It was our 2 year anniversary and Lee Ann really needed a get-away. We made plans with the Reds to make a trip to Skookumchuck hotsprings for a few nights then they would go on to Whistler for the weekend. We left wednesday and met in Pemberton before heading on to the gravel. It was dark when we hit the FSR so we aired down and made the mad dash to the tubs.

With camp set up we made a feast then hit the tubs. The feasts kept coming with eggs bennie and hash browns for breakie, spaghetti, and appies at every turn. Hey Reuben do you want some curry prawns?[f]

Thursday was a great day of wood gathering and tubbing and lots of food[36] In under 40 minutes we turned our wood haul into the wood pile of envy around the campground.

Reece and Sue showed up around midnight and it was time for more appies.

On Friday everyone packed up and headed out. Lee Ann and I were going to find some where on the lake to camp but found ourselves missing the tubs. So back we went until Sunday. We did a bit of traveling and sight seeing but with Lee Ann in her last month we didn't do much trail finding.

All in All it was a great trip and nice to get away for so long.

Love that place. Used to be my hotspring of choice when I lived on the north shore. Heard it had changed a bit in the last few years, still looks the same though. Took my pregnant wife up once and she didn't much care for the road, we were driving a jetta though.LOL Nice pics![cheers]

it's actually a very nice site. The member of the band that takes care of it great. Reuben made a comment to me about not a piece of glass or garbage being around the entire camp ground and hes right. They drain the tubs and clean them every moring which is needed with all the turn over the tubs have everyday.

They charge you $5 per person and $10 for the vehicle. I was very suprised but honestly they are doing a great up keep and it's worth it(and I'm very reluctant to pay for camping). They lock the gate and you can't get out until 8am and they don't allow night run dips as well (if you come in you have to stay and pay)

This was the first time I actually paid attention to the drive up and it's very simple. I can't see anyone having any issues on the drive up.
