The Cariboo, Chilcotin and Coast regions of British Columbia constitute one of the few remaining wilderness regions of the world that have not been fully explored or publicized to the outside world. British Columbia is a huge province, and many people who live here have never set foot in any of these regions. The purpose of this project is for me to discover as much as possible about these places and the people who live there, and to share my discoveries with you.
As a professional travel writer, I have had the good fortune to explore many remote regions of the world, from the Himalayas in Asia to the swamps of Louisiana. The farther away from big cities I go, the more excited I get. Unspoiled remote regions possess authenticity, and the people who live there maintain integrity of purpose. They live there because they want a genuine experience from their lives. Technology and luxury have not yet corrupted their lifestyles.
This vast wilderness enfolds unlimited opportunities for discovery for the intrepid traveller. Wild animals roam in freedom. There are mountains to climb, rivers to run, fish to catch, unmatched photography. This is the last true home of the cowboy and Indian, the gold miner, the rancher and wrangler and the hunter.
Join me as I wander this great territory and meet the people who call it home. Enjoy my stories, photos and interviews, and comment on what you learn. I am pleased to report that I have received the assistance of the CCCTA (Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association) with this project, and will be sharing my results with them and other tourism associations. Please know that all the reviews on this site are strictly my own personal opinion, that of a professional traveller who loves to explore the last remaining wild places of the world and – more importantly – to see the creatures that live there and to make friends with the people who call it home.
