The Vancouver Island Hiway should be fun although lots of it is now freeway and of course the ferry will be super esp. if the weather is clear... Aug September is the best chance for weather. I'll be on the Queen Charlottes Aug 29 to Sept 2 fishing... wave as you go by.
From Dawson Creek to Prince George to Jasper is just less than 800 km. Dawson Creek Grande Prairie to Jasper is 535 km. The ride through PG is better overall for scenery especially from Tete Jaune Cache to Jasper... really an extension of the Parkway to Banff... esp Mount Robson... the highest peak in AB.
In the Grand babies dept the daughter is the only contributor so far. The Married son will likely have to borrow children... no luck in 5 years. The youngest 26 is still seeding.
Again Sept can be cool in the mountains but a lot less RVs... not that the GTs need to worry about them much... accommodations can be jammed.
I was hard on bikes... rode every day and had a great mentor. He rode ISDT in Europe and at Berkshire in michigan, when they held the world's there... 1973 I think.
I cook a better steak than Ruth's Chris or Morton's... its probably the AAA Alberta barley fed I use vs the USDA Prime corn fed if you happen to be in the area.
Watch the crap in life disappear in the mirror.
Remember how much you like being alive.
Ride to protect and entertain the child in you.
