Ok so a year goes by since the Nanika Portage trip and we have another trip planned into Monkman Provincial Park which is located south of Tumbler Ridge, BC Canada. This was a tough hike, the first 7km's were a cake walk that followed the Murray river and it was pretty much flat.
I lightened up my load since the previous year and bought a new Kelty Tioga 5500, this pack is sweet. I dumped the old sleeping bags and got a couple of Big Agnes bags, an Encampment and a Storm King both coming in at just over 3lbs each, I was able to get them both into one compression sack!! Also added two Big Agnes Insulated Sleeping pads at 27oz each. Great sleep system by the way.
I also picked up a Big Agnes Emerald Mountain SL3 which weighed about 6lbs a 4lbs savings from last years tent. I like this tent alot. Lots of room, I went with the SL3 for the extra room, it was worth it.
We made it! This was day 2, we spent the night at a km 14 camp called Trot. But the picture below was the ultimate goal because of the view. This is my Mom and her dog Cage
This is what she was looking at... Shire Falls
The weekend following our trip Rachel(4364) and her sister Jayda(4143) ran a 21km race called the Emperors Challenge which is hosted by Tumbler Ridge. They are warriors, me and Quentin drank beer, it was great!
That's all for now!
