That's a pretty good time. If you get to the Prairies late July or early August it is usually much drier than June. June is the rainiest month of the year in SK and AB.

If you go much later than that you start to run the risk of freezing/snow in the mountains. IMHO there is about a 1 to 2 month window to get through SK/AB with reasonable weather - unless you like riding mud and rain and snow.

Hope to see you in S'toon next summer!

Great video!! I loved the look of triumph in your wife's eyes after making her way through the washout. I'm looking forward to spending some time on the TCAT next year.

Off topic a bit....a sweet little cabin for sale...right on the tcat...

http://tinyhouselistings.com/small-post-and-beam-cabin/

Trying to figure out a way to get provincial tourism money from the Gov so we can buy this, put a combination lock on it and hand out the combo to tcat riders. Anyone have experience with provincial funding in BC, maybe a contact name and number...
