Last night I said goodbye to (almost) everyone I met in Revy. It an awesome night with awesome friends but it ended in a LOT of tears!
I was all packed and ready so I left pretty well on time this morning. The beginning of my drive went well, until I got to Kamloops and couldn’t find the mall for the LIFE of me. I somehow ended up on the North Shore and stopped for directions. Even after the clerk at the gas station literally marked out my route on a map, I still got lost, so after 45 minutes of driving around Kamloops (the time I’d allotted for shopping) I gave up and tried to find my way out. I stopped to ask how to get out of town, and wouldn’t you know it, I get lost again. I see highway west signs so I followed those thinking I would hook up with highway 5, there were a lot of farms and 20 minutes later when I passed a town called Cherryville or something, I started to freak out so I called my mother crying my eyes out wondering where the hell I was, I was seeing signs for Cache Creek and Ashcroft and I was so confused and angry! Turns out I’m on highway 1.. Mom said I could of turned around but I really didn’t want to backtrack so I kept going. She’s like “You’re on holidays, enjoy the drive!“
Right…The scenery was different than the Coquihalla so that was good, but I followed a lot of motor homes from the States in parts I couldn’t pass going 40-50 km in 90-100 zones which definitely slowed me down! Once I got to Hope and saw the familiar roads I felt a lot better. Made it in plenty of time for the five ferry despite my little side-trip, but it was booked full! That really put me over the edge! Anyways I’m on the seven ferry now and on my way home for a week of relaxation. Only 9 days to go!!
