Smartstream, waaaah! You're making this still scared witless behind the wheel newbie cry. Every hill looks like Everest to me right now!

massey, thanks for link. It's your neck of the woods. Can you recommend some RV parks on the island?

We traveled with a set of these cookware-for-toaster-ovens when we had our first RV---a 77 Barth. No oven, propane burners I was afraid to use. No room for a toaster oven in the Interstate, but I still have the cookware.

2 weeks on the road with grandkids and a dog---no problem. I could cook and bake anything with a toaster oven and an electric skillet!

Doglady, the one cup method makes the second layer a little thin. Some think the second layer is the best part of the bar.

I've always wanted to try some vanilla pudding with extra butter for the middle layer to cut down sweetness w/o sacrificing volume.

InsideOut, custard powder is a big thing in the UK and Australia. In Canada, you'll find it where the pudding/jello mixes are. The most popular brand is Brid's. I'm sure most American supermarkets will have it (perhaps under another brand).

Goldstream Provincial Park

This is a great provincial campground between Victoria and the Malahat. No restrictions on length (like most of our parks) and hot showers!

Check out this link. Beautiful! I remember camping there as a kid with a tent.

Custard Powder
I have seen it in the packets/boxes fairly often, and sometimes the tin-shaped thingy, but never in rural areas, only fairly large cities. Bird's has a different consistency from actual custard, too, so depending on what it is you're making, substituting real custard doesn't always work. (Don't ask how I know.)

Sorry, I'm not going to be much help as we usually boondock on the Island. Having worked in the bus and trucking industry for 49 years, I know a few choice spots that I keep to myself.

One of the high end spots for fishing and whale watching is:
Telegraph Cove Resort / North Vancouver Island Whale Watching / Salmon Fishing and Camping

Another good site for out of the way places in the Province is:

BC Hydro - Recreation Areas

There are many more in each community so just do a search on Google.

We will be traveling the Island almost exclusively this year so say hello if you see us.

Dave

If you can't find custard powder, it's pretty easy to make from scratch:

Thanks Dave. We have had a lot of fun in that car. I think that tour was Sept. 2009. No we have never had a problem with Nanaimo Bars melting in the car, they are normally eaten long before they ever get to the car. We belong to a club nick-named the "Eat And Drive Club."

Cheers, Dan
