An almost relaxing overnight stop at our humble abode in Gibsons – a chance to repack and consider the items we don’t have. All of which we resolved in Sechelt: a shout out to Time Out Source for Sports, who had all the great outdoors things that the giant stores in Vancouver no longer have, such as bear spray, hiking food for the back country etc.
Tomorrow we start hiking, so we are making the most of civilization while it is still available. We’re really going to miss the European camino experience of old villages, quirky cafes and bakeries every couple of hours.
Today’s learning: never eat a Lone Wolf bakery pain du chocolat while driving. It’s a long way until a Shopvac is available.
In 2009, we embarked on a one-year family sailing adventure aboard a Grand Soleil 39, "SV Mulan". Our original sailing blog is linked on this site.
In 2017, Susan, Andrew, Sam & Max walked the Camino Frances from St-Jean-Pied-de-Porte to Santiago de Compostella (and rode bikes from Burgos to Leon as a blister recovery strategy), and in 2018 Jack also joined the crew as we waled the northern section of the Camino Portuguese from Porto to S de C.
In 2019 Andrew, accompanied by Max for the first few hundred kms, and Susan for the Tiscan section, walked the via francigena from Canterbury to Rome. That journey is blogged in this site.
This blog is planned as an alternative to the endless instagram posts used previously to communicate with those interested in our travels - although there is a linked instagram account as well!

One thought on “SCT Day zero: in transit”
Hi Andrew and Susan, I hope you have a great trip.
