I left home about 7:30 am and drove to Prince George where I tried out my new laptop with the WiFi and it worked great. I stayed in Prince George about two hours and went into Michael's Craft Store where I bought a starter beading kit. I have never done that before but will give it a try and see how creative I can be. Then I drove on towards McBride, as I was leaving Prince there was a sign saying that make sure you have enough gas as nothing for 202 km. Why would they put a sign like that after you passed the last gas station. I probably had enough gas but rather than risk it I had to backtrack to get some gas. It was a lovely uneventful drive, I stopped by the Fraser River at a rest stop for a little while. It was very hot. I arrived at McBride just before 5pm played with the laptop a bit and then went out for a Chinese meal. I love this sense of independence I could do this a lot. Tomorrow I plan to get up early and drive on to Calgary, about 10hours as I will not go through Jasper Park because it will be slow going because of all the tourists.
