Self Propelled UBC to MT. BAKER

Tentative Dates Fed 20-23 2009

The goal as envisioned thus far.

Day One

  • Cycle the roughly 130km from UBC the parking lot of Mt.Baker on the first day. Camp somewhere out of harms way.

Day Two

  • Set out early to gain as much elevation on day two and find an suitable bivy.

Day Three

  • Summit early day three, ski out to parking lot in all our glory, and cycle back to Glacier (the closest town to the ski hill) for beer and hearty food before slumber.

Day Four

  • slog the reaming 100+kms home...

Doesn't this sound like fun... anybody?

CPBL: Yes!!!!!!! But I would need to be back by 22nd, ie shift to 19th-22nd. I teach on 23rd. Previous week is reading week at UBC.

Len Goff: This is so ambitious it might just work... I'm definately interested, I'll have to see closer in if I can miss class though. Were you planning on renting some stuff down there in order to avoid carrying it (e.g. skis)?
