    Default Overland Trips, Plans and Dreams

    Spring is coming fast to the south coast, warming me up to some hoped for road trips. The price of fuel is looking pretty good too. No guarantees but we're hoping to visit QCI and the Arctic Circle this summer, both long time, wished for destinations.

    Anyone else have plans or dream trips they'd like to share ?

    Our summer plans are to visit the island a few times this summer. Head north and west from Nanaimo to scout future living arrangements? Maybe do the tourist thing down to Victoria and what not. Westfalia is coming along great, another Westfalia has been offered to me and who knows maybe that will happen.

    We are headed to the Yukon. Planned for the last three weeks of Aug. Not much offroading planned but some backroads are. Not sure of where yet as a map is in route to me. Camping, fishing and some easy hiking is planned.

    Our big trip this year is 20 days down to and around Colorado to explore the state and mountains etc. Depending on time we may do a bit of exploring in Death Valley on the way home. Smaller 10 day trips to the Rockies and the Alberta foothills areas as well
