Mercy sakes, looks like we got us another camping CONVOY!

Time to go camping again! This is a big shout out to all POF'ers and their friends/relatives/kissing cousins who are restless and getting impatient waiting for camping season to start! Come on out, hang out with some old friends, make some new ones, and go home with some great memories!

Living Forest Campground - their motto is, 'the Only Thing We Overlook is the Waterfront'
6 Maki Rd,
Nanaimo, BC

V9R 6N7



on Vancouver Island

**********************************
This is a highly acclaimed campground, and a great place to kick off the camping season, as they have power for those who might want to bring an electric heater. They also have cable and wireless internet. And, although there is a grocery store/pub/liquor store/Tim Horton's within minutes, it really feels like you're out in the wilderness when you're in the campground. There is a good chance the Canucks will still be in the playoffs.....fellow Canuck fans are welcome to join me at my site, and although some camping purists would call this blasphemy, I fully intend to be watching the playoffs at my site with my TV on the picnic table, with a campfire going, while I work on improving my attitude by self-medicating with Harvey Wallbangers, especially if Luongo once again becomes unable to stop a beach ball...lol lol. Non Canucks fans may join me too, just don't be surprised if you don't feel a lot of love coming from me if your team beats my beloved Canucks, lol.



This campground has a quiet time which goes from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.....please respect this, as they will shut us down, and I would like to be welcome to come back here again! PLEASE excercise common sense and do not over-indulge or disturb other campers, and keep noise at all times to reasonable levels. Other rules of note are....campfires must be out by 11pm, and no outside music allowed in the park. They are not hard and fast on these rules, but if we get complaints, don't be surprised if you/we get a visit from security. So this may not be the kind of event for someone looking to come out and party hearty until the wee hours of the morning while having heavy metal blasting from your ghetto blaster lol.

All the information about the campground is online at the Living Forest web site above: Directions, site map, pricing for various types of sites from treed tent sites all the way to luxury camping suites for those generator types (RV serviced pull-throughs in case you got excited) Please do not message me with questions that are easily answered at the campground web site.....I don't take kindly to stupid questions....lol.

If you'd like to book online, they have that capablilty - just go to http://www.livingforest.com/ , or call them directly at 250-755-1755! Availability should not be an issue - lots of sites at this time of year. Easy access for islanders and mainlanders.

Bring all the gear, food, poison you need to be self-sufficient in your own camp site. Bring a kayak if you have one, just don't expect me to go with you, lol. Bring a camping chair (essential!!!)....We'll probably have a communal fire...we may also have a pot luck dinner Saturday night....so bring something for yourself to barbeque and a potluck dish to share that night...salad, dessert, veggies, potato/rice dish, your special camping treat - whatever. If you want to come, but have little or no gear, let me know, and I will try to hook you up with someone willing to share. You may also post your requests/hints/suggestions/ on the event thread. I will do my best to help you, but please remember this is a free site/event, I am just a volunteer, I am not profiting from this is any way shape or form, and in no way am I associated with Living Forest except as a patron.

Upon arrival, stop by site #89 to see me, Sheriff_of_Nottingham, look for a red and white '73 Volkswagen Westfalia....Any questions? Send me a message or post it here. I'm looking for cohosts, so if you're up for it, let me know!

Can't wait to meet you all! 10-4 good buddy's, now it's time to put the hammer down and book your site now!

Awesome. I am so glad that there will be camping on Vancouver Island this year. Thank you so much for planning it.

I may only be able to come for one night because of a POF event in Courtenay on Saturday night that is already planned.

Looking forward to meeting some new friends and testing my luck at the "pot luck". Hope for sunshine but a little rain won't be a problem for me. Sailboat is still in the back yard so have to use my land yacht.

How far away is Sun's Noodle Bar? Can I walk from the campsite? Once set up, I don't want to move my rig.

I am sure you can walk it , but since I'm not quite sure how far down Maki road the campground is I won't swear to it, I think a few people will be going to the dinner so car pooling should be an option

k, well the weather is not looking like it's going to be the best, but won't be the worst I've ever camped in either...I will have heat, room to play cards inside, TV if anyone's still interested in the playoffs, a big 10 x 10 canopy, with a table, tarps, coffee on for anyone that wants it, a brand new camping bbq, a 10 X 20 shelter for the van....this is a dry run for some more serious camping trips ...thinking about doing another POF campout in early June at a BC Forest Service campground up Campbell River way, maybe even Gold River.
