This Friday I'll be heading up to BC (from L.A.) for a two week road trip. I'll be landing in Vancouver Friday afternoon, doing a bit of pre-drive shopping (MES, Whole Foods, ?), and heading out bright and early Saturday in order to meet the Sunday morning Port Hardy/Prince Rupert ferry. From there it's 8-10 days up the Stewart-Cassiar Highway (37) to Upper Laird (or Whitehorse - time permitting), then down the Alaska Highway, through the parks, and back for a day or two in Vancouver.
My research tells me that my food choices are pretty limited once I leave Prince Rupert. I'm prepared to eat a lot of cheese and kipper sandwiches, but I was hoping y'all might have some some advise/experiances/must sees/must eats/exhaust manifold or tailgate recipes to share. I'll eat just about anything, and (since I'll be eating out of a cooler most of the time) budget isn't a huge worry.
Also, where can I buy a cheap cooler in Vancouver?
