Here I am in Ft. Nelson, BC. I came up here to visit my Hunny and pick up the trailer that he is making for us so we can take more than our kids on vacation with us. You know things like a tent, cook stove and food. Nothing major, just essential. When I bought the van I wasn't thinking about going places and so I bought a Caravan rather than a Grand Caravan. It's amazing what you can't do without the Grand. So on the way up here I stopped to visit Aunty Sheesh for the night. The kids wondered at her name, asked if she was angry all the time. Sheesh! I said whatever gave you that idea! It isn't the greatest idea to stay up late taking to old friends before a 4 hour drive through nothing, They really should put a Tim Horton's somewhere between Ft. St. John and Ft. Nelson. I bought myself arguable the worst cup of coffee in Pink Mountain. Where is Pink Mtn? Well, kinda nowhere. It was suffer though a horrid coffee or risk the lives of my children as I took a brief nap while driving. Yes, Mom, I was careful! We arrive safe and sound. We are staying at some one's empty house in a beautiful location. There is a beautiful view and peace and quiet. Something we don't get to enjoy in Prince George. Oh, and the air is fresh. There are horses that Adriana is thrilled with and we are still hoping to get to go riding. She drops hints every day. When we arrived, Jonathan got pretty sick and was sick for the next 24 hours or so. He got better and then it was Jamison's turn. He is still recovering and I'm waiting for the next one! As a result, my sister doesn't necessarily want us to come visit her. Not that I blame her. It looks like I'm not leaving here until Saturday. If I go crazy and the trailer is done I might leave. If I wait until Saturday, Paul can come home with me and I won't have to drive 10 hours by myself. Despite it's isolation or maybe because of it, I am relaxing and don't seem to be in any rush to return to my home in the middle of a stinky city. It's a tough call, well not really. I need to deck of cards and the kids need their bikes and we'd be set for awhile. Don't worry Barbara, we will be home soon. And no, we still aren't moving, at least for the winter...

You better be coming home. I don't want your cat forever. Hopefully the kids are all feeling better soon. Miss you.

Hey! Why are you gone? Why would you want to leave PG anyway?

Are you still going camping next week at Robson? We survived our road trip to Atlin...nothing like camp-coffee to keep you awake on the Cassiar Hwy.

Drop me a line when you can. Post some pictures, too, would ya!
