In 2012, I rode I-90 across from MI to WA and then back via Canada. Wanted to do that on a BMW for nearly 40 years and it was great.
I am thinking of doing this again this year. A friend lives on Vancouver Island, and we are not getting younger.
I could do I-90 again, visit Mt Rushmore and thereabouts again for example, or try a different route. Seems a more northern route across Hwy 2 might be interesting. When south of BC, I could head north and see some of southern BC.
A small sampling of Hwy 2 using Google Streets showed mostly a two-lane road with nice scenery. I am concerned about gas, motels, etc. and:
- Is June too cold for camping? I'm assuming so, and then motels become important.
- Are there fuel and food and restroom stops available? Let's not minimize the need for the restrooms...
- What sort of speed limits would apply?
- How about road condition? Good pavement? potholes? gravel?
So, my American friends, can you give this Canadian some answers? Thanks in advance.
