Up close and personal, the Powell River region has special meaning to those who explore it in their off-road vehicles. In the spirit of remote living and recreation off the beaten track, we journey to places only accessible by machines fit for rough terrain. For the author, all journeys begin and end on Powell Lake, where his floating cabin serves as home base for ventures to places we go for reasons even we ourselves find difficult to understand. Still, we go, returning again and again to the sublime beauty of places where the mountains drop into the sea.
On the other side of 'Up the Main' and after' Farther Up the Main,' the author of 12 books in the series entitled 'Coastal British Columbia Stories' takes you to places that include a mix of new destinations and old favourites – Goat Island, Theodosia Valley, Elk Lake, Chippewa Bay, and the head of Powell Lake. Keep on riding, farther and beyond!
