Jess and Robs life up in smoke

Rob and Jess arrived in BC from England last October to do some skiing and travelling and ended up being trapped by the pandemic. They stayed in Revelstoke working in traffic control and waiting for the chance to start their trip of of a lifetime.  This was a tour of the great outdoors with their paddle boards, dirt bikes and boat and they were living out of their van  Having been on the road for less than a month they stopped to get their van fixed at the local Big O tire.  While they were waiting for the van to be repaired a fire consumed everything they had. This included their travel cash , clothing, fishing gear, camping gear, dirt bike gear, laptop, cameras , and irreplaceable photos.  They were left in the parking lot devastated by their loss with only the clothes on their back.
