Day 5 - June 28 - had promise, but some rain. Made it to the Kiskatinaw Bridge, longest curved wooden bridge in the world apparently, see attachments. It's on the old Alaska highway just off the main road. We then made it to the Pioneer Village on the outskirt of Dawson Creek. Nice exhibit, reproductions mostly of what was there, schools, churches, barns, homes and such. Good hour for looking.

Doing some laundry and getting ready for tomorrow's journey to the WAC Bennett Dam. Will be staying in Fort St. John.

Cheers

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Thanks for reading. Dry this morning for the start of Day 6 - 29 June. Not going far, about 100 Kms up the highway then west 1 1/2 hours to visit the WAC Bennett dam.

Thought about how to link the photos to text, and my experiment worked - thanks for the comment(s).

I have learned that I need to change the windshield on the 1500, maybe even the 1200. Did my research and browsing of the forums and have settled on the Madstad unit. OEM windshield too tall and craning the neck to see over in inclement weather is not fun.

Cheers

That spelling is for the educated. Mine is the Texan spelling.
