Below are the intructions on how to get to the whipsaw entrance and meeting points.
We will be leaving the Ikea Coquitlam parking lot at 7pm Friday Sept 9th and convoying up all the way to the horse cabins meadow area arriving around 10pm near dark.
If some would like to leave early, by all means.
If some cannot make it friday evening, then saturday morning meetup at the horse cabins at 9am would be great.

From this point, 4Wd kicks in and there's a good climb up to the alpine with gorgeous views before you dip in and out along the whipsaw trail.
Last year, a stock L300 and L400 SWB and LWB made it through.
Saturday evening we will be camping at Wells lake and sunday popping out near Coalmont just north west of Princeton and coming back home from Princeton hwy 3.
All JDM's are welcome.
