To Continue or Head for Home????

Hi all, I hope you are well and life is good. I am doing okay. Not much to say, except this has been a downer of a day. I wish I could speak the truth, but I know this isn’t the place to air. I did everything I wanted to do today. I did dump tanks again, this morning. When I reached Whitehorse, I did stop at the chevy dealer to get oil just incase. I filled up the tank and proceeded to seek out a place to get propane. I did get some in Haines Junction, Yukon. I was all set to boondock/dry. Then 10 minutes out from Haines Junction, it dawned on me, I forgot to fill fresh water. I so absent minded. I still went to the place I wanted to camp, thinking, I’ll stay until what water there is, is gone. I was shocked when I arrived at the place I wanted, I was going to be the only one there. I proceeded to setup camp and then to my right, guess what I happened to notice? Yep, fresh bear scat. That was it for anymore ideas of camping there when I have nothing to defend myself if something happened. I broke camp for the second time today and ran like a coward. I looked in the Mile Post magazine and found a RV Park not far from where I was at. I am settled in there for the night. In the morning I’ll decide if I want to continue with this trip or just go home. As hard as I am trying to enjoy it, I just can’t. I’m so tried(not enough continous sleep at a time) and tired of being alone and lonely and seeing other people to share this with. At this point the money going to be lost, simply doesn’t matter. Sorry to disappoint but that’s what I do, I disappoint. If there is a post tomorrow, I proceeded with the trip. If not, I have gone home and I’ll be dark forever, there after. I hate being this damn sad in the area that fills me up with life and excites me. this trip it isn’t happening. I wish nothing but peace.
