Well, my big BC "Steelhead Valhalla Expedition" has taken on a new twist and turn.

Does anyone know who will run shuttles in the Smithers and surrounding areas? It looks like my big trip is going to be done in my pontoon boat instead. I am trying to see if there is a reliable shuttle service in the area and how much it normally costs. Anyone have any Ideas? Thanks in advance.

This is Smithers northern BC. Distances are far and there are very few people per square mile. If you are needing shuttle from your take-out back to your car I have 2 suggestions.

1 Plant a bicycle in the bush at the take-out. lock it if you feel it is needed. ride back to your vehicle

2 Hide your boat in the bush and hitch hike back to your car.

Depending on where you are most likely your stuff cached in the bush will be fine. And hopefully there will be some traffic for a ride. Also you can choose your drifts so that the distances between car and boat are managable.
