The living room slide made a loud ‘clunk’ this morning. Paul will have to see if it is broken when we make camp. We stopped for a quick lunch at the midway point, Selkirk Centre (Gas & Grocery). Bagel with Cream Cheese and apple slices; You can’t beat cheap, easy, and healthy.

There was a lot of construction on 2 North. The guidebook indicated to look for wildlife on the next part of our trip – hope so because we did not spot a thing all morning. I learned today that the raven is the Yukon’s Official Bird – why not since they are immense and everywhere.

Of course, the living room slide was broken. We called Chief Isaac Mechanical. Sean fixed it in about an hour and a half. He took our slide crank back to the shop because that was broken too! If you ever need anything fixed, Paul and I would highly recommend Chief Isaac Mechanical – fast, friendly, and knowledgeable with honest reasonable rates!

The Gold Rush Campground RV Park is right in Dawson City. We are looking forward to exploring the township tomorrow.

Wildlife Spotted: A couple of ducks swimming in a muddy pond; and a black bear.
