Some fantastic news to share.
Thank to the registered non-profit charitable organization, Friends of Barkerville - Cariboo Historical Society! Last night, they voted to give a donation of $5000 to the Bonepicker film project.
This marvelous donation will make all the difference to as we travel from destination to destination, filming the stories of Cariboo miners, wherever they roamed, before and after their adventures in Barkerville, British Columbia.
The next phase of the project will take us to Virginia City and Bannack, MT; Pioche and Eureka, NV; Tombstone and Yuma, AZ; just to name a few of the areas we will be visiting in search of the tales we want to tell.
This fascinating film project is the brainchild of Richard Wright, whose capacity to bring innovative, big ideas to fruition, resulted in events like the great re-enactment of the camel trek to Barkerville some years ago. His efforts to focus attention on Barkerville and the goldfields of Cariboo were recognized in 2012 when he was presented with the President's Award from Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association...
Now, it's time to start thinking about packing equipment for our journey! We leave in 2 and a half weeks...

This puts us well over half way to our Phase 2 budget of $8000.
Join the project!
