    where you at now??

    typical living situation in an orchard lifestyle is a spot to pitch your tent , a spot to make a fire, a hose and an outhouse. some also have living room trailers and kitchen trailers and shower houses :D :D

    working on vineyards never (say never) provides even a camp spot, so that can make it a little tougher so i'd say either find a sweet stealthy beach spot of your own to claim or find somebody generous with a yard, or camp on an orchard anyways, fuck you'll blend right in. one time i actually paid for a camp site which was sweet they have outlets and showers too.

    whichever way you do it, i guarantee a lot of beaches and wine and summertime-feelin-fine jam sessions and bonfire parties with loads of travellers.

    so im gonna come visit in the summer hahahah

    French hill is in Osoyoos, but I don't think that you want to go there, I was in the area last summer and apparently you'll get fined 200$ If you head up there. The thing is that the locals got fed up with the grass fires, and garbage, and on that note I got a few sideways glances just for wearing a backpack too. Bum station, by the airport is probably still going ( there isn't a lot of room there though), and there is an other kick ass coolie further up the trail, just be careful of the cacti. If you do that walk drunk and in the middle of the night, your life will suck.

    It's a little late in the season so you probably figured it out by now but loose bay in Oliver is where the season kicks off these days.

    Ahoy! just wanted to write back! I actually made it across Candada from Niagara Falls eventually to Vancouver Island. Worked 6 or 7 weeks of the Cherry harvest in the Okanagan, without a work visa, living in the "crusty" orchard in Oliver. AND IT WAS AMAZING! I will totally be there next year, well prepared, to rejoin so many wonderful Quebec'r friends! Tabarnak!

    Sooke is a nice area to relax for a couple days. It has the potholes, which was already mentioned. There are also lots of hiking trails, including one that leads to the abandoned fire tower on mt quimper. If you like being near the ocean, whiffin spit, French beach, china beach are good areas. You can catch a 50/61 bus from Victoria to sooke for $2.50, or a day pass for $5.00. You can find spots to camp out for a night or two for free, or there is a couple campgrounds.
