[36] Was a great trip

Sooo many good memories of great weather, good friends and some of the most beautiful scenery BC has to offer

but 1st and foremost i big thank you for kevin and ann for all the work, time and effort you guys put in to make this trip happen . we are in your debt and hope you understand the magnitude of our appreaction ......Thank you[cheers]

the trip was 500 km from door to beach with 420 of road 60 of gravel and 20 of trail

was a little stressfull on the way for us with the concern of overheating .....but the dakota did great and got us there and back with out a single problem.

heres most of the group at the summit of the big ass climb

the only issue any of us had was a tire blow out on kevins trailer in the last 10 k from the beach

but we made it and were happy to see that everything was just like we left it last year[36]

so we set up camp for the next 11 days
