All right, its that time again. I've invited myself over to PR for a tank tour. They're even ok with it this time :wink:

Sundays are best, we just need to pick a date. Sometime in November to give them a chance to organize (besides I'm in Mexico till Oct 24th :razz:).

So...whos hardcore enough....to brave the ferry anyways :razz:

It's OK Marie, I'll organize it.
Anyone interested in coming to the BIGGER & BETTER Powell River Hardcore Reefkeeper's Society. Bigger because Dave now has a 750g tank to go along with his 300g reef and 90g seahorse tanks, and better because................Well it just is! Take my word for it.
I can pick up anyone from the ferry and get you back to the ferry when you're ready to leave. All we have to do is set a date.
There will be a minimum of 3 visits: Dave's large tanks and incredible new fishes; Marie's awesome coral jungle, and my two tanks. (Between the 3 of us we have over 2000 gallons of SW). We can do lunch, have some beers and talk salty stuff.

Everybody over here is good to go. All we need to do is pick a date. Probably a Sunday is best as most people are off work. I would think early to mid-November would be better as it is not too close to Christmas and weather will possibly be better. So, Nov 1st, 8th, 15th or 22nd. What do you all think?

I just need to get out of town for a few days to recharge & relax. Used to work & live up in PR for 4 years, so going to visit some friends & check out all the great tanks in the area.

Can somebody please remind me of the ferry schedule? It has been a few years since I made that trip and my recollection is that you spend half the day getting there...have 1 hour...then spend the other half of the day getting back.

Is it really possible to come from the Lower Mainland, see tanks and return in one day?

marie
10-09-2009, 11:04 PM
It is possible to come up, spend 4 or 5 hours and then head back to vancouver but it does make for a really long day

Just came back from PR & saw these tanks. Well worth the trip.

Great friends, great reefers & great hospitality.

Brad, I would highly recommend that you plan on doing an overnighter rather than a day trip. If you do a day trip, you can catch the first ferry (7:20am) and come back on the last connecting ferry (leave PR 5:25pm). You would end up getting into Pr around 11:40am and back into the Lower Mainland around 9:30pm. This would give you a max. of 4 1/2 hours in town before rushing back to the ferry at Saltery Bay.

Better off going up on Saturday and come down mid-afternoon on Sunday.

Just a suggestion from someone whose done this commute literally 100s of times since 1997.

Would those people coming Sunday (Nov. 8th) please PM me and let me know what time you will be arriving or what ferry you will be on so I know when to pick you up and so I can set the agenda.
We will be visiting Dave's (Mrfish55) new 750g FOWLR with those incredibly large and beautiful fish, as well as his in-wall 300g reef; Marie's splendid SPS dominated 175g, (with the famous Doofus), and her 65g; and my 90g corner reef and 225g reef. We'll also do lunch and/or dinner. :drinking:

It's a BC ferries conspiracy, they don't want you to get your power cords for your lights. we can reschedule the tour and if you need those cords, I can allways ship.

christyf5
11-28-2009, 05:12 PM

Anyone up for next Sunday Dec 2 (pending the ferries aren't cancelled again?)
