Dana w Gil Clive

Dana Meise completed his hike across Canada on the Trans Canada Trail Tuesday, December 17, 2013. Since May 2008, Dana has logged 16,500 km (16,000 of which was on the Trans Canada Trail – including 100 km on the Vancouver Island Spine Trail!) to complete the east to west crossing of Canada. In his presentation, held at the Victoria Lawn Bowling Clubhouse, he attributed part of his success to the help he had from many volunteers along the way. Among others, he credited Clive Webber, TCT representative for B.C., with helping him complete the trails in BC.  Clive is also a director of VISTA.
