Here’s a video update on what we’ve been doing in May 2024. We returned to Canada on April 30th and spent a few weeks on Vancouver Island. First, we driveway-surfed at my sister’s place in Victora, then went to see Anne’s dad in Nanaimo. We camped at Rathtrevor Provincial Park for four days.

After that, we moved further up the island to Courtney, where we spent five days cleaning out a storage room to get rid of it and save some money on rent. We stayed at a newer RV Park called Puntledge, which is close to town and has huge campsites.

After completing that task, we took the ferry from Comox to Powell River and drove up to Lund to camp near our boat at Sunlund RV Park. Once the boat is launched, the RV and truck will be stored in its place.

Since May 13th, we have been prepping our boat, “Vestri,” for this season’s adventures. She needed bottom work, winterizing, some maintenance, etc. We hired a person to do the nasty bottom sanding and painting task. I’ve been busy with the dewinterizing, various mechanical, plumbing, and electrical tasks, plus loading our stuff back on it. Anne has been prettying up some of the teak brightwork and organizing stuff. Lots to do!

Poor weather has hampered the bottom sanding and paint task, but it’s coming along, and we should be launching it in early June. Stay tuned.
