Roadtrip 2017 is officially on…kind of.
Plan one was to visit Barkerville via Clinton and Williams Lake, then head North and East. Then they closed Highway 97 for forest fires and evacuated several communities between us and our destination.
Plan two was to divert to our third stop (McBride). When we called our pre-booked hotel to check the status of the roads the hotel was all “One road is open. Don’t come here.” (This is about the forest fires right? Someone would tell me if my antiperspirant had failed?)
Plan three, Coquihalla Highway East, then this happened.
At what point should I take the hint? Staycation anyone?
PS, this is definitely going in a story somewhere. I’m not sure yet, but a truck full of diesel, encroaching forest fires, and a Coke truck (three cars back) that refused to open up and prove his truck was empty…there is a story here somewhere. (I didn’t ask the guy in the Milk truck if he was carrying, somehow a milk party on the side of the road didn’t sound like as much fun.)
PPS, I’m detoxing from another attempt to give up Diet Coke. I really wanted the Coke truck to open up.
