A big project just started…

Long time no blog.

Big personal news recently is we just bought a tiny bit of land on Gambier Island (right about here), which is currently fit for nothing, but hopefully with some work can become a camping spot, then maybe a place we can park a camper, and some day build something. The island is quite wild, with little development yet, and our lot is 5 minutes to the dock, from where we can see lots of water, Cypress mountain, etc.

It feels like we just embarked on a very big project. Oh well.

Step one will be clearing part of the land enough to be able to set up a tent.

Step two: If anyone knows of a cheap old camper (would love an airstream) in the neighborhood, let me know…


  1. No trailer leads, but congratulations. (I’ll want to grill you on this purchase next time you’re in town…) — Stephen

  2. Wow, congratulations! That is indeed the start of a big project. Does the ferry to Vancouver land near there yet?

  3. No direct ferry yet – it’s a ferry to langdale and a water taxi to Gambier. 2h door to door for now.

  4. David, congratulations!

    Rustic living is really great. Once you get a more permanent dwelling built on the isle, you might not want to leave….
