Planning the Vancouver Island Trip
Share
clear
We bought a Winnebago View, our land yacht, a year ago and use it to visit boating places we have enjoyed. The View is small and built for touring with 2 people. It has a 5 cylinder Mercedes Benz diesel engine, propane generator, AC, heat, fridge, stove, convection microwave, satellite TV, etc. However, it has no slide outs (to save weight) and bunk beds (to save space). Last December and January we spent 7 weeks aboard touring Florida and averaged 16 miles per US Gallon of diesel. We leave June 17th on the first leg to Brockville Ontario where there is a reunion for the folks that worked at Automatic Electric in the 1960s. On June 23 we will take the Trans-Canada Highway to Calgary then north to Edmonton, and west through Jasper, Whistler and North Vancouver. Then a ferry takes us across to Vancouver Island.  Our return trip will be through the northern US states with a stop in St. Paul to visit our grandkids. I'll try to keep this blog up-to-date at least every few days.
