I think the BC Government should plow and gravel Gilliard road and the KVR also.


I think the BC government should make a new back-up gravel road south of Lakeshore Rd, past Lake Okanagan Mountain and Rattlesnake Island and on to Penticton.

What do you guys think? A good idea?

Take the Coq. toll money to make a gravel road.

I wonder if I'll still be able to get up Chute Lake for some exploring/wheeling? I was planing on trying later today, the news (at least the broadcast I saw) said they were stopping people from using it to get to Naramata but I wonder if if they'll anyone by who's not trying to use as a highway...

I guess I'll do some research before I drive all that way out there to find out. If anyone else feels like joining I'll be heading about 2/230, pm me and I'll check back here every couple hours...

theres a road that goes out of faulder (behind summerland) its called summerland princeton highway. you go up it to osprey lake and then take a right on trout crossing and it'll take you to princeton main which is the only stoplight in peachland at the highway. if your taking your bronco im sure you'll be fine. i took it in my 5 litre mustang last week when there was no snow
