All the places I've been, I'm very impressed with the Chilliwack area. Very picturesque. Love how the clouds hang over the mountain tops. Beautiful. Me and my Escape 19 will hopefully see many more sites.

Cultus Lake is a wonderful 1000 trails campsite. Spent my first 2 days there. They also are a Passport America site too. Around 100 sites along a passive stream and close to Cultus Lake, it's worth a stay.

Bridal Falls is a beautiful campsite. Well maintained, laid out and over 200 spaces, many with 6' hedges between sites. Most have full hookups and plenty of things to do. The pool is very nice too. Only drawback is it's kinda pricy. Even charge a loonie (Canadian $1 coin) for a shower. Recommended park though. Attached pics are from Bridal Falls.

Tomorrow we leave for Silverlake, WA for the next 2 days.

I enjoy the humour !!!

As someone without pets. I've had to endure hours of yapping dogs in the next trailer when they've been left and I suppose are experiencing "separation anxiety."also yapping dogs that get territorial about their trailer site which they somehow think extends onto ours.

But I suppose enough ranting about pets. I do like Gbagao's sense of humour

I've had several cats and don't any more. I'm a dog kinda guy that likes to go for walks and hikes for exercise as my doctor suggested. Very hard to take a cat for a hike.

As with babies, kids, dogs, cats, inlaws, and many other types of family, you'll have run-ins occasionally. It's all part of life I guess. As long as you're camping, it's all good for the most part. Focus your attention on the fun stuff.

Don't do that.
OK, a Brittany Spaniel I grant you. What about this little one?

Glad to learn you and the boyz are having a good time. Thanks for the pictures and the information. Those are good things to know about that area and I'm sure there are some people who are new to the area up that way that will find it useful.
What mods are you thinking about? Mosquito repellents?

That's the best option. Just use a little common sense.

We asked for the same thing this past winter. Wouldn't do it. Will get it done down the road.
