I'm looking for a fun overnighter for this coming weekend (around courtenay), something not too remote (I will be solo) and where a later start in the day will work (so long drives are potentially out).
Thoughts so far.. Mount Becher, Paradise meadows (Kwai or Circlet Lake). Maybe Bedwell Lake, lack of snow might make that quite doable.
Beach camping could be nice too but I can't think of anything close, and I just did Ripple Rock last week.
One reason for this trip is to test gear. If it pours, then I get to test rain gear and moisture management while backpacking. Another is to get used to packing a full pack.
Any other suggestions?
