CANADA Travel Guide: Vancouver to Clearwater | Little Grey Box

Let's do this What are we doing? We're stocking up at Walmart We're stocking up at Walmart for a couple of weeks of hell Living like animals out in the wild Serious question and I really want you to take your time to think about the answer Do we or do we not need an emoji pinata? Definately not Look at all our food, yaaaaaaas Okay, we're just packing up the car which is packed! Do you wanna hand? First rule of camping is don't be hero Welcome to W10, she's looking beautifultoday we've just invested in an air mattress from Walmart and let me tellyou.

.

.

few happy campers so what we did was we went to a thrift store the ValueVillage and we bought all of our cooking supplies secondhand and picked up acooler from Walmart this campsite is gorgeous it is only $20 per night Iwould say we spent about $200-$250 dollars on campingsupplies all our bedding stacked up to the side there we brought sleeping bagswe just got a little one person cook stove.

.

sorry, one burner cook stove here.

.

.

great.

Tarp just in case it rains Little toaster up the back there was only acouple of dollars heavy bass kettle, propane, disinfectantwipes, washing up gear, bug spray of course How's the serenity.

Look at the view.

It's just incredible and for anyone on a budget – It's a good option right?- absolutely We made it to Whistler finally, we're just going to walk around the village a little bit we packed our lunch, we made some wraps when we were having breakfast this morning just to save a little bit money so we're going to find somewherenice to sit, just two bros having a snack Oh yes, look at that One for you Salad wraps.

Yeah I was insidethat pub only a couple of nights ago taking care of a lot of very drunk people How times have changed now I'm outside eating sandwiches out of a bag Now we are doing an epic, super budget road trip all the way from Vancouver out toCalgary and today we have set off on really the mountainous.

.

.

the proper start ofour journey.

So we're headed to Clearwater we're going to start checking out someof the gorgeous waterfalls and we are going to set up our campsite havesome dinner and just enjoy that camp life you know just YOLO at the campsiteI have a sneaking suspicion they're are no showers at the campsitewhich means it's a lake wash for everybody Just a nice cheeky little swim and maybe some wet wipes in strategic spots – I like that mmmmm, I don't know i feel about that So on the way the Clearwater campgroundI'm just taking Matt to check out a little spot called Spahuts.

Spahats I believeis the First Nations word for black bear correct me if I'm wrong in the commentsYouTube Wait we have to walk around their show maybe some people are filming a show here like an actual show not some shitty use YouTube video like us she looks professional.

Alright so here'smy plan I've been here before my plan is this I'm gonna make Matt walk up to itbut like backwards, we spin him around to the side.

Don't look.

There are stairsyou can look down let's look back Don't look that way! You saw it! You ruined it.

You totally ruined that Did I? Yep, I didn't say it was time to turn around I thought you.

.

.

ummm all right since we last spokewe've been fighting It's been 10 minutes of screaming in the car I hate you Somebody got bit between the eyes yeah possibly it could have been a karma bite – It was not.

.

.

.

.

– from the gods How could it even be a karma bite I was trying to do something nice for you? And I appreciated it, I got it wrong, I didn't realize that you didn't want me turn around.

.

.

obviously I didn't want you to turn.

.

.

I don't know, I don't know what partof don't look left means turn around now Anyway so we've been screaming at each otherin the car Windows were down there's some startled bears in the area someone's got some dashcam footageof me going I told you you ruin everything but we're past it now we've moved past it yeah we've moved on everything so peachy 2 months in every couple that's walked past.

.

.

holding hands I'll tell you what they're not.

.

.

married those are people with an out those are people that don't know what it's like to be shackled close your eyes give me your hand don't ruin it this time just keep your eyes closed and do not look up until I say and this is not me saying it until I say you can look up, alright? don't look up, don't look up, don't look up, I'm not Ok, look now woah! that's.

.

.

there's a rainbow that's incredible it's my favorite double rainbow! We were saying Helmcken is very much like something you wouldexpect to see in Iceland it's stunning it's like all like the rock is allblowin away from the sheer force of the spray and there's moss everywherethere was a rainbow fre sha vacado double rainbow double rainbow double rainbow! Now we're on our way to theClearwater Lake Campground so we're gonna drive right up next to it so we can just set up the tent, pump up the bed just have a good night's sleep keep all of our gearbear safe in the car.

I was planning on doing some burrito bowls for dinner butit's a little bit later it's a quarter to 7:00 I thought we'd be here at 2:00so looks like could be having spaghetti for dinner This place is amazing we were pretty tired before we got here but it's beautiful bought some firewood, Matt's done the tent under siege by mosquitos but I'm energized, this is great I'm really lookingforward to dinner and then campfire and then you guys.

.

.

smores Yaaasss Okay, you you know how we do, gotta add that zuchinni, gotta get those greens you guys I know I say it a lot but Matt and I both vegetarians I'm not one of those people like.

.

.

'Oh I'm vegetarian' I just gotta keep telling you it cuz I worry sometimes people are like.

.

.

'Phoebe, why aren't you eating meat?' I gotta tell you though, one thing I miss is ribs.

.

.

and this barbecue sauce tastes exactly like ribs so I've treated myself to one bottle andthen I'm gonna import like a thousand back to Australia get me if you can quarantine I'll declare them don't worry.

.

.

I love you Australia It's my first effort.

.

.

at a fire clearly not enough kindling there but.

.

.

I'm gonna take a crack at it see how it turns out almost had to resort to burning our itinerary because I almost ran out of newspaper but that's pretty much gonna take hold if I keep chopping up more wood So this is Clearwater um, aptly named that tree can you see right there, that treeright there is under the water we both We both feel like we got this horribly wrong weshould be having two nights here not one maybe if we'd gotten hereearlier in the day it's just disappointing because we only get acouple more hours light to enjoy this and we have to be up and out of here soearly in the morning to make it to Jasper live and learn you guys 2 nights 2 nights in Clearwater, at the Clearwater Lake campground Do yo-self a favour RIP my hopes and dreams for Clearwater Lake Fire update.

.

.

I'm reasonably happy with it.

Our biggest problem now is we don't have enough wood damn we need to findthose Ranger babes they're getting around here in a pickuptruck looking real cool with a tray full of wood and axes okay ladies, you need to avert your gaze cuz what you're about to see is going to turn you right on hot dog, hold me back can I have a go? yeah I don't know how to do it teach me the technique well.

.

the idea is to try and skim some off the side Do you have the details for our travel insurer? You'll be right.

Need some wood chopped I heard yeah! so.

.

.

a little spaghetti bone app the teeth fire in the background compliments of.

.

.

my ma.

.

.

oh look at the lens flare! our lord and saviour how is it good? amazing yaaaaaasss! I've got bad news and worse news the bad news is I can't find the ranger gals to buy any wood so you can't contact them, there's noinformation over there, which is fine I get it, they're wild, they do whatever they want the worst news is around the shower? It's got to do with showering.

It's that the shower has to be paid for and it's $2 to use the shower and the shower only takes 2 dollar coins of which we have.

.

.

zero unless we get some more firewood unless we can get $2 coins off them no one's showering and no ones burning anymore wood you're gonna be cold and filthy We could have a.

.

.

swim in the.

.

.

clear water? it's gonna be freezing, that water is so cold There's no other option I have a very delicate ecosystem and it doesn't take too kindly to an ice-cold shock like that how will i get warm? what if I get hypothermia? I'm not from this continent.

.

.

shut it down Life update, found the rangers bought some more firewood, got a fat stack of toonies and now we about to get toasty in front of the fire and then shower no wet wipe shower okay that's not what people want to see okay talk me through the fire situation.

.

.

do you think you need to stack it up? do you think you need to make a little stack?.
