    We had an JVC HD cam, and then the VHoldR Contour for the Helmet Cam.

    The Kangaroo sign was after the Y of confusion (for us of least) heading towards the tighter double-track road skirting the park. Only noticed it when we stopped to grab a couple shots and a bit of water.

    I'd love a copy of the route as well, and my thanks in advance also.

    I hope to make it out for next year.

    Can someone please explain to me how to get onto the KVR at Brookmere? We took a different road to Tulameen, I think it was the Coalmont Rd. I want to go back and do the KVR section this weekend.

    thanks

    Hey Carel

    Remember where we stopped on the old railway grade. I think you just follow the railway grade. Your coming down to Baker on saturday aren't you?

    Carel,

    When you're at the water tower in Brookmere, just stay on the gravel trail heading southeast (don't get back on the road). The gravel trail where these pics were taken, which is right beside the water tower, is the KVR. You can follow it from Brookmere through Tulameen and all the way to Princeton.

    We made a left turn after that and must have crossed the KVR at that point. Ok I'm up to speed now.
