Already three days since my last blog. Three days of driving on through the huge landscape of Yukon and British Columbia. Cruising smoothly (yes, that’s even with my off-road used DRZ400) on the highway 37 towards Prince Rupert. Again I saw breathtaking, beautiful spots and now even some wild animals: 2 mooses, 2 buffalos, 1 white-tailed sea eagle, uncountable sand squirrels and red squirrels, and even 1 bear un-hasty crossing the street. So the days are just going by in an already "regular“ way. I get used to that way of living and feel really good with it.
The most funny thing about the last few days? The Canadian official camp grounds: mostly no water (and so of course no showers), no electricity, no WiFi/telephone-availability. But in every campsite a table and bench and a fireplace made out of a metal barrel with integrated grill!
So I tried out my fire-making skills and hey, I got a really nice fire, lasting for some hours and feel so cosy (still in the middle of bear-homeland). The bigger problem was to buy some food for me. All the stores just have food in XXL-amounts. And because of the bears you should not leave any food overnight ( and I do not have a car to close it in) I made quite a funny mix of food: some baked potatoes, 1 pack of Salami, 1 cream cheese and 1 pack of tortillas (they are really great roasted on the grill). What sounds a bit weird turned out to be a tasty dinner: Tortilla Wraps 'a la Judy', going together with a nice and hot Earl Grey tea…. After that I slept like a baby and did not worry about any bears hanging around my tent!
