Another 300 miles got us to Mcleese Lake south of Prince George. Found a campground on the lake with full hook ups and WiFi.

We’ve been finding towns alone the way with strange names, like, 150 Mile House, 100 Mile House, 70 Mile House. We found a ranch called 108 Mile Ranch. Check my photos. I’m thinking the towns are named for miles from the border. I believe this was one of the gold rush routes back in the late 1800’s We’ve driven by several old gold mining locations.

We’re heading for Bryan & Lou’s place tonight, really that’s one of reasons we’ve come this route. Bryan & Lou are more friends we made in Cabo San Lucas two winters ago. They have a summer place in Keremeos British Columbia. We’re going to spend a few days with them before going on to Spokane. There place is about 40 miles north of the Canadian border. We’ve driven about 60 miles alone the Hayes river coming from Princeton to Keremeos. The road follows the river down through this never ending canyon, that’s quite spectacular.

Arrived at our friends place and find Bryan is off to Vancouver working, but will be back by Sat. So Lou showed us where to park the RV and fixed me up with a Caesar’s.

We've been hanging out here with Bryon & Lou over the Labor Day weekend. Heading for Spokane in a couple'a days and calling it the end of the line for this Alaskian trip.

Hope those of you that have been following our travels have enjoyed going along with us, and enjoyed the pictures and my stories of the trip.
