We travel all over. A lot. We cover Alberta, sneak into Saskatchewan, and dip into British Columbia. If we had our way, we’d even go even further afield. On these numerous road trips we keep busy playing the Boler spotting game. The goal is to “spot” one of these little egg shaped trailers out in the wild before anyone else in the car does. It’s pretty simple really – see a Boler, shout “Boler” and collect the points. The value of the latter is based on many factors including the difficulty in spotting. For example, a sort of hidden one is worth more than one in the open (we use a one to ten scale). One day we’ll publish the complete rules – we’re still sort of formulating them.
Seen here, on a side street in Cranbrook BC, as we headed out to explore a nearby mine (a project for the ministry of mines) is a four pointer (two for rarity – it’s a common model – one for ease of find – no difficulty at all – and one for setting – nothing special in that regard). So while not a spectacular find, it’s still a find none the less. This one was seen in October 2015. Damn, we’re behind!
That mine we explored this same trip…
Upper workings of the St Eugene.
Boler: A small cute-as-a-bug fibreglass travel trailer made in Canada in the 1970s and 80s. We make a fun game spotting them on our road trips adventures. We also include other similar trailers here, those from other manufacturers who are close in appearance or configuration to Bolers.
