Southern Rockies Exploration Week - 2020 Edition
« on: February 04, 2020, 09:16 AM »
Tentatively set for August 23 to 29 (Sunday to Saturday).

The general plan at the moment (subject to change) is to follow the same overall route as last year in the opposite direction.  Along the way, there are a variety of trails and trail options that we will try out that we did not have time to look at last year.  We will also visit backcountry hot springs as time permits.  There are three possible ones along the route.

The Sunday meetup will be at one of the BC provincial recreation areas along the Kootenay or White rivers south of Kootenay National Park.  This is three hours from Calgary.  We will then start the trip Monday morning with a plan to be able to have the following Saturday free for getting home from the Dutch Creek area (two hours south of Calgary). There will be options for people to leave the trip most days.  There should also be a resupply and refueling opportunity in the middle of the week.

I am planning to attend as well. My challenge is making it to the starting line on time. You mentioned leaving early if you can’t stay the whole week. Will it be possible to join late or might you all be too difficult to track down?

It might be difficult to meet part way. If it is later on the Monday it could be possible. After that it is hard to predict where we will be and there is zero cell coverage anywhere.

Tigger is going through an engine rebuild revival. Hopefully it will be tuned and tweeted for this one. Been five years since it hit the trails.
