    Hidden empty one on the north western end of the Island!
    Weather was good. Little bit of rain on Sunday but nothing major.

    The gate at Tugwell Main was open, as was Kapoor, so I ran a little loop today.

    Good planning! Not too often both those gates are open. And nice pictures too.

    That is a substantial gate! With some serious blocks to prevent going around. Glad we haven't gotten those around Powell River (yet?). Maybe tuck the little TW through, but not my Dakar or your Tiger. Thanks for the post.

    Today, three of us drove out to Sooke, then up Tugwell, Butler Main, to Valentine Main and back to Bulter, and Tug and then home.
    Start off looking a little crappy, but the sun soon came out and it turned out to be a terrific day!

    Nothing fancy, just a couple of guys having fun.
