new guy from ontario

Hey guys, I'm a 32 year old guy from toronto who has decided to quit my job, sell most of my stuff and move to the island.

I'll be on the island by mid june and my plan is to camp and explore the island for june, july, august and then look for a job and place to live in september.

My good friend lives on the island and last summer we spent 3 weeks camping and exploring and I basically fell in love. We camped at redneck beach on Kennedy lake, nahmint lake near port alberni and a few spots up near sayward so I'm not a complete newbie to the island.

My truck is a 2011 ford ranger fx4 offroad with 265 70 r16 bfg ko2's. I've added 2 inch belltech shackles to handle the weight of my leer cap, sleeping platform and all my stuff.

I'm looking for other mostly stock guys who would be down for some easy trail runs or camping trips. If anyone is interested feel free to send me a pm.

Thanks! Jon.

Just a heads up, september is hard to find a decent place to rent in Victoria with all the students coming to UVic. But welcome! You'll love it here.

I figured sept would be a hard time to find an apartment but I'm hoping it won't be too bad around the duncan and shawnigan lake area.

Thanks for the reply!

I'm down in the Ukee/Tofino area right now, camping at redneck beach on kennedy lake. If you guys have never been here I highly recommend it. It's pretty much a non stop party on weekends and there is a pretty decent trail to virgin falls down the same logging road.

I'm heading up there on the 18th for a couple nights, gonna show some friends the usual sights around the area. Virgin falls, Muriel lake, canso bomber, skycouch.

Hit me up if you're looking for some camping around Nanaimo or Port Alberni. Calew91 at gmail.com (I don't check this forum often)
