This blog entry covers cycling from a random campsite to Lake Creek in Canada. The clouds parted, and there was some blue sky!
Is that blue sky I see in Canada?
I woke up in the morning to clear blue skies – hurrah! I put the tent in the sun to dry whilst I had breakfast and then packed up and got underway for my normal time of 10.00 am. Nothing I do seems to make me any earlier! I wasn't sure of the name of the campsite I stayed at, but it had served its purpose!
Flat tyre issues
For the third morning running I had a flat tyre, and although its obviously a slow puncture, I couldn't be quite arsed to change the inner tube. I'll suppose I'll have to at the point that it becomes a real nuisance, but for the time being I have a bet with myself that I can nurse it into Whitehorse.
Heading to Lake Creek
Today's destination was another state run campground at Lake Creek, with a stop off at White River RV Park to pick up some supplies. 2 kms from the RV park, I came across a sign which said closed for the season. Bugger.
I was desperately low on supplies, and so the next few km's I was absorbed with how I was going to make my food last. Suddenly, from nowhere, a service station not marked on any of my maps appeared. As well as having a fine selection of rocks (very random) from the surrounding area, they also had some basics, so I loaded up, and was much happier, although $13.75 lighter.
Tragically over budget once more. The day's cycling was pretty easy, and at last I could see the countryside I was cycling through, which was great. I reached Lake Creek mid afternoon, and opted for the not paying at all options – which worked just fine.
