"So, as you may have heard, Line and I are getting married! It's not a very long engagement - in fact we're getting married tomorrow.(June 23rd)

To celebrate we're having a second ceremony up at the Phelix Creek Hut the weekend of the 28th - 29th (with the ceremony late Saturday afternoon). If you'd like to come up and join us you are certainly welcome. We're expecting everyone to be self-sufficient (or bring your own guardian angel - as I don't want to miss my wedding night dragging someone up to the hut). We'd like to have a potluck style dinner Saturday night, and hopefully do alot of singing, dancing, and skiing on spring mush.

Hope to see you there!"

- Christian + Line


June 28th - 29th, 2008


Phelix Hut


Parties need to be self-sufficient for the journey in. Nobody will want to miss the ceremony to rescue beginners.

Drivers: Please indicate here where you are leaving from, and when, and how many people you can transport.

Passengers: It is up to you to contact your driver asap and tell him/her that you want a ride. At that time you can discuss departure time and place, sharing of food, tents, etc. Once you have done this, you should take your name off the "carless people" list.

  • Jeff Mottershead [leave Saturday around 9:00, return when I get up Sunday morning--note that I will have a sat phone so that if Iva goes into labour, I can be notified and escape the pseudo-wedding. This is unlikely, but should it occur, you either need to keep up with me as I roll my fat ass back down to the van at ramming speed or be left for dead. You will also be riding with a bunch of tools, hose and a gas powered air compressor, until I get it dropped off in Squamish. The van has been recently excavated and even vaugely vacuumed, but the only time a civilized person has been in the van since, they thought it still stunk.]

  2. Philipp Zielke ("out") - as in just one way

  • Scott and Sandra [leave Saturday morning early (5 or 6 am) from Oak & 7th, returning sunday night]. We have a 4x4 and can drive up the road, also ski racks. Planning to bring a chainsaw + peavy to take care of some of the blowdowns on the trail.

This is a list of things to bring to fix up the hut.

  1. Switch and wire etc. for LED lights (would it be possible to get some newer more efficient better LEDs? I dont know where to buy them but maybe we could get more light for our juice. (posted by Ben SP) --> This might be theoretically possible, but someone would have to find LEDs and determine somehow that they were more efficient, then build little circuit boards for them and wire them up there. This isn't impossible or anything, but not entirely trivial. If the new LEDs came in the same package type as the old ones then they might be swappable with a soldering iron, but then you'd need more juice or a trip to town.

  2. 9V battery for CO detector (Scott W.)
  3. Carry new stove (Jeff M.)
