Gsb15 can probably answer better as he's the one planning this, but I will throw in my two cents. I've been on a few of the Nanaimo runs before, and I also have young kids. I'd say the Nanaimo run would be a long long day for a three year old. Typically we're off road for 6-8hrs. Coming from Victoria, you're looking at an additional 3hrs total highway driving. If you're new to 4x4ing, you might want to come on your own once or twice to get the hang of it also... All that said, if you have some 4x4 experience and you think your daughter can handle sitting in the car all day, then go for it!I wanna go! Is it family friendly? I wanna bring my wife and 3 year old daughter along. We had a laugh at SWMBO, lol.
That sounds good for a time. anyone who needs directions could contact Jim, alternatively I could meet people at the Tim Hortons in North Nanaimo at 9:30 and go from thereAs most of you have been to my house before, lets all meet here ready to launch by 10 AM or so....just a suggestion if it helps get this thing more organized.
That looks pretty interesting Jim. You sure it's not far from Nanaimo? I looked it up, and I think it's here (click link below). Close to Port Alberni... I'm up for some 'land cruisin' though. Don't mind a drive - thats what it's all about. Might want to start earlier though.Rob and I got out for an pre-exploration run today to the back-40 of Nanaimo. Back road conditions are not too bad, still lots of snow but overall was a great run today. Just spit balling here, someone sughgested a run to the Yellow Creek Mine. Its not far from Nanaimo and looks interesting. here is a link to some local wheelers going to this mine: Thoughts on this?
Just talked to Matt he said he might be able to get us easy peezy directions to this one. Post away Matt...
