    1. Hello Zach,
      My wife and I were aboard that craft as quests of Phil and Ann Huston who own and operate the The Chilko Experience, 4 km east from Chilko Lake. We stayed for 7 days and spent 2 of those on the lake. It was nice to see your canoe and some real people as it can be a very quiet place! Phil and Ann are from Omaha Nebraska and built a $ 10 million dollar estate for 12 people! You actually get your own log house to stay in with a his and her ATV parked outside!! A very nice place and we had a great time. I took quite a few pic’s which can be seen here. https://500px.com/jackborno/galleries/chilko-wilderness-experience-resort.
