    Thanks for the forcast,we can handle some rain just more fun if its not soaking and a little cooler,our trip up Kootenay was great but it never cooled off much,we were there around the 4th of july,so some marine layer and cool nights make zippin the sleeping bags together so nice for night time.

    Take the ferry over to Sointula and camp on the beach on the east side of the island. Then go to the great museum in the village.

    If you want a GPX for an easy gravel road route with off the beaten path very worthwhile stops PM me your emal addy. They were done up by our friend Gunnerbuck and he knows the north island very well.
