There are a couple openings on a trip to British Columbia.

Details are still being formed, but here's the gist:

Leave by van next Thursday eve.

Drive through to Vancouver, then to Mt Waddington general area.

Backpack in, hike around Tiedemann Glacier, hike out. Time in woods a week to ten days.

Hopefully get to canoe in south Idaho on the way back.

Total time away: between 2 and 3 weeks.

PM me if interested.

EDIT: Cost of trip is share of expenses (gas/food/etc)

Are you a hatchet murderer trying to lure gullable internet surfers to their roadside graves?

I picked up this book from an outfitter in Canmore, Canada. Alberta is the province or whatever the Canucks call their 'states'. Don Serl made a really kick-butt guide, aptly named "The Waddington Guide". It's more geared towards the climber, but oh man it is sweet. ISBN 0968247253 www.elaho.ca (http://www.elaho.ca) is the publisher's website. I think he works at MEC, which is the Canadian's REI, but with cheaper prices due to the exchange rate for us foreigners that come visit. http://www.mec.ca

Also, here's a good Canuck website for route info and such, even for hiking: http://bivouac.com/

Chris from this website might be interested. Total speculation on my part, but I thought he did make mention of moving out here and maybe he's still on summer break. Or even LW, he sounds like he has plenty of free time.

Hmmm...Too bad I missed this thing. Waddington is really, really high on the list.
