Re: soliciting ideas


Didn't get much from my buddy:

there are a couple of great camping spots on the east coast of Moresby near Sandspit
closed for season meaning outhouses only I think
restaurant in Airport @ Sandspit listed as Best Local in Hardy's Where to Eat in Canada

Talk to the locals and you can't go wrong

endless places to visit
cvh

I can send you another emai from him with a half dozen pix, but not much info. Just ask at gbaglo@shaw.ca and I'll forward it to you.

Re: soliciting ideas

Hi Glen,

Thanks for the tips - I sent you the e-mail.

I do have a local tour leader/friend when i get to Skidegate (a Haida artist - should be fun). But the north end of the island will be pure exploration and tip following.

I do plan on heading to Moresby as well to do a bit o' paddling with the dog - should be exciting.

TIP - stayed at "Helena Lake Campground" - about 12 km off the 97 just north of Lac La Hache - very nice free campground right on the lake (frozen right now, and the road in was "fun" with snow and steepness, but the Escape didn't bat an eye - I did).

Cheers,
Dirk

Re: soliciting ideas

Misty Meadows campground - beautiful, near Tlell (between Skidegate and Port Clements) - no services

Agate Beach campground - amazing!! north of Masset (and east) - no services

Hidden Island rv site - very friendly, services including laundry and showers, internet, and great fish and chips.

Are you now there?

If so, I await extensive reports.

Re: soliciting ideas

Hi Glenn,

I've attempted a blog to track my movements. Let me know what you think.

http://web.me.com/mosquitodirk/Site/Haida_Gwaii.html

It's fabulous here - the photo ops abound at every turn.

Cheers,
Dirk

Re: soliciting ideas

Dirk, I have bookmarked your blog and look forward to seeing the updates. The Haida Gwaii seems like a great place.

Re: soliciting ideas

Dirk,

Now that you have told us about your blog, the pressure should be on you to "share" on a daily basis! I just signed on again to hear about the latest paddle (not on the ocean!) and to see the latest photos, but you haven't updated since Sunday! It's like a soap opera -- we have to get our daily fix! I know why you didn't get blown away -- your Escape is weighted down with all the stones you've been collecting.

Looking forward to reading the next chapter!

Nancy B.

Re: soliciting ideas

Hi Nancy, I'll try to update it today - I've been dry camping (really cold dry and windy camping actually) with no cell or internet (blissful). Also been running out of battery - I'm back into Masset today to plug in, dry out, and warm up.

thanks for the interest (and I found more rocks - needed them last night).

Cheers,
Dirk
