Yes, it is! 43rd largest Island in the world! I doubt I will ever run out of new places to explore on it!

You could be right. When I rundown the lake in my boat I use a BC Topo map chip in my GPS. I don't recall that the island names are on the chart.

They're unnamed on every map I have, I'm just going by what Papa (Grandpa) told me back in the day!

I never meet your gramps but I would believe him. My real stomping grounds is a little north at Nanaimo Lakes. I like to fish the Cowichan. I only ride by on the way to Renfrew.

About 2 years ago, I said I saw what I thought was a lone wolf near Shawnigan Lake.



Then I see this on the news! I would be willing to bet it's the same animal..

What a spectacular RR. This truly reminds me that I need to get out to the island and do more discovering I've only done it with the family and car camping. That ride report and your pictures kept me entertained for the last two hours while getting ready to go to work. I had a 1984 Toyota Tercel SR5 four-wheel-drive. And nothing was amazing never let me down until the timing belt broke. Then I lost it in a crooked golf game. But by that time it'd already seen 400,000 km. mine was the gold colored one. I have family in Vancouver and I plan on one day stashing a bike of there. So I can explore the island and surrounding area.
Amazing stuff, I'm subscribed so don't stop posting
