  1. you have worked very hard on this project. Could you direct me to the resources to help me find gluten friendly eating in williams lake and 100 mile house. My son is going to barkerville and these places are stops . thankyou kindly, Doreen

    • Our coverage area doesn’t extend past the Shuswap Doreen, but the website offers a good list of Celiac friendly spots across Canada for travelers to consider. Unfortunately, many small towns don’t have the same awareness and/or market to offer gluten-free choices

      From personal experience, we have found that we have to stock up and be self sufficient for long road trips.

      Best wishes to him!
