Howdy

 

We are lucky enough to be spending Christmas in Victoria and wondered if there are any great Canadian camping, truck or outdoor stores to look for ?

 

I always enjoy seeing different solutions to the same problem and even Canada Tire stores have camping gear seldom seen in the lower 48.

 

Its a different world out there.

While I have not been to their storefront, I've bought stuff online from Peden 4 Wheel Drive in Sydney. They were great to deal with. No idea what their physical location may be like though.

their is also a Mountain Equipment Co-Op in Victoria.

Don’t forget Murchies. Tea & Coffee are important while camping. ;)

Many thanks Gents

 

I will be looking for one of the little hand operated water pumps to fasten directly to 3/5 gallon Alliance jug.

 

I have seen folks using them in CA campgrounds but seldom in the states.

MEC,  Capital Iron Works (been around for years--has great value), Mark Work Wear House for clothing.  I love Canadian Tire, especially in the smaller towns--amazing stuff, I once found a birch bark moose call in Merritt.  Homesick as hell.
