May 11, 2015 - Dawson Creek to Buckinhorse Creek 173 miles

May 11, 2015 Dawson Creek to Buckinhorse Creek 173 miles. Monday morning we finally were able to get to the Dawson Creek Visitor Center and get the info we wanted (plus a geocache). We walked down the street to the Alaska House which is an interpretive center for the building of the Alaska Highway (Alcan). The door was unlocked so we walked in and were told that technically they were not going to be open for a while since the staffer had to go to a town meeting that morning, but she was happy to give us the express tour, and walked us...

Sep 23, 2013 - fort nelson

spent the morning looking for bits and pieces foe the generator and the van we walked the length of the town. it is spread all along the highway as the stores would get more exposure that way. We need the exercise. I am really afraid of walking around the bush trails. so many bear warnings and I do not want to encounter one.atleast its a walk. mike managed to get a part he wanted. the shop didn't really know what it was he wanted and then Mike saw just the thing. They come as part of a package for new generators. Well the really nice young...

May 24, 2013 - Bucking Horse River Provincial Park

5-20-2013 On our way to Bucking horse Provincial Park in Skanni, BC. A Short day on the road today, after filling up with fuel in Dawson Creek. Overcast today and chilly as we are at 3310’ elevation. Didn’t see any active animals today, I guess they are waiting for the sun to come out before they crawl out of their beds. Bucking horse PP is right along the Bucking Horse river and the sites are back in style. There were only a few that we could fit into, so I guess it is good that we are here early today. We are currently on Mountain...

Jun 22, 2011 - Day One On The Alaska Highway

2011-06-22 Day One On The Alaska Highway We broke camp at 9:00 and pulled out on the Alaska Highway, formerly called the Alcan Highway. This road was an engineering feat accomplished by men and machines in less than nine months in 1942. The US felt a great need to get military supplies and equipment to air bases strung out across Canada and to protect our interests in Alaska from possible invasion from the Russian continent. An agreement was reached with Canada. They would give the right of way across western Canada from Dawson Creek. The...

Aug 31, 2006 - Ft. Nelson to Dawson Creek - Mile 0 Alaska Highway

Our final leg on the Alaska Highway down to milepost 0. Another one (there are so many) of our favorite spots along the highway, so we stayed a couple of days. It was time to wash the coach and car, and stock up on groceries at the local Safeway and other tidbits at WalMart - just like home. The temperature reached 77 degrees and the sun was bright both days, so it was time to wax the coach, a job that was much bigger than expected. We also drove around and looked at some of the housing areas in Dawson Creek, some nice new homes being...
