I posted last night that we were heading to Dawson Creek and Mile Zero today. So why are we 60 miles west of Prince George?
There are several places on the highway between Prince George and Chetwynd that have been washed out. The BC authorities give a rough estimate of 2 weeks before the road reopens. We didn't learn this until we were halfway to Prince George, and didn't want to go back to Jasper to take the detour through northern Alberta. We'd been planning to return from Alaska on the Cassiar Highway, so we just switched and will go up the Cassiar to Alaska and come back the Alaska Highway to Dawson Creek.
We grabbed our maps and books and decided to stop for the night at Dave's Campground in Vanderhoof. It's a pretty nice place--long, level pull-through sites with cable TV. I'm paying $3 extra for the WiFi, but we needed to pay bills and I wanted to do my blog posts, so we paid it.
Tomorrow we'll go to Hazelton or New Hazelton--I'm going to go research campgrounds. The next couple of days will be spent in Hyder or Stewart.
