Just came across this website. This is our first time in Vancouver Island and I'm just blown away by it's beauty. You guys really live in a special place. We started in Victoria and have been driving up the west coast. Not too much "overlanding" other than trying to get lost on the occasional forest road but we're excited to have such great weather so far. We love how close you always are to either a lake, an inlet or the ocean.
If anyone has any suggestions we're in Port Alberni today and will be headed north from here and eventually turning east then headed down the east side of the island. You can actually follow us in near real time since we use APRS on our truck. Below is the link if anyone is interested. Please let us know if you want to grab a beer or anything. We love to meet locals who are into off road adventures.
