RV Cruisin' beginsApril 28 in Canada
Well after months of planning and well over 12 months of working and saving the dream of RVing through the Rockies begins.
It’s our first day of cloud and rain... and we are OK with that! The morning started slowly, with pack up done, breakfast completed and a taxi ride to the outskirts of Vancouver where the RV was waiting for us.
For the nerds... it’s a Ford F-350, a small V8, 5 berth vehicle that is 7m long, 3m wide and 3.7m high. Comes with A/c, heater, generator, separate shower & toilet, full fridge and microwave and plenty of bits and pieces for eager campers.
Took us several hours to do the prep but finally we were on the road, immediately got lost twice. With the marriage still in tact we renavigated our way to our very first Walmart, a combination of Woolies, K-Mart, Big W etc.
With rain dripping and clouds descending we found our way onto Canada Highway 1, heading west to the ocean and then north to Squamish for our first night only to the greeted by a rapidly overflowing Shannon Falls, right next to a cloud covered Sea to Sky Gondola.
The evening was filled with setting up camp, seeing the falls and then settling our gear into the RV.
It’s fresh outside, still raining, but absolutely delightful. Both of us are loving our new Merrelll shoes, comfortable to walk all day.
Now for a good night’s sleep with rain tinkling on our roof!Read more
