Aug 4, 2015 - Travel to the "Pouce" - as know by northerners

We arrived about 3 pm, and as always we gotta take our little buddy(Joe) out for a second walk today. Sunshine is so nice here. Our site was on the creek at the Pouce Coupe' Municipal Campground This was a rustic style site on gravel with power for $25/night, large grassy area for games etc, operation is laid back approach, makes you feel Welcome.

May 10, 2015 - Pouce Coupe and Dawson Creek BC

Because we came in on a Friday night, and the touristy things we need to do in Dawson City are not open until Monday, and the fact that I now have a miserable cold, we decided to hold up here for a few days and do some local stuff. Looking through all our visitor information we decided to head into the town of Pouce Coupe. We found a historical society that was having a grand opening. They even were serving cake and had a yard sale. We looked but sure don’t need more stuff to cram into the camper. Inside the museum, I talked to some...

Jul 16, 2010 - Happy Birthday Shelby

Happy Birthday Shelby. We know you are out of town working, but our thoughts, love and best wishes for a Happy Birthday are with you. We had coffee and left early. Stopped later and ate breakfast. We saw several animals on the road today. Sorry Meagan, couldn't get photos of all of them. We traveled thru lunch, wanted to get into town and set up before dark. We reach our destination of Dawson Creek and guess what....No Room At The Inn...There are two caravans of Motor Homes coming into town. We tried at three parks, same story. I remembered...

Jun 22, 2010 - Fort Nelson To Pouce Coupe

After breakfast this morning, Dad and I went back up the road to a museum that he and Mom had visited with an RV tour group 10 years ago. The main building (smallish, old log cabin) was crammed with everything from old tools to mounted wildlife heads to Alaska highway memorabilia....and SO much more! We wandered through and saw what we could, but it would take days to see it all. After that, Marl Brown (the owner, I believe), came over to chat and took us over to the auto shed. He told us about every car in there, including one he'd just...

May 17, 2007 - Prince George to Dawson Creek.

When we got back from the library yesterday, we needed to clean our windshield again. My goodness, I'm sorry for the "buggy" pictures, but there are all kinds of bugs up here. We start each day with a clean windshield and within 30 minutes on the road we have collected at least 20 squished bugs ☺. We then sat out at our picnic table with all the booklets we had been given at the Prince George Visitor Center. We're always trying to figure out what we're going to do the following day..... this time we have decided that we would aim for Dawson...

Living our RV Dream!

Jul 18, 2006 - Dawson Creek

Last night, I picked Pink Mountain RV Park. When we got to our camping spot, Chet said to the young boy, "You have got to be kidding." Poor kid, he had no idea what to think of that comment. We were on a road with a camper in front and one close beside us. The other two campers had just arrived, too, and one made the comment to Chet, "Welcome to sites 17, 18, and 19. They were not happy either. Then I made the comment that we should have picked another campground. One of the women said, "Then you would not have met us." I grinned, "You are...

Alaska Bound

Jul 16, 2006 - Mile 0 at Dawson Creek, BC

Sunday - From Grande Prairie to Dawson Creek - a pretty short hop. Had a nice drive up HWY 43 to the Mile Zero Campground in Dawson Creek. This is the jumping off point - the start of the Alaska Highway. Along the way, we saw Caribou farms, Llama farms, and other assorted sights. Some native Albertans told us to be sure and watch out for Caribou as we got further north - said they were worse than the Moose for standing in the road and not moving. Having killed 2 deer in one year with our fifth wheel in the past, we don't want to try for...

Aug 1, 2005 - Day 4

Shorty got me up at 6:40 a.m. so we could get started. Wind was blowing like a banshee. Luckily seems like it's gonna mostly be a tailwind. Boy, those headwinds are hard on the gas mileage. It's COLD this time of morning. Unbelievably, at least to us from the drought belt, the river is flowing on both sides of the road. It has formed a "lake" (wide, slow moving spot in the river) at least a half mile wide on each side of the road. We just saw 2 big bull elk eating on the side of the road. Didn't get pictures because Shorty was going too...
