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....

Jun 16, 2013 - Yellowhead Highway, Saskatoon, SK to Prince George, BC

Sunday, June 16 Weather: Overcast and 54 degrees with some drizzle then by the time we reached Jasper, sunny and in the 70s. Yellowhead Highway, Saskatoon, SK to Prince George, BC We climbed out of our cozy nest in the back of the Tahoe around 6:00 am MT and drove into Saskatoon for breakfast at McDonalds. I was reminded that Canadians no longer use the penny when I offered to give a penny to make the amount an even dollar. Their cash register receipts now automatically add a line for “rounding adjustment” to the nearest 5 cents. I would...

Jun 8, 2013 - Idling in Prince George

We pulled into Prince George yesterday, a 90 mile drive from Quesnel where we spent Wednesday night. Long story, I had been feeling poorly since Sunday. Low fever and headache and dry cough. Finally Wednesday afternoon I decided I better get it checked out. Ya I had some help with that decision. Off to the emergency room at the local hospital in Quesnel about 5PM. After 5 hours and about $740 out of pocket I was released. They did blood work, antibiotic via IV drip and a chest x-ray the doctor diagnosed pneumonia. I am in the middle of the...

May 24, 2013 - Prince George, BC

We are all very excited because today our destination is Prince George and the Canadian Super Store. Right, another shopping day. Bee Lazee RV Park is a little bit outside of town and we had to drive through some nasty road construction but it is a lovely RV Park with good electricity. And just before the road construction is Aspen Grove Golf Course. More rain and this time it meant mosquitoes. Our 2nd day dawned bright and sunny so the golf course beckoned. However clouds rolled in and between the 4th and 5th hole the skies opened up....

Sep 27, 2012 - Prince George, BC

Today we traveled the rest of the Cassiar and the Yellowhead highway to Prince George, BC. The weather was cold and rainy most of the way and it was a long day. Tonight we're camping at the BEE LAZEE Rv park just south of Prince George. We've come over 800 miles south since Sunday and have today arrived back into the population. Prince George is a good sized town with lots of all the stuff we find in large towns. Cars, traffic, lot's of people and hustle bustle. We're a little sad to leave all that vast quiet space behind us. But we're...

Alaskan Adventure

Sep 14, 2012 - Day 77

Departing Telkwa, we continued Easterly on the Yellowhead Highway towards Prince George, BC. A nice sun shiny day. We passed through the towns of Houston, Topley, Decker Lake, Burns Lake, Fraser Lake, and Vanderhoof on our way to Prince George. Houston boasts the largest fly fishing rod, a 60 ft long anodized aluminum fly rod with a 21 in. "Skuskomish Sunrise" flourescent fly. I don't think I would want to try to do any fishing with it. Houston is also the Steelhead Fishing Capitol of the World. We were not able to get a photo of the...
