MAY 13 Run to Lillooet, BC - the pics

Hey BC Strommers,

On Saturday I planned to run up to Whistler. Stopping at the Squamish Starbucks I bumped into our friend Water Warrior. After a nice chat and a quick peruse thru my Destination Highways book, I decided to push on for Lillooet. The ride north was very scenic, but I'll let the pics do the talking. Road conditions were great, a good combination of twisties and easy straights. The only hitch was the colder temps and roadside snow I drove thru between Whistler & Lillooet. Being a California transplant, this was a new on for me. But I bravely rode on

Stayed the night at the Mile O Hotel, and in the morning, had a another great ride back to Vancouver and loads of traffic on Lions Gate Bridge.

VFXDEPT, I so wanted to ride with you a while but was nursing a somewhat upset stomach and feared leaving the nearby facilities. Glad your ride was a gooder one, nice pics by the way. Don't remember you taking a pic of the double wide Wee.

V1Vr, not reserved for me but it is close to the door and ashtray as you may have noticed. Thanks again for the trip up to Pemberton, it was a blast. Remind me to slowdown a bit next time. Got a Wee bit carried away and had a couple "moments" to tune me in.
Also had a nice errand ride into Vancouver today, best possible weather and no real traffic in the middle of the day. Should have retired 20 years sooner.
