Hi Stewart,

The dates are correct as listed, we tend to avoid stat holiday weekends for club runs for a few reasons. Often people have family commitments where they need to attend family events etc Also the traffic is always a nightmare getting out of and back into the Lower Mainland.
If you can't take a vacation day or sick day (cough, cough) then most of the runs can be shaved down to two days but often would mean longer days of driving.

Hope you can make it out ...

Hi Andrew,

Good to hear, look forward to catching up. Remember, you are the "Boss" .... :wink:

Good morning Andy, I was just wondering if there was any information posted for the Cabin Lake run. I thought I had seen something but can't find it now, maybe I just need more coffee.

Thanks
Christopher and Alison

Note- this run has been modified and moved to mid October, more detail will be posted nearer the date

Hi Christopher,

I will post up the details in the next couple of days for this run. SEE NEW POST FOR UPDATED DETAILS

Basically it will run something like this;

Day 1 - Start at the Whipsaw Trail, run up to Lodestone Lake.
Day 2 - Lodestone to the Coquihalla, Crossing the highway near Murray Lakes and head up and over to Cabin Lake.
Day 3 - Depart Cabin Lake coming out on highway 1 near Boston Bar and head for home via highway 1

As we cross over the highway (Coquihalla) there will be options for doing a two day if you cant manage all three days.

Cheers, Andy

Hey all,

Haven't been out for a long time. Its been a rough year. Sold the big red F150 and still couldn't get a Rover due to the travel trailer requirement but I have a white F150 now. Haha

I would love to get out to the Whipsaw again but depends on some medical stuff.

Feel like having a Ford tag along again?

Gentlemen,

Happy Thanksgiving!

What's the plan? I would like to join the group for the weekend but thinking it may be hard to do both Cabin Lake and Whipsaw as I need to be around Vancouver Friday morning.

Cheers,
Stuart
Tata for now....

Thanks for tolerating the Ford. It should be better than the last one. More articulation and lockers. but its fat....
