Posted June 12th, 2012 - 8:22 pm by from Vernon, Canada (Permalink)
Hey, i'm a 23 year old male vegetarian "hippy" looking for a partner to get out and see vancouver island and surroundings including sunshine coast Starting early July and coming back early august.
Camping practically all of it with a bit of visiting here and there, looking to possibly join in on a festival or 2 in the area if i can
Planning to go to Diversity Fest which is the start of my trip early July

Things i'm looking to do
-northcoast trail
-kayak island hoping
-camping on secluded beaches with hammok/tent/nothing but bedding on beach under stars
-play music, I'm bringing saxaphone and dijeridoo(which i'm trying to learn to circular breath)
-hiking, swimming, maybe some surfing
I enjoy being farely active but go with the flow of whats desired each day
If you're interested in taking part in this adventure, I leave for diversity festival for july 6th weekend and will be taking off on the adventure from there.
Cheers and look forward to hearing from someone soon

Not sure how set in stone your dates are, I'll be arriving in Vancouver on july 30th and heading to the Okanagan home to visit my parents for 2 weeks or so. Always good to have people around for a few days to hike, climb, swim in the lakes, wine taste, share a beer, etc. If you head the okanagan direction let me know, its a great spot in the summer, we live up on a hillside not too far from penticton and you'd definitely be welcome to throw a tent up outside our house, or crash in the hammock, and theres a collection of violins, sax, piano and guitar around the house that need playing!

Ah...have just realised you're from the okanagan! In that case, if you'd like a stopover for a night on your way home then maybe we can go for a climb or hike! Always good to meet people in the area!
