If you read the newsletter last winter you’d know we were working on getting a mobile sauna over to Gabriola Island. One of our first pre-saunasessions saunasessions was on Gabriola Island back in 1997, so it seemed like a good place to continue with our island invasion plan. Remember our epic New Years mission to Vancouver Island?
Anyway with the beginning of sauna season in September, saunasessions auxiliaries Gabe, Sal and Lincoln hitched up Lincoln’s truck (which smokes almost as much as the Hino) to the trailer containing our original 2001 sauna. The new trailer jack got bent in the removal from yard (and the neighbour’s lawns got some tire treatments),during a a very tricky extraction procedure. A perilous and remarkable ride to Horseshoe Bay elicited many shouts and honks (of support and goodwill, we presume) before the truck and trailer made it on the ferry to Nanaimo and then the Quinsam to Gabriola. This location is fantastic, in the forest, outdoor shower under the moon and the stars. If some sunday you are on Gabriola, or plan to be, contact one of the crew for details on attending a session.
