Since Jeepnut already posted a great story to go with the pics, I'll just post my pics from Mondays ride with him and Steven! What a great ride, started at Koch Creek near Castlegar, and rode over 180km round trip to the Tillicum mine east of Burton (Arrow lakes)!

I used about 18litres on the first day (200km) and about 16 litres the second day when I was following the pack, not trying break any land/speed records! Works out to about 30mpg I think. Packed 8 extra litres with me and still had reserve (4 litres) at the trucks at the end of the day.

We had planned it for last Monday, but ran out of time. Too many trails to explore! [36] Definitely planning another ride back there, Millie Mack as well as a few other trails we saw. Won't be until Sept long at earliest, busy the next couple of weekends, and heading to Trout lake Aug 24-28! [41] Maybe you could come up there for a day or 2 of riding with us? Going to be exploring around Ferguson and Healy Creek and Howser ridge area.
