For the departure time we will shoot for 4 Pm out of the Chevron on the hwy 19/28 intersection... This should give us plenty of time to get to a campsite on the Gold side going of the White Gold route... I'll ride out to meet Yatman who will be coming in late in Gold River...

Itinerary

Here is a possible route format:
Day 1- Departure time: 4:00 PM from the hwy 19/ hwy 28 Esso in Campbell River... From there we will take the TCAT route from Campbell Lake to Sayward, up the White valley and down the Gold valley to the first nights camp {hopefully set up by 8pm} Will run out to meet the late goers {Yatman so far} in Gold river so they don't have to try find the camp in the dark...

Day 2- Take the TCAT to Woss and then head for Kinman/ Numas and the cave trail {alternate gravel route to the cave trail is available} Will work the roads northwest and end up at Nahwitti Lake for the night...

Day 3- Take a circle route up to the windtowers , down the backside valley and head back south along Holberg and Rupert Inlets taking the day to get south to a variable camping spot...

Day 4 - return back to Campbell River by mid day...

Some route adjustments are in order, we have a forest fire burning across Kinman RD and the White Gold is closed for bridge repair...

Change campsite to same as last year..

Due to road closures we will use the same campsite as last year for the first night... The campsite will be 2-3 km north down the highway from Woss... Turn left off the hwy onto the power line trail, then take the first trail to the left and follow it to the end {1-2KM} to find camp...
