Yep We're home already. Gotta commitment Moday morning so me and Phansie Had to haul the Brood home early.

Took off from Pt kells friday afternoon at about 4:00. headed up through pemberton and over the HURLEY with a quick stop in 'Squish' to grab a quick bite. The youngest one suddenly yells "Daddy stop!!" and proceeds to vomit up her own body weight! NICE!! She put CHUNKS to shame with that one!

Kev lent us the GPS so even I couldn't get lost. I did anyhow. The GPS threw me some attitude and made me turn into some guy's driveway. But I showed it who was boss, I Turned up the road that I had already passed labled... HURLEY RIVER ROAD! Ran into some pretty good snoebanks at the top of the hurley which really impressed the kids. the road was in REALLY good shape...We were doing about 60 km/h most of the route. The camp site was a breeze to find thanks to the WONDERFUL signs put out by ON THE ZONE!!

Weather was nice, set up the tent (Brand new, still in wrapping... never seen it before) put the little 'uns to bed had some laughs... zonked out.

Morning broke with sunshine and birds singing... got the fire goin', collected fire wood y'know campin stuff. people got up, coffee, regular crap... play with the kids, make fire bigger,... go for a trip up to the bralorne pioneer museum, That was cool. Some REALLY old stuff. Even a sign showing gas prices under 50 cents /litre ( I KID) headed up to an abandoned mine site that is completly demolished... very cool. Off to the ghost town we go.

We park at the trail head and hike in. I'm bringing up the rear, because I like to pace myself (has nothing to do with the extre 20 pounds)The group crosses this "Bridge" so we decide to do the same thing... Oldest kid goes, Wife goes with little one, Here comes my fat ass and BOOM... my leg drops through the plankand I'm three feet shorter. I put my daughter down and these guys are having a good laugh (That's why we're married) I can't get my leg out. I ask for help and what does Phansie say?.... WHERE'S THE CAMERA??.... nice. I got out before she got a picor else someone else would have ended up there!!

Finally got to the ghosttown.. that was unreal.... we even heard a ghost calling out for his long lost friend. we think!!!! (Insert scary music here)Kev is a great tour guide for this place, he was pointing out all kinds of things (That's a house.... there's another house:D) Eirie feeling walking around in there. Sadly my son had the camera and he went along with the people that DIDN'T hike up.... no pics!

three trucks were left after our walk about so we decided to take an impromtu tour or the now reactivated mine in Bralorne. We just rolled in and cruised around.... Then got told "THIS AIN'T NO PLAYGROUND Y'KNOW????" We left...We laughed.

Head back.... make grub...... drag logs.... ME MAKE FIRE... with a lot of help from others.

Dog attacks,burns,boo boos, and bumps. Good time had all around here. Especially the hurricane on sunday morning.Left camp around noon,Got snowed on at the top of the HURLEY, stopped in pemberton to get gas, Stopped in 'squish to get something to eat. Got about 15 mins out of 'squish' youngest one yells "DADDY!!" this time we know what's coming.... we stop... pull her out..... again... she destroys chunk's efforts. Where the hell do they keep all that puke??? Rolled into mission at about 6:30, unpacked, cleaned out truck, dropped off flim, power wash truck, pick up film, sit down here.

Great trip!! First time doing something like that with all the kids (Except the oldest) Big thanks to all up there for making it fun and easy.

I'll shut up now and post a few pics in the morn..... I'm fricken tired, and I smell bad!

was a great time,the old mines at braelorne were pretty cool.sunday's windstorm sorta sucked,but it ended in time for the evening drinking session.had to have me a little hissy fit when the fucking saw didnt want to start but was happy again when it got going.absolutely going there again.

i dont need people to get me,i just need people to get out of my way

if you put 20 grand into a 30 grand buildup,you dont have a $20,000 rig-you're just $10,000 short of having anything.

We had an awesome time!!!!! Thanks to Kevin, Ann and Bruce for saving us a spot under the tarp(even tho we didn't use it[:I]) and letting us use their "kitchen" all weekend! Awesome setup!!!

Special thanks to Ann for the drinks 'specially the Caeser!!!!

Thanks to Tasha and Ann for offering to watch the little ones while we set up!! We didn't make it up there until around 10 pm.[1b]

Ghost towns(I still remember you Kevin), museums, gold mines(active and inactive) all was fantastic!!

Built a DEAN fire(with fireants as well!!!) Thanks to Tom with his lil chainsaw, and Nick B and Blazin Obsession for the log haulin'.

Minor carnage(personal) fell on my butt on the slope coming down from the ghost towns so lots of padding, dog bite and Nick got bitten by fireants(his own fault).

Good to see Debra up there with her hubby and CUTE puppies! Tom, Sharon and Shea. The Zones( thanx for bringing my plate[d]. Wade and Cooter ,the ant-eaters. Redline and his girlfriend(sorry I can't member your names[:I]) BeerBaron Sr.(Shawn you look just like your Dad...right down to the ponytail!!!) NickB and everyone else. Good people good times!!

Can't wait until the next one!!!!!



English chicks can drink Canadian guys under the table!!!
