On the Road Again

July 26, 2012

Déjà vu.  I’m sitting once again at Starbucks, as once again we spent last night in the parking lot at Walmart’s.  On the piped in music, The Beach Boys are singing “Good Vibrations”, an omen of good things to come?

Arriving at the auto repair shop at 9:30 AM, we are met by Travis and the news that he picked up the parts from the airport; yippee!

But, after 3 hours of waiting (and $425) we are told that the problem still exists; no reverse.  We do however, have a clean filter and clean transmission fluid and the opinion from the mechanic that the RV is capable of making it back to California.  Dick may check in Fairbanks regarding a new transmission.

Continuing on to Skagway, there is a nice detour off the road in Carcross.  At Bennett Lake  we stop and make sandwiches and have lunch.  Bennett Lake is where the prospectors came after crossing Chilkoot Pass on their way to the Klondike goldfields.  Carcross  is a quaint town  filled with rich history.

This highway is beautiful with its abundance of cascades spilling over the rocky cliffs, waterfalls and the most amazing Emerald Lake, renowned for its bright colors.

There is a nice campground (Pullen) close to the dock so we will be able to walk over and meet Susan tomorrow morning when the “Sea Princess” arrives.

    Let me get this right…. You need to park the camper so you can always move forward because you have no reverse gear? If that’s the case, it sounds a little challenging. You’ve had to push it backward once or twice right?
