On the road again.

We are finally on the road, again.  Luke and I left Grand Forks on a sunny, unusually warm February afternoon and headed west towards the coast.  We had decided that the best way to test out our little camper would be a night in Manning Park.  Southern BC has been very warm for this time of year so much of the snow is gone, but we managed to find quite a bit in the park.  Manning has winter camping areas and the Lightening Lakes were still completely frozen.

Although very warm for February, the temperature still dropped down to below freezing as the sun was setting.  This is when Luke realised that the heater he thought he had fixed was in fact not working.  He spent the next hour tinkering away and as usual was able to get it going.  So we had a toasty first night in the camper.

The next day we walked around the lakes on very well groomed trails.  There were a few other people up snowshoeing and cross country skiing but it felt like we had the place to ourselves.

Our next stop is somewhere near Seattle, see you in the USA!
