    Battle Bay at higher high tides - info please

    We were lucky...when we pulled in last year (August 21, 2014), the group of Fishers that were occupying the site were pulling out. They had been there a week. There are a few other smaller above beach sites near by where nootka took that pic. BTW, you could use Islet '125' of the Cuttle Islets...

    No Bomb! I was told (by a local) that some of the locals who knew Bill well were suspicious of some of the details surrounding the discovery of his body. That's it.

    Way to go Russell on the record-breaking feat :clap: :clap: :clap: re/ jk's post Anytime a 'Feat' / 'Record' has been challenged or broken, I see nothing wrong in putting in perspective. Anytime I have read about a mountain climber ascending a world-class mountain, it is usually noted...

    can you do the 'roll'?

    Speaking of SSTIKS... We had 5 kids (in the Kids Program) get 'Hand Rolls' on Saturday...3 of them had never even tried rolling before! SSTIKS is unlike most/all other Symposiums...they offer a Kids Program parallel to the usual Adults programing. We had 10 kids this year. BTW...the Kids...

    Where are the Pacific Paddling Symposium reports?

    Haven't been on this site for quite some time... First...nootka's comment: Explanation: Dubside was turned back at the border...he made the fatal mistake of admitting he was coming into Canada to 'Work'...without a Work Visa he was turned away. As Mike Jackson mentioned...James Manke, Mike...
