2020 British Columbia X’s


Bought an X
That’s the one.
Took the boy up there for our first camping trip in the X. Stayed at Roger creek recsite.


First Fill-Up (of many)
That's the road that finally did in my driver side wheel bearing and hub assembly a year ago in early November. It is the windiest mountain pass road in all of British Columbia that I have driven. Still safer than some mountain roads in Mexico and Bolivia though.

If folks are vehicle-touring British Columbia, the Duffy Lake Road between Whister-Pemberton and Lillooet should definitely be on the list. Budget lots and lots of time to take it nice and slow.

Incidentally, that 'fishing trip' was a disaster. First, the federal ministry of fisheries shut down the salmon fishery to retention on the day I arrived -- I was hoping to harvest a couple for the hot smoker. Second, the flow went from low and clear to mud flowing through the trees the next day. Something like 120 cubic metres per second to ~800 cm/s. Oh well. One has to learn to roll with the punches on the west coast.

Test Drive
I'm up in PG. Have any of you attended the BCOR or are planning to this year. I have for the past 3 years and hope to get down again this year.

Yes was at BCOR in 2018. Had to miss this year and just waiting on dates for 2020 but really hoping I can be there.

Haven’t made it there yet, usually end up camping somewhere else that weekend. Sure looks like a good time. Maybe this year....
