    Alaska Day 42 Meziadin to Prince George

    August 17, 2019 in Canada ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Woke up to rain this morning. So a quick up and out by 8 AM. Destination today, the big city of Prince George BC, about 400 miles. Rain all day. Only one interesting stop was for gas in a very small Indian (all tribes called First Nations here). They have the largest collection of totems in British Columbia. More than show in picture and quite impressive. Pretty much drove straight through with only stops for gas, food and wine - the essentials. We truly feel that we are back in civilization as of today. Better roads, more traffic, fast food and many places with a population more than 100! 😃. And, the most exciting, internet! Phoned ahead for our campground, lots of choices here. Spent a lot of the afternoon planning the last week of our trip. Decided to go to Vancouver for 3 days, after a day of rest in Prince George. Also decided to splurge on a hotel in Vancouver. Thanks to daughter-in-law, Nancy, we made reservations at a Marriott in Vancouver. Looking forward to it. Did all our hook ups in the rain tonight - not fun. Have been really tired of "junk" food so we got sole, rice and broccolini - tasted wonderful! Both tired and early bed.Read more
