I enjoyed your ride report. Sorry about your dad. My friend and I rode the cassiar north bound in ¹7, we had great weather from Prince George to Stewart. Rained when we arrive and the next morning when we headed out. But I loved the remoteness of it. I too wanted to ride to deadlocked, but skipped it because of the weather. I'm going back soon, but might opt to just round trip it to the pass as you did. That's what I want to experience anyway. I'll shoot for late June again.
