Thats around the areas where I spend my summers fishing a dirtbiking. Looks like a fun trip. Is it getting chilly up there now?

and the trucks looks so damn beefy. Still cant get over the height you got on that thing with just a 3" body

I was up there at the end of August, in 70 mile house anyway. Quite nice going from near tropical Vancouver, through what I thought was desert. A beautiful, if long, drive.

Wow, beautiful. I'd love to drive semi in BC, always something new to see.

On another note, I'm surprised there is no snow on the mountains! We got about 6cm here tonight, I hate winter.

last spike of the line finished in 1915.. BCrail which is now part of CN. But the other one is the line across all of Canada, a commitment the government had to fulfill in order for BC to become a province.
