Nuts, my rock rails were in a shipping vehicle accident and are delayed to Monday delivery. Now I have to wait until after Whipsaw. :bounce:

Excellent advice on the extra blanket. Looks like Danny will be joining me. See you tomorrow!

Yes, we be departing Whatcom Road at 8am, getting back on highway #1. I will call you on the radio as we depart Whatcom.

It looks like we have half the group meeting at Whatcom Road (7.30am) and half the group meeting at the Whipsaw FSR turnoff (11am)
Weather still looks good, should be a great weekend. Bring an extra blanket for over-night!

See you there ....

cheers, Andy

Home safely after a amazing weekend on the Whipsaw. One of my favourite runs through the Whipsaw. Lots & lots of snow to make it very scenic but not enough to stop us getting through. Great group to share the experience with 8) thanks for coming out.
More photos coming soon....
Cheers,
Andy

Andy, thanks for being the guide extraordinaire! Certainly an enjoyable weekend, albeit a few hairy moments :)

Looking forward to seeing some of the pics.
