7 - Valleyview, AB

This is the end of week one of this RV trip. The A/C on the RV is now running and the thermometer on the truck hit 78°F this afternoon. It took us a while to get on the road this morning as we needed to stop for fuel, food and propane. Diesel prices are starting to come down. It was $1.369/l in Fort St. John. Quite a changed from $1.659/l a few days ago. We are now out of the mountains and rolling through flat farmland. We rolled through Dawson Creek and Bridget wanted to stop and get a picture. The weather looks ominous but the road ran to the south of the storm. There was a ton of road construction with long lines of cars. The number of vehicles on the road is at least a couple orders of magnitude more than there were earlier in the week.

We are at yet another RV park. I must admit that they are convenient. And have been averaging $40 CAN or $30 US. Actually, pretty reasonable. We are at Sherk’s RV Park in Valleyview, AB. It is a really nice independent park with decent WiFi at least as long as you aren’t interested in streaming video. Blog updates, email and casual web surfing all work fine.

$30 for full hookups is a good deal.

It is a reasonable price and most of them give you 10% off with a Good Sam’s membership. On our way out of Alaska, the place in Delta was way overpriced at $45 US! And no discount.

The price for a full hook-up seems similar to the cost in Germany and Austria, Richard, however in Switzerland you got to add at least another 10 bucks, while the Eastern European countries are much cheaper. On our last trip I liked camping on a farm (equivalent to Harvest Hosts), where you get hookup and facilities for free or basically in return for shopping there.

We really enjoy the farm/museum camping but since we don’t have cell service in Canada, it makes arranging more difficult. We would actually have to plan.

Wow, temps, fuel, and RV site prices are refreshingly low! Despite our coming here to the Rocky mountains for low temps, we have been seeing unseasonably warm temps. We're hoping it's a phase and things will get cooler, but not counting on it. The humidity is still low, so we have that...
