Vancouver Island Trail Thru-hike

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.

Congratulations Nick and Rebecca! This is a wonderful achievement, especially with the extreme heat at times this summer. I’m sure your experiences and feedback will be of real help to the Vancouver Island Trail Association too.
Let’s keep in touch of how and when to share your film when it is ready. No rush of course, but we can fairly easily schedule an occasion for this sometime in 2022. Looking forward to that!
