Great day for wheeling. 5 trucks headed to ER, when we arrived there were new rocks inplace next to the gate. Still passable.

The driveshaft is in good shape, but the output shaft on the Tcase snaped. Easy on the go pedal, and bang! All done for the day.

Good pictures , we usually park our diesel at the gate[ because its too long to get thru the trees onto the road ] and hike up with our 2 dogs and yes it can be hard on the lungs even hiking up there at times , we usually hike up C6 which cuts thru the time getting to Cypress Lake by about 20 minutes but its more of an incline . HAs anyone done the loop from lookout to the "white rock" and back to Cypress lake and is there any trails that take you to a lookout over coquitlam lake area?

Its a nice trail and some beautiful sights of the vancouver area from the lookout and you can even hike it if you feel like it [ I have to bug all the younger folks because us old ones seem to hike more then the younger ones[f]] Remember Davis Lake area:D

Haven't been up there since the 80's but recognize the climb up to the ridge like it was weeks ago. I have a question for the people who went to the old ridge (Westwood days). Am I missing out by not going back to have a look? I can only imagine how much housing has infringed on the area but there has to be some good stuff left past the ridge turnoff? Right, wrong, or just nuts? I'd like to get up there sometime this summer, I can't believe I'm already counting free weekends on one hand:(

Of all my friends, I like beer the best!

Greg [wtf]... Where have you been lately [?]

Eagle is alright. Worth the drive to the top anyway. Just make sure you take the trail to the right at the top of the first hill. It's a little more fun..... [cheers]

We use to wheel in Ken dodge power wagon [ and we still have it but it only comes out now in the summer ] at the bottom of the hill late 70's early 80's and it was know as Lansdowne and you could wheel up past the water shed but all thats there now is monster homes that look like noone lives in
