Aug 9, 2014 - Prince George, BC

Another travel day from Telkwa to Prince George, BC. The landscape has changed from mountains to rolling hills, most of them covered with hay slugs, the big rolls of hay. I don’t know what or who uses all that hay, but it must be something. We saw a deer who jumped right in front of us. Larry had to apply the brakes pretty hard, and we avoided him. Another came out of the woods behind us and Larry saw it in his rear view mirror. That’s it for the wildlife from us. I don’t know how people keep seeing moose and bear and all these things.

Alaska Trip

Jul 21, 2014 - Prince George, BC

Mon, July 21: Leaving Jasper this morning for Prince George to meet up with Patty & Steve, Susie's sister & brother-in-law from Oregon. They'll be joining us for the trip. We have sunny skies & cooler weather. If I had to guess, it's about 45 this morning. It's 235 miles to Prince George & the guys have been splitting up the driving, which has been nice for them both. It's a pretty drive and there are wild flowers EVERYWHERE!! With the variety of wildflowers against the cedars & Birch, and the mountains in the background...it just doesn't...

May 30, 2014 - Provincial Park Camping

Hello from up north. Sorry I haven't blogged but we have been roughing it in Canadian provincial parks with Mike Stinnett. We left Kelowna Thursday morning. It was overcast but nothing to the storms we encountered later in the day. Remember Tom's 65 birthday party? The hail was just as bad. In fact I almost broke into a verse of "happy birthday" but was too scared. The picture attached doesn't do the time justice. However, just know that all the white places are actually hail and I took the picture out the window. We were supposed to camp...

Apr 24, 2014 - Into Canada

4-24-14 Was awake several times in the night because of the rain. I normally like the sound of rain on the RV….unless I am anticipating working in it soon. I finally was up a 6AM when the rain slacked off a bit. Did some final housekeeping, dumped all the water, turned off all the appliances, so I’m ready to put it to the Winnebago to bed for the summer. The gatekeeper for the storage area isn’t available till 9AM so I went to a local Starbucks and watched it rain…..hard. I went back to the KOA for the 9AM storage date. It was still raining...

Sep 27, 2013 - Lay day

Just a day at home sort of day. It is cold and wet. We went to shops to help sort our phone and that's all done. This phone will be the death of me. Anyway all done now and works well with data and calls to be made. Makes us feel civilised again. And I can use it for wi fi so won't be so dependant on parks that have it. Mike got parts for our awning and had the truck checked over as he thought it was making a strange noise in the suspension. They told him it was most likely the tyres and to rotate them. He has spent a few hours doing this...

Sep 16, 2013 - On to Prince George

Mon Sep 16 We had a thunderstorm last night, our first in quite some time. There was little traffic noise here but we did have train traffic. Still a good place to spend a night and the price was right! As we moved down the Yellowhead today the scenery was pleasant but quite unremarkable compared to our past few months. There are quite a number of lakes along the route and some large ones too. It looks like a vacation area and would probably be a nice place to spend time in the summer. The number of logging, farming and ranching operations...

Sep 4, 2013 - Prince George, BC

On this day we drove 232 miles from Smithers, British Columbia to Prince George, British Columbia. That evening we had our farewell dinner at 6 o'clock p.m. We had steaks and baked potatoes and also a choice of chicken with rice. Each plate was served with vegetables on it and that was wonderful since we didn’t have as many vegetables while we were in Alaska and Canada since they were so expensive. We were also served tossed salad and a choice of pudding or jello for dessert. I wasn't able to eat all my steak, so I brought it home and...

North To Alaska 2013

Aug 15, 2013 - Hyder, Prince Rupert

Friday, August 9th, 2013 We hung around the RV Park in Tok until about noon then picked up our mail at the post office. Heading East on the Alcan Highway we saw quite a few trumpeter swans in the lakes along the road. We stopped at the Yarger Lake viewing swan area then the last stop in Alaska at the Tetlin National Wildlife Center. There are still a lot of Ice Cap Mountains and glaciers along the route. The first 100 miles into the Yukon the road was pretty rough, a lot of dips and heaves. We stopped in Beaver Creek at Buckshot Betty’s for...

Tuesday, August 6, 2013 we drove from Mountain Shadow RV Park, where we stayed last night, to Stewart BC. Driving down the Cassiar Highway was one of the most beautiful drives we have had since coming up here. Mountains towering all along the Cassiar Mountain Range, with glaciers and waterfalls that have frozen in place as they tumbled down the gigantic mountains. Then we turned onto the Glacier Highway which has some of the most spectacular glaciers in the world. We are staying about 8 miles from the place that is supposed to be the best...

Jul 31, 2013 - Kelowna BC- Prince George BC

-Adam We have been at my Grandfather's for the past two days having a visit with him. It was very relaxing and nice being spoiled there with tons of blue cheese, crackers, marmite as well as my grandparents company. We went to see the lake in Kelowna and got to buy a couple of well needed items. We bought an extra blanket so we don't have to freeze like we did in St. Mary Montana, bought new light bulbs and new oil for my baby. We changed the oil as a preventative measure on my bike and improved the wiring of a couple of lights on my bike....
