Jun 18, 2016 - Dawson Creek to Sikanni River Campground

The roads were wet and the weather wasn't good so this was a very short drive day. We left Dawson Creek late morning and took our time. This campground was reportedly nice and on the river. I could see that it would be pleasant is half of i wasn't under water!

Jun 28, 2011 - Sikanni Chief

We left Dawson Creek about 9:00am and headed for Sikanni Chief, only 162 miles for our first day on the Alaskan Highway. We were to take our time as Sam, the Wagon master didn't want us to arrive before 1:30pm give or take as he had to get the campsites organized with the Sikanni River campground folks. We had time to kill so we stopped in Fort St. Johns on the way at a Wal-Mart and did some looking and picked up some minor items. Saw they had a McDonald's on site, so we decided to have a breakfast sandwich, as we were long overdue for one,...

Jun 12, 2011 - June 10, 2011: Day 7-343 miles: BC

We leave Poplar Ridge at 6:30AM with overcast skies. The temperature is 56 degrees so we decide to wear shorts. We pass Valleyview and the road becomes 2 lanes. We see work on both sides of the road-logging and prep to make it 4-lane. It starts to rain at 8:30AM. We cross the Smoky River which is pretty wide. On the radio, which comes and goes at will, we hear the temp for Dawson Creek-high of 12 degrees C or 53 degrees F. Johnny says, “We still can’t get our clothes right.” We hear on the radio that Canada’s unemployment rate is 7.4%. We...

Jul 5, 2010 - Sikanni River, British Columbia, Canada

We left Dawson Creek on July 5th, only 10 miles down the road we saw a Doe and her fawn, the fawn was so small it couldn’t have been more than a week old. We saw our first moose a Cow and her calf. The were down in the ravine next to the road, Reggi was very adept at getting a picture of the cow but the calf was hidden.

Jul 22, 2009 - Alberta, British Columbia, and the start of the Alaska Highway in Dawson Creek

Our route today: Provincial Route 43W to BC Highway 2N to Dawson Creek. In Dawson Creek we entered the Alaska Highway (BC Highway 97N) We tried to get an internet connection at the Valleyview Public Library, but were unsuccessful. We could connect to the server, but without a Valleyview library card and account we could not get to the internet. We travelled to Grand Prairie and stopped at the Visitor Centre and Chamber of Commerce. They have a really nice facility with a number of tables and chairs and strong Wi-Fi. We updated this journal...

Jul 8, 2008 - Dawson Creek to Pink Mtn

Dawson Creek to Pink Mtn Campground ( No Town Near Here) Mileage to date 3,571 Actually it is Mile 0 for us leaving Dawson Creek, but silly Barb/Anne forgot to set the trip odometer on RV until 70 miles out of Dawson Creek. After breaking camp we paid Wal-Mart a visit as we needed cleaning supplies not groceries. Most of the Wal-Marts in Canada are not “Super” so only buying cleaning supplies is okay at Wal-Mart, cheaper than Safeway Grocery. We then went to Rotary Club meeting at nearby motel in Dawson Creek, BC, meal $15.00 per person,...
