Free Sleeping

So we have officially been on the road for a week.  Oscar (our van) is running like a dream and we’re adapting well to the gypsy life. We’ve managed to camp for free on five out of seven nights, and we’ve had beans for nearly every meal.  This is absolutely necessary if we want to stick to our budget because fuel is ridiculously expensive up here.

Next week: on to Dawson City and Alaska.

Here are some pictures from the road.

Old Fort Point. We twisted Zach's rubber arm into taking the day off work and joining us in Jasper.

Macdonald Creek, BC. Lucky we had a 2004 copy of 'The Milepost'. We wouldn't have found this campsite without it.

Finally some sunshine. Stretching the legs after a few hours of rain on the road.
