CANCELLED - 2022 BC Expedition Trip
« on: March 24, 2022, 11:55 AM »
CANCELLED due to not having enough participants.

Will plan to try again next year.  If this is of interest, please let me know if there are dates that you prefer.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Ten years back we ran a week long trip covering three different trails in BC.  The trip report was lost to the old forums, but you can see some photos on the club's photo album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/alre_club/sets/72157665988362869/

My current thoughts are to run the same trails but in the opposite direction.  All the trails are easy to moderate and have little to no overgrowth.  I'm open to other options.  Anyone that is interested let me know and we can discuss options outside of the forums.

My goal at the moment is to set aside the dates and see the level of interest. Let me know by posting here or by private message if you are interested.

The general plan at the moment to allow dates to be set aside.

July 17: Meet and camp somewhere near Keromeos.

July 18: Complete Ashnola/Placer traverse east to west. Camp in Princeton or north end of Whipsaw Trail.

July 19/20: Whipsaw trail north to south.

July 21: Drive up to Enderby, camp at Cooke Creek RS.

July 22: Do Hunter Ridge Trail, west to east.

July 23: Drive home.

That was a great trip too!    I'll throw my hat in the ring for this one again....but I have to clear something for the last weekend first off.    I'll try and confirm in May.   ;)
Cheers, Bill

That looks like a great trip. I’m going to be a tentative yes depending on the dates. I might still be calving into July.

That was a really fun trip last time, some great trails and great company!

I'm down for this trip if you can tolerate a Jeep coming ;) The 127 will not be ready by then.

I dug out the RRC and 90 on Sunday, quite a lot of work will be needed to get either ready. Is this going to be a RRC friendly trip or do I need the 90 ;)

You should be fine with either.

I’ll try and get in contact with everyone this weekend and then put together a group email to expand on the details.

I’ve been tied up with finding a new house but that is all calming down now and can put some time into getting this organized.

Sounds good. You and Johnno can have a competition for most money spent on fuel.
