Motorhome Polishing, Being Tourists and A Spaghetti Feed

Don and I started using Dri-Wash on the motorhome yesterday, and only got about 1/3 of it done. Today we took advantage of good weather to complete the job. He used his Little Giant Ladder that I got him last Christmas, and I helped make sure it was on level ground so he was (relatively) safe.


He does the high parts, and I do the low ones. This product is easy to use, and it removes water spots left by many commercial washes such as the one we used yesterday. It also puts a protective coating on the exterior, making it easier to clean dust and bugs off. It helps rain clear easier on the windshield while driving, too. We were tired when we finished, but we managed to get a coat on Carrie the car, too, before we had to quit. Everything looks better now.

After cleaning up, eating lunch and resting a bit, we went to the Dawson Creek Visitor Centre. It’s housed in the original 1931 Northern Alberta Railway (NAR) Station, along with a museum.


We watched a lengthy video about the building of the Alaska Highway.


I started cooking country style pork ribs and Italian sausage meatballs in the crockpot last night. This morning, I took out the grease, fat and bones and added diced tomatoes, tomato paste, mushrooms, onion, garlic and spices to make the sauce. Others in our group cooked two kinds of pasta: whole wheat spaghetti and angel hair, and provided salad, garlic bread and desserts. We had a feast!


The wind died down and the sun was out, so we enjoyed beautiful weather.


Our happy group has filled out now, with the last couple Claudette and Jean Fradette joining us today (far right). Sorry, I’ll get a better picture of them later.


We have one more day in Dawson Creek before departing on Monday. There’s something special planned for tomorrow, and I can’t wait to experience it and then tell you about it!


  1. Your weather up in Dawson Creek looks much better than ours down here. What gives?

    Great looking dinner in the crockpot!

  2. Yeah, the crockpot meal looks and sounds delish! Suzy loves her slow cooker, and I love the stuff that comes out of it. And I love her too, even when she doesn't use the slow cooker.


Please tell me what you think, either here, on Facebook, or by email. I *love* comments!
