Day 98 Sun, Sep 9, 2007 Fort St. John B.C. to Valleyview, Alberta

We finally made it to Alberta—another Province down. Except for one deer in the road the only animals we saw today were on people’s farms—sheep and horses. The campground, named Sherk’s, was one of the nicest we’ve stayed in just because it had grass between the spaces. And the spaces were large. But no WiFi or TV. Jerry’s leg was really hurting so after getting set up and helping me carry the sheets to the laundry room, he called it quits for the day. We got him down with his leg elevated and as soon as I got his bed remade he crawled in without even eating anything. His leg is peeling like from a sunburn and I’d love to get my hands on it—I peeled my own dead skin when I was stupid and got sunburned as a kid. But this is worse that a sunburn and the most he’ll let me do is gently put lotion on it. We think his leg is getting worse again and as much as we love Canada, we desperately want to get to the States so Jerry can see a doctor and our insurance will pay up front.

The weather was partly cloudy and temps around 71. Low in mid 50’s.
