I just arrived home from Golden B.C., Can. where I helped timberframe a footbridge across the Kicking Horse River. Despite the building the bridge, I also hooked up bigtime with a few Yota fanatics who showed me primo trails in the area. Winch in, winch out busted axle type of stuff. Too bad us Americans can't have deisel Land Cruisers, as a few had there. Pretty neat eh? If you have the opprotunity, go! Just make sure you have spare parts, 'cause there is some serious backcountry shit there and no 'round the corner Napa store. Timber Framers Rock!! <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

I believe that it is referred to as MUSKEG
Bird is right though, BC has it's fair share of rocks and tight tree lined muddy trails
A pretty diverse selection of terrain.......

Big Bird, B.C. has lots of things no one but them know about (DANK). Rocks and tight tree squeezes and smelly goo for sure. My new sliders got the grind too. I'm going back A.S.A.P.! <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0">

when i was out in BC a week or so ago i hooked up with some people of this board for some wheeling, it was great, like you guys all say the back country is endless and some of the country side is beautiful.


Thanks to everyone that took me out.
