Playing Catch-Up

 Where are we? Hwy I-84 heading east to Utah. 

First, I wish to state, we are sorry, we did not stop and see anyone in Washington or Oregon, I know you understand the reason. Due to the Smoke and Fires off of the Interstate. 

Today, marks the 26 time we have refueled Gus. AkA DaGirls Rv. Yes, since leaving Yuma, Arizona, we have made 26 stops for refueling. I will get into more about our expenses, at a later date. 

I promise you an update a few days ago, as to where we have traveled as we were going to our Port of Entry leading us back into the US.

On the 17th of Aug., we pulled into a small city campground in 100 Mile House, B.C. There are 8 sites, but only 2-3 would be good for Gus. However, there is a spot in back, that would fit. It is just not a sight, but as long as you paid the $15 Ca. You would be welcome.



You can see, as beautiful as the pictures looks, this all due to the fires causing all the smoke.

It was here we met a Bicyclist that has traveled extensile in Canada. Rhona, travels only by bicycle during the summer months. During winter, she locates herself in some area that she feels comfortable in. We spend a wonderful evening discussing  travels and people we have met. 

Another couple we met Brian and Cathy, residents of Vancouver Island. We discuss many things as to tech., but something i really like. Ghost towns. In discussing, I learned backup along our travels were quite a few Towns that had been abandon. What exciting news for a future adventure in B.C.  

Since we were only here for 1 night, we left on the morning of the 18th and continued our journey south by southeast. 

Our next stop was Greenwood, B.C. This was another small campground. Due to the smoke and fires we only stayed oone night. We arrived in time, though that on Sat. there was a car show, music and vendors across the street. 




But alas our goal, leave Canada and cross back over. We were glad we made this decision as B.C. was requesting that non-Canadian citizens leave, freeing up spaces for Canada citizens. 

One place we stopped and had lunch was Williams Lake, B.C.




As, there was a casino and restaurant next door, we enjoy a brief time of rest and an excellent lunch.
