    Is there anyone on the confirmed list that can either give rides from North Vancouver or needs one? Currently, I was going to rent a car and take Joseph and Emi with me; however, rentals are quite steep for next weekend. I believe Joseph has an option to hitch a ride with someone else, but myself and Emi definitely need rides from N. Van as buses don't run that early here. If renting is my only option, then I prefer at least one more person to ride with us, otherwise I'll take a financial hit (and may end up cancelling)

    • Emi

      Thank you, julie! will email you my contact number.

      July 22, 2014

      Nafees - I still have lots of room in my van if you want to meet me at the church, and anyone else let me know.

    Herbert, I am very sorry I have to cancel. I just finished a Lynn Lake hike which took us 9.5 instead of planned 8 hours, the terrain was worse than even the organizer thought.. I anticipated this hike to be easier, but my knees are definitely done for this weekend.

      Jjulie, Herbert, I think I can't go with you guys right now, because I will go to watch firework on Saturday... So I guess I come home could be..... about early morning.

    The reason for the early meetup at the church is due to the long hike and time taken to drive to the trailhead. The team has to work around the logistics to help those who do no t drive. Make use of the comment section to work with each other. Appreciate it.

    If anyone can give me a lift coming from the Surrey area that'd be great. Otherwise, I'll meet you at the Church Hugh Baker!

      Hi Hugh, may I confirm a seat with you? I think I can meet you at Gilmore. If I get a ride to Church, then I'll meet you at Church instead. Thanks!

    Hello, I wonder if anyone can offer me a ride from Vancouver? I live along Canada line but I should be able to meet you at most places in Vancouver. Thanks!

      A ride to Church may also be useful too. Thanks!
