Last Minute Road Trip Survival Tips As A Mom

Our average road trip length is six to seven hours, and usually several times per year to visit family or close friends. I keep certain things in my truck 24/7 because you never know when you will need them. My husband often complains about the amount of stuff under the backseat, but if I removeContinue reading “Last Minute Road Trip Survival Tips As A Mom”

Britton Creek Rest Area

Located 67 kilometres South of Merritt, this rest area is always a favorite stop when traveling Highway 5 with our kids! There are marmots running around the grass and being so cute to entertain you, as well as flush toilets, a concession truck with snacks, hot coffee, cold drinks, and Telus WiFi. WiFi isn’t normallyContinue reading “Britton Creek Rest Area”

Chilliwack to Quesnel!

My husband called and said he got off from work early, let’s leave for our road trip a day early! We arranged for our friend to look after our animals, packed a few things, and hit the road. 3 Days, 1300kms, and a whole lot of fun! We laughed a lot, and memories were made.Continue reading “Chilliwack to Quesnel!”

Solo Sunday at the River

Sometimes adventures don’t have to be planned, or very long. This unplanned Sunday drive brought me to Gill road in Chilliwack and was just the reset I needed. So many beautiful views!

Fall Solo Drive – Likely the Last One for Awhile!

Bench FSR is one of my favourite drives, but in the Fall with the leaves changing colours it is even more beautiful.
I love the views along this drive and honestly come up here whenever I can.

Fitting Adventures in Amongst Errands

I am a busy Mom of two kids, so I fit the adventure in when I can.
Even if it’s just 20 minutes to sit by the lake before I have to head back home, it’s worth it to me to have that reset and recharge.

Solo Adventure to Find the Mt. Woodside Gliders Launch Site

Mount Woodside is another one of my favourite drives!
I was lucky enough to get the launch pad all to myself with my fur baby and sat in silence enjoying the views, which are quite breathtaking.
The forestry road is pretty beat up, so airing down is always a good idea.

Twenty Mile Bay – April Version!!

20 Mile Bay is a gorgeous Recreation Site that has camping and a day use area that sits right on Harrison Lake.
It’s a long drive full of beautiful views and one I highly recommend. The forestry road is a bumpy one, but I have seen all sorts of trailers hauled down that road.

Serenity at Skwellepil Rec Site

Skwellepil Creek Rec Site is a beautiful spot managed by the 4WDABC.
There are two areas to camp in, up in the forest area, or down by the boat launch.
It is often busy, but the majority of campers respect the rules and each other and it stays pretty quiet.
