Beautiful Weekend of fun and adventure. We had 10 trucks come along, 5 did the 3 days, 4 did the 2 days and 1 came just for the 1 day. We had to clear a large log slide off the road, but many hands made light work and we soon had enough cleared to squeeze the Land Rovers through. Camp was set in the saddle at 6500ft and the cool breeze kept the temperature down.

Here are a couple of photos, I will put the rest in the Gallery in the next couple of days. If you have some you would like to share, send them in to roverlanders AT shaw.ca

cheers, Andy

Grrrrrr. I'm piss'd I missed it. I even took the time to mount my winch on the bloody truck last week.

I had my D1 all loaded up Frid night and got me and the dog in the truck and on our way by 7:30 Sat morning. She was cruising along just fine - - - until I got to the hill on Hwy 1 going up by Lynn Valley, when the battery light came on and tach quit. I pulled off at the Lynn Valley exit and popped the hood. Everything looked fine, checked every fuse in both boxes, all good. Damn. Thought I'd take a chance and pop by Rovalution - only to find out they are closed Sat. Same with Hesp. So I headed back home. Almost made it and would have if I hadn't done the Rovalution detour. Had to wait 1.5hr for CAA to tow me the few miles back home.

Popped the alternator and took it to an auto electric shop who were going to test it and told me to come back after lunch. At 1pm I found out the alt really was toast (needed a new rotor that wasn't in stock), so I ordered a rebuilt one a few doors down at Burnaby Auto Parts (great prices, so so service). Unfortunately it didn't show up before closing. Got it Monday morning. Ten min later it was in the truck and she was running fine. And to top it all off, I came down with a summer flu Sunday morning. Typical.

Guess I'm just lucky she didn't quit on me out where you took the pics, or I'd still be there.

Ah well, when's the next run? :bounce:

Well my first overnight outing was a success. The truck made it home in one piece and I'll be getting a new pump soon.

When can we do it again?

Colin

Colin, glad you made it home ok, It will be interesting to know if that noise was all water pump bearing or something else?

cheers,
Andy

Swapped the pump out this evening and gave the rad a good flush. The sound has thankfully disappeared...
