  • I'll be wearing my PokerNews cap.

  • We'll visit all 140 communities that make up Metro Vancouver (in alphabetical order). Today we'll walk all the way down from the top of West Vancouver to Dundarave. Seeing the city lights below should make the long ride up worth it.

    For those who like: Seeing the city lights from high above West Vancouver. We'll also be seeing some pretty fancy houses along the way.

    Starting Time: start meeting up at 5:30 - walk starts at 5:42 PM (when the #254 bus arrives)

    Getting there: The #254 goes here and comes all the way from downtown Vancouver (or you can catch it at Park Royal)

    Cancelled If: If nobody signs up.

    Pace: Normal (5 km/hr).

    Distance: 9.5 km. 

    Time: approx. 2 hours

    Elevation Gain: 800 feet downhill.

    Washroom Break: dunno

    The end of the walk: 25th @ Marine Drive

    On my testwalk I also noticed that although we're starting at the northernmost point in West Van it is not the highest point. We actually have to walk up 250 feet before we start down over 1000 feet (the last 800 feet down are in the last 3.5 km).
    Sorry Liz, this one might not be for you!

    My map looks o.k.

    Photos from the test walk added. Since I did this walk in the daylight you'll have to imagine what it'll look like with the lights on.

    I've just had an idea. There is no way that Meetup could know where "500 Block" is because it's a bus stop address not a street address. That means I must have corrected the Meetup point map manually. Meetup, however, is showing the corrected map on my computer only! Everyone else gets to see where Meetup thinks the starting point should be. Does anyone have the Meetup point map showing the corrected map of St Andrews in West Van?

    Meetup strikes again! My map by the meetup point and my route map show the same St Andrews. However, Josephine once showed me her hand held thingee on a walk with a totally different meetup point map. And now you folks have the same problem. It looks like Meetup customizes the Meetup point map on every computer in order to confuse everyone. From now on, we had better just ignore that map by the startup point as it cannot be relied on.

    Oh, yes - the St. Andrews you have in the meeting place map is different from the one in the route map, Dave. You might want to fix that!

    This walk is definitely West Van - however there is also a St. Andrews in North Van (just to confuse everyone!)

    Well, the map link at the top of your page describing the walk is for North Van. If you say the meet up is in West Van, then it's in West Van. But the link to the map shows North Van., i.e. Lonsdale Ave, St. Georges, then St. Andrews.

    Hi Dave,
    The St. Andrews you are talking about, i.e. the meet up spot, is in North Vancouver. Start in North Van, end up in West Van.

    Cheers!

      According to Google Maps, it's in West Vancouver. Let the debate begin!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
