"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." ~ Lao Tzu
Being stuck in Port Hardy for the weekend was not too bad. The whole town turned out to throw me a party. FILOMI stands for: FI - fishing, LO - logging, and MI - mining. A local told me that the salmon fishing was the first to crash, then the Island Copper Mine closed in 1995 after 25 years of operation. Now it is only logging and tourism.
