Unfortunately, it would put the final nail in any plans we might be able to make for Ruckus this year.
I noticed your post in the Ruckus thread.
How does this bode for a visit to Tofino? Before you decide, let me entice you a bit.
I am scheduling a collection and filmmaking expedition to this island, shown in the foreground from roughly July 18 to 26 (exact schedule might be a day or two on either side).
I gotta tell you Steve, if there was ever a time and place where you'd want to be in Tofino, it's then on this island. A big part of my research and development of pearling occurs near the small island in the lower left portion as well as the reefs to the right. Each of these spots are easily accessible by beautiful boardwalk trails through magnificent historical gardens.
There is a lovely suite above the workshop, where you can stay. Sounds like Josh might hit the Ruckus, but then again he might be enticed to come north instead? I have an extra bed in my cabin, plenty of foamies and places to bunk down around the place.
All you need do, is get here... I'll take care of everything else, so that can make the trip economical for you.
Not sure if you know who Ed Ricketts was, but he spent a lot of time on this island doing his collections, in between his expeditions with John Steinbeck. I'm producing an HD documentary on the man, retracing his footsteps from his books and field notes.
So, what say ye?
And Josh? You know we'd love nothing more than to attend the Ruckus, but this is a really special place.
Gee... I wonder what we'd talk about?
