You could read a book in this light!
Well, the town I'm currently in - Fort St John in Northern BC, isn't even currently listed on Travelblog, which probably sums up a lot right there. Instantly reminding me of something of a cross between Manjimup and Karratha (in West Oz) I'm not quite as distressed as I would otherwise be that I'm holed up in a hotel room with the flu *oink oink* (hahaha! just joking!... or AM i? 😉 Getting here was probably the most interesting part. We left Milwaukee at 6am and arrived here at midnight... and the sun shone the entire time! I drove on the wrong (right) side of the road for the first time, ate Poutine at some crappy rural Alberta diner and arrived in a complete daze at some obscure oil and gas outpost on the Alaska Hwy. Thankfully we've had a few days to relax and get rid of various pathogens, and it's so much more chilled out than the US!! Heading to Vancouver tomorrow though, so working my way up to the 13 hour winding drive through the mountains. Will post some photos to keep you all happy. Love, C.

lots a drivin'
Wow you're certainly makin some miles in this first while. I hope Vancouver is welcoming you. We've had rain rain rain over the past few days and starting to hang out for school holidays so we can head north for a spell. Take care drivin on the wrong side of the road ( especially when turning corners) , love dad.
