    Day Two
    Today's stage started with a long 14 km climb and we settled into the back of our wave until we hit some new single track. We climbed 500m of elevation but hit a backlog straight away. Luckily we were able to get around them and began another technical decent with slippery rock faces this time. Our hands hurt with the long technical decent and we got a short respite before the Enduro downhill. Once ...

    ... and axe displays, several relocatable timber cutting camp houses, logging trucks and log loaders, winches, donkey engines, circular saws, blacksmiths workshop and of course a 3’ gauge railway in a figure 8 around the site.

    The site also encompasses a section of old growth forest and there are some walks through the forest with interpretative signage of the various trees. One tree still growing strong was approximately 300 years old and had enough wood to completely ...

He referred mainly to the one we were looking at (as it was the cheapest) that it was only good for a few months as a run around, which was fine but they had it up for $2000! So we left there and walked on down to the next place which had a very nice Dodge Caravan with 215,000ks (we'd know ...

    Thursday was a 45 minute trip to Mt Washington, Strathcona Park once we had ferried across from Denman. This mountain has a myriad of ski runs where poeple from the Island flock to come winter.

As a consequence as we walked a track that climbed steadily between cedar and douglas fir trees we inevitably ran into snow drifts! Being summer and ...

    ... I was a little bit concerned about sea-sickness but it wasn't a problem at all. We did see humpback whales, including a mother and calf. It was interesting to see the 'footprint' whales leave in the water, they leave behind disturbed water which stays visible for several minutes. Every now and then we would drift through a bit of air which a whale had exhaled, it smelled bad, but I guess Listerine isn't a big ...
