Today was uneventful, riding 280 miles from Dawson Creek to Fort Nelson.
Steve saw one bear and some other animals but it was really just putting on the miles. Temperatures stayed in the 50’s and 60’s most of the day. We ran into a little rain—sprinkles, really—but nothing that slowed us down.
A cool part of these rides is interacting with other riders. We’ve been running into others who are going to the same places we are. We stop and talk at the gas stations and rest stops and restaurants along the way, comparing bikes and routes and discussing must-see places.
Prices for everything—food, campsites, hotels, gas—are pretty crazy…but we knew that when we were planning this ride. I paid $10 a gallon for gas today…but it was 94 octane and I just couldn’t resist.
Tomorrow we’re heading to Liard Hot Springs; not a very long ride, less than 200 miles.
All going well.
