SpringerMom:

Sue, were there actually flowers in the urinal? If not, considering that it is hanging on a wall of the seemingly occupied house, I wonder if it might be plumbed in and used for intended purpose?? Never underestimate people....!! haha.

Oh no, it can't be, really, gross!!!!!!  LOL

Gross, for certain! I hope that it's an attempt at odd humor! I looked back at the photo, and see that there is also what appears to be a traffic light positioned sideways on the next wall over. So, may just be "collectors" of odd art! Who knows!

Ladies, there were flowers at one time, now it appears to be just the dead stems hanging down.  I also think the owner is a "collector" of oddities.  Didn't want to hang around long to ask, two big mean looking dogs came running and barking toward the fence so we just skedaddled!

Today I did chores, laundry and cleaning.  After lunch my friend Carol and I did some line dancing on the concrete site next to us.  Boy do my legs and feet hurt now!  I'm used to dancing on a wood floor, but we did have a good time.  Temps got up to 70 today with sunny clear skies, some breezes.

We are traveling with friends, all of us have RV's of some kind.  So far there are two motor homes, one 5th wheel and 2 trailers.  When we get to Dawson Creek, BC there should be about 12 or 13 rigs.  More will be joining us later as they have commitments in Goshen, Ind now.  We are caravaning, but not follow the leader type.  Oh sometimes we will be traveling that way, but mostly not.  We have a destination so we can leave anytime we feel like it.  For instance our unofficial leader is departing tomorrow morning about 6am.  DH and I will probably get out somewhere between 8 and 10am.  Lethbridge isn't that far away.

That's Dennis, our unofficial leader, talking to Jon (my DH).  We had just finished putting a bug screen on the front of the truck to protect the radiator from insects and small rocks.  It's the same one we use during Love bug season in Texas so we know it works.

Sue,

Your message about arriving in Tok on the 13th excites me even more.  June 13th is my birthday and Alaska is were I was born, so I'll consider your pictures that day a terrific birthday present.

Sue, I am so enjoying your "trip" and photos. I love hearing about Montana. My sis & hubby  lived in Great Falls while with the Air Force, for many years, so I was there often. I was in several places, but the closest to your travels was Helena. The Gallatin Canyon is gorgeous, have been there many times. Can hardly wait for Canada and Alaska!

Hi Ladies,

Finally got  a WiFi connection but it is slow, so I am going to direct you to the blog I have about this trip.

Here I'll just say that we have been having a great time, I love reading your comments, keep them up.  Not sure when I'll have a connection again.

Hi Y'all,

Just pulled into Dawson Creek, they have great WiFi so I will be bringing things up to date later today.  Very strong head wind today going from Hythe, Alb into Dawson Creek.  DH and I are going to have some lunch then go into town for some much needed groceries and slippers (we left ours at home, DUH!).  Check in later to see some of the more than 100 photos we've taken.
