Contact Chris

I try to check email regularly, but satellite internet can be weather-dependent, so bear with me if it takes a few days to get back to you. Thanks!

    Hi Chris,

    Did you have any luck with the book I referred you to, namely : Arthritis & Common

    Sense?

    Cheers.

      Errata–Book should have been titled: Arthritis & Folk Medicine, by Dr D C Jarvis ?

      I was just too tired to get up & read the Title in my cabinet- had just finished

      Ginty’s Ghost.

      Cheers.

    Chris, I was disappointed every time I went in to see if you had posted anything but I stayed positive that you were well and just busy. It was a joy today to see all the posts for summer 2016. You have been busy but sorry to hear that you had so much rain too. The pictures are wonderful as usual. Good to get some work done on your place, I am mystified about the washing machine–you don’t have an abundance of water, will that be ok? Of course I know you wouldn’t have it if it wasn’t ok. Does it use very little water and do you somehow save and re-use the water that comes out of the machine? Thanks for all the posts and in order too!!

    Dear Chris, your book Diary of a Wilderness Dweller is one of my favourites and I’ve featured it in my latest blog and thought I’d share.

    Chris,
    I just returned from a 5 day trip to Bella Coola and the FABULOUS CHILCOTIN. I shall return in a few weeks and also in September to catch the colours of autumn. I want to visit you. As I was driving by the Miner Lake turnoff, I though to myself…she’s probably down there somewhere! 🙂 See you soon….

    Hello Chris
    I am interested in the property for sale. Is it still available or sold already?

  10. Laurie says:

    I pray that someone will donate to you a huge and well oiled tractor with a snow blade.

  11. jennifer says:

    Hi Chris, I’ve followed your blog and purchased your books for many years. On your 2015 schedule you mention Maple Ridge Library for the 18th of Feb. is this Maple Ridge BC? I’d love to attend if it is with my mom.

    thank you!

    Chris, I’ve just read your latest post. Solstice will soon be here, I know you will rejoice and I hope the weather will soon be more co-operative.

    Best Wishes for another great year ahead. Toni.

  13. Toni Reimer says:

    Those last 5 posts were a great walk back to Nuk Tessli and all the meadows, flowers, mountain’s and waters. It all looks wonderful. I’ve read along with all you’ve done all your years here in B C , I had tears in my eyes from the nostalgia. Nuk Tessli looks good. I think Doran is doing a fine job.

  14. Toni Reimer says:

    Whoa Chris, you are going to be busy here. I too would like your new book, an autographed copy (to go with all the others I have) of course and I don’t mind the mailing cost either. Just the new book I have Lonesome already.

    This blog is working fine for me, I think I like the format and the blinking or whatever you called it when the cursor goes on pictures is gone.

    Keep up the good work. It’s summer now, enjoy.

    Dear Chris,
    I have just read your latest book. “Ginty’s Ghost”.
    I couldn’t put it down, I woke up early (5 a.m.) to finish it.
    I have read some of your other books and your experiences
    are something I can relate to somewhat ( as we have property
    up at Sheridan Lake and come up and live pretty well off the
    land for the summer months ) My question to you is ” Would
    you be writing a book about your experiences with the wwoofers
    at all? It most interesting to me that these people volunteer for
    the experience and your just lodge them and feed them, am I right?
    Would love to have you respond.
    Thanks.
    Esther Young

    Hi Chris:
    I’ve noted you are speaking in both New Westminster and Burnaby this week (Nov 26th) and am wondering if you will have any stops in Surrrey, White Rock or Langley before you head up north once again.

    dear chris,

    do you need help with work next year?
    in autumn i have been working on a farm in switzerland in a wild valley close to an every day changing, roaring, wild river, that reminded me of canada although i have never been there.
    i am very inspired by your blog and ready to spend next year some months in canada.
    looking forward to hear from you, thanks!

    Hi Chris,
    I heard you will be in Courtenay soon but only see Naniamo on your recent tour. Am I not looking in the right place?

  19. Randy Moody says:

    Hi Chris,

    I am the director of the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation of Canada (check out our website) based in Kimberley.
    I have been looking at several of your photo galleries and my guess is that a conversation with you might provide some terrific insights into wildlife use of whitebark pine. We are always trying to get more people involved in our work. In general whitebark seems quite healthy in the Chilcotin but not so in many other areas. I would love to correspond over email when you have a chance.

    Thanks,

    Randy

    Hi, Chris – I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation in Vernon on Thursday evening, purchased ‘Ginty’s Ghost’ and have just now finished reading it. It’s only Sunday!!! Once again, I’ve been captivated and am amazed at what you accomplish. You must be very focussed and organized – and strong!!!! I’m now motivated to do lots more to improve my old farm house and outbuildings while tending to ewes and a couple of miniature donkeys. I live on my own on acreage with all the conveniences – it should be a ‘piece of cake’ – right??? You’re very inspiring. I hope to one day travel into the Chilcotin and points north and when I do, I hope to visit you – after a call ahead, of course. The balance of your books (5) that I haven’t read will be on my Christmas Wish List!
    All the very best in all your future endevors!

    Hi there,

    just came upon your website and find your story incredibly inspiring! I’m in Ontario and have become increasingly interested in wilderness survival. A few questions: how did you learn to survive (and prosper) in the wild? Could you perhaps recommend a good guide for me in how to live in the wilderness? I’ve always been fascinated with survival, especially how to survive a rough canadian winter…I think this has been covered in previous posts, but do we order your books from your website?

    Thanks!

  22. Laura Moore says:

    Hi Chris, I have been wondering how you were and where you were. I saw your new book on BC Ferries (Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo crossing) and picked it up. I’m reading it now. As usual, I’m captivated.
    I tried once to come and see you at Nuk Tessli but decided not to at the last minute. I just checked the site and I see the fellas that have taken it over. I’m certain it will still be a great place to visit, however to be honest you were the draw for me. I admire everything you do and although I’m too busy with work and have been for the last few years (I live and work between North Vancouver and Salt Spring Island) I had always hoped to come up and see you.
    I see your schedule for Vancouver Island in November. I’m adding you to my calendar now. I look forward to finally meeting you.
    Enjoy the winter that has settled in and all the best on your ‘new’ property!

    Laura

    Hello Chris,
    Just finished reading your latest book, got the copy in Bella Coola
    Love finding out the history of the area even though we live in Nelson.
    I am presently in Tatla working with Ruth until the end of this week then back home to Nelson. Thanks again for sharing your stories
    Marcie

  24. Ruth Parfeniuk says:

    I would like to purchase your new book, email details on how to send money etc. Looking forward to reading your latest book!

  25. Debra Olafson says:

    Hi Chris, I have been following your adventures for the past several years and have to say I felt choked up myself reading what you wrote about leaving Nuk Tessli but am happy to see you are on a new adventure. I would very much like to order one of your books from you personally and the $6.00 postage charge is fair exchange for having an autographed copy. Please let me know how I should get the money to you and in what form.
    Thanks so much for sharing your story with so many, Debra

    Hi Chris,
    I was reading about your amazing life experiences, and was hoping that you did presentations for groups. I am a member of the Women’s Institute in Vanderhoof, B.C.
    We believe in education and learning for all women and I believe that you also represent that. Do you do any talks? Would you be interested in sharing some of your experiences with our members?
    Thanks so much for you time.
