Tomorrow I head over to Vancouver Island and two nights and three days at Yellowpoint Lodge near Ladysmith BC - it's all part of the Friends of Yellowpoint Lodge AGM - we are a volunteer organization that helps with a few extras projects for the keeping of the Lodge in great shape etc.
I am keeping an eye on the weather as it is expected to change for the worse tomorrow - it is cooling down - at present looks like snow won't be a major problem - it also will be be first time on the ferries since they dropped the rates by 1/3 for the next two months - that will save me about $40.00 and with gas at $0. 82 a liter that also has saved me some money.
As for today - I took my new bike in for it's 20 hour maintenance check and will be leaving shortly to go and pick it up across the Burrard Bridge and then it supper with the Big One at the Slocan Restaurant.
Still need to pack for the weekend trip but that shouldn't take too long - will need some of the cold weather clothing as most of our work projects will be outdoors although one of the bigger projects is the decorating of the Lodge's Christmas tree which will take a crew of a dozen or so the entire day - they also make ceder wreaths which we attach lights to and mount at various places in the lodge.
