    Does tight mean limited space, or limited availability?

    Whitehorse is a busy town in the summer, lots of tourist, rooms get tight. Use Expedia to locate vacancy's

    I'm at the Gold Rush campgrounds in town. It's full so if you need a spot, come by, right now it's just me. But we can have up to 3 tents in one spot.

    84B4AAD8-7635-4713-BBCF-71C59F4462CF.jpeg Yesterday it rained on us from about milepost 100 all the way to Liard HS with virtually no let up. Rained all night at Liard. Rain pounded us hard today from Liard to Watson Lake. Let up just north of Watson Lake. Temperatures in the low forties in the mountains. It was a tough slog.

    I should add, the construction zones north of WL could be difficult with rain. The sun had been out long enough to dry out all but the one north of Teslin. It was still muddy northbound in the first portion.

An AK Power & Phone worker asked me at a gas stop what all the motorcycles were about. He said the Taylor Highway had been closed the last two days due to mud but was open today. Can’t confirm.
