Our adventure across Canada started by leaving Saltspring Island.
We drove to the ferry terminal for our last minutes on the island. then got on the ferry.
It was a normal ride on the ferry, nothing special. We just got some food, and then sat down for the rest of the ride.
When we got to Vancouver we drove for three hours to a town called Hope. It was a nice drive next to the mountains, there was nice scenery.
When we got there it was too late to set our tents up, so we had to sleep in a motel.
We left pretty early the next morning. We drove for around twenty minutes, and then saw an avalanche lookout, to look at an avalanche that destroyed a lot of land around 50 years ago.
Just as we were turning in, the car stopped, so we got out and looked at the engine. We thought it might have over heated from going up the hill with the u-haul, so we left it there and then looked at the avalanche, there was a lot of rocks everywhere, it was pretty cool.
When we came back to the car, we tried turning it on, but it didn’t work. We thought the car was broken, and it would be the end of the trip.
My dad changed one of the fuse’s, and then it started. We were able to drive for around twenty minutes again before it broke down. This time it wasn’t very long before the engine started again. Of course, it stopped twenty minutes later again for the third time, but this time, it was stopped for a really long time. A guy pulled off from the highway to help, so then finally it worked.
We stopped at a little place in the middle of nowhere for travelers, we got a sandwiches and then left.
It was really cool driving through the forest, and then into the desert.
We stopped at a place called Princeton, to get the car checked, but they weren’t able to figure out what was wrong, so we kept on driving to a place called Osoyoos in the Okanagan valley, it was really nice there. We went to check out a really nice resort, but it was full, so we had to go to another resort.
When we got to the camp site we set up the tents, and we went for a swim. After that we had dinner, and then we went to bed.
The next morning we got up and decided to stay another day.
We went for a hike to a visitor center up in the desert, but it cost money to go any further, so we came back down and went for a swim.
After that we cleaned out our car, had dinner, and then went to the beach again.
When we came back I started on this blog, and then went to bed.
So that’s all, it’s over, you may as well go do your typical day again.
