so what's the deal with wind mobile

This map gives the coverage range
Whistler village is covered.

Signal strength depends on where you are, but I haven't had any issues yet.

No, probably not, unless it is unlocked and has an AWS band. Newer Samsung, BB and the iPhone 5 will work if unlocked.

Good camping spots

BC Forest Rec Sites Just browse for sites without fees. I have had good luck up Pike Mountain (Johnny, Goose, Thalia). The sites are more spread out, some cool cliff jumping, good fishing, out of the way.

Charging a MacBook on the frozen sea?

I personally use a solar panel to charge truck batteries and then run a 12V to 110V inverter to charge my devices but that Amazon link looks exactly what you need.

Need help buying Christmas presents for College / University Student

Walking around campus in the pissing rain sucks. Get a nice rain jacket/wind breaker and girly rubber boots. My GF has Hunter boots and loves them.

2012/13 Snow tires thread (cars & trucks, merged thread)

What Wranglers are you looking at? I'm currently eying up the Wrangler Duratracs for my new tires. Anyone like these for winter traction?

I'm running these on my truck. Had them on tail end of last winter. They are excellent for mud and snow (wet and dry) but like any deep tread tire, they're less than stellar in the rain. Pricey though.

Best Camping in BC

If you're going for car access, I would recommend Fintry Provincial Park. It's 35 minutes north of Westbank on Lake Okanagan, super quiet and very scenic. It has some very cool stuff on site.
Check it out

Big Times Big Mines!! PHOTOSZZ!!11

Awesome pictures. The photos don't really capture the size of the Valley pit. I'm also surprised you have no pictures of the tailings 'pond'

Takes a little learning but it is useful.

Vedder back in the day

Was it Bumps 2000? Or Roaches something? Those are two old trails that I remember…

Give me a big old mountain to climb!

Mount MacFarlane (usually referred to as Pierce Lake trail) is a long hike, with great views and great lakes. Max Elev. is 2090m

Pierce Lake Trail

I have not done Williams ridge, but I have heard excellent things.

Williams ridge

I'll second the Cheam recommendation too. It is pretty short but has one of the highest elevations. However, it is always very busy and the lake is a mudhole now, due to avalanches.
