Nippy Morning

I find it a tad amusing that the weather is colder and damper the further south I get from Dawson! Yesterday in Whitehorse was chilly, but a quick run over to Starbucks got the blood flowing. This morning, though, it’s COLD. I even went to bed with long johns on under my jammies! Had I boondocked, I would have run the generator the length of time it runs (more on that later 😀 ) and started up the heat, but I don’t feel it would be appropriate to run the genset in a park. Anyhoo, the coffee and toast are almost ready and they’ll warm me right up. 🙂

There was another improvement to the rig yesterday. The first night I hit the road, I am always reminded that I don’t have a non-120V dependent clock and I wind up having to find the cell phone, iPod, or even computer to get the time in the morning. At Walmart yesterday I picked up for 10$ a very basic and tiny clock with a back light with a sticker on the back. I stuck it up above the bed and it is making a world of difference. I can wake up during the night and not be bothered by the glow of an alarm clock, but still have the time available at the push of a button.

The internet here in Teslin is so wonderful. I think my only real disappointment the past few months was that I couldn’t blog with any sort of frequency or reliability. I made a list of all the things I wanted to share, but it’s a bit late for that now. At any rate, I have tons of material for next summer!

I have about an hour to checkout and I think I’ll just sit and watch the lake while I sip my coffee as this is probably going to be my last easy morning for a few weeks.
