Do Canadians print their smoke signals, or do they use Cursive like the 'Mericans?

Default Another Seattlite heard from

Really happy about planning the trip this August 17th

A few questions:

What kinda beer do you all like?

Do you make food together? What food to bring?

My big Sprinter van is over height and may be over-length(22ft according to WA State ferries), so I will be looking for the best (cheapest) ferry route. Currently thinking: Seattle-Bainbridge-Port Angeles-Victoria. Any ideas?

Howard

The "Coho", running between Victoria & Pt. Angeles is a scenic way to go if you're travelling up the west side of Puget Sound. Arriving in Victoria's inner harbour leaves a very short trip to Dave's.
Getting through the border is usually quicker too than the line-ups often found
at Peace Arch crossing (I-5)
See you there!
Don

Coming from Tsawwassen - Swartz Bay via BC Ferries may be slightly cheaper, but may take longer (further to drive). And then there's the border crossing that Don pointed out.

You can check the rates (Ferry Fares | BC Ferries - British Columbia Ferry Services Inc.), but they don't include over-height rates.

For food you only need to bring any special dietary needs as basics are usually covered.Anything is appreciated thou.

We mightneed to do some figuing on where to park you.

Thanks Dave,
Parking the Sprinter takes about the same space of one of the really long pickup trucks, and it is about 8' tall. The good side to it is that I can bring my bigger projects, and I can sleep in it.

Are mosquito netting/repellant important commodities for outdoor sleeping where you are?

There are some mosquitos, but not enuff that they are a real problem. If you have blood they REALLY like then might be a good idea.

Miss Quitoes love me! I often sleep out on the balcony and have had few, if any, problems with them! It's far worse at my house, but what do you expect in the Subtropical Climes of Western Washington?

Best Regards,
Capt. "X"
