In this month we found a boat to take to Vancouver Island, completed my final field stint for the year near Vanderhoof, and plunged back to Mexico to the surprise of all.
Continuing our plan and building knowledge Dale and I went to look at a friend of a friend's Hunter 295 which had spent a few years on the West coast after being imported from the US. About as big of a boat that you can legally transport with a pickup truck. "Wide Load". Thanks to Thomas for showing us his boat and opening his mind to the idea of doing a boat share with us...Let's see how it goes.

I'm taking my bike and going South!
Right at the end on the month it was time to get out and just before Alberta locked down the province again. Who knows for how long...
I decided to try bringing a bike from Canada this time in order to have something of more quality and to bring a few other things with me too. Thanks Thomas for the bike and help packing it. $60 for the bike, $35 for second bag and oh another cheeky $50 for "Handling".
