Re: post up your camping pics

like i said, had some weird things happen. while i was off dicking around on my quad, my wife had a visitor at our campsite. a floatplane came down and landed right in front of her and my son. she could'nt take any pictures, cause i had the camera, but she did have her old sony handycam and made a vid of him taking off and leaving. as her sony is at least 7 yrs old (vids on there i had never seen, from 7 yrs ago...lol) we have to figure out how to get it on the computer first, then i can show it
why did he land? was going around the backcountry warning everyone to clear out because of a forest fire. with only one way in and one way out, we took his advice and headed out. started getting smoky, puts a little fire (bad pun...) in your rear when you start smelling it too
clearing outta there

Re: post up your camping pics

and one last weird thing...
just out of Hope BC we were tooling down the old no. 1 highway, (50 mph) when we were startled by a train horn. the world famous Rocky Mountaineer train pulled right up beside us and started tooting his horn and waving at us (usually it's the other way around...lol) i slowed down a little bit so the kid could get us some pics, did ok on the engines, but that was it, none of the coach pics turned out good. as we were working our way up and down the train, prob 300 people were gawking at us and taking pictures...

Re: post up your camping pics

a little spur road, goes down to this bridge (why'd they leave this one??...), goes nowhere, bridge crosses Kwoiek creek and thats it- just ends right there....

Re: post up your camping pics

getting harder to find the trail. also cant seem to find the trail to Kokwaskey Falls, where the river leaves Kokwaskey lake. doesnt look like too many people make it up this way anymore...everything is overgrown and reverting back to nature.

Re: post up your camping pics

with the bridge gone, it will be a real bushwack to get to Stukolait lake, or Kha and Klept. maybe one day load up the 303 and hike the rest of the way in, will not be easy...
on my way back tried to get to Antimony lake and Skihist mountain, one of the tallest around here (almost 10 000 feet)
who ever pays attention to these...

Awesome as usual Dawg! I would love to join you on a trek one day. Get the old 1 tons and campers rolling! This was the rig we took on the off grid fishing trip in northern Sask. No clue why it posted sideways.

Re: post up your camping pics

couple more leaving Kwoiek. kinda disappointed all the roads and trails are gone. it's a long valley with big mountains that requires more than a day on foot. prob wont be back this way for a bit, it's not like how i remembered it....
was quite a chore getting to John George, just for a sandwich, but the beauty and serenity of it was well worth the effort-3rd times a charm....

hey Bilf, that Kodiak sure looks good on there!
no sag with the trailer either...nice!
you would like cruising around the back 40 out here Bilfman, hardly ever run into anyone, good fishing, still got some wildlife kicking around.
fuel costs in the 'ol 1 ton would be brutal to get here.....but ya only live once!

Re: post up your camping pics

going on 6 mos MTCK!
quit mar 18, tough, but i'm done wasting 20 bucks a day on them....
i also learned a couple things today. one, i'm old. not the go-anywhere young buck anymore, just a 50 yr old roofer...hiked close to 30 miles today, with almost 4 of them strait up and down, and man oh man, i'm really feeling it right now. also learned a bear banger can work pretty good too...
our province has been burning big time this yr. the smoke from wildfires has blanketed the valley again, can barely see the mountains around my place

so i decided to get out of the smoke today, and headed up the Coquihalla.
