Trip Recap


We safely completed our trip on Wednesday (Aug. 10, 2016) and had a wonderful time.  After leaving Chetwynd, BC we basically made a beeline for AZ.  Most of the route was in areas that we had been several times before so there was no strong desire to explore.  The overnight stops we made along the way were in Prince George, BC; Merritt, BC; Pasco, WA; Glenn Ferry, ID; Beaver, UT; and Happy Jack, AZ.  Most of the trip was uneventful except for the last three days with very high winds which was not fun.

Miles Driven:  5844

Lowest gas price: $1.81/gal (Chandler, AZ)

Just north of the border is the Okanagan area which is famous for their fruit.  Peaches, apricots, plums, and some berries were ready.  The peaches were only $12 for a large box.  We so wanted to get a big box but we were afraid they would take them away at the border.

We settled for gorging on some peaches along the side of the road before the border. So good!



Just about to make it back into the USA.  Crossing was relatively painless with the usual questions and inspecting the trailer for forbidden fruits
