Wash day in Prince Rupert at the Inn on the Harbour Hotel and prepare to head to Vancouver Island at 4 AM tomorrow morning.

Inn on the Harbour Prince Rupert. BC

I only slept about 5 hours on Thursday night at Meziadin Lake when I rode there from Stewart, BC.

I only slept about 3 hours on and off on Friday night at the Hwy 34 pullout ON THE GROUND! (I actually sat in the recently cleaned Poly-John [pink] Port-a-Potty for a number of hours trying to stretch my back and avoid the hordes of ravenous mosquitoes).

And last night, Saturday, at the Harbour Inn Hotel I was awake every hour from midnight to 6 AM with serious back issues because of the too-soft mattress and too-fluffy pillows (finally solved by ditching the pillow and sleeping on a folded bath towel).

Needless to say, I am VERY TIRED today, Sunday.

The ferry from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy, Vancouver Island leaves on Monday at 7:30 AM, and I need to be at the terminal 2 hours before departure.

Since I probably won’t have much opportunity to sleep well on the ferry, I am really hoping that I can get a very good rest tonight in the hammock at the RV Park. (It was nice to be in the hammock out of the rain, but I still didn’t get very much sleep.)

There weren’t any trees in the tenting area and it started raining at 4 PM, so I just hung out in the covered group area until morning.

Maybe I will need to wait until I get to Vancouver Island to finally get some real rest…
