We can hit the Revelstoke Dam for pics and then go halfway to Mica and stop at the Downie slide for a Picnic. The road is really nice and will be quite empty. Option 3?
I'm with you after a long drive and then a long cruise I'll need sleep not refreshments!

I don't know about Highway 23 to Mica Dam, but on Highway 69 in Ontario the speed limit is, lickity split.

it is only 155 K to the Dam and at Camaro speeds that translates into warp factor two and we are there in two hours, that is of course weather and road conditions dependant.

You get it for 2 hours.....then you have to vacate for the next occupant. It's coin flip who goes 1st.

Welcome. You might want to talk with Sawdusty as I assume you will both be staying Abbotsford Friday night before we depart. The first rally point we be in Abby Saturday morning early and we will be stopping briefly in Chilliwack to pick up a few cars before we move on towards Kamloops and beyond.

I talked with my buddy Raymond who was on the cruise last year and he told me that they drove right on the ferry Sunday we parted ways in Revelstoke.

Is there not a new high end ski /winter golf /summer lodge/resort near the Revelstoke dam?
It could provide a great parking lot and lunch?

I'm going to change my vote. The cruise from Revy to Nakusp will be nicer. We can even hit the beach in Nakusp for a swim. The Ferry ride will be cool.
Let's do that.

I'm easy I'll go with the pack.....well maybe easy is not the right choice of words

Looking at maybe having the Alberta crew cruise a little further than Three Valley on the Saturday maybe get a longer cruise in together

any which way I'm kinda getting a bit pumped for this

Anything is possible by the looks of things.

I'll make the change. It would be cool if we did some traffic directing to get us all on the same ferry at least one way.

You Guy's are halarious Meltdown and I thought we would make the cruise destination a democratic process and nobody seems to know what they want to do.

Let's do that.
There is Nakusp Hot Springs up the mountain for a soak. OR another half hour is Halcyon Hot Springs. Both are great.
