Roland is organizing a trip to Garibaldi Lake by crossing via the Barrier Trail to Helm Meadows or vice versa. The plan would be to have two cars, a party starting at each end, and to camp somewhere in the middle (Helm or Taylor Meadows).

V. Ms. Manners

Dear Ms. Manners,

I just had my first experience bush whacking and now I look like an abuse victim - some people suspect that my hiking partner took me out into the woods to beat me. How do I set the record straight?

Sincerely,
Used and abused


Dear Used,
 
You're in the VOC - we all know you were asking for it.

Love,
Ms. Manners
