After reaching Cache Creek, we decided to go awhile longer, following Highway 97. By the time we reached 100 Mile House, a city of about two thousand, we were ready to call it a day. Doug suggested that we get a room in a Super 8 for the night.
After we checked into the hotel and were on our way to a restaurant for supper, we saw our chatty neighbors from the RV Park in Hope, BC...the ones that like Nascar but not Jeff Gordon. Their RV had broken down, and they were sitting beside it in front of a Ford dealership. Fortunately, they were within striking distance of their destination and were waiting for a family member to come and pick them up.
It had been a hot day, and the air conditioning was out of order in the restaurant where we went for supper. That wasn't fun.
Later, we went to a local laundromat, making use of those loonies and toonies and that two dollar cup of detergent, sold to us on our first night in Canada by the price-gouging campground manager at the Riviera Campground in Grand Forks, BC. When we came out of the laundromat, the temperature had dropped considerably. Doug actually thought it was cool enough for a jacket. I was just grateful for the absence of the heat.
