There was a fire pit, and some fuel near the dead end, so I decided to try out the fire starting sticks I bought for my back road adventures. I never go into the bush alone without bringing a few emergency items to make spending the night easier! The damp of the coast can cut right through every layer, and freeze you to the bone!

On the way up here, I passed two people with a pickup who were hunting or shooting near by. I was just packing up to leave, and I saw them coming my way, towards the dead end. I thought they might be curious why I didn't come right back from a dead end! It turns out they were just checking up to make sure I was fine. "We thought we'd better check, on you, or we'd feel like assholes if we heard someone had to spend the night in the bush later!"
It's sure good to know that people try to watch out for you in the bush! I said my thank yous and we both headed towards Shawnigan, him letting me pass.
