North to Alaska!

Traveling to the GREAT northwest via British Columbia. What a great drive up I-5! Wineries, lakes, greenery all around! We're off for the summer in our Arctic Fox Truck Camper with our trusty Campin' Kitty, Penny.

Ksan Historical Park

This interesting historic park is located off highway 16, in the Hazeltons. There are several "Longhouses" (tour available) and totem poles decorated with northwest images. The museum is small, but interesting. The top floor has a gallery and had a great watercolor show from a talented area artist. The adjacent campground is great!
Under the trees, flat and within walking distance to both the park and town.

Our Arctic Fox RV Truck Camper

Hey, THIS is the vehicle to drive through Alaska. We've only seen a few Big Rigs (like busses) - and our Arctic Fox Truck Camper is the Cadillac of truck campers. We've seen several on the road, and some Lance truck campers, too.
Some of the roads are not great - like the Cassiar Highway! But they are tolerable in the truck camper. Our camper has a slide out, full kitchen (microwave, gas stove/oven, double sink, shower, etc. Full size queen mattress! Just enough room for two and a small pet. They can be rented, if you're considering buying one. We saw a lot of rentals at the Canada campgrounds, too. (mostly Germans!)
