Canada West 2010, Ninth Annual HU Travellers Meeting Open now
 
Canada West, Nakusp, BC. August 12-15.

Full details and Registration open now!

We will both be there! The date for this event has CHANGED, so we can both make it.

If you haven't been to Nakusp, you owe it to yourself to go - the scenery is spectacular, the roads are stunning, (you WILL see wild animals from the road) and I can guarantee a great time! :mchappy:

Are you going to have a schedule of events for the weekend?
Thank you !

Grant Johnson 14 Feb 2010 14:02

We do have an approximate schedule of how the event goes on the registration page, but not the presenters schedule.

A detailed presentation schedule is impossible unfortunately - we rely completely on volunteer presenters, and they have a bad habit of not planning a year in advance so we can get them on the schedule! ;) Instead, as they come in, we post them up, and a day or two before the event we get an approximate schedule worked out, but it's never locked in stone until we actually see the whites of their eyes. We've tried for years to get it better, but given the nature of motorcycle travellers, that's the best we can do, so we make no promises! Go with the flow and have fun! :)

see you there!

As I was bumbling around this year trying to update my travel blog I was thinking that the ideal presentation at any HU meeting would be on how the tstories blog works and how to use it well. I am sure that I could have done a better job of it but was not sure how it all worked. So I will make you a deal, you do a presentation on the how to of the blog and I will do one on my "Great Escape".

See you at Can W

Done! Now you're committed :)

(On one condition - that we have an internet connection - it can't be done without a live connection as the software only runs on the server, so hopefully there's a wifi connection there.)

See you there, Grant

No Wi-Fi
 
Sorry Grant, the campground and senior's centre didn't have wi-fi last year. I can check with the campground to see if anything has changed but I wouldn't count on it.

No Wifi, that's a bummer, got to be a solution in this tech age. I have a Sprint unit for my laptop but I think it is only good in USA, will check.

Hi Bob,

I'm not sure which company Sprint is associated with but I'm sure there is both Rogers and Telus service in Nakusp. Might be some roaming charges though. I wonder if it would be possible to can few screenshots of the software in action?

Your Great Escape presentation wouldn't be the same as last year's would it? If so, do want to change it up a bit?

The roaming cost could get high real fast, will keep thinking about it. The "Great Escape" was done in phases, Jan-Feb (last years report) Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec. for this years report. Blog at horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/thode if you would like a review. Next year Australia:mchappy::mchappy: wife will be along on this one.
Still trying to determine how to get a few years for the ultimate Great Escape, RTW.

Had thought of another presentation that could be useful "Basic electrical testing with Volt Ohm meter". We would need to find several meters and some other stuff.

I'm registered together with a few of our friends. Who else is heading out from Vancouver? :scooter:

Dirtpig 12 May 2010 17:10

Hey Darryl :thumbup1:

There are a few of us coming from the Island this year. Hoping to go up via HWY 3 on the Thursday after work, camp somewhere along the way, and then be at Nakusp by mid day on Friday

Bob if you need a spare meter for the electrical seminar let me know as I will have mine with me and can bring a spare

I'm unemployed as of the end of July, so plan on leaving on the Wed. afternoon to get there for Thurs. afternoon. We plan on heading south a week after the HU meeting.:D

Lonesome George 12 May 2010 20:25

Hi Guys,

I'm starting my RTW trip in Alaska in July. Will be at the meeting (I think I've volunteered to do a talk). Then I'm meeting my wife at Banff (She's flying over from the UK for three weeks) and we're heading towards Vancouver and Vancouver Island. We have relatives near Vancouver and friends on Vancouver Island.

Hope to meet up with you all at the HUBBmeeting and maybe later on Vancouver Island.

Greetings from San Cristobal De Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.

I will probably go as well, from Victoria. But it'll be a last minute thing since my life is kinda up in the air right now.

Grant has asked me to do a presentation on my still ongoing Victoria to Yaviza, Panama, Victoria trip. I'm tempted.
