Best beer ever is "Dark Matter" from Hoyne Brewing a small micro brewer in Victoria. You can buy it direct from the brewer; $6 for a 650 ml bottle or you can refill your Growler for $11. You can taste the beers at their brewery which is located right on the edge of downtown Victoria and quite frankly they are all excellent.

It is also available in select locations in the Lower Mainland.

If you like dark beers the Bushwacker beer from the Barley Station brew pub in Salmon Arm is fantastic, oh ya the foods good too...

I do appreciate the beer advice for this trip. Thank you. However, I'm not a beer snob by any means. Typically I drink the cheapest light beer that I can find. Natural Light, typically. Maybe Keystone. Sorry to disappoint.
Now, back to the topic. Any suggestions for overnighting spots?

Cheapest I could find is $7.99 for six cans. Several brands at that price point.

Sorry ikg907. I'm sure someone will assist. Us Canucks seem to like our beer and have lots of opinions. I hope someone actually helps you with your real question (sorry to be a distraction)

ikg907 this is the website I like when travelling, you can search by area and in some cases even see photos of the campground.

CampScout - Camping, Campgrounds & RV Parks

As for stopping at rest areas along that route you won't get any piece and quiet due to traffic noise.

Cheers
Doug

Or Google 100 Mile House camping:

Camping | 100 Mile House, BC | Destination BC - Official Site

Also, useful to Google Chambers of Commerce, where you will usually find info on municipal campgrounds.

OK. Here's my take on the situation. #3 to Princeton. #5A to Merritt. #5 to Kamloops. #1 to 97 all the way to 100 mile.
Possibly take #8 from Merritt. then go #1 on up to #97.
Any thoughts on the 2 options
My thanks in advance.

#8 from Merritt to Spences Bridge is a slow and winding road. Doesn't stop me from taking it though. There is the Log Cabin bar in Spences Bridge ( motor cycle memorabilia ) but the town no longer supports even one gas station, so fill up in Merritt.
I'd use Google maps to work out the optimum route.

Stop at a duty free as you come across the border and stock up there. Usually pretty good prices and a nice selection. There are lots of unique micro breweries that you can sample and find some very good and some very disappointing beers as well. If you prefer larger commercial ventures that are tried and true, Keith's India Pale Ale is a brew that I have occasionally sampled and found it to be quite adequate....
