      I took a stupid amount of pictures but it was so beautiful there. I put up a couple good ones just to make everyone else jealous :) Once I sort through the rest and edit them down to reasonable (not!) number, I'll send the package to you guys.

    It was lovely to be in the mountains even if the good stuff was still socked in with snow. Iceberg Lake was definitely the highlight for me!! Star gazing & reading the local news was entertaining as well!! Thanks girls for a super-fun weekend.

    Hello, may I ask a silly question? Is it allowed to bring some camping food , like frozen burgers, meats... when crossing the border? do we have to buy these kind of food in States? thank you for helping!

    June 26, 2013

    • Mike S.

      You can bring these with you. Just can't bring fresh fruits / vegetables with you. Anything processed / frozen etc is fine.

    I would love to go but I'm very beginner ish, and there isn't that much time to prepare till tomorrow morning, I don't have much to do all day today and can probably run around to get a few things but. My question is, if it's my first time doing something like this, would it be better to wait for something else or should I just jump in?

    June 27, 2013

    • vu t.

      no worries, thanks for letting me know, I was just about to rush out to buy some gears. Enjoy.

    Cheers!

      I can pick you up, I was going to go down Shaganappi if Memorial was open.

      June 27, 2013

  • Jessica C.

    I think we are a go. I am confirmed, Christina is confirmed, Elda & Sandy I think you are coming, but please give us your unwavering confirmation & then it's a go.

    • Sandy

      Yes, I was just at MEC. Have mostly everything but lunch and a cup.

      June 27, 2013

  • Jessica C.

    Anyone have a cooler? Sandy, any luck? I will go pick one up tonight if we are without one.

    June 27, 2013

  • Jessica C.

    Ok guys, I am hoping we'll have enough people and cars. I would prefer 6 people and 2 cars. Gas fees are going to be $50 and there will be other fees we will split such as camping fees and park entrance fees. We will need at least one cooler (I don't have a big one). I have two tents, one that sleeps 3 and one that sleeps 2. I have a Coleman stove with 2 burners. We can stock up on food and propane on the way. You will need to bring your own sleeping gear and eating paraphernalia, and hiking gear of course. If we are in one car it will be super tight so we will have to try and pack as light as possible.

    I will check passports before we leave Calgary... don't want a surprise at the border!

    • Jessica C.

      The cooler I recently threw out was my parent's one from the 70's. I didn't realize they came with features!! lol... Med. to large-ish is good.

    • Jessica C.

      I doubt we'll get into serious scrambling terrain. The higher trails are still snowbound. You can bring a helmet anytime if you have one. I will bring my ice axe just in case.

  • Jessica C.

    ICERS will be required (sadly)

  • Sandy

    I will try to get as much as I can tomorrow. I may need to mooch off others until I can get more stuff.

    Jessica, I have not done this before. However am very much interested in camping and hiking. I can bring by car. Could you let me know what gears I need to bring along for camping? Thanks, Uday

    June 26, 2013

    • Jessica C.

      Hi Uday, here is a gear list from REI. Bring what you think you need from this list. It's car camping & there will be stores not too far away so it's not the end of the world if you forget something. http://www.rei.com/le...­

    • uday

      Thanks for your prompt response. I may not be able to make it this time, but definitely the one next I like to join. Uday

    Expect snow and mud on trails. We won't be able to get to far into high country, but will still be hiking in the mountains :) http://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/trailstatusreports.htm

    I can go if work says yes. Don't know if I can get to Somerset for 7am because I can't leave my car there.

    June 26, 2013

    • Jessica C.

      You could park your car at my place in Inglewood (in my secure u/g parking & we could head out from there. Does that work?

      June 26, 2013

    • Sandy

      I am about 98% sure I can go if I can park there. Only need to ask work and arrange for Evan to go to Ian's.

      1 · June 26, 2013

  • Jessica C.

    I can fit 2 or 3 tops with gear. We'll need two cars. Please indicate if you can drive. Thanks!

    June 26, 2013

    • Christina

      If there's still room, can I grab a ride with you? Thanks!

      June 26, 2013

    • Jessica C.

      Yes, no problem.

      1 · June 26, 2013

  • Christina

    I've always wanted to do down there. I'd be in!
    ... I don't have a car but I have a tent!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
