We put some miles behind us this week, that is for sure. We took off from the wonderful home of Rosel and Wilf at their bed and breakfast in Prince George and headed north. Again, their hospitality was incredible, and it was a pleasure for all of us to sit at their table to have breakfast with them.

Fraser River Rafting Adventure
One canâ€™t beat a day on the river, and thatâ€™s exactly what we were able to enjoy with Maligne Rafting Adventures out of Jasper, Alberta, Canada. Theyâ€™ve been running the rapids since 1987, and immediately you can tell why theyâ€™ve been the provider of quality rafting adventures for so long. The receptionists were more than welcoming, their staff were really helpful, and the guides were professionalism and highly skilled.
Our next destination from Jasper was Prince George, which worked out well because it was right on the route to the Fraser River, about an hour west of Jasper, in the Mount Robson Provincial Park, so we followed their bus with our trucks. We met the guides, Aron and Drew, at the designated spot, and got suited up with a wetsuit, insulated water shoes, a windbreaker type jacket, a life jacket, and a helmet. Aron, our river guide for the day, gave us a short safety speech, while Drew, the driver/photographer, began his photographic documentation of our trip.

We ride again. After over a month hiatus off the road we returned to the highway for our voyage north to Alaska. Weâ€™d, again, like to thank all of those that supported us in our fundraising efforts that enabled us to finish the expedition. It means a lot to us, and is greatly appreciated.
From Denver, Steve, Celeste and Craig ventured north to Loveland to stay at Steveâ€™s Mom, Judyâ€™s, place, while I headed to Rocky Mountain National Park with an amazing female for one last adventure in Colorado. We met up the following morning for a delicious breakfast prepared by Judy and her husband, Tom, said our goodbyes, and got on I-25 North headed to Bozeman, Montana.
