    Philippe und Antoine

    June 6, 2020 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Wir freundeten uns mit unseren Nachbarn Filipe (35, Montreal) und antuan (31, Belgien) an, die uns direkt zum gemeinsamen Abendessen einluden.

    Wir fuhren nach Smithers um den Kocher umzutauschen und einen neuen zu kaufen. Anschließend holten wir noch einen Wein für's Abendessen und wollten noch ein wenig wandern. Über zwei Stunden irrten wir einen Berg hinauf auf der Suche nach einem Aussichtspunkt, doch kamen nur wieder dort heraus, wo wir angefangen hatten. Auf der Hälfte hatte es begonnen zu regnen und meine Schuhe waren schon ziemlich durchgelaufen, weshalb ich sie erstmal übers Feuer hängen musste um sie zu trocknen.
    Wir quatschten den ganzen Abend mit den beiden und machten eine leckere Gemüse-Bohnen-Suppe überm Feuer.

    Meziadin Lake, Cassiar Hwy

    June 29, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 77 °F

    Had excellent breakfast in Smithers on the way out of town, Two Sisters cafe, pancakes for Tom and French toast with prosciutto for me! So good!
    Heading northwest, stopped at Moricetown Canyon.
    When the salmon are running they (First Nation locals) catch the fish with nets here. Actually a pretty spot. Next stop was another Canyon, Hagilwet (?) that had a very cool suspension Bridge we could walk across.
    We pretty much kept driving from that stop on because the park we wanted to stay at, Meziadin Lake was "first come, first serve" and this weekend is Canadas three day, with Canada Day on July 1st. Got in about 3 with only a couple of sites left. Got a great site overlooking the lake next to an incredibly nice Canadian couple, Dennis and Edith. Shared "adult beverages " and popcorn with them. Their home is in Smithers and they were just returning. We picked the brains about routes and stops. Just great people!
    After beverages we spent most of the evening inside due to rain...and when the rain stopped, wow...we did the mosquitoes seem to intensify. Both Tom and I struggled with getting bit even IN the RV. I actually got out of bed and put on repellant! Just going in and out let them get "in", and you know that awful feeling when you can hear them buzz in your ear! But we survived, am not going to let this get me down.
    PS we saw two black bears today!

    👍🏻👍🏻 to the black bear sightings & a huge 👎🏻👎🏻 to mosquitoes! Did you swat at them with the zapper racquet? It can be so satisfying to fry those little blood suckers! No aggression issues with mosquitoes here... 🤣

    I hate when mosquitoes buzz in your ear when your trying to sleep. Hopefully tonight will be better for you. Looks like some good food for breakfast. Lollie!

    Sunny Days and Friends in Smithers

    August 16, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Soon after turning onto Highway 16 Matt Lucas spotted us on the road and gave us some fresh fruit and cookies, what a nice surprise! The next day we got to Smithers where we took a rest day with our gracious hosts Barry and Kay in their beautiful new home. We also had a great visit with fellow cyclists and adventurers Theresa DeGroot and Bryan Swansburg across the valley.Read more
