    Another "name from the past" chiming in to hail the West Coast edition of Kilt Kamp! Hoping/planning to attend the contemporary session this time. Bob/bigdad1 (hubby) would tag along for the trip but not the Kamp. We are also planning a month in the UK during April/May 18. . . may be eating ramen by December, but we'll have had a grand year!

    All these Kampers from the past! This has the potential to be an amazing Kilt Kamp. I need to start planning what to bake for breakfasts!

    Do I need to bring Tim Tams?

    Will I be able to try Poutine?

    Poutine is readily available. I don't know of anyplace local that has Tim Tams , so if you would be bereft without them, perhaps you should bring some.

    [Note: After doing some research on Tim Tams, found these possible sources in the area: http://timtamslam.ca/where.php ]

    All good I'm not much of a Tim Tam eater....
    However it is one of those request made by hosts of Aussie guests
    "Bring the Tim Tams"

    Have you not discovered Tim Tams??

    Oh I'm 90% going for the traditional class with Barb

    My wife loves Tim tams, they are available here in BC at some grocery stores. The dark chocolate ones are a favourite but hard to find ☹️
    Great with afternoon tea, before evening scotch 😀

    The tyranny of distance.... we in the Southern Hemisphere can't just decide a few weeks in advance to attend Kilt KAMP unfortunately, so....

    Yes I've just booked my flights.

    All this is rather flexible but does this seem ok?
    - Australia to Honolulu 1-2 nights stay
    - Honolulu to Seattle maybe 1 night stay
    - Seattle to Victoria via clipper ferry with a tour of the Butchart Gardens & a nights stay
    - change to a B&B in Fernwood
    -Kilt Kamp
    - exploring the West Coast of the USA until I'm broke, bored, or over travelling
    - fly from somewhere on the west coast to Hawaii stay a few nights
    - Hawaii to Australia

    Advice, suggestions and other information most welcome.

    Breaking up that very long flight from Australia is a very good idea. You are not only dealing with a 6 or 7 hour time zone difference across the date line but a total swap of seasons. You will leave home in your winter and arrive here in the height of our summer.

    A bit less jet lag if you spend 2 days in Hawaii.

    Wow, you are very organized! I am impressed. The itinerary seems good. One of us can pick you up at the Clipper ferry dock in Victoria.
