    Went camping to Harrison lake, BC. Beautiful place, lots of fun off roading there!
    Pretty cool creek crossing, was interesting going back. https://youtu.be/6GSXRMC_Lo4

    Just added toolbox and roof-rack to haul my fishing boat 100's of miles into the backwoods every week. Goodrich K02s, Bilstein 5100 front and back, no lift.
    Looks great, nice pics. Spent a lot of time up at Harrison Lake. Fished Big Silver creek and Cogburn creek countless times. Great for fishing, driving, scenery, and swimming! An unbelievable swim to do, is about 200 yards up Cogburn creek where it flows in Harrison lake. The creek is very deep and slow flowing there. You can swim the last couple hundred, maybe few hundred yards down into Harrison lake. Freezing cold, but once in Harrison lake at the creek mouth, there are a number of hot water points where the hot springs bubble up into the lake. You can't see those spots, but you can feel them and great to hang out there. After a sweaty day of trekking up and down Big Silver and Cogburn, a great way to cool off.

    I can't remember the exact spot, but there is a high mountain lake on the east side of Harrison lake. Tried getting to it once with my 1986 F150, that was back in 1988 or so. The trail was narrower than the truck. I drove over a mile up there, no turnaround. Had to back all the way down, and had about 150 deep scratches the length of the truck on both sides. Took 2 full days of rubbing compound then another day to wax it. Truck was only 1 year old at the time. Got about 70% of the scratches out. Live and learn...

    Did those tires come stock or did you swap them immediately?

    Thanks! Was a lot of fun! Got some new rock chips and dented the skidplate, so not big deal. I was really careful not get pinstripes as some areas were pretty narrow. I did brush up against some leaves or thin branches, but all good. Washed her yesterday and paint looks great, big thanks to the ceramic coating.

    I have been at at harrison maybe 6-7 times, so not that experienced yet. I havent been to the places that you mentioned, but will check them out, thanks. We were at a place called 5 mile bay. Its about 65 km UP from sasquatch inn, beautiful place man.

    Planning to go again in couple weeks for my birthday with some other folks, cant wait!

    Got out yesterday for some fishing at one of my remote spots. Well, pretty much every spot I have gone the last 30 years is remote. If there is another fisherman on the lake, I don't want to be there.

    I have fished at this spot for 30 years now, and only twice have I seen another fisherman. Only once have I ever encountered another truck on the 50 miles of offroad to this spot. Last 3 miles is 4-lo. There is a spot to camp by the lake there, but it is seldom used as it is off the beaten path and there are so many larger lakes with easy access, that lakes like this are left alone.

    Great weather yesterday. Only one bite, about a 2 pound rainbow that got off when it jumped. Did not care, such a nice day I am glad there were no other bites. Gave me time to just row the lake and enjoy nature. Large black bear on the road in, and at least 20 large fresh piles of moose scat.

    I'm not much of a fisherman, but I dig your style.

    Did a 37 mile, 7 hour off road drive around Mauna Kea Mountain averaging 9,000ft. This was my first real off road experience, there were a couple of sketchy moments around 19 mile marker where the wife and dog thought we should turn around because of a crazy wet rocky incline. I vetoed and was seriously impressed at what this truck can do in stock form...IMG_3878 2.jpg

    Unfortunately can't. This is one of my secret spots. I took me about 5 consecutive years, maybe 10 trips, to finally find the road into this. Drove me mad trying to find this spot. Need to keep this very private. Not many spots like that around anymore.

    Nice. Is that a volcano and is it still active?

    Yes Mauna Kea is a dormant volcano (13,803ft) and the one in the background is Mauna Loa (13,678ft) which is still active. These pictures are pretty tame there are some other shots that I need to dig out that make it look like you're on the moon!

    Be sure to check out cogburn and big silver creeks east side of Harrison lake. They are past the 5 mile bay spot. Watch out where you park, make sure far off side of road. On one of our fishing up there, my buddies first gen tacoma had the drivers side of the truck almost torn right off. Logging company agreed to pay for the damage, required 2 new quarter panels and a new driver door. Those creeks are beautiful, one of my favorite spots for river fishing in BC. Both have a huge pool at river head where a narrow gap in the canyon wall funnels the water into the big pools. Risky rapids below those pools, don't get swept away. Requires quite a bit of steep hiking to bet to the one at Cogburn. Water now will be a muddy stormy mess with the spring snow melt, which is very risky, you can get washed away. Best and safest time to get clear and lower water and is in July and later. Also watch the hairpin corners on the logging road, can get some yahoos going too fast in their trucks and dirt bikes. Saw a dirt bike run head on into a 4x4 up there. So avoid weekends.

    Yeah this is probably the most remote you can get on the island... drive for 7 hours and do 37 miles and not see anyone else. At one point we may as well have been on the moon!
