MBCA BC Section Event

When: February 22nd. (Saturday)
Where: Vancouver, BC
What: Car rally
Web: www.mercedesclub.org

Details:

We are holding another fun 'treasure hunt' style of rally followed by a dinner at the Flying Beaver restaurant. We will be meeting at 1pm in the parking area by the Indy track overpass just off of 1st & Ontario. Start times will be staggered to ease congestion in some areas.

If you are interested please RSVP to yvrbenz@hotmail.com so we can reserve enough tables at the restaurant.

Come prepared with a full tank of fuel and of course, your Mercedes-Benz.

Will there be something in the spring, when the roads are dry on MY side of the mountains?

On Feb. 22, I plan to be here in the Tonquin Valley:

Dean,

Alpine Club of Canada "Huts" are for wussies!

However, the winter is the BEST time to be in the Tonquin Valley, as the last summer I was there the bugs were the worst I have ever experienced.

Here's as comfy as I get in winter camping: (MSR Fury)

Nice tent! I came very close to buying one of those last summer. Still my top choice but I'm gonna try and snag a rental Sierra 2-person tent when Campus Outdoor has their going-out-of-business sale.

Ah! Good idea.

The Fury has the most incredible snow loading capabilities. It's a bit expensive for a two person winter tent, but MSR stuff is really good.

I also have a Microzoid for ultra-light summer work. I used to use a SilTarp, but the bugs sent me back to a tent. The Microzoid can be packed down to about 2 1/2 pounds.
