Tales from the Road

Seventh month map:

 

 

Last month (Sixth Month on the Road) ended in EPIC skiing in Rogers Pass (BC)…

 

… and it continues this month near Nelson (BC)!

 

We first hit Evening Ridge near Whitewater resort (point #6 from the “Seventh Month” map above):

Going down! Whitewater resort is that beautiful thing in the background…

 

We then headed to Kootenay Pass:

We had to shovel our way in, but then our basecamp was set!

 

The snow was phenomenal at the pass!

Not only the snow was phenomenal… the food was too!

 

 

And when we descended back to Nelson to ski Whitewater resort, 15 cm forecasted overnight turned into a 30 cm. We were happy.

Sorry: powder day in the resort = no pictures!

 

Then the temperature just warmed up… and since we’re very picky about how we like our snow, we decided to make the best of it and we headed for the Coast in Squamish, BC (point #12)! We were in the mood for parking at the trailhead, ride our bikes, make firecamp and drink beer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s Next?

Squamish is mountain biking paradise! Trails are much, MUCH harder, technical, steep and fun to ride than anywhere else and we LOVE that. It’s our favorite place so far for mountain biking and we could stay for weeks, but it’s too early for being here; it’s still early spring and raining. I mean it’s fine, but our home is on wheels so why not take advantage of that, right? We’re thinking of heading to Moab to meet friends (and sun), then slowly make our way back to British-Columbia via the coast (Oregon, Washington) so we’re immersed in beautiful weather throughout the next months… at least that’s the plan for now!

NICE TO MEET YOU.

About-Us-Narrow

Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then, and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

Heads up! As of Fall 2021, we are currently visiting our families back home and we might not be able to answer all comments due to time constrain. Thanks for understanding and see you on the road! -Isabelle and Antoine

  1. Love your website. My wife had aggressive breast cancer and treatment last year. When all finished (easy to type, harder to do) and in full remission(!!) she said she wanted a van for camping. When you go thru all that, your partner says Yes! So, here we go, buying a Promaster in a few days, the slow conversion starts from there. Your website is the best out there. It’s giving me the confidence to do this thing. Thanks! We’re both RNs, but engineers rock, especially when they’re using their talents to build vans, design mountain bikes, etc.. Again, thank you!
