Alaska '08 Day 66, Squamish to Seattle

Sat Aug 16, 2008

The driving was much easier this morning in the daylight. No problem when you can see the lane markings. There was construction all the way into Vancouver. Between the grades, turns and heaves Clinton to Lillooet to Pemberton, and the Construction Whistler to Vancouver, I would say this is the most challenging road I have ever driven a camper on .

We tried to park the camper outside Vancouver and run the jeep into downtown but we couldn't find a lot to park the camper. Everything was just too congested so we pushed on to Seattle.

We crossed the US border at Abbotsford (skipping the Surrey crossing because I remembered the crossing for the Fraser Canyon route). From there we took 546 to 539 to I-5 to I-90. After striking out at a couple campgrounds we were able to phone ahead to Trailer Inn in Bellevue. Turns out this is the same place we stayed in '96.

245 miles today.

7901 miles so far.
