The plan is to drive up towards Brew and see how the bridge repair is coming along.  They say they will be done by Nov 10, which is a Sunday, but surely the Authorities don't work on Sunday, and Monday is a holiday,  so maybe they are done ahead of time, or maybe not.  If the new bridge works, we can drive towards Brew, and see where the snow line is.  This might be useful to know for the helicopter/firewood caper.

If the bridge is still absent, we can drive around the new-to-me rv park just north of there and see if it takes us anywhere, and then drive up the Brandywine snowmobile road, again checking for snow, etc.  At some stage we will probably get tired of driving and start hiking, probably to Brandywine Meadows. 

If this sort of low-technology one day trip appeals, email me and let me know, or you can always post on the signup thing.  I have three empty car seats.

Edit:  Bridge is taking longer than they originally estimated; they now expect that it might be useable by November 15th.  So we won't waste much time investigating the Chance-Roe network, instead we will probably end up at Brandywine Meadows, via the Brandywine snowmobile area.  Shouldn't be many snowmobiles there yet.
