Thanks everyone for the hospitality. I'm amazed at the number of responses so quickly. I've watched the forum for over a year and searched it for answers to my questions but never posted one. I think I'm pretty prepared but am happy to have the tips as there is always something I hadn't thought of.
The first time I heard the 'fill-up every chance you get' advice I thought someone was just extra cautious, but now that I've heard it from almost everyone I talk to I'll be sure to follow that advice.
Deet is on my list as is Bear Spray too... but despite having a grandfather who was an avid hunter and trapshooter I don't own a rifle so wont be bringing one. I must admit Grizzlies are my biggest fear. I hike here and black bears don't concern me but Grizzlies are a whole different ball park.
I've eaten at Double G's as I spent a summer working at Northern Rockies Lodge in Muncho Lake. I've driven from Fort St. John to Watson lake that summer so have a bit of an idea what I'm getting in to, though I've never towed my boler
that far, I've only had it a year and mainly just around the central island here.
I've added the clear packing tape that is something I hadn't thought of.
The dog leash story made me laugh... I have a dog aggressive dog that only gets off leash on logging roads in the middle of no-where I thought this would be her summer to get lots of free roaming in.... but your little story has made me rethink that Roger.
Although I wont be doing the Capilano Campground this trip I'm happy for the tip for future reference.
