Earl the Llama guarding West Harrison

http://www.youtube.com/watch This guy was literally in the middle of the road blocking our way! He eventually moved to the side and we slowly passed him, only for him to start chasing my truck!! Turns out he is a well cared for resident of the logging camp & has a horse friend there too! He justContinue reading “Earl the Llama guarding West Harrison”

Twenty Mile Bay & Beyond

After a great group trip to Ten Mile Bay last week I was feeling more confident about the Sts’ailes FSR (formerly known as West Harrison FSR) road conditions and decided making it to Twenty Mile Bay was a must! With a forecast full of rain and my husband off work for a couple of days,Continue reading “Twenty Mile Bay & Beyond”

Ten Mile Bay with B.C. 4×4 Women Group Trip!

This was my first trip up West Harrison and I wish I would have ventured out here years ago! I met up with a great bunch of ladies from the BC 4×4 Women group (check them out on Facebook!) and caught up to them just as they got to the steep trail to the beachContinue reading “Ten Mile Bay with B.C. 4×4 Women Group Trip!”

Take the Back Roads, Not the Highway

Sometimes I just feel the need to get in my truck and drive. My husband was home today and after a week full of home owner disasters, I felt the need to go for a drive. I texted my husband and made sure he didn’t have plans, then texted my friend to see if sheContinue reading “Take the Back Roads, Not the Highway”

Alexandra Bridge

Just outside of Yale is a beautiful piece of British Columbia’s history called Alexandra Bridge. I always take Highway 9(Agassiz-Rosedale BC 9N) to enjoy the backroad scenery instead of being stuck in traffic on Highway 1. You continue straight and merge onto Highway 7, then keep right at the fork to merge onto Hwy 1E(signsContinue reading “Alexandra Bridge”

Lighthouse Park

One place I have always seen posts about but never had the chance to visit was Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. Since I had some errands in Vancouver, I decided to make the extra twenty minute drive from our destination and check it out! I started my day with two kids who insisted life isContinue reading “Lighthouse Park”

Green Lake Camping 2015

Green Lake is an amazing lake located in the heart of Caribou country! One year we had worked all summer and had not done any camping all year and it was breaking my heart that summer was almost over. So August long weekend, I made a reservation, convinced my husband to drive three hours, andContinue reading “Green Lake Camping 2015”

Walk-In Camping with Kids

I had never been walk-in camping and found out days before leaving for a trip that the site my friend had booked was walk-in only!!! I was terrified, just my daughter and myself were going on this trip and I could not fathom unloading everything to the site ourselves! It was amazing, everything went well,Continue reading “Walk-In Camping with Kids”

Road Trip with BC Ferries

When traveling on the BC Ferries system, paying for a reservation is definitely worth the extra Reservation Fee, in my opinion. My mom refuses to pay the extra and will sit and wait, however I feel our time is worth the $10 Fee and having to sit there with your kids and watch the ferryContinue reading “Road Trip with BC Ferries”

Road Trip with Kids- What to Pack

Now that my kids are older, road trips are considerably easier. They can pick out and pack their own toys and clothes(with a check by Mom), and somewhat understand what we mean when we say ‘7 hours of driving’. When they were little, I used cheap solutions like noticing which toys they played with frequentlyContinue reading “Road Trip with Kids- What to Pack”
