Roll-over Firebus!

Waking up this morning was pretty tough – we’ve had a few long days of driving recently (and it’s starting to wear on us). We knew today was going to be special though. The van’s odometer is headed for the zero for the first time. Although we were hoping to actually BE...

Wild Alaskan Highway

Today was a whole day of driving along the Alaskan Highway – we didn’t do much other than drive, eat, fill up, and see tons of animals. We also made a quick stop into the Laird Hot Springs which has by far the hottest we’ve been in. It is also a natural setting instead of a...

Mile 0 and 30000 kms

We were up early this morning, eventually realising we’ve gained (i.e. gone back) another hour. We found this out by accident when we found the store closed despite being open at 8 am and our clocks indicating the time was 8:30 am . No cell signal means no automatic time updates on the...

Makin’ miles

Today the objective was to make it to Dawson Creek – We didn’t really make it all that far yesterday and so we wanted to get some miles behind us.¬†Hinton was a good stop-over despite the fact we didn’t originally intend on stopping there last night. We made a quick detour at...

A Bit Sheepish

This morning we awoke early to the sound of intense rushing water that is Athabasca Falls. We arrived late last night as the sun was setting and decided to call it a night in the parking lot. The falls are impressive and quite fierce – developed as a result of the glacier shearing large...

A bear of a day

Today we spent the morning in foggy rainy Lake Louise area getting some work done. Andrew had a bit of a hiccup with the computer so we stuck around until we got it resolved. We know that once we leave this area we’ll likely not have cellphone signal again for a while because...

Recovery

Today we left Field (British Columbia), in the afternoon and wandered over to Lake Louise in Alberta. We planned on taking it easy today so we could both recover a bit from our hikes for the past two days. We took a visit to Lake Louise again, though the weather was far worse than when we...

Chasing the Setting ...

Today we did another hike – this one however, was a doozie. Our morning was mostly spent on the phone with family which turns out wasn’t the smartest plan given the rest of the day’s circumstances. It was partially necessary since we’ve been in iffy cell zones in the...

The deal

It has been quite a trip so far and I love to be able to share it with everyone. I am sorry we are so behind РI realise you all probably want to know our most recent adventures but as you can imagine we both have a lot on our plate and sometimes the site can be pretty intense to keep...
