Prince George, BC in June: Bring bug spray!
Traveling with an RV is a wonderful experience that allows for flexibility and the opportunity to explore new places. In June, we had the chance to travel with our RV from Hope, BC to Prince George, BC. Prince George is known as BC's Northern Capital and it is a beautiful city surrounded by nature.
Before heading out on the trip, Jay had to pack up our Starlink. He was hoping it would fit in a little carry-on suitcase, but it was too long. So, he used the original starlink box and found a nice space to store it in the outdoor kitchen where our mini fridge used to be. After packing everything up, he set off to pick me up from work.
As we traveled through Merritt, we stopped to get some delicious baked goods and bannock from our favorite spot. We continued our journey north towards Prince George, stopping for our first night at Tunkwa Provincial Park.
The next morning we left early to continue the journey to Prince Goerge. Upon arriving at MamaYeh campground in Prince George, we were quick to notice the mosquito situation. Mosquitoes were everywhere, and we had forgotten to bring bug spray. So, we had to quickly buy some deet-free bug spray.
Despite the mosquitoes, Prince George is a wonderful place to visit in June. The weather was lovely, with temperatures in the low-20s Celsius, and we had plenty of time to spend with friends and explore the area. We also had the chance to check out the top things to see and do in Prince George, which we will share in a future video.
In conclusion, traveling with an RV to Prince George in June was an exceptional experience. Even with the mosquito situation, the beauty of the city and surrounding nature made the trip worthwhile. If you're planning an RV trip to northern BC, I highly recommend considering Prince George as a destination.
