Respite in British Columbia

We thought we could do a 40-hour-driving-marathon to Alaska.  It turns out we couldn’t.  I’ll accept the blame; many days of limited sleep leading up to our departure caught up with me and I’m now battling a nasty cold as we drive north.  We stopped last night at a Super 8 and are all feeling a little better after a night of sleep.  We’ve got 27 hours on the road completed.  We’ve got 21 to go!

We want to wish a special happy birthday to Donald Boisvert of Grande Prairie, Alberta.  A local man with a great wit and a hearty laugh, he found us attempting (unsuccessfully) to take a dignified photo in front of the GIANT statue of a beaver in Beaverlodge, Alberta.  He took a photo with us and chatted with us for a good while.  He had extensive knowledge of the area, local businesses, and a variety of famous Canadians, of whom Justin Bieber is our personal favorite, of course.

The road beckons, and we haven’t even started riding yet.  Time to get to it.
