Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Moving Along the Ribbon of Highway

Friday was a great day! We met Paul and Mary in Fort St John, had a coffee and started for Fort Nelson. It was a gentle 3 hour drive to the campground. We chose the Westend RV Campground, as it was treed and a bit more like camping than a parking lot.
Along the way, at Milepost 135, we saw our first true glance at the farthest north Rockies we have encountered. Very impressive.

I have also attached a photo of the sunset the night before.

Days are already long here. Hard to know when to go to bed and when to get up.
We met some nice folks in the campground. Carl and Carolanne from Ontario, and Anna and Holger from Germany.
No campfire but lots of good food and drink took place. Kind of strange, we are all following the same routes and destinations, and have booked the same campground in Dawson City for the summer solstice party!
Have a great day, we shall touch base tomorrow morning, internet allowing!

  2. Hey, is that the picnic table from the campsite or one someone brought with them?!

  3. Hey was there a sign for Darryl Mills at Pink Mountain? Can you take a pic on the way back if there is? He's the only member of our extended family with a claim to fame, that is until Blake hits it big!
