I have this all figured into our schedule. We stop in Lytton for a nap by the park. Then, when the food coma hits after the A & W, we just go down to that nice park by the Fraser River. We can stop for a quick nod-off again in Lytton on the way back.

With all this factored in this will be an 18 hr drive day. Hopefully it comes off on the Saturday as we will need ALL day Sunday to sleep and get caught up on our rest.

That is still our plan I hope, 13th first, 14th as alternate.

Then, if that does not work weather wise, my next available date will be Oct. 27/28.

I will be at Sonoma Raceway for a week of the 20/21.

Long range for next Saturday sure looks good for the whole corridor, lets keep our fingers crossed. I'm off for a quick drive this afternoon, 99 to the tunnel, 91 Alex Fraser back to 99, home.

Just a bump back up, the weather looks to be perfect for our drive on Saturday, October 13th!. I will update as the week progress's and will stay with our LEAVE time from the Hope Chevron @ 7:30 AM. This is the Chevron we usually meet up at.

I have let Paul ( Gordini) know of the drive.

Depending where you are coming from in the Lower mainland, it is about 170-190 Miles to Lillooet. Lets hope we do not have much fog heading out, I usually experience carb icing.....what fun.

Hi all
I am back from Portugal, even though I drove 8000km all over Europa, I am always ready for a drive.
Got a email from Keith, I will be joining you on Saturday
James if you are going, maybe we can hook up and drive to Hope.
Is this rain or shine?
