We've been rescued.....

Hello from Beautiful British Columbia, my dear friends....

We have been on the road now since July 16th and everything has gone well....until this morning....

Our new RV has handled well, but our faithful truck has developed transmission problems. We are fortunate to encounter this situation right outside Fort St. John, BC which is a major hub for the variety of oilfield services. There are many things we love about Canada and Canadians...the beauty of each province and territory and the wonderful "can-do" and "how can we help" attitude. With a truck that needed immediate servicing, a competent flat bed driver towed it & Mr. Outback to the service center and another very nice driver towed our rv, the girls and myself to a campground and got us settled in. We will know more tomorrow as to what the problem is but at least we have a comfy home to relax in....


... and our own bedroom right up those steps...
The weather is cooperating and though we may have had a set back of a couple days, we are grateful for our surroundings and the kindness of strangers...

I will leave you with an image of our recent stop at Banff/Jasper Provincial Parks - 
Along a milky blue river....

That's all for now...just sitting tight and waiting for Plan B...
Back soon...

Oh...I think sitting back and looking at those surroundings isn't all that bad. Hope things are an easy fix and enjoy the rest of your trip.

Hope it's nothing too expensive to fix and you'll be on your way soon!

Was in Banff skiing years ago...incredibly beautiful... Would love to see it in the summertime.

So sorry to read about this glitch - I hope it's all sorted out soon. Will your journeys bring you across to the Island?

Yes, you are right, at least you have a really nice place to stay. Hope it doesn't cost to much to get fixed.

Oh, just love BC, Pat! Hope you trouble isn't big and glad you and the girls are safe. Have fun but maybe this will curtail that fun just a bit! Hope not! Thinking of you from the icky and sticky 'Burgh! xxoo Nancy
