July 19 Drive to Fort St James

We pack up and drive
the last 280km to Fort St James.

We checked out the river and campsites along the way and met Peter Rodseth from Vanderhoof who has done route many times and is joining us for the first part of our journey. He was essential with his knowledge of the river and his many friends who assisted us along the way.

We slept in the old fort buildings but not until after enjoying a wonderful dinner and film of the 1989 Simon Fraser reenactment.
