Looks like you got everything covered.

A couple garbage bags would be a good idea as well. A tarp or ezup is also a good thing to bring incase of poor weather

Just got my family back from camping out in the middle of nowhere. Some narrow trails (more pin striping now) and some mud later, we found a hidden gem of a spot to call it a night. This was not only both the boys' first time camping, but also my wife's first time. European girls are spoiled I tell ya.

You failed. lol.

It is a 2007 Frontier LE Crew Cab 4x4 long box version. I bought it new, have 5" lift and 33" tires to get me out into the bushes where I like to go. I also have a set of air bags in the bag to prevent my lift springs from sagging while loaded.

It is really poor on gas - 19.8l per 100km. The 4.0l V6 just isn't enough for the size and weight. If I was looking at trucks nowadays, I would consider a full-size for more space in the cab and better mileage. My Frontier is pretty well the same size now as an F150 and still can't turn around on a double wide road.

My wife drives it most of the time, it is my kid hauler - and she feels safe in it. When I get behind the wheel, I tend to go the route less traveled (and my family is okay with that, enjoying the ride).

looks like a great bush truck.

mine does 13.5L/100km right now which isnt too shabby for a 4.0L v6.

for a fullsize i'd probably swing for an eco-boost f150 as i dont tow.

Sayres Lake is a Parks and Trails BC campground managed by the District of Mission and Kwantlen First Nations.

The District of Mission has a firearm discharge bylaw, and violating it carries heavy fines. The bylaw does not outright prohibit shooting at Sayres Lake, but there are conditions. The bylaw is in the final stages of a revision that will outright prohibit shooting at Sayres Lake, however. The window for public input on the issue has closed.

The area directly around sayers lake is RED, meaning no discharge of firearms in the area as its prohibited under municipal bylaw.

Print out a copy of that map so you know where can and cant shoot.

London Drugs has all of their camping gear at 50% right now, including their Coleman products. Picked up a new portable charcoal BBQ yesterday.

Heading out with the kidlets and wife this weekend to camp on the Sunshine Coast. Friends of mine are getting married and they have many acres, so everyone is camping, three bands will be there, going to be a fun weekend.

That's a useful map.

I had thought shooting was permitted at Sayers, but with strict conditions.

The bylaw revision will turn the entire District of Mission red.

Went to roche lake as well. Out of 7 of us we only caught 1 trout. We stayed 3 nights there on the west end of the lake. North side was way to windy.
