4 Day Peak to Peak Off-Road Adventure - 27-30 July

#1 Post by ANDYD » Mon Jul 15, 2019 12:25 am

Hi All,
A few years ago we did a "Peak to Peak adventure", this year we will revisit a similar route, only in reverse direction :shock:
So the basic 4 day route is below, there is a 3 day option (with a long drive home from Carpenter Lake) if you cant get the Tuesday off work.
This is a breath-taking, beautiful area to explore, wilderness areas, no facilities, 4 day off road adventure.
So... go see the "Boss" get your days booked off, get your Land Rover ready and lets see you out there....

Peak to Peak 4 Day Off-Road Adventure – Sat 27th to Tue 30th July 2019
Saturday Day 1 – Meet at Tim Hortons in Squamish (Industrial Way) at 9am, departing at 9.30am sharp, come early for breakfast / fuel etc.. Depart Squamish to Pavilion Mountain Peak to Pear Lake Camp (near Kelly Lake)
Sunday Day 2 – Departing Pear Lake camp at 9am, heading through Edge Hills Prov Park to the Big Bar Grand Canyon, using the free ferry to cross the river then crossing over China Head Mountain Peak to the Davy Jones Creek Camp.
Monday Day 3 – 9am depart Davy Creek camp for Poison Mountain Peak, then onto Mud Lakes and down to Carpenter Lake Camp
Tuesday Day 4 – 9am depart Carpenter Lake camp, south to the old Bralorne Mines, then down Hurley Pass to Pemberton and back to Squamish
Note- Drivers must be Rover-Landers Members
Bring everything you need for the 4 days wilderness camping, no amenities along the way, always a good idea to have spare fuel (the V8's for sure :shock: ). If there is a fire ban I will bring the Propane fire pit, always prepare for cold temperatures at night, hot temperatures during the day. Bring extra water, food, bug spray, sunscreen, spare parts and tool kit and of course a comfortable camp chair.
More details will be added over the next week,
Cheers,
Andy

I don’t have a “boss” so I’ll be there for entire trip, sounds great and areas I’ve not been to.

I'm in Andy and looking forward to it. Too bad some of you can't make it. I recommend you just blow off other responsibilities and come anyway. Andy will provide sick notes for those who need them.

Good to see some early interest, sorry to those who cant make that weekend. Unfortunately the selected dates can never work for everyone.

I have added some more details to the first post. The long range weather forecast is looking good for that weekend 8)

Hi Andy I will be there for all 4 days if I am back from prospecting in Merritt in time.

How many Km do you think the whole loop will be?

Hi Colin,

As a rough guide, from the last petrol station at Lillooet to the next petrol station at Pemberton its approx 240kms off-road driving over the 4 days.
Off-road travel always seems to eat fuel faster, so its always a good idea to bring along some extra.
Coming from Merritt you will likely prefer to come through Lytton and meet us at Lillooet or even at Pear Lake?

cheers
Andy

Great trip ! Thanks for getting it organized Andy

The road along Mud lakes Image

A couple of youtube links to the fun getting down to Mud lakes, Bjorn did a great job spotting and guiding, made my trip down rather sedate and mild.

Just got back from my detour to Sloquet Hot Springs. Was a nice side trip and I got to sleep in to 8AM this morning <g>. Had a great time with the group and was only scared out of my pants once or twice. Looking forward to the next adventure. Thanks to all for participating and making for a great run.

A dozen Land Rovers set off from Squamish to explore the beautiful British Columbia wilderness, 3 nights, 4 days on the Peak 2 Peak off-road adventure. The journey took us to 3 amazing peaks that were each over 6500ft in elevation. Pavilion Mountain, China Head Mountain and Poison Mountain. In between the mountain tops we dropped into the massive Fraser River Canyon, boarded the Big Bar Reaction ferry, traversed the tiny ledges along Davy Jones Creek, waded through the flooded roads of Mud Lakes and explored the old Pioneer Mine ghost town near Bralorne.
Wonderful adventure with a great group of Rover-Landers, thanks for coming along to share the experience.
We were also lucky to have a keen "movie man" along for the ride so there should be a trip movie coming soon!

Cheers
Andy

Finally did the post trip inspection, and my oil drain plug was just over hand tight. Found by the small puddle of oil on the driveway, need to replace the "new"crush washer".

The right side engine mount is dead, I knew it would likely be before heading out, the replacement is in my office.

Other than some new brush rash everything else came through great.

Has anyone heard from Craig ?

The trailer looks awesome. The finished project will be epic. Thanks so much to Ricardo. Maybe the club should hire him, ha, ha. Could boost club membership but then we don't really want 30 cars showing up for a run do we?

There have not been many, which I'm aware of, but there have been a few excellently produced videos of club runs in the past and this one looks as though it will be no exception. Certainly the subject matter is worthy of the endeavour.

Hi Bjorn,

You were brave getting in front of Gord's P38 in that video clip above :shock:
The guys at the back of the convoy said you did a good job of spotting them down the V gulch!
Welcome aboard. Colin must have a spare Land Rover you can borrow :wink:
