Thank you for the reply, Checkmate!
A long shot, but do we have any Vancouver members that would be interested in putting me up for one night on June 2nd?
Sorry! I can't help you out. To far away being in Winnipeg.
Maybe make a post in "Bushcraft Chatter" or go over to "Bushcraft USA Forum" an post it there also.
Good idea! I will post it up
You should post something to the Bushcraft USA forum. There are a lot of members on that site that live in Britsh Columbia.
Before I signed up for this trip, I would only come to the Bushcraft UK site once a month or so. Now I'm over here daily reading and posting.
Best to ask for someone living in the British Columbia"mainland" = aka the lower Fraser river delta region.
I'm in BC and yet , it's a 9+ hr hard drive to Vancouver.
Outside of Surrey, even as close as Chilliwack, is a very intense drive into YVR.
Hey! Fellow Canuck,
Good point. ValeTudoGuy should just ask look for bushcrafters in the Vancouver area.
Were you able to get out in a canoe this past weekend? Or is this something you'd like to do in your area later this year?
I wasnt, due to work and not currently owning a canoe.
I do get out sometimes as my friend owns a couple of inflatables. I do plan on buying a sit on later this year to get out on in the lake district and my local Crook 'o' lune area.
In the next couple of years when my kids get older. This is the canoe I really want to purchase!
Here is a video of Lars Monsen using one to cross northern Canada with it.
With this canoe you don't need a large storage area and you can throw it in your boot to transport it. Also at only 25.4 kg, I can single carry this canoe over most portages.
It's almost time for you to jump on the plane heading for the Yukon. Enjoy yourself, next week at the bushcraft course. I'll see you on June 10th.
Yes its very close! I have unfortunately got to work until 10pm the night before I travel.. So my first couple days I think is going to be exhausting, especially spending 20hrs in Vancouver airport. Lol
Im excited though, see you soon!
Ask about the SkyTrain to get away from YVR. It's cheap to get to the ocean/Waterfront station.
There's a big collection of jade and soapstone carvings in there.
You might want to check out the C & N Backpackers Hostel.
The price is $ 29.00 Canadian per night. That's 16.82 pounds per night not a bad deal.
At least you can get a little rest while you're laying over in Vancouver.
Here are a few more places on Hotels.com
Thank you, the hostel looks just the ticket.
You might not get to talk bushcraft. Though if there are any backpackers there can always talk about that.
Have a good trip over! See you in just over a week.
It's real now!
Enjoy it, loads of pictures please
I guess I finished the outhouse last night...just in time...
ValeTudoGuy: the Northshore mountains in Vancouver are a key geographic feature in pictures of YVR.
At least buy a bunch of postcards.
The one with the stripe down the front is Grouse Mountain. That's a ski run which is lit up at night.
With a clear sky, you can see all of YVR spread out below you and the night glow from Seattle.
