Cool! I was thinking of dumpster diving food-wise too but I'm open to treasure hunting too. I was also thinking we could follow one of the areas in this post: http://www.couchsurfing.org/group_read.html?gid=54856&post=12646472 because I'm not too sure where to go. What do you think?

Posted April 26th, 2013 - 5:03 pm by from Ottawa, Canada (Permalink)
What about next Thursday? or Friday the 3rd?

Posted April 29th, 2013 - 7:53 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Either work for me. St. Caio?

Posted April 30th, 2013 - 11:24 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Thursday?

Posted May 2nd, 2013 - 8:40 pm by from Ottawa, Canada (Permalink)
Hey,
I don't know where St. Caio is ...
My plans for this week have filled up. What about next Thursday evening?

Posted May 2nd, 2013 - 8:47 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Okay I can't do next Thursday night but Monday to Wednesday I'm free if any of those work?

Posted May 2nd, 2013 - 9:15 pm by from Ottawa, Canada (Permalink)
How about Monday?

Monday works for me too. I wasn't thinking of cooking afterwards but if we can find a place to do so we can and if people are interested then yeah. We can always go for it Monday and plan another event down the road as well or still bring it up in another group that we're going.

Also what area do you guys live in? We should also figure out where to meet. If we're using the map, Commercial and Granville Island have the most places to check out according to Britta unless you have other suggestions.

Well I'm down to cook I just can't offer up my place right now.

I was also thinking of hitting up one area and we could walk? Maybe we could check out Commercial and see what's available. Do you want to meet at Commercial skytrain station?

Hi,

Im sure I could lead an outing. I do not have a vehicle though and dumpstering is much easier with one.

We could always meet at Granville island, its usually a great location.

Give me some ideas on times that work best for you all.

Sunday august 4th or Monday august 5th could work.

Without a vehicle its tough to get around, maybe we should meet at Granville island. There is usually great food there.

Posted July 25th, 2013 - 8:31 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
I'll be away from August 6-9 so anytime before or after that!

So it looks like the 5th will be the day.

Without a vehicle it is probably best we meet at Granville island around 7pm.

we can also dumpster on the drive... its just usually less finds and gnarlier dumpsters

Let me know who is in!

I'd like to set something up! Not sure what my schedule like is in the next couple of weeks. But if anyone else can organize something for sure? Otherwise we could do something in September.

Would anybody like to go this week or next week? (First/second week of September.) Let me know! I'm not sure what day is best so whenever we're all available.

Hey all you lovely divers :)

I have been diving quite a lot at my local shops - on foot or by bike. I've been doing pretty decently, but as you guys have prob seen, dumpsters tend to provide a glut of certain things at a time, rather than a wide variety... Soooo I was wondering if there would be interest in a DD trading scheme? We could get together once a week and trade dived goods?
Flick me a message if you're interested, n also if you have ideas on what kind of venue would suit this!

Also, some random inspiration: http://www.thegleanerskitchen.org/

Keep on gleaning on :)

Hi I am SO sorry! I found out at the last minute I have to leave town tomorrow morning now instead of Tuesday. Have fun tomorrow though and hopefully we can organize another dumpster dive that I'll be able to make.
