    Have wifi in the Corner Cafe in Creston, WA. Another big breakfast. Looks like a great chance of no signal going forward.

    Talked with Tara at the Verizon store here and she says her resources show good coverage. But you can call *611 and talk to tech, might be the tower is down or something.

    This man brings his old dog to chase a stick in the water, it is a eddy they use for a beach. Dog would walk into the water, get the stick walk out slowly, slowly. Then he started up the hill to the pickup.

    A boat. With a wheel? Interesting. Burgers look tasty!

    Sam is to say the least a character. The boat rides in his van, so the wheel is to move it about.

    Met a musician from Colorado at the gas pumps in Oroville, WA; the last town before the border. His name is Moe Dixon and I think he may be more well known than he is letting on. He has been on the cover of the BMW Owners News magazine. We are sharing an expensive campsite at he NK'MIP RV (inca meep) park in Osoyoos, BC.

    We gassed up and had a good (big) burger in Hope. The downtown has a lot of chainsaw art.

    Those of us who live in BC know that when you are in the Fraser Canyon you are "Beyond Hope". Great pictures. Osoyoos, so close (about 6 hours away).

    Loren; as always great pics and comments. Looks like you are having a great trip. Too bad Augie couldn't make it as well. Keep the pics coming.
