Beginning of the Alaska hwy

Mile "0" Marker in the middle of Dawson Creek

Bill and Sign

August 11th

We pushed through to Fort St. John to try and get the window repaired. It was a longer drive than we normally do and left little time for sight seeing but the weather was spectacular and the road was good. No luck getting a repair in Fort St. John so after calls to ICBC and some negotiation we made a deal to have the Pleasure way dealer in Kelowna do the repairs. Our plan now includes getting to Kelowna by the 23rd of August. We spent the night just outside of Fort St. John at Charlie Lake and on to Dawson Creek to take a picture of the Mile “0” marker at the beginning of the Alaska hwy. Except for one small piece of the hwy in Alaska we drove the entire length and so to record the moment we took pictures. The night time brought us clear skies and a meteor shower which we enjoyed from our large skylight over the sleep area in the van. Wildlife spotting has not stopped either as we enjoyed seeing 2 Boreal owls on our evening walk at the campsite at Moberly Lake north of Chetwynd.
