Prince George, British Columbia
Mamayeh RV Park and Bed and Breakfast
We really enjoyed our time at Fort Telkwa RV Campground and ended up extending our stay. We cleaned off some of the Alaska dirt which hadn't been touched since we stopped at Fort Nelson on the way to the Alaska Highway. The campground had a free pressure washer, but we decided to clean the coach from our site.
Bill washed the truck and found lots of chips in the paint under all that dirt. He followed up with a coat of wax. We knew it was suppose to rain today, but we didn't care. It really needed a cleaning.
Here's a photo of the shower/laundry/sauna at the park. It was very clean and well laid out. The laundry had brand new equipment. The sauna was wet/dry and free. WIFI was great and you could stream and was unlimited.
Here's the view out our living room window once the window was a little cleaner.
We left early this morning--out of the park before 8:30 hoping to beat any rain that was predicted.
Our travels took us east on the Yellowhead Highway--Trans Canada Highway. I didn't get a picture of the sign but when we arrived in Frasier Lake there was a sign that read "Welcome Evacuees free camping". The smoke was bad and no way would you have your windows down.
People ask us if Passport America is worth the small annual fee of less than $50. Mamayeh RV Park is full hook ups, pull through, 50 amps and WIFI. The sites are large but there are no frills. It costs $19 Canadian or $15.06 in US funds. We were lucky to find a place with all the evacuees in the area.
Bill and I went back into town to fuel up the truck and our tummies. Believe it or not, he found a cowboy bar called
The Cowboy Ranch that was great. He could watch his old time cowboy movies from the TV monitors everywhere. They had brisket on special for $9.00 and I can't remember ever having such tender and flavorful brisket.
Tomorrow we're going to keep on trucking and hopefully when we get on the other side of the mountains near Jasper, there won't be any worry about the fires. It does make me a little nervous when I see the winds when we are surrounded by trees. We'll be ready to leave immediately if necessary.
