Chilcotin Chillout September 2014 - 11 days BC Chilcotin backcountry

Chilcotin Chillout September 2014 - 11 days BC chilcotin backcountry via Chilco/Tatlayoko/Taseko/Tatla/Tsuniah and beyond.

September 2014 saw three of us (Harry on his valiant F650gs Dakar, Paul sporting a mighty KLR, and me on my trusty XR650l) mount up and head out for 11 days of big BC backcountry. The plan was to access a few key chilcotin spots I have been drooling over for the last few years - Dash Plateau, Poison Mountain, the south end of Tatlayoko and Taseko lakes, and a bunch of other off-the-beaten-track locales that promised remote, 2-wheeled good times. And beers and steaks and rum, whenever we could find 'em. Here's a few intro shots to give you a flavor of the trip....
























More to come......

bozos and bikes - day 1, Victoria to Mission Dam rec site

Me:



Harry (inertialexplorer):



and Paul (pghconsult)





we three companions resolve, before the gods of knobs (bies), rods (connecting), and shafts (counter) to speak/see/hear no evil for the next 11 days.....but maybey smell, eat, and drink some evil.....



Day 1 Tuesday September 9th (Victoria to Mission Dam rec site)

Bloody hell, why do i leave things @@##in minute all the time! up to 2am prepping and packing the bike, where the f?? are the tent poles? My eldest son took my tent to the Tall Trees Music fest earlier in the summer, and now it smelled....funny......, and i cant find the poles and there's a rip in the fly. OK, No worries, found the poles, it'll smell funnier (albeit in a different way) after 11 sleeps of me farting the night away, aquaseal and a stich or 2 will take care of the fly. We're all good.

Up early, said a quick farewell to the family and Hit the road at 7am. I picked up harry at his place in Brentwood Bay, then we were off to the Mill Bay ferry then meet Paul and the 11AM from Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay.

Mill Bay Ferry:




beautiful morning! good omens:


time to get the new worn right off these, asap!
