Every one slept in this morning after the long night of driving into the early morning hours.
We got up and thought we would go and get the tire fixed while everyone else was eating and getting ready.
We went to gas up first. Gas was $1.30 a liter. It took 34.8 liters to fill our car costing $45.56 Canadian. David asked where to get a tire fixed and they sent us to Tire Craft.
We pulled up to Tire Craft and David went to see if they could take care of us. They told us it would be about 45 minutes to an hour but we were out of there in 30 minutes. They found something stuck in the tire about the size of a dime. No wonder the seal a leak didn’t work. Well so much for that tire. We got a used one from them and got it mounted and balanced. We drove away happy campers because the whole thing only cost us $70 or about $53 US. Not bad I would say.
When we were done we went back to the hotel to wait for the rest of them. We saw Jim messing with his tire. He had a flat now. We sent him to Tire Craft.
We finally left the hotel about 12:30. The rest of the party gassed up while we went to check on Jim. He ran over a sharp rock, so he could get his patched.
Dan had a code he wanted to check on that had come up on the truck. We told him where we had seen a NAPA. They sent him somewhere else to have it checked. Heather sent us to go get lunch from the A & W. The truck was fine and off we went.
It was a very uneventful day. I played with taking photos of the sunset in our wing mirror. We have noticed that it is always setting behind us now.
We got to the Fort St John Econo Lodge and once we were settled in we went to the Italian restaurant that was at the hotel. It was called il Lago and it was so good. The service was great. The cook, who I believe was the owner, came out when he saw the girls and said he was making something special for them. The food was the best. Their motto is “come as friends and leave as family”. I totally agree with this statement.
If you are ever in the area be sure to stop by.
Thanks for stopping by.

Fix a Flat can save the day but not always.
