It's a smooth run up to Port Alberni today. I've even got phone service, and the GPS seems to be working. Well, no, actually it is NOT so good up around Sproat Lake! This is twenty minutes beyond Port Alberni. The maps are good, but the locator is quite spotty. We make a couple of wrong turns, but find our way in plenty of time.
It's a house concert to kick off the Tour this evening, and we roll in blasting because we can. The help is not impressed. Rather, she is somewhat panic stricken! After peace is restored to Sproat Lake we introduce ourselves, and make ourselves comfortable. Our hosts have not yet arrived home today, so we unpack, sit back, and enjoy the view.
