Re: Camping Trip (16-20) & Day Meet (20) March 2009

Postby vanisledeli » Fri Mar 06, 2009 1:14 pm

Pay camping is available at the provincial park near the caves and free is further down the same foresty road that comes out at the inland highway at Cook Creek. I was not able to make it all the way through the last time I was up there, lots of snow! If we get more this weekend I will check it out and see what spots are viable and for how many vans. There is no hassle to camp, its all provincial or tiimber leases and so far nobody cares about camping as long as common sense prevails. ( no tree felling, log theft, fires out of season, poaching etc, all those things frowned upon etc.)

So, I changed the title for you guys...

...it was probably going to be way to cold for camping for the kids anyway (they're not nearly as rugged as we were). And, I've got a bunch of stuff to prepare at work, so I probably wouldn't have made it up there.

A day meet, I could probably do. Delica304, you going up? Wanna convoy? Can two vehicles be called a convoy, or do we need a third?

How about you and Chewy meet at my place for 9h30, and we leave from here.

Luna-Sea: will you show to this meet? If so, I'll be sure to bring your hubs.

Unless the weather does something totally obscene, this sounds like an excellent excuse for a trip to the Island.

I've just reserved a spot on Coastal Renaissance, leaving Horseshoe Bay at 0830.

How are people fixed for radio stuff nowadays? FRS/GMRS? 2 meters? I have both.

Um... Rathtrevor Beach is on the map... just outside Parksville.

All kidding aside, it will be good to finally meet you, Laura. Sounds like things are shaping up to be a good meet. :-D

Instead of a tent, we could just stretch a big tarp between four vans!

Just to let all Mitsubishi drivers on this forum know: this gathering is open to Pajeros and Stradas also. It would be cool to see some of the 'cousins' at this meet. :-)
