It was a wick'd good time!!! A great big thanks to everyone who came out and a BIG thanks to Eddie n' Sue who brought a big ol' batch of delicious baked beans and fresh rolls that we enjoyed along side of Milburry Lake...also thanks to the Easter Bunny who made a special appearance bringing all the good boys and girls treats...you'll just have to try to be a better boy for next year Lance We had two prospective members, Jeremy and Chris along for their second run who showed some awesome driving skills navigating the monster ruts and deep snow drifts that managed to get everyone stuck ATLEAST once...the trail was just enough challenge for everyone...We'll look forward to welcoming our new friends to the club at our next meeting...
Hey Kevin...sorry ya couldn't make it...we decided to go ahead with our plans of hitting the Fraser Rd...and what a great choice it was!!! jus enough snow on the way up the mountain to challenge a couple of us on the steep hill section...but after a couple tries we were at the top looking at one of the most amazing views of the Valley...the skidderz have been in there and created some great ruts to navigate once ya get going on the level...snow gradually got deeper as we made our way through...the deepest being a few feet deep in the lake area but as long as you let ur wheel crawl through it without spin we were OK it was sliding into the ruts and getting high centered that got the tug straps out...it took us 4 or 5 hrs to travel all the way through to the cottages...what a great day! I'll post some pics soon... Jeff

I look forward to the pictures. I knew it would be a fun trail! It's one of those that receives little traffic but keeps getting worse and worse from runoff. There are several cross roads as yet unexplored. I've only checked out 2 and they both continued on. I see one at the top that goes on for a few KM's.
I have plans to fix the bridge on the cross section over to Longley and bush out Longley. Last trip through I broke through the bridge and had to winch up the hill. It's only 2 meters down but still a rough fall. This will create another Phinney/Chute trail that will be the caliber that Phinney/Chute were before the monster washout accured. It will make an awsome second day Jeep 101 trail.
If the side roads pan out it may also make a great 6-7 trail. Either way stopping at the lake on the way up Fraser makes a nice break. As you said how do you beat the view from the bend by the old camp, it's awsome
My next hunt trail involves something as nice or better! If I can get permission from the land owner. It has a section like potato salad hill or dump bump at Moab. I walked in and stood looking at a 50+ft 40degree rock face. It has a ledge midway to catch your rear tires. If you don't catch them then your comming down on your roof So far the guy says NO WAY as we will tear up his field, I'm working on him. If I can find the way down from the top then we'll In-Out the trail from there.
I'll keep everyone informed so everyone can enjoy it. Besides I hear Alan is thinking about mas producing roll cages ahhh sorry Sport Cages ya thats the word.
