 😂 Jill and I tried our luck at the hot dog stand, but they sold out, so we drunkenly made ramen before finally making it to bed in Moe (see last photo for our guest bed set up). We all agreed that this was definitely one of our favourite nights (hence the lack of photos - too busy having fun 😉). . . . . . . . . #dawsoncity #dawsoncityyukon #downtownhoteldawson #sourtoecocktail #diamondtoothgerties #cancanshow #blackjack #midnightsun #partytilthesundontset #goldrushtown #klondikegoldrush #homeiswhereyouparkit #busconversion #skooliesofinstagram #skoolie #skoolielife #buslifediaries #buslifeadventure #buslife #buslifers #exploreyukon #yukonterritory #explorecanada #roadtrippers #tinyhomebigliving #tinyhousebigliving #tinyhomeonwheels #nomadlife #carparkcamping #freecamping
June 19th; Chicken: it took us a bit longer than expected to get to Chicken because of roadworks and hilly, dirt roads, but an hour after @idea.of.tom and @jillrm arrived, we made it!  The drive wasn’t all bad though, because we spotted two moose (one just chilling in the middle of a small pond)! After we set up camp in the car park, we spent the afternoon drinking and eating at the saloon (including doing some “Chicken Brain” shots). I wanted to visit this old, gold mining town for a few reasons, most of which are summed up in the last photo “Chicken Facts”. The fact sheet is a bit outdated because Tucker died 11 years ago (RIP), but it remains pretty much the same, with a year round population of only 7 people (more in summer). All these photos are the entirety of downtown Chicken believe it or not! . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #chicken #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #homeiswhereyoudriveit #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #alaskancamping #chickenalaska #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #saloons #vanconversion #roadtrippers #explorealaska #carparkcamping #buslifeadventure #shotsshotsshots #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @roadtrippers @idea.of.tom @jillrm
June 17th/18th; 28 Mile Pond (Fairbanks): After some brunch at Black Bear Cafe in Denali, we headed to Fairbanks. Moe has been having a little trouble with the gears grinding in first and second and a little bit of oil was leaking from the transmission, so we decided to take him to the mechanic. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like a quick or easy fix. Fortunately, it’s not a big or urgent problem and something we can get seen to when we get back to Sun Peaks. At least we know that he should be okay for the near future 🤞After that, we went and checked out Pioneer Park, which was this odd little theme park/museum/markets/I’m not sure. Haha. After which, we met up with @awesomervadventure (who I’d been chatting to on IG and who spotted us at Pioneer Park) for some craft beer at @lavellestaphouse . Cheers to new friends 🍻 After that, just settled in to our campsite and decided that if it was nice weather the next day (which it was), we’d have a relax day and stay another night. So that’s exactly what we did 😊 . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #fairbanks #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #homeiswhereyoudriveit #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #alaskancamping #fairbanksalaska #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #girlswithtattoos #vanconversion #roadtrippers #explorealaska #sunsets  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @roadtrippers @idea.of.tom @jillrm @cubicminiwoodstoves @zooyorkofficial @wallsneedlove
June 16th; Denali National Park & Preserve: this was definitely our earliest start to a day this trip. We were at the bus depot at 7:10am for our 7:30am bus to take us into the park. The bus ride was an 8 hour round trip to the Eielson Information Centre with the option to jump off wherever you choose, to go explore and hike (no trails). Then, once you are done, you just wait on the road for another bus. On the way in, we saw one of the peaks of Denali poking through the clouds, spotted a couple of moose, some caribou (one in the middle of the road), a fox, some grizzly bears playing, tonnes of daal sheep, and a marmot (at the visitors centre). We picked a spot from the bus to hike (called Ice-cream Gulch), and decided to jump off about an hour after the visitors centre on the way back. It looked to be a pretty easy hike with a couple of nice viewpoints. We were kinda right 🙃 The hike was mainly through knee high scrub on top of wet, sinking marshlands 😂 Although, we did get some good views, which helped us spot A GRIZZLY BEAR 😱 Luckily, we were up high enough to spot it and see which direction it ran after yelling at it 😪 That was definitely the heart stopping highlight of the day 😂 We picked out a path back to the road (hoping not to run into the bear), and watched a storm roll in (the bus arriving just in time). We finally arrived back at our camp a good 12 hours after we set off, and when I took my shoe off, my toenail fell off. Lovely. . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #denali #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #denalinationalparkandpreserve #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #alaskancamping #hikingadventures #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #storm #closecall #roadtrippers #explorealaska #nationalparks  #buslifeadventure #alaskanwildlife #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict
June 15th; Wild Turn off (Denali National Park and Preserve): We were pretty keen to do a hike in the National Park, so we headed to the Denali Visitors Information Centre. There are a few little, mainly flat, walks around the entrance to the park. Otherwise, you have to get a paid bus in and you can hike anywhere! I wasn’t feeling very well and we only had the afternoon left, so while I watched tv in the Moe in the car park, the others went on one of the little walks. We decided to make a day of it the next day and get the bus in and do a bigger hike. We found this great little campsite only about 15 minutes away from the bus depot so we wouldn’t have to get up too early for our 7:30am bus into the park. The campsite was one of the more difficult ones to get to, and we certainly weren’t flat, but we were all alone, with this view! . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #denali #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #homeiswhereyoudeiveit #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #explorealaska #nationalparks  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @roadtrippers @idea.of.tom @jillrm
June 14th; Lake by Park Highway (Denali): We spent the day in Talkeetna because it was just the cutest town! We had a wander up and down the street and got some beer and appies at @denalibrewpub while we waited for Tom & Jill’s washing. Then, at the recommendation of @_dumbo_wumbo_  we ended up at @mountainhighpizzapie 🤤 After that, we were all a bit full and sleepy (and Jill and I were a bit day drunk 🥴) so the boys drove us just a couple of hours to this little site on the outskirts of Denali National Park and Preserve. It was super windy and we were exhausted, so Tom and Jill went to bed and Mick and I watched Into the Wild (it seemed fitting... being in a bus, in Denali 💙) and I saw my first otter! . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #denali #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #homeiswhereyoudeiveit #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #explorealaska #loungeroomviews  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @roadtrippers @idea.of.tom @jillrm
June 13th; Susitna River Banks: We decided to stay here because we wanted to check out Talkeetna the next day, and a friendly full time RV couple we met on my birthday recommended it. It sure was a good recommendation! There was tonnes of space, level ground, fire rings and we were right on the Susitna River. After @jillrm and I had our daily Caesar 🍹, we cooked dinner and played card games outside near the fire and river 🤗On the beach on the way in, we saw what we thought to be a moose skeleton and there were  a bunch of kids on a 6-wheeler with their parents on quads until about midnight - on a school night! We were all being old grumps about it, but really, we were all just jealous 😉 . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #susitnariver #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #homeiswhereyoudeiveit #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #explorealaska #caesar #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @roadtrippers @idea.of.tom
June 12th; Whisky Gulch (Anchor Point): We spent the afternoon wandering around the Homer Spit in Homer, drinking at the Salty Dawg Saloon and eating Halibut at Harbor Grill before driving to this beachside camp in Anchor Point. Even with all the clouds, there was a spectacular sunset close to midnight. So, pretty much all these photos are of that 🌅 We could see the silhouette of mountains all along the horizon and even Mt Iliama volcano on the left and Mr Redoubt volcano on the right (just near where the sun set). We walked along the beach, cooked pork katsu outside for dinner, had our first campfire this trip, and watched the eagles flying around. It was a pretty night! . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #homer #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #skooliecommunity #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #explorealaska #sunset #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @roadtrippers @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 11th - Wild Camp in Portage Valley (day 2). We decided to stay an extra night at this campground (although, we moved spots) because it was a beautiful day, a beautiful spot, and we hadn’t stayed 2 nights anywhere yet! Mick made shukshuka for brunch and we spent the day lounging, reading, napping and playing games inside once the rain came. It was a pretty perfect day 👌 . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #alaskaviews #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #explorealaska #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreusa #globetrotter  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 10th; My Birthday 🥳After starting the day with a birthday coffee (with Kahlua and Baileys 😋) we had a stunning drive into Anchorage. Unfortunately, my endometriosis flared up so I was in pain for most of the day, and Anchorage not as nice as we were expecting ☹️That said, I did ride a tram and get treated to cocktails, pretzel fondue, fresh seafood chowder and creme brûlée for lunch at @gbrewhouseak 🤤 Although, the best part of my day was relaxing at our new campsite (Wild Camp at Portage Valley) with good company, eating cheese, olives and salami, drinking espresso martini’s made by @mockmocktaytay 👌 . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #alaskaviews #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #explorealaska #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreusa #globetrotter  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 9th; Buffalo Lake: this was not the nicest site, nor the one furthest from the road, and there was someone else staying there too, but how could you complain with these views? . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #alaskaviews #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #explorealaska #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreusa #globetrotter  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 9th; Mukluk Land (2/2): After wandering around outside checking out the old rusted engines, machinery, snow mobiles, bathtubs filled with plants, and a house filled with thousands of dolls, we had a jump on the jumping castle 🏰🤪 The lady who owns Mukluk Land is just the kindest, sweetest little thing, who insisted we come back in to play skeeball once we were done outside (no insistence necessary 😉) and gave us all 4 tokens to play together and another 2 to play on the only machine that allowed a 💯 score with one ball (I got it in twice 😏). After that, she let us pick 25c of candy each and convinced us (again, no convincing necessary) to play a round of bush golf. We ended up spending a lot longer there than we thought, but I loved it! Definitely a place to visit if you find yourself in Tok! . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #muklukland #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #alaskaentertainment #tok #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #themepark #bigkids #roadtrippers #explorealaska #exploreusa  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #junkyard #roadtrip @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 9th; Mukluk Land (1/2): This was the other place in Tok that I really wanted to visit, so after our breakfast at Sourdough Campground, we headed to “Alaska’s Most Unique Destination”. Once we had a picture with the giant mukluk, we wandered through the open air museum/junkyard, littered with all things Alaskan (and some not) with signage identifying the items or full of facts. Santa’s Rocket Ship was definitely unlike anything I’d seen before! There was so many cool things, I had to make a second post to share all the photos (and even then, it’s not enough)! . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #muklukland #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #alaskaentertainment #tok #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #themepark #bigkids #roadtrippers #explorealaska #exploreusa  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #junkyard #roadtrip @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 8th: We made it to Alaska! Pretty much as soon as we crossed to border, it started hailing and then  rained for a decent part of the night 🙄 I’d read a few cool things about Tok (pronounced toke) and one of them was the Pancake Toss at Sourdough Campground, so we decided to splurge and stay at our first paid campground this trip! The owners were lovely and the campground was really cute, with well maintained and clean facilities (lots of hot water). The Pancake Toss was even better! It happens every night in summer at 7:30pm, and if you win, you get a free breakfast! Tom won after his pancake landed on the side and someone else knocked his in, and I - surprisingly- did not win 😂 Nevertheless, we all still ate in their very cute diner in the morning. I had their famous Sourdough Pancakes and reindeer sausage 🤤 . . . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #alaska #buslife #mybusmyadventure #sourdoughcampground #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #sourdoughpancakes #paidcampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #reindeersausage #loser #roadtrippers #explorealaska #exploreusa  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #hikeviews #roadtrip @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 7th; Sheep Creek Hike/Kluane Lake 3 (Kluane National Park): After a late breaky/coffee in Haines Junction at the Village Bakery, we went to the Kluane National Park Visitors Centre to find out about hikes in the area. We ended up settling on Sheep Creek Trail (10km return trip, 427m elevation gain) which overlooks the biggest non-polar ice fields. We tried to beat the big, dark, looming clouds in the distance, but as we were nearing the top, we started to get hailed and rained on 🙃 I realised how unfit I am doing this hike, so at least the rain was cooling 🤷‍♀️ After we got back down (about 3 hours later), we headed straight to Kluane Lake to set up camp and have some showers 🤩 By then, the rain had passed, so we cooked a couple of the pies we bought at Atlin Lake and ate outside on the beach. There were millions of mosquitos about, but they weren’t landing or biting, just swarming around and getting blown away by the breeze, so it wasn’t too bad at all (just meant we had to move our game of @fluxx.game_  indoors). . . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #yukonterritory #buslife #mybusmyadventure #yukonhikes #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreyukon #explorecanada  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #hikeviews #roadtrip @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 6th; Quill Lake (Haines Junction): We didn’t arrive here until about 9pm, so we just had some leftover curried sausages for dinner and walked out into the creek for this view of the sunset around 10:45pm. It was a nice, relaxing night and the view was just as good with a coffee in the morning (until the mosquito’s came). . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #campervan  #yukonterritory #buslife #mybusmyadventure #yukonsunset #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreyukon #explorecanada  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 6th; Yukon Wildlife Preserve/Takhini Hot Spings: We stopped here on our way out from Whitehorse because I’d heard good things about both of these places and it’s not like we’re in a rush! The Wildlife Preserve was huge and the animals had tonnes of space. It was really interesting and a nice way to spend the afternoon. Plus, now I know what to look for when trying to spot them in the wild! After walking around for a couple of hours, @takhinihotsprings was a great way to relax 😌 . . . . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #whitehorse  #yukonterritory #buslife #mybusmyadventure #wildlifepreserve #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreyukon #explorecanada  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @jillrm @idea.of.tom
June 5th; Whitehorse (Ear Lake): After making a little detour to Carcross for a look around and a beer, we arrived in Whitehorse. I think we were all a bit excited to be back in a bigger town because once we checked out the SS Klondike, we spent most of the day wandering around town, looking in shops and sussing out the food options. We decided to treat ourselves to some drinks and dinner out at @klondikerib before making our way to our campsite at Ear Lake. After the rain passed, we went for a walk around the lake and up to the top of the hill for this spectacular view. Then, to top it off, we spotted a couple of beavers right before bed 👌 . . . . . . #homeiswhereyouparkit #buslifediaries #whitehorse  #yukonterritory #buslife #mybusmyadventure #skooliecommunity #skoolie #skoolienation #skoolielife #tinyhousebigliving #canadiancamping #tinyhouseonwheels #boondocking #freecampsites #tinyhomeonwheels #mobileliving #tinyliving #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanbuild #vanconversion #roadtrippers #exploreyukon #explorecanada  #buslifeadventure #skoolieconversion #outboundliving #livingoutdoors #roadtrip @skoolieconversion @vanlifeisawesome @tinyhousedistrict @jillrm @idea.of.tom
