Ok - on to the blog thing.
After a long day on the road from McMinnville, Oregon, we stopped for the night near Sandpoint, Idaho, at a quiet waterfront spot on Pend Oreille lake. Other than a few passing trains to punctuate the night, it was a quiet one. The cheapest fuel in Sandpoint was sold out of fuel (funny how that works!), so we emptied the rest of our 5 gallon cans into the tank and made it to the last station before the border in Bonners Ferry and filled everything to the rim. The goal is to avoid, if at all possible, buying fuel in British Columbia - which is kind of like California when it come to prices!
Border crossing was a breeze, and we were on our way to a brief stop in Wycliffe, BC, where we visited with Dale and Doug who run a lovely B&B on the St Marys River. St Marys River B&B.
We had nothing much to 'donate', but being the last convenient dump site before home, the tanks were all drained at the convenient site behind the information centre in Cranbrook, BC.
There were only a few traces of snow visible in shaded spots in the bush and roads were bare and dry.
We made it over the mountain passes, and back down into Alberta on the same tank of fuel from Idaho. Not satisfied with the prices in Banff or Canmore, we again stopped and dumped in our spare supply so we could make it to a little station in the country near home, that had even cheaper prices. It still cost Can$138. to fill up, but always good to save a little.

So don't expect another update for a while - unless I do something, or take some photos.
