I was wondering if there is enough yeast for carbonation? I primaried for 3 weeks and dry hopped for 5 weeks in secondary. The reason for so long is that I am an otr truck driver and only come home around every 3 weeks.The one good thing is it should be ready to drink when i get back home. I put it in the cellar, temp stays arond 75 in summer months. thanks.

An extra 3 weeks won't negatively affect the finished product--quite the opposite actually.

But yes, as long as you went through the normal method for carbonating bottles (priming solution), there's enough yeasties.
Primary: nada
Secondary: emptyness
Bottled/Fridge: Sierra Nevada Celebration
Bombers/Growlers/Aging: The Abyss, Firestone 19th Anniversary Ale
Kegerator: sanitizer!
Coming Up: something spiffy, most likely

Shouldn't be a problem. Just remember to keep those bottles in a dark, cool place.
