    Hi Herbert...looking forward to tomorrow. Do you have all the vehicles that you need for everyone?

    • Herbert

      Affirmative; 4 in my vehicle. Others will be waiting at Abbotsford.

    The issue is that I am heading S after the hike. I would be better off crossing the border at Abbotsford/Sumas on the way back rather than coming all the way back into town.
    Are these pretty decent instructions how to get there?

    Meeting at the exit off Transcanada may be another option.

      Sounds like a plan. I will be looking for Jenna when I get there.

    Jorg:
    Do you want to meet us at trailhead or at Wal-mart like most others? The trailhead is not easily found.
