    I'm packing up the rig and taking the family and some friends to camp in the Bridge River Valley next week. We're leaving the mainland Friday (27th) morning, and not returning until about Thursday the following week.

    If anyone wants to join us, please give me a shout before we leave. If you can't reach me online, ask Cam or Steve for my cell number. It'll be family friendly camping, and we will be exploring and taking some photos of the ghost town(s) too. Good times ahead! :beer:

    Bralorne, Gold Bridge, Gun Lake, Hurley River Road

    LOL! Will do. Any guesses on weight? Think I can break the 7,000 lbs mark?

    My short Cruiser was 6,230 lbs last trip.

    The Hurley is an awful gravel road even with coils - its intolerable with leaf springs.
