Hi Guys...

We have two options...

Depending on work, I can get away about 1-2 pm on Thursday so,...'




Kelly lake route..

this will bring us in on the east side of the slide, we will have to cross it one way or another to get to mud lakes..

1. we can go to Kelly lake Thursday afternoon, leaving Friday to get to the slide and figure a way around it with a final destination of Swartz or mud for Friday afternoon. this will allow for some relaxing time sat and setting up the smoker for a nice dinner on Sunday drive home via the Hurley Monday

this will allow people to drive up and meet us if they wish on sat or Sunday.

Via Gold Bridge

drive directly to mud lakes Thursday afternoon, leaving all weekend to check things out and get to the slide from the west side.

or we can just go Friday via this route..


please chime in on what you guys think is best, when can everyone get away?..

FYI, Labour Day weekend is a regular gathering of motor bikers at Mud Lake.

I might head up there this weekend to ride the KTM, just to get away from the chaos that will be Ironman.

leaving Friday morning is OK, but we need to leave early, its 5 hrs to mud. as follows:
pemberton 2.5hrs
hurley 1,5
mud from gold bridge about 1hr

we can just go up there, there are lots of places to camp, we can go to swartzh or just past there by the creeks.

or explore and find a place.

how early can yo leave?

i can leave very early as i'll have the truck packed this weekend. just have to unplug the fridge and leave. :D

cant speak for chris or raz. i'll give them a call tonight and see what they say.

exploring the area would be awsome and if we do decide to do it to find a camping spot, we should leave as early as possible.
