Hey Banana slug!
I've lived in the puddle all my life.... You shall enjoy it greatly, for the outdoors is what it has to offer! As for a club......I'm thinking once you arrive go talk to the guys down at Red Shreds bike and board shop. They know the area, trails and local activities the best. I've even ran into them up in the mountains when they are biking! (Big Creek Park) Good luck.....you have some amazing country all around you without the crowds!
For example, look at the recent 'Honeymoon' post. Bella Coola area is spectacular. .....and we are not even getting to the Cariboo Mt. side and what it offers. Cheers!
