Looking to travel around BC - Care to join me?

Hello!

I love visiting BC though I've sadly only experienced a teeney bit of the SW corner. It would be great to make more friends to visit with all around the province!

I'm starting to figure out my travel plans for the next few months and a major factor in deciding where to go is knowing cool folks who want to hang out &/or show me around.

I am almost certain that at least some of you are pretty darn awesome - "only sorta awesome" works too - so please have a look at my profile & get in touch soon if you want to meet up with me! :)

Hey, I'm unfortunately only home for a short time in BC this summer but if by any chance it fitted into your travel plans, I'm looking for a lift home from Vancouver to the Okanagan and could in exchange offer you a place to sleep for a night or two in the Okanagan (about 15min from Oliver) and show you around the area a bit. Lots of good hikes, climbing, canoeing etc in the area!

Sorry for the double reply, for some reason the website won't let me delete the first post, the second post has the dates I'm headed home (july 30th) added in! Internet being uncooperative! :)

Sorry for the delayed reply. I will be up in BC for the end of June & start of July. I'm also likely to mostly be using public transit options for getting around the province.

Still debating where all to visit & very open to suggestions & tips! :)

Hi Mel & Pibita,
I apologize for not replying sooner. How have you been enjoying Vancouver? Any tips for me? I will probably have some time free tomorrow & would enjoy meeting up for a beverage and/or a hike. After Vancouver, I decided to head up the sunshine coast & then over to central Vancouver Island. Maybe we'll bump into each other over there too!

Have fun!

Hello again friends!

Canadian Immigration REALLY likes me and so they kept me around to chat for awhile. So long I actually only managed to catch the last skytrain in from the airport... Anyway, perhaps we can meet up some time tomorrow?

Hey Greenheart, I noticed you are planning to do head up the sunshine coast and over to central vancouver island. I'll be heading into Vancouver July 2nd and then heading up the sunshine coast on the 3rd/4th of july, there's a music festival on Texada Island which is accessed through the same port called Diversity looks like a good time to be had, I've heard the music is more dj based, the people it brings in from my understanding are pretty awesome. Thats July 6th weekend. From there I'll be camping beaches and natural areas road tripping around vancouver island, hiking, swimming, playing music on random beaches and around camp fires, I play with fire here and there spinning staff. Lots more about me and my plans but that's a start and an idea for you if you wanted. Cheers
