Jul 26, 2015 - Leaving home to camp at Jasper Provincial Park

We left PG at 10 am, arrived at 3 pm and found our reserved camp-site at Whistlers Provincial camp grounds. After dinner we drove over to the tramway, but with an hour to go before closing we decided the $75 for a couple was not acceptable, so we had a nice scenic drive after our dinner.

Jun 28, 2015 - Prince George, BC

We made it as far as Prince George, BC's fourth largest city. However, we did not do much exploring. The owner was taken to the hospital before we arrived. He left a note for folks to find a spot and register tomorrow. Some of these campgrounds really fill up, and when you have a truck camper there are not a lot of ways to mark your site as occupied if you are out exploring. We decided it was a good day to have cocktails and read a good book, so we will take a quick peek at Prince George tomorrow and we will be on our way. Weather is still...

Jun 25, 2015 - Sintich RV Park

We got to the park early. We had a misunderstanding with the wagonmaster. When he says staff will park you he meant the Caravan staff. We got our spot as we were the first unit there and got set up. Others started to show up and they got parked and set up. We had a wagonmaster meeting and he still did not give a definitive answer on staff. Shirley did a load of laundry before we had our wagonmaster meeting. The park had hit and miss wifi and 28 channel cable. The only good thing was we had a pull-through site. Took Shirley out for a late...

Jun 25, 2015 - Prince George Truck & Equipment.

As we were heading to Dawson Creek and near Bear Lake the transmission started to act up. I got it to the side of the road so traffic could pass. Fantasy 16 pulled up behind and as I was trying to get into gear it started to move. I was able to start out at 100 km/hr and then it started to down shift. It finally defaulted to 4th and we limped into a parking space near a convenient store in Bear Lake. The tailgunner showed up and the problem was beyond him. He used his phone to call Freightliner, redirected to ABC Transmission and was able...

Jun 22, 2015 - Prince George, BC

At first light we headed out on the Maligne Lake Road. We spotted a young buck deer in velvet dinning on Indian paintbrush, a moose and a black bear with two cubs. The black bear had placed her cubs up a very tall tree, at least forty feet in the air. After returning to camp we got the camper ready for travel and we headed off for Prince George, BC. We saw several bears on the way and the usual beautiful scenery.

After we left the park and filled the motor home with gas it was 7:45 AM. Gas was $1.22 a liter. We purchased 81 liters for $100 Canadian dollars. Note: $1.25 Canadian = $1 US dollar. It was 53 degrees, sunny and clear but cool. Cache Creek is farming/agricultural community with irrigation. Obviously they don't have a shortage of water. These are a few towns we passed through today: Clinton - a cute little historic town, originally a stopping place at the junction of 2 roads leading to the goldfields. 100 Mile House - a larger town with...

Apr 20, 2015 - We are home

17 April We left the farm near Battleford around 8:30 and stopped to see the house Glenn is building. Had to see this house that will have 52 windows. The front of he house is facing north and is pretty much all windows, the view is looking at bush. The plan was to drive to Edson and stay the night. WE checked out a few places near Edmonton but most of them were closed. Edson is about half way and we are hoping we will find an RV park that will be open. As we are getting closer to Edson we see a road sign indicting a golf course with an RV...

Hello Everyone, Today our small band of friends traveled south from Dawson Creek to Prince George, BC, Canada. We (Charlie & Jeannie, Charlie & Patti, Denny & Claire) spent our first night boondocking in a Walmart, and were met by another of our Alaska Tour friends from New Zealand, Phil & Marit Shaw! While in the Walmart parking lot, Phil & Charlie had a great time throwing a Frisbee around followed by Movie Night at Phil & Marit’s trailer! The next day we caravanned to a local campground to stay the night and replenish our tanks. This was...

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.

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...
