      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 ...

      We left Nanaimo on an overcasted sunday afternoon. Our next goal: Pacific Rim National Park, notorious for its beautiful forests, beaches and shores. After a short stop at the highway to get a fishing license, the sky would eventually clear up and so it became a nice sunny late summer day. After about one hour of driving we reached Cathedral Grove at Emerald Lake, a place certainly worth stopping. We really liked the dark forest, the ...

      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. Their "winter" ran almost into summer as this year they were still skiing at the end of June. 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 ...

      ... to watch the sunset. The actual sunset was behind me but the sky in front of me was rather nice too. I like Nanaimo, it is a pleasant place. There are a few marinas here, lots of boats. The main difference between the marinas here and those in Prince Rupert and Alaska, is that here the boats are for pleasure, not work.

      On Sunday morning I got a bus to Ucluelet, a small coastal town on the West ...

      Vancouver Island Final Camping Tour - Part 1

      For the past five years we've camped at Comox Lake for a couple of days the first week of July, so it was only fitting that we scheduled in a trip before our long drive across Canada to Halifax, to say farewell.

      The weather co-operated, providing perfect kayaking and camping weather. My youngest son, Colt, and his friend, Ira, led me on a power hike up ...
