    Sunacus- Unfortunately with such a generic description, it would be hard to accurately saw what it is. Would have to experience it first hand, otherwise I'm throwing out guesses.

    Sorry guys, gonna have to cancel last minute. Went on a full day wheeling trip today and ended up messing up the valve stem on one of my tires (in addition to some nice body damage), and I dont have a fullsize spare.

    Only tire shop open here tomorrow doesnt open til 9am.. No way I could make it there until afternoon time. But hopefully you guys will have another meet soon and I will do my best to be there.

    Too bad runner316 - good luck at the shop today! Also - just an odd chance - I have one 265/17/70 BFG AT ko at 85% tread I'm trying to sell for cheap! Any chance that's your tire?? Hard to tell from the picture :)

    Good run yesterday everybody! It was a nice drive down a FSR. Maybe next time I'll have to engage 4wheel lol.

    Ya, good run. Was good to do the whole thing once.

    Had 342 miles round trip from Langley-UBC-Pemberton-Harrison- about 12h of driving.

    Bought a new air fliter already, there was dust caked on both sides.

    At least we got to scope out some promising looking tracks off of harrison/lilooette west FSR. Should do sunrise or hale next time. I also know of a nifty little trail to Francis lake I believe it is. if I can remember how to get to it. Haha

    I was on the fence about coming for this one but I was a little worried it would be a huge amount of driving (12 hours!) and a pretty tame trail (I like excitement!). Sounds like it was still worth it to see though? I've never been down that one. But that said, I've heard there's some good stuff (more serious 4x4 tech trails) that branch off what you guys did. Did you happen to notice much?

    If we hadn't backtracked due to a closure and not had a tire problem, not stopped to look at things could've been about 7 with a group. and that is from Squamish to end point in South Harrison at the #7. It was hard to keep a good speed with the extreme dust at some points! I bet a singel vehicle would have no issues. The Harrison west drive was beautiful.

    is the only way to post pictures here if they have a url? I just wanted to post one from my computer - is that possible?

    Thanks DJ!

    Hey - anyone turned their interior fans on full blast yet since the dust run? I did, and between a cloud of dust I couldn't see through and then me laughing I nearly drove off the road! lol!
