Leaving this morning..Sunday...for a 5 day drive. Off east on the Crowsnest, as far as Castlegar, turn north up the west side of the Rockies...into Revelstoke, on to Salmon Arm and hoe on Thursday. Just want to shake out the cobwebs a bit and I have a couple cftar brew places to investigate.

Due to the pandemic, we follow very strict procedures..in the brix n stix home and the wheeled one. Masks on when in any public spaces, we have two washing stations, so upon entry, washy hands. We do not socialize..I can see the eye brows at mention of a craft house. I cannot speak for anywhere else, but in BC these are closely regulated. Names and number at the door, wait till assigned a cleaned space, staff are always masked. Customer is masked until seated...and before leaving the table.

So...looking forward to just being on the road for a few days.

Have a good trip Gary - sounds like fun.

Oh and make sure not to cross various lines on a map - according to politicians license plates begin shedding virus’s’z immediately upon leaving um town? or is it health region? Or is it province?

Anyway it begins immediately...

You could park overnight at the boat launch at Syringa Creek PP. during the day there are people walking dogs etc at the boat launch and at 1/2 km farther up the road at the campground, however by late afternoon, there won’t be a sole around.
The boat launch is the first left after the big condo complex ( couple hundred yards)
After you turn in, I suggest taking a right turn at the bottom of the little hill, as you enter the large parking area. After you enter the big parking area at the bottom of the little hill, the all season boat launch is to the boat left, and the summer season boat launch is to the right. Summer boat launch is a long ways from the water right now, so little if any traffic down that way.
Have fun on your trip.

Enjoy!


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

The gov't request is to not cross provincial boundaries, so we are within BC's lines.

The forecast shows sun for the next couple days, with cool temps. We could get some snow, no doubt but we can park whenever we need to. Don't HAVE to be be home till we get there, although the lady has a hair appointment on Friday and..you know..things could be tense.

They have killer fish and chips. ( nothing compared to places on the coastal water ways can make) but for a little pub at the top of a defunct ferry ramp on the shores of the Columbia River, surrounded by mountains, it’s pretty good.
PS: I used to live 3 driveways west of the pub. Me and my 2 neighbours were the first people to drink a beer at the pub. Yup... we wondered down there with a couple beers in hand the night the poured the footings.... [emoticon]
Enjoy your trip.
