Yeah...as we say in the US Army "That's the Long Pole In The Tent"

We have toyed with the idea of staying close (when possible) to the border so we could drop back to the USA to refuel, but we are not sure that is practical

That sounds like a fantastic trip to take BamaBob . In the years to come I hope to start doing some extensive travelling and would love to do a route like that someday as well (most likely when retired also). Sooke B.C. is in fact on the southern end of Vancouver Island. So on the map it is the big island due south of the Queen Charlotte's. (Fun fact if you are keeping score, the Queen Charlotte's are now officially called Haida Gwaii, as homeage to the Native Haida people who have inhabited the island, possibly as far back as 13,000 years ago)


On the map Sooke is located southwest of Victoria, which is BC's capital city.

Thanks for the Info BC Boy!

I am a big fan of fun facts...now I am off to read about the Haida

How large is the Big Iskland? I looks to be interesting to tour - even with the gas & ferry prices

Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick was beautiful ! We were lucky to have great weather. Not too sure what it would be like when the weather wasn't so nice. A beautiful sunset !!!
