It’s obvious that James of Team Bangarang adores his Angus Rowcruiser. But there’s something, or rather someone, he loves more. After making it just shy of Bella Bella, he’s headed home so they can celebrate their anniversary together in person. He says he had a great time, he feels good, and he and his wife will be returning to the BC coast to explore it together.
