Kris and i took his family to my cabin for the weekend, we left maple ridge at 6am sat morning and got there around 1pm to a very very very cold weekend.... it got to -20c at night!!!!!! and we dont have any heat in the cabin except for the fire place and wood stove.... our pipes froze as we poured water down the sink.... that sucked!! but they didnt burst

heres some pictures (i took over 300 photos... i did my best to show only a few...)

on the oposite side of little big bar lake... we went for a hike sat afternoon after we unpacked

it was cold out here that weekend.
a buddy of mine and I did a minimal gear overnighter. in between 10 at night to 9 in the morning it was frikkin cold x2. I had a small pack, and my buddy used a small military vest

otherwise it was a good time testing out gear.

it is better to pack around the sleeping bag, rather than pick the sleeping bag to match the room avalible.
