    That was a nice read Tharg, perhaps next time you'll have your magic weather window.

    I've always thought I'd like to go up to lanz/cox someday, after reading this I'm not confident. I have hiked cape scott many times, the first time we missed the last chance to take the suspension bridge by a matter of weeks before it was closed.

    Great read, thanks.

    Thanks for posting a very enjoyable read. I related to the description of your re-entry into society at the burger place. It's always kind of a melancholy trip when you return from the coast.

    Good report, tharg. Some obstacles, but you got onto the Cape.

    Glad you enjoyed the report.

    So nobody has been out there? Hmmm. You are probably very wise...

    Still repairing the car after the journey.
    Torn CV boot and a flat tire.
    I guess I should have driven slower.

    Then I'll be waiting for the "High Pressure Building" weather forecast for Cape Scott. :roll:

    Cheers,
    Tom.

    I enjoyed that story, but it did make me hungry for a burger--hold the bell!
    I'm a city boy--I don't think I could handle camping in bear country. They are much more real than our GWSs.
