We crossed the US/Canadian border on Tuesday, June 2nd at Roosville—just west of Glacier National Park. It’s a small station and usually not busy. We headed north on CA 93 and sometime later it changes to CA 95. This is a good highway (mostly two lane) with great scenery. You follow the Columbia River a long way and travel along many huge lakes so there is ample scenery. At Golden, BC, you pick up Trans-Canada Hwy/BC-1 through Salmon Arm (a decent size city). You can boondock here in front of the Canadian Tire store and there is a free dump and city water (also free).
We went through Kamloops (also a city) to Cache Creek where you pick up CA 97 and that takes you through Williams Lake (a small city where you can boondock in the Visitor Center parking lot) and to Prince George, BC. You can boondock in Prince George at the Treasure Cove Casino. They have two huge parking areas for RVs.
Our highways have been good-to-great with just a bit of construction. All of that work was resurfacing so there was lots of waiting for a flagman and one-lane traffic. No problem but just a delay (sometimes 30 minutes).
We had two full days/nights of rain but pretty weather otherwise. We have boondocked three nights in rest areas and none were posted. One had a sign… “No Overnight Parking” next to another sign that read… “Limit Your Stay to 8 Hours.” We weren’t bothered.
We have seen lots of deer and a few bald eagles plus a highway warning sign for a “Badger Crossing!”
From here, we head mostly due west to Prince Rupert. That is where we catch the ferry and we will get a campground for a night before we get on the ferry.
So far, the trip is good. We are still getting US TV 800 miles north of the border.
