Hey everyone! My partner Rebecca Michelle and I just finished our thru-hike of the Vancouver Island Trail, minus the Beaufort Mountains (closed due to fire hazard) and the Bonanza Range (which we judged too incomplete and difficult for our comfort level). The project was generously assisted by the ACCVI’s Memorial Fund.
We took a lot of video that we plan to edit into a short film detailing our experience, including management of Type 1 Diabetes in the backcountry, and the relationship between human activity and natural processes on the Island. This project is at least several months away but watch this space for updates!
If anyone would like more detailed information or have specific questions about the trip, please don’t hesitate to ask.
