Gary want to say he wanted to get out. He enjoys the BC area he lives in.
Every part of his and my liked portions of Western Canada is what we like to see.
There is areas of the US that I do not care fore but like to see it.
Don't condemn others to enjoy just getting out!

Almost time...we are going to take off for a month long BC wander come Sept 15th. Probably drift thru highway 20 to Bella Coola, come back same way and Wells Grey Park, find some wild hot springs, watch trains in the Fraser Canyon. Spend a few days in Vancouver.

Can't say I ani't ready.

Done most of that, just not Bella Coola. Road scares me a bit [emoticon]

Oh, and I doubt I'd ever try towing in Vancouver unless I had no choice. Can't even stand driving down there [emoticon]

Yeah..I don't know that I'd go touring around Vancouver, either, if I had a tow behind.

I am on an Off-Road Camping BC FB page and was laying out the plans. Someone reminded me that Bella Coola has been closed to outsiders. I sent off an E to the band office requesting a permit..and hey presto....Neat stuff.

We're down here and would like to tour north of the border but that has to wait. Close to us, though, is Glacier National Park, an option but WOW. Here's a pic of the Logan Pass parking lot a while ago. I actually see an open parking spot!

We could drive our truck camper over the pass from the West but continue to St. Mary where we'd have to turn back (at last report) because the Blackfeet Tribe has closed the Blackfeet Indian Reservation to recreation because of the virus. Good for them.

The Blackfeet official website has a section described as "Prevent the spread on the Rez." Again, good for them.

Typically (on average?), Logan Pass closes for the winter around the 3rd Monday of October but anything goes. It can close temporarily but then reopen. That can happen a couple times until they throw in the towel and close it for the winter.

By a long shot, this is the most spectacular road trip I have ever taken. St Mary to Lake MacDonald for a weekend, then back over the pass on my brother's bike. On the outside. An unforgettable ride.

It has ben many years, but returning is still on my bucket list.

Sorry to hijack your thread, Gary. I couldn't resist making a comment.

I'm envious. We went to Canada back in 2005, I think. Did the Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, Well Gray Provincial Park, Kamloops, and Revelstoke and everything in between and still didn't see enough. Have not been able to make it back.


We share a similar sentiment, just that ours is about Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico...our winter haunts. Instead, this coming winter will see us wandering BC...probably over to Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. We'll probably have to do it bits n pieces. I don't quite see us out for 2/3 months at a stretch. But..a couple weeks here..a couple there, we hope is doable.

Vancouver Island seems to be in many people's plans with good reason for sure. We have been bumming around the Island since April with trips home now and then for laundry and maybe a hockey game on a big tv.

Vancouver Island is amazing but don't tell anyone.

Probably spend the winter near Campbell River. Might run into you somewhere.
