This is an annual trip to maintain the wood supply at our Phelix/Waddington Hut ! The lazy and expensive option would be to buy wood and use a helicopter, but that money can be better used elsewhere and we've shown it can be done manually. And what could be better than supplying wood for the warmth and comfort of yourself and others next winter ?

Here's a pic Roland Burton took of Gabe during the 2016, demonstrating an extreme example of what we'll be doing:


Saturday 7:00 AM Cross Lions Gate  
  10:00 AM Meet at bottom of Phelix Creek FSR  
    Drive / shuttle road 4.4 km
  11:00 AM Last person walking up trail 5.2 km, 560 m
  2:00 PM Arrive at wood 50° 37' 49.65" N
122° 40' 06.34" W
    Swim, chill, explore  
  PM Dinner with car groups  
    Dessert potluck (?)  
    Sleep in the hut  
Sunday AM Haul  
    Swim, chill, explore  
  3:00 PM Leave down trail  
  6:00 PM Drive away from bottom of FSR  
  9:15 PM Vancouver  

What to Bring:

  • Everything on the Summer Overnight gear list - no tent needed due to the hut, I'll bring an emergency communicator and first aid kit.
  • Backpack - the largest one you can get your hands on that will be somewhat ergonomic to use for wood hauling. We have two metal frame packs from the Club to use.
  • Work gloves
