    The corner must be the one on the Blewett road between the dam and I am not certain where the hand is but have a vague idea it is by the Bonnington dam somewhere. I have seen it just not certain where.

    I see BC Parks are closing all Provincial Campgrounds to non BC residents for the entire summer. Reservations go back online on May 27.

    Yep

    The hand is at the corner of Granite Rd and Blewett Rd

    That great corner is the second turn east of Fortynine Cr

    1FC95223-E4EB-4861-B4E4-1CC3772CD6ED.jpeg Sadly, or deliciously ... depending on ones view ... just bought a pristine, German, 95 Westfalia. Paid too much.
    So ... the dirt bike budget has been blown. till next year.

    Sweet. I used to have one, 88 Syncro. Never should have sold it. You meed the nicest people at repair shops all over the country. You will love it.

    Congrats on your choice of a camper van!!
    My wife and I traveled throughout Europe 20 some odd years ago, so we planned on renting a Westfalia for the duration. I searched online for hours on the rental sites in Frankfurt for a Westfailia without success. I started scrolling through the pictures of camper vans available and lo and behold, there was a Westfalia, except, the van was called a California model!!! Who would've thunk it?
    It was the perfect unit for us... fuel efficient as it had a diesel motor. It took me a while to figure out how the furnace worked as the manual was in German without any pictures.
    I figure your purchase is like an investment as you won't lose any $$ when you sell.

    I was there two weeks ago just for a ride and as usual there were a few folks out fishing, popular spot so I think it gets hit hard.
