The title says it all, folks.
We lost all power about 40km away from Revelstoke, BC. No cell phone reception, of course.
The first car to come into sight pulled over and the driver — a cool dude indeed — took my AMA information and drove into town to call a tow truck for us. The truck was here within an hour.
As I said to my partner last night: This is now officially a legitimate roadtrip.
We spent the night in the van in front of an auto repair shop, 50ft from the loudest train track on earth. Seriously – the shop was right across from the exact area that the locomotives stop, back up, and rumble around with their gargantuan engines.
The issue? The alternator failed. The shop got us in right away and we should be rolling out within the hour. Not too bad!
This is a great place to get stranded – Revelstoke is beautiful, serene and full of awesome people! I’d live here, for sure.
Next stop: The Sea to Sky Retreat Center near Whistler, BC!
