Powell Lake by Barge and Quad

Wayne and I have lived in our float cabin on Powell Lake since 2001. In 2003, our good friend John introduced us to quad riding.

In the beginning, we followed John around as he introduced us to the many logging roads and trails in the Powell River region. At that time, we kept our quads on a trailer in a hangar at the airport, and drove to off-load locations.

In 2012, we tried keeping our quads a short boat ride away from our float cabin.

It made it easier to go riding, but we were limited in the roads and trails we could explore. Plus, they were exposed to the elements.

Thus began our quest for a landing craft to house and transport our quads to all of the roads and trails around Powell and Goat Lakes.

In 2014, we found a perfect 22' barge on Craigslist and quickly bought it sight unseen.

Now our quads can remain at our float cabin, ready in an instant for day trips and camping adventures. We can also maintain them better and protect them from the weather.

In Powell Lake by Barge and Quad, you can join us for quad adventures to destinations on Powell and Goat Lakes accessible only by boat. You will visit unique places where all-terrain vehicles can explore logging roads and trails in picturesque British Columbia. 

Check with your favourite online bookseller or go to www.PowellRiverBooks.com for more ordering information.

    1. Can't wait for some good weather so we can take it out again for a ride. This fall and winter have not been kind to boat travel and quad riding on the lake. - Margy

  3. Thanks Wayne and Margy. I've just downloaded the Kindle edition and am looking forward to a delightful week-end of reading. I can imagine I'm enjoying your scenery and temperatures and maybe forget the heat wave we are experiencing (37 degrees is too hot for anyone to enjoy!)
