On the trek from Tofino to Port Alberni I spotted this little dude out of the corner of my eye, while i was trucking at full speed (full speed in the bus is like 80kms, 50kms on an incline… if I’m lucky). I pulled half onto the shoulder of the highway and threw her in reverse, which maybe wasn’t THAT smart since i was on a curving part of the highway but I just had to see if my instincts were right. Sure enough I found this little black bear just watching watching me. Thankfully my fathers ‘spot a bear and get $5 road trip game skills are still with me. Little Bear, you are rad, thanks for the photo.

Barkley Cafe - Ucluelet, BC
We returned in the AM (after quite a rough night in the van) to the place we parked outside of the night previously to get wifi. Thanks to Abby the local who works at long beach surf shop for not judging me when I jumped out of my van and chased her down the street asking for some sort of help. She offered me her couch, to call her friend who owns a hostel, and made sure I took down her number. Oh and she gave me the password for Barkley’s wifi. It was rad to see her stop by for coffee the next morning and ask why we never came by. Abby of Ucluelet, you are a gem!

Buses + Puppies! My two favorite things!
This is a shot from my ‘bus guys’ place, he is an eccentric hippie-fueled individual living in Mill Bay, Cowichan Valley BC. I’ll be posting a story about him and the bus-heaven he calls home in the next few weeks!
