    I seem to remember you having a big smile on your face after you parked up on the road after doing that. It was great to have Greg taking pictures there.

    You would only do that crossing if you followed the KVR (right of way) south from Brookmere. It was on the north side of where the road to Coalmount crosses the KVR. Where the trestle was burnt down.

    This during drier times. Water was to the top left in the picture where the driveway disappears into the trees.

    I'd check out the BC Big Trailie Ride "7" thread if I were you.

    Hey'o - heading up to explore some of this country tomorrow for a few days and have a couple ?s for those who followed this route:

    - This route for Day 1 looks like a fairly long day? About how many hours did the average rider take to complete this Day 1 route?

    - Did you stop for gas in Dog Creek near Gang Ranch, or with a 250km range was it a comfortable gap from Clinton to Williams Lake?

    Thanks much!! JB

    If my memory is correct day 1 was about 730 to 6pm, but there were many others who were faster than I.
    One stop for fuel at Williams Lake and you use less fuel if you go slower.

    Here are the GPS files if you are interested:
