Talked to my neighbour (he's with Forestry), got all the details as to which bridges to cross to get to the waterfall (I always seem to forget), plus the beach you can drive down onto, right up top the river. Its a ways up the valley, but the reward should be worth the drive

Not that the shocks were in very good shape to begin with...

Yeah, buddy of mine got a screamin' deal on some nice adjustable gas shocks for his Previa, from rockauto.com... I checked it out, and yeah, the prices are insane (in a good way)... and so is the shipping (NOT in a good way). :P

Right now I'm generally surviving on bartering for used parts in at least decent condition. *sigh*

I took my old Oldsmobile Alero offroading up in Naramata one year. An H2 got stuck ahead of me and I simply passed by him. He was a little pissed about that lol

And, hey, if I can go full speed down Triangle Beach while racing a dirt bike in my slammed Accord... hrm...

Maybe I'll make a trek down and bring the Blazer. Or finally buy that SUV off of a fellow member and take that for a spin on this drive...

Three weeks into the discussion and 12 days before hand, you and one other change the location because it will "probably be better".

This is why GTGs and Social Meets fail all the time - lack of organization. Get a plan, organize, stick to the plan, success.

I dunno which other social meets you have been to that fail, but I know for sure that this meet will still be going on wether or not 2 people show up.
I'm changing the location for a much better experience for all you guys. Be thankful that me and Mike decided to put something like this together.

New location is Chilliwack River Valley.
Meeting at tim hortons off of 200 st in Langley right by the hwy.
We are still meeting at 0900. Nothing Major has really changed its still going to be a good time.
Honestly I don't see anything wrong with this.
We're headed into chilliwack up to some nice view points and to end the trip were driving towards Foley Lake.
Roads are fine, gravel roads some pot holes but nothing too crazy.

Why the sudden change?

If it's Foley Lake, I guess I can take my civic instead now

Foley Lake: The Horror! May 22nd 2010

about mid way down.


thats pretty much what it looks like every time i've gone.

its like stave or hale during grad season.


edit:

also, my 2 cents are, if a consensus was made and a destination chosen then it should be stuck with. changing locations on a whim is annoying. if there was a legit reason for a change in venue like the closure of the forest service road or whatever then fair enough.

elaho/squish valley is a good day out and alot more fun than chilliwack valley. i've driven up folley, chipmunk and the entire length of the chilliwack fsr. gets boring. great views but gets boring. more of a sunday drive with the wife type place.

We will leave it as planned for Elaho Valley. If people are not happy with the changes we will try and accommodate everyone as best as we can. Honestly if we go to elaho or foley it don't really matter. But if people have problems with changes the that's fine we will stick with original plan. I just thought it would better. Didn't think people would be so bitter about it.
