Vancouver Island IRV2 members.

Just wondering how many of us live on the rock, Vancouver Island in B.C.?

We live in Cobble Hill, near Shawnigan Lake.

Hi neighbour. I'm up in Nanoose Bay and will still be here tomorrow unless the wind and rain blows us away tonight. Quite a storm. I had some motor work done at a Harley shop in Cobble Hill ten or so years ago.
This is the first motorhome we've had since we move here 20 years ago. Sold the 1978 Establishment class C shortly after we got here as we didn't seem to have the need to get out of town as we live out of town. Found a few good campsites and Rv parks on the island since we bought this one in Duncan last summer.
Cheers
Dave

Heard there was supposed to be a storm! Funny how much difference an hour makes in distance. Was raining well here but has slowed down and no wind here on the mountain yet. Camped a few times at Cowichan Lake, Black Creek, Oyster Creek, Salmon Point, and we have friends in French Creek that have all hook ups for us in their driveway. Do like to go south for the warmer weather when able. Camped starting with tent right thru to MH and love this way of Glamping spent some time working in Nanoose Bay for the gas utility.

Safe travels and maybe run into each other on the rock.

We've stayed at Quatse River Rv in Port Hardy and would recommend it. Buttle Lake and Sayward down town park were ok for dry camping. Pacheedaht in Port Renfrew was real interesting as we were camped with nothing but tents on both sides of us and were getting teased about being spoiled. (All in good humour) Had a huge thunder and lightning storm the first night with high winds and when we got up in the morning everyone was gone. I took a drive in my car last week to check out Lizard and Fairy Lake campgrounds and I think I can fit in Lizard Lake.
I'm on the freedom 75 plan so I have a ways to go before I retire but I do take a lot of time off.
We plan on touring the east coast of Canada over the next few years as we've never been there. We have to stay north of the border as one of our dogs can't tolerate rabies shots.

Appears to have stopped raining this morning but awoke to find out we lost the power for a bit last night. Never got the bad wind at our house and I would prefer this to what they have had back east.

It certainly not the best deal in the land, whether it is on BC Ferries or The Coho to Port Angeles. They are close in costs and now that the dollar has slipped a bit, probably near right on. If you are pulling a toad, it is cheaper with either ferry if you disconnect and drive the toad on. Saved me 80 bucks the last time on BC Ferry. I have been an Islander most all my life and certainly would like to see them either be made part of the highway system or build a bridge, but probably never in my lifetime. Usually once a year, we travel on them with the rig. Make it part of the enjoyment??

If you live on the rock you are in the wrong province....

Just as beautiful however!
