Azim, Helen, Donna and I left Calgary on the 9th July for this event on Vancouver Island, in one V8 MGB and one red MG Midget.
Night stops in Kelowna, Sidney and Ladysmith before the show on the 12th made the trip very enjoyable, though the 39c temperatures in the Okanagan had everyone and everything ( except my trusty Midget ) running very hot.

I'm adding points to my Moss Motoring Challenge tally as we go, and we get to enjoy a week at the beach in Parksville and trying to meet up with former Calgary Brit car owners, before heading home next week.

Here are some of the MMC pictures ( which some of you might have seen on Facebook already )

Andy, Donna, Azim, Helen,

We wish you a great trip and good times, it looks great from the photos; Vancouver Island must be a blast in an MG.

Enjoy the great weather while it is raining here in Calgary; the rain almost makes Nicole and I want to hit the road again.

Great pics Andy, thanks for posting! Are you going to check out any of the smaller islands while you are there, or sticking to the big island?

Big island only Dave. We've done Saltspring and the Sunshine Coast on previous trips, and will do the fantastic Duffy Lake road ( BC99 ) from Whistler/Pemberton to Lilloett on the return trip next week.
We did the twisties from Campbell River to Gold River ( BC28 ) yesterday, which was also a blast. The ladies can only take so much being thrown around in a LBC though, so we're back to more leisurely "sightseeing" until the BC99 leg.

Ran into Brian Fiddler ( who did the BritsBest art work for several years ) in Campbell River ( actually he chased us down..........saw us driving through town as we headed out onto the Gold River highway), which gave us the chance for a quick visit and a Moss Motoring Challenge photo op with him and his tow truck.
No pics of the rest of that trip, but is was a lot of fun. No, my car was not broken. It has been trouble free he entire trip, and averaged just about 35mpg. Haven't even had to add any oil yet.thumbs up
