    I have been playing more hockey, therefore drinking more beer

    My behavior is still poor

    I'm quite looking forward to it... I've booked the rooms now, so I really am good to go!

    (And the bike still has the scratches from BCBTR2, so I don't need to be too careful! :evil )

    - Bruce.

    Oh, and if there is a Vancouver group heading up on the 18th, I'm up for that too...

    Rooms all booked for Gravel Eater and myself. Now it is just waiting for the snow to melt.

    Just a note, all the rooms were gone at the Hitchin Post in Mount Currie, They put us in a Cabin, sounds neat.

    Edmonton crew, we should have a get together to discuss travel. I am thinking two days to ride to Clinton ??? I know I'm a wimp.

    Now that the Hitching Post is all booked up, you will have to go into Pemberton to find rooms. Maybe try the Pemberton Hotel or one of the B&Bs.

    All the snow piled everywhere only makes the anticipation more intense for this event.

    As usual, Manxman has chosen a fantastic route. I really appreciate the hours of route checking & organizing the Manxman does. He never asks for any help or complains about setting everything up. Much thought goes into every section to try to ensure everyone can make it and enjoy the ride.I for one, thank him for all the hard work he does. :clap :clap

    I can't really take any credit for the planning, but I will be there to assist and guide the riders along.

    I will post a few pics from the routes from time to time to keep everyone on edge.

    Manxman and dr650bc,

    Thanks once again for organizing what appears to be a fantastic ride through beautiful British Columbia.

    Please put me on the "in" list - gonna do everything i can to make it.

    I was able to get rooms at the Caribou and Logan Lake Lodges, but the Hitching Post in Mt. Currie was booked so it looks like I'll try to find something in Pemberton for Friday night.

    Looking forward to BCBTR4!!! :thumb

    Happy Trails...
