Sep 17, 2019 - South to Cache Creek

09/17 We traveled 275.5 miles today taking 5 hours and a stop over for lunch in Williams Lake. We packed up and walked Daisy, then hit the road southbound at last. We had some fog at first then sun for a while. This portion of the highway is called the Cariboo Highway. There is large hay fields and grazing cows on the hills. We were passed by logging trucks and processed lumber trucks. There were many small bodies of water on either side of the highway keeping things very green. We were driving along enjoying the scenery when suddenly, bam!...

Jul 19, 2019 - Cache Creek

On Friday we drove from Revelstoke to Brookside Camping in Cache Creek for a one-night stop. The environment changed often during the 175-mile drive. Things were mountainous and lush during the first part of the trip. We arrived at Sicamous on Shuswap lake. Named after a First Nation Tribe, lake extend a total of 51 miles culminating at Salmon Arm. The Trans-Canada Highway from Sicamous to Salmon Arm is heavily trafficked running up and down the hills adjacent to the lake. The road flattened out past Salmon Arm as we bordered Little...

May 30, 2019 - Cache Creek

We made it into Canada with no problem. They didn't care about the dogs just if we had guns. No questions about beef this time. I'm having power problems on the Motor home, can't get power from 30 amp box's. Unfortunately that is the only power available at this campground. I don't mean to imply that the power problem is there fault though, I had problems at the last campground too. The part to fix it might not be able to get shipped to Alaska. So this might be a real problem if 50 amp wont work either. Generator works fine.

North to Alaska 2019

Jun 18, 2017 - Heading to the great white north.

We woke in the fair city of Victoria and headed to the ferry to Vancouver. It was a bit nippy and slightly wet but we carried on. Mary and Joe had breakfast on the ferry and although we tried to avoid driving through downtown Dennis' GPS just wouldn't let us. Eventually we got on track and headed toward Whistler. The drive was really quite spectacular with sheer faced mountains covered in lush green vegetation. Oh yeah, did I mention there were wild horses on the side of the road? Almost 300 miles later we pulled into the Bear Claw Inn in...

Sep 7, 2016 - Cache Creek

Sept 7 Today, we started to make our way home. Good roads and weather. In the town of 100 mile house , about 200 miles from Prince George, the Fit’s transmission locked up. We were in the center of town when Margaret called us and told us we were dragging the car. We had to have it towed to Kamloops, BC to the closest Honda Dealer. Since we were heading the right way, we continued to Cache Creek for the night and caught up with a couple of our travelers from the tour. We had a quiet night, getting to know each other a little better.

Jun 24, 2015 - Hat Creek Ranch (Dry Camp)

We are dry camping. Staff parked us in a haphazard format. We had a hot dog cookout provided by staff. Dinner was followed by campfire and marshmallows. We were able to walk around the grounds and they had an old town setup with a lot of horse drawn farm equipment.

Jun 12, 2015 - Cache Creek, British Columbia

We left the RV park at 7:30 AM and got to Sumas, WA where we waited to go through the US/Canadian Boarder. At 8 AM we got the OK to go through after I gave up half of an uneaten apple. The boarder patrol only looked at our passports. He didn't ask for anything else. At 10:00 it began to sprinkle and then rain but soon cleared up. More beauty - majestic mountains, lush evergreens in many shades of green. We are traveling on Highway 97 known as the Cariboo Highway. It is the old gold rush trail. We arrived shortly after noon at the RV Park in...

Perkins Alaska Trip

Aug 10, 2014 - Cache Creek, BC

Another travel day from Prince George to Cache Creek, BC, a distance of about 275 miles. It was OK driving it, but it got warmer and warmer as we traveled south until we reached here and it was 97°! I didn’t think I would get a chance to wear my summer stuff, but it has all changed. The landscape has changed again and we’re in a dessert. Except for where they use the sprinkler and they use it all over the place. We are camped at Hat Creek Ranch. There is a restaurant and gift shop, very nice. We had an ice cream while we waited for...

Sep 3, 2013 - We saw a bear

What a great day We saw a bear. Driving along and I wasn't even looking for wild life as I didn't think we were in the right type of country( like what would I know about bears and their habitat) mike spotted it and was so excited. I wanted him to turn around so I could see it and he kindly did. When we got back there he was just lumbering across the road I was too slow with the camera but from now on I am going to be armed and ready to shoot( with the camera) We have had a lovely day today. We went for a drive this morning up to Big White...

Aug 11, 2013 - Day 1 of our journey to Alaska

Perfect day to start our journey to Alaska! We stopped in Everett to say goodbye to our daughter and grandkids before we headed north. I really wanted a photo of the two of us in front of the Outback with the Sky Box on top so I grabbed my purse for Barb to take the picture and... no cell phone! Oh no! As I thought about it I was pretty sure that I left it at home on the kitchen counter, but Barry (using his cell phone ap "magic") and with Barb's help was able to locate the cell phone - at home, just as I thought. Oh well, if I had to leave...
