Went for a drive that looked easy on the map.
It turned out to be a ATV trail for the most part.
Left lots of paint on the alders.
One running board also has a new shape.
Followed the Quesnel river from Likley to Quesnel.
My picture taker/wife was to busy hanging on in the tight places to take any pictures.
Lots of washouts , creeks , and slides.
Went down through some washouts that I wouldnt have made it back out, so I had to keep going.
Fuzzydog have you done this trip?
Came out at a emergency airport in the middle of nowhere!
Then on into Quesnel for dinner and won 700 bucks at the casino.

Top sign says "Hap Bowden International airport" or something similar.

I haven't been there but it sounds similar to the trip made by some guys from PG a couple weeks ago. It's posted on the iclick forum

towards the end of the write up they talk of coming to an airstrip in the middle of nowhere.

Longhorn, we seriously need to hook up sometime and go wheelin together....but then again, it's going to be sledding season soon [36]

If you look on the map it goes from Little lake near Likley to Gravelle Ferry near Quesnel.
It would be harder coming from Quesnel side as there was a couple of ugly spots that werent bad going down but may be a bit hard going up!
