I’m off June 16th to 19th. Day trip or camp 1 night might be cool. Willing to travel. Sure liked the looks of that area near Nahmint. Call in sick and let’s do this....tee hee
I’m in for a day trip or a night of camping!
Ooh ya maybe me too. Depending where it is I could come out Thursday afternoon to Friday
Nahmint area is killer - I'm in for a day trip for sure, maybe camp out too.
Ok Nahmint is looking good. Let me know what days work for you. Definitely I’ll spend the night because of the distance. Thursday Friday?
Thursday Friday works for me!
Thursday Friday works for me as well.
Hmm, I could probably take a couple days off work and join. I love that area and know a few cool spots!
I technically have an exam on the Friday, so we'll see how much work I need to put into that to make this work. I should probably do the responsible thing though... Haha.
Quit your jobs and drop out of school
Lol just kidding you’ll need money for upgrades
All you need is some good editing and a go getter personality and wheeling could be your job! YouTube money flows like gold to those that know how to mine it. Hard to compete with channels like 4Low BC over on the mainland though
I just got back from camping in the nahmint lake area and it's pretty slim pickings. The rec site is closed and the river spot can only accommodate about 3 campers.
I bet alberni locals know of some hidden gems, but I couldn't find shit.
Gracie lake just north of Nahmint is nice. I also know several very nice spots just a bit west of sproat if we wanted to head in that direction.
Lol Simon you want hard to compete try Lite Bright on YouTube they wheel and she ain’t hard on the eyes. Looking forward to it. We should meet in Port I guess. Shane if you know the area the best let us know where to meet and when. I,m going to trailer my rig to Port. Just in case.... Did I mention I’m jacked!
Any videographers / swimsuit models want to collab on a vioffroad youtube channel? Haha
Rob is your rig insured? We could meet in town but there's still a bit of highway driving after that to get to sproat. A good place to meet might be the Petro across from the clutesi haven marina. You could probably park your trailer in the marina parking lot too, though you might want to check about overnight parking.
What time is everyone thinking? 10am at Petro work for you guys?
Petro location: https://goo.gl/maps/8H6xvJ4iCWLLt2sZ6
That works for me!
Yeah my rig is insured. I’ll find a spot and meet you at the Petro at 10
Hey I have a swimsuit and can hold a camera....
Check out "the story till now" on YouTube. Some guy with a built gladiator on the mainland makes really high quality off road vids.
I have 2 professional mirrorless cameras and a gopro
Story till Now is great too, super good production value.
Unfortunately I'll be sitting this one out. I have to work Friday now, plus there ain't no way my rig is making the trip to Alberni in one piece. Just thinking of taking it over the hump makes me shiver.
See you guys tomorrow morning - Simon we'll have to do another down your way at some point!
I am jealous I can’t make it for this trip!
And yes “The Story til Now” has very well put together and fun to watch vids!
Pics from the trip. Thanks Alex Shane and Britt for all the help with my junk.....
Alex I can’t tell you how many times you were lifting a tire off the ground. Well done and that safety green Jeep is so capable
Thanks for the awesome trip guys! here are some pics I got:
I get better gas mileage with fewer tires on the ground 😂 epic adventure!
Here are my pics. I have a couple videos I send to you guys directly.
Dam. Looks like a dam good time! I wish I could’ve made it! Then there would’ve been another Toyota tri-podding around ! Lol
Okay now I'm really jealous. That whole area looks amazing. And that weather.. Great pics for me to drool over all day at work today
Wow, I'm jealous too. I would have still passed my course if I skipped out on my exam... Seriously, great scenery, and great rigs! Alex - bumper is looking pretty sweet! Rob, awesome looking rig too, look forward to seeing it up close. Thanks for posting guys.
wow thats looks like it would have been a fantastic trip! the pictures are beautiful
Super jealous of those pics! Looks like a blast. I did a 3 nighter at Gracie a couple weeks ago almost.
