This was mostly about exploring stuff in the Kapoor area. It ended up being a reasonably short day, and we ran some serious distance down some un-explored tracks. Mt Lazar was our first goal, but a watershed gate ended that plan… May try again from nearer the start of Kapoor. Oh, and I ran through Oliphant on the way home, half looking for the Chris and his LIRC crowd.
I buggered off with the big camera and a list of things I wanted to see/explore/photograph. I did see the sea lions in Cowichan Bay. The Holt main gate was closed, which cost me the better part of an hour (running south to it, then back north to go around it). I did cover the “new to me” roads between Skutz falls and Stoltz main, and mapped some new tracks.
This was mostly working on some new trails, but we did do some of Devon’s existing trail network. Also watch the remembrance day ceremony in Cobble Hill.
Rob was riding with some friends on the one day with good weather. I’d gotten the bike back together after some significant work (rings and valve seals). Let’s see if I get invited back :)

Bob wanted to get out and ride some dirt. Said he’d dropped his bike while riding solo and didn’t think he should be doing that (while solo — he is seventy).Read more
