Some may recall a couple years back I posted a similar thread for ideas for our Vaca in your neck of the woods. I want to re-thank all those that responded and helped. We had a great trip (well my friends did I broke my shoulder) which involved Bellingham, some days in Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton, the NS, and a Tyax trip. This year we want to do something similar (w/o the shoulder breaking) but replace the Tyax trip with maybe a trip to the islands. So I was hoping you guys could chime in with some ideas.
Here's what it looks like right now…
6 dudes, 1 RV, 6x6 AM/Enduro/yada yada bikes. Flying into Seattle 9/11 returning on the red eye 9/20.
We're thinking instead of setting and tearing down camp everyday we make base camp in Squamish and do day trips from there with possibly spending 2 or 3 days on the islands.
Day1 is Bellingham (that worked out very nicely last year) unless others have a recommendation that is close to the Seattle and camping.
Day2 is where I'm stuck. I kinda want to go do an island trip but I'm not sure about the logistics. Can we bring the RV on the ferries? Where is the best place to go for an "epic" all day backcountry style ride for 2 or 3 days? Is there camping or do we need to look into hotels? Can we island hop? Which island is that new bike park on? Wouldn't mind hitting that up.
Or do we make our base camp in Squamish and do our Island trip on the back end of things?
Let me know what you think. Thanks for your time.
