Getting back to WILD:life

"I'm happy to say that with an assist from a very capable Toyota Camry and more trips on BC Ferries than I typically make in a year, I shared a stellar #microadventure with a couple of good friends."


Inspired by the #microadventure, Naomi D. and a few friends decided to see how many Gulf Islands they could visit in a day. It's ambitious and as folks whose main mode of transport is cycling, it's something they couldn't have attempted without a car. 


Read Naomi's guest post on our blog and find out how Modo's arrival in Victoria helped her and her friends travel to two beautiful parks, and tackle four unique hikes in one day.

Fault Conditions:

What's a fault condition? It's any issue that causes one of the dashboard lights to turn on. Read our Top 5 list of common fault conditions and find out exactly what those lights mean.
