We made it home. We are exhausted. 6095 miles in 14 days.


Man... I almost forgot how awesome this city is. Vancouver is super cool.
The weather is perfect and you can tell Vancouver is really enjoying it

We've stopped in at the Yaletown Brewing Co for lunch and beers. Certainly
the best Canadian beer of the trip!

After this back to Seattle and the conclusion of the trip.

Heading down the Sea to Sky Hwy

This is it! The last night! Today we started the drive down the Sea to Sky
hwy towards Vancouver. Certainly one of the cooler drives othe whole trip.
We stopped at the Nairn Falls campground just outside of Whistler.

We decided to make the hike (about 2mi) to the falls from the camp, but
didn't realize that it actually gets dark here, so we had quite the
nightime hike (no flashlights) back to camp.

Right now we are celebrating the last night with steaks, jiffy pop, and a
canadian version of a west coast pale ale.

We are kings.

Made it to camp!

Made it to our camp for the night at Lake Tyhee Regional Park. At CA$25,
this is our most expensive camping night of the trip! Con artists here!

Fire is going, and dinner will be soon. Although it's 10:30pm it's still
not dark, but this is the closest to it that we've seen in a long time.
It's like a really long twilight or dusk.

Tomorrow through Prince George, then see how far south we can go. We are
still debating if we can go thru Vancouver or not. Depends on where we end

Time for dinner! Cheers!

Drove the Cassiar Hwy

Seems like we've been driving forever today. We made the long long drive
down the Cassiar, stopping for lunch by a river just south of Dease Lake.
The hwy was really nice, much more scenic then the route we took up. It was
a cell dead zone the whole way though, so this is the first chance I've had
today to connect.

Tonight we'll be camping just outside of Smithers, BC. We think we'll be
getting into camp around 9:30ish, then setting up a fire to cook some

We have high hopes that we might actually have a sunset tonight! I'm
excited to see the night again.

At the Continental Divide

We made it to our camp, we're at the lodge at the Continental Divide. This place is really awesome, but the mosquitos are crazy here so we are hiding in the tent.

This place is a good deal, includes free firewood, showers, and wifi for $15 a night!

Today was a big haul, doing about 550 miles, and we lost an hour because of the time change going over the border into Canada, so it looks like we are going to hit the sack early tonight.

Onward to the Cassiar highway tomorrow!

Back in Canada

After a very restful sleep at a small lakeside freebie campsite near the
Canada border, we hit the road this morning and made the 350 mile drive to
Whitehorse, Yukon. We decided to make our first fast food meal of the trip
at an A&W, since they are everywhere in Canada, and we know we'll be
getting to our next camp rather late tonight as we have another 200 miles
to go!
