    Almost home. A few days off grid. I was hating my life getting here but probably one of the most spectacular places in BC. DB93451E-21EF-4CAF-9B6B-0370CB23ADF2.jpeg 1C9E2DBE-248E-4A30-AC3A-CB1738F57C57.jpeg

    I joked with a young couple at the campsite that the back way in felt like a hundred k. It was only 40. :-) But 1st gear and on the pegs. The 100 k of wash board to get out was fun too.
    Wild horses couldn’t keep me away

    Brian, it is SO cool that you are out...enjoying your new rig, and seeing all that BC has to offer.

    Small tip: Warn makes covers to cover up your winch. BUY one. Whilst you can pressure wash the bike and clean all that gunk out of the winch cable, you will find that repeatedly pressure washing the Warn winch motor housing does cause some water to penetrate, and will cause issues.

    BUY a winch cover.....dang it :-)

    Spectacular scenery Brian. I didn’t think that you had to stand on the pegs with a rig. It is harder work than I imagined. Thanks for the ride along.

    When you get home, would love to see a gpx of your route or just a Google Map? The border will open eventually and there's lots of BC I'd like to explore.

    I will try. I've seen a lot of BC but there is still more and so much I miss.

    There! that is about it. I tried to save my route in Base Camp and convert it but my one brain cell just couldn't figure it out. Google to the rescue.

    The Chilcotin River at Far Well Canyon

    GPS says this is the right road!!!

    Getting better, almost to The Gang Ranch

    The Fraser River

    I had two choices after this bridge, I took the right one as the road to Dog Creek was closed due to fire.
    tempImageROSJui.jpg

    As it was I got close. The officer blocking the road the other way was surprised and asked Where'd you come from. Chilco Lake, The back way. He laughed and said carry on. This was the plume from the big back burn they had done, The wind was in the right direction so it helped a lot. I rode through a lot of burn't off BC in the Chilcotin. Part of nature and how we can really effect our world

    There is a Village of Canoe down there in all that Smoke. Kinda missing the clear sky of a few days ago.

    Not a huge trip by some standards but it got me to some parts of BC I hadn't seen before, plus I got to talk to a lot of interesting people along the way. I think it has also beaten the gravel travel bug out of me for a bit. :-)

    Very jealous of your "back yard."

    What all you have in greens and blues, Texas has equal amounts of brown.

    As of right now, Yes. How about you? it would be therapeutic to get out and about.

    I'll be there. However, I'm going to be there with my dog, trailer and bicycle. Just a laid back weekend of schmoozing, kicking tires and downing the odd beer. I haven't got a rig like yours that will allow the comforts and the bike. (Yet!)

    Wayne, Brian, we have to get together for a BC ride adventure. I can't express to you guys how jealous I am of your country. As you may know, I usually spend my entire vacation allotment every year up north of Washington. I am hoping for several forays into BC next year. The fires, pandemic have put a damper on my travels north of the border over the past few years. I have sooo much vacation saved up now, that I'm hoping to be a temporary Canadian citizen next year. I'm going a bit crazy. If you hear of a homeless guy in the news living off the back of a GS in the bush next year... that'll be me. Bring me beer, I'll be fine.

    Be forewarned... retirement is just around the corner. Then you'll have a real homeless problem.:beer
