I think one of the best way is to pack up and set out on a jouney of a life time into the coast mountains. Start in Toba or Bute Inlet and hike all the ridges to Squamish, camp along the way, bring a gun and a video camera....oh and don't forget the snuff. If you did this trip you are bound to get noticed by our pal.....the man of the mountains.
Late may early june seems is a good time, I've done alot of mountaineering in those months and it seems the best time to cover alot of ground, with the snow being stablalized you can avoid alot of the crazy bushwackin. I have walked the north powell divide and south powell divide and crossing over these mountain ridges is alot easier than you would think. It's mostly the rivers that become abit of a challenge, had to strip down and wade across a couple of times.......damn cold. Other times i will fall a tree to cross.
I have done alot of searchin behind powell river, i have seen and heard some interesting things but didn't care to report them. The funny thing is I have never ever seen anyone up there or heard of anyone else in our area looking for sas. The ridges see very few people, anyone who does go up there usually stick to trails n stuff and probably arn't even thinkin about lookin for sas evidence......you could walk right past it, or him if you weren't paying attention.
Well that is a lot of ground to cover, and a lot of risks to take, too, especially all by yourself. You can hang out around Pitt Lake or Harrison Lake (or in between) or in Chilliwack in behind Cheam Mt. and find a lot of interesting things without having to cover so much ground. Also, being on a ridge you are that much easier to see and avoid. But I do admit it would be the trip of a lifetime!
Furthering the commentary, a hot spot used to be the botanical dump in Surrey on 24th. It is gone now, developed into a warehouse district, but once upon a time there was activity. An abandoned quarry provided plenty of cover in addition to the ample foliage. Viewed from above, one can see that the area can be accessed by a series of ravines. These remain undeveloped and are the protected habitat of some salmonoids. When carloads of potatoes, cabbages, onions and turnips arrive in the late summer they become fragrant immediately. Pumpkins arrive by the ton after Halloween, allowing a tremendous amount of calories to the scavenger.
that's the guy. but the info that i have found says he set out from the boise creek trail in squamish. and he figured it would be a six day hike to coquitlam via the mamquam pass. i really don't know why someone would attempt such a thing alone. and i'm a guy who does most things alone. i go on week-long hunting and fishing trips all the time by myself. but i would never try something like that. and with all the technology we have these days, a person need never be out of touch even if they did want to attempt that. and without a firearm for protection? for being apparently "an outdoorsman" he made every mistake there was to be made. it's a very sad thing, but was so easily preventable. i just wish for the family that he is found.
