The current totally-vague plan is to spend a couple of days in Vancouver-proper for the family, a daytrip to Garibaldi or Pemberton kind of area then get cheap weekly accommodation in Nanaimo and travel from there: mostly daytrips, maybe an overnight somewhere on the west coast.

Due to other issues, it's now looking slightly iffy. I'll know more for certain if/when the travel booking is actually approved which should be later this week.
