Poor Paul had to do all the chores this morning as I was fearful of venturing outside. The ‘skeeters’ were inside the motor coach as well. Paul had to DAP the tub edge because we caught them sneaking across that border. We left a bit late because we were waiting for the Canadian Tire store to open in Smither’s. We are going to stock up on mosquito repellant – I am sure that will be worthwhile in Alaska as well.

Paul and I are gypsy’ing it today – no reservations for tonight. We were going to stay at the Bell 2 Lodge – but they wanted $47 per night for 15 amp; no water; no wifi; no cable . . . we just could not justify that expenses. Push comes to shove we can dry camp! UPDATE: Bell 2 Lodge was the only thing around!!!

About 10:30, Paul pointed out a Black Bear running across the 16 West right in front of us. Mr. Bear was quick though so no photographic proof. The ‘Beast’ drove through several construction zones – on a Saturday! We noticed that the workers/flag people were far more friendly and polite then their American counterparts.

Wildlife Spotted: Ten Bears (one was a cute brown baby) – Still waiting to see my first Moose!
