Back from vacation in the wagon...
« on: July 17, 2011, 09:59:34 AM »

Well we got home last night from a 1800 kms (1125 miles) trek in the ol' wagon.  

We have been using the wagon for our family vacations for the past 4 years, since I got it on the road.  The car always performs flawlessly, with some small issues, but never anything to hinder our trip.

This year we were gone for a 8 days, and visited family in Prince George BC, then on the way back down we had the use of a friends cabin at Horsefly lake.  

Here are a few pics....

Stopped at The Bear Claw lodge in Cache Creek BC....





Then some eats in Williams lake BC...Me and my daughters.



Gotta love the big tailgate for sittin' and munchin'...  :p

Then on the way back out at the cabin at Horse Fly Lake....



It rained most of the time we were out, and we didn't even need to use the A/C in the wagon once!!  Actually we had to turn the heat on one time though.  This is the coolest July I can ever remember here in BC...But I love it since I'm not a heat lover.

Any way just wanted to share.

Now I see why you take the wagon.  Next you'll be putting a cap on the truck.

Well I'll probably be pulling a travel trailer in a couple years with the crewcab when we go on vacation.  Might need a canopy then.

I love that you take that wagon on vacation. I am looking forward to being able to do that with mine. My greatest childhood memories include vacations in our '69 Polara wagon. That '68 looks to be in great shape.

That sure is some gorgeous country! We've done a lot of camping in
Montana and Wyoming but it'd sure be great like to explore up North of
the Border in Alberta, Saskatchewan (sp?) and BC sometime.

Shudder.....I have very little love for full wheel covers.  I'm a steel wheels and dog dish caps lover...as you can tell. :)
