day 2 – 3. July 2017

The takeover of the motorhome

In the hotel we first treat ourselves to a comfortable breakfast. Then we call CanaDream and ask for the PickUp time. At 9:30 the CanaDream shuttle arrives in front of the hotel. After about thirty minutes we arrive at CanaDream. After a short “hello” a lady is assigned to us for the completion of the formalities. All formalities are explained to us in German. Since we had already completed a large part of the formalities from home via online check-in, we can do this quite quickly. We decided to book a Premium add-on Package for CAD $ 150,00. This includes the toilet chemicals for the whole trip, a complete final cleaning including all tanks and much more. After all this is done and the deposit of CAD $ 750,00 CAD is left, we go to the RV. We get an almost new motorhome; the odometer shows only about 9000 kilometers. The briefing is then done by another very friendly woman, also in German. The whole thing takes about 45-60 minutes. Afterwards still a very exact common investigation of the RVs follows on possibly existing damage from inside and outside. Every little defect is noted down. After all questions have been clarified, we unpack our suitcases and we are ready to leave CanaDream. Around 12:00 o’clock we roll finally from the yard.

First of all on the Trans-Canada Highway 1 to Chilliwack. The size of the vehicle is a bit unfamiliar, but you get along quite well with it. Here we refuel first of all our gas and in the Chilliwack Mall our first purchases are made. Since we don’t get everything on the shopping list, we stop a few meters further on a Real Canadian Super Store. Thanks to the big fridge and also the freezer you can also buy some things on stock.

Now we continue on the Trans-Canada Highway. The destination for this day is the Sasquatch Provincial Park. On the way we stop at the Bridal Veil Falls and take a first walk. After that we continue our comfortable ride and enjoy the first impressions of Canada. The route then leads us towards Agasssis and Harrison Hot Spring along Harrison Lake to our campground Lakeside in Sasquatch Provincial Park.

Campground: Lakeside (Deerlake), L38 – CAD $ 23,30
