Hadn't the trusty old book around for a while but phoned HelloBC and had a copy mailed to me.
Still much the same format but smaller font/more adds make for a cluttered look (maybe that's just me though).
Many smaller operations I know well have opted out altogether I suppose the price has gone up and websites are cheaper/offer more exposure.
This leaves the book a bit sparse in coverage for some areas it seems like lots of campgrounds included and little else.
Gone are the days when I could take to the road with my truck/fishing rods some food/money and the Accommodations Guide now I'd need an I-phone or Blackberry to be sure of a place to stay at the end of the day.
I suppose smaller Visitors Bureaux will pick up some of the slack in that regard but it's my experience that a person has to know what questions to ask in order to receive useful info from many of those places.
Nothing stays the same forever.....Edited: 04 March 2010, 00:35
