First Aerial Video

We were back in Squamish Area last weekend. My new friends Cedric and Krista joined me on this adventure. Cedric is an aerial videographer. I was so excited to have them with us for aerial videos and they were so excited to see what my jeep can do. It took us 6 hours to drive to the side of the lake and only 45 minutes to come back the same distance. There were close to 20 dead tree falls on the road. We pushed and pulled and managed our way through it. Cedric was only able to do 1 flight by the lake right before it got dark.

Snow Wheeling

This is the video of our 3 runs over 3 days. We started on January 1, 2013 in West Harrison area. On 3rd we went to Eagle mountain and on 6th we were on Britannia FSR. We had plenty of snow. I broke my steering stabilizer on Eagle mountain. Britannia FSR was full with fresh snow. We had to some logging but hey! this is how we maintain our access to our back country 🙂

 

We went up the Mamquam River FSR last weekend. It wasn’t a technical ride but the scenery was well worth. We also had a couple in their 2012 new JK Rubicon. It was the first time they took their jeep offroad. I hope they liked it. My jeep is a lot of fun after the mods but I sometimes miss the stock form of my jeep when I see other shiny stock jeeps 🙂

 

Eagle Mountain

This is our trip to Eagle Mountain. It is one of my favorite wheeling trails. The trail is non stop rock crawling all the way to the top. At the top there is a lookout with beautiful views of Vancouver and North Shore Mountains. There is also a big rock at the back of the lookout where you could take your jeep on top. You definitely need spotters there not to drive off the rock into a 40 feet drop.

 

This is the second part of Snow Jeep movie. This is our trip to Eagle Mountain and Furry Creek FSR. Lower sections didnt have snow but upper parts were packed. It was a awesome day for snow wheeling and to try some different angle shots.

 

Ashlu Mines

This is the video of our trips to Eagle Mountain and Squamish Valley FSR. Second part of the video is in Squamish Valley area. We went to Ashlu and Cloudburst Mountain. One weekend we tried but we couldnt make it to the top in Ashlu because of snow. We went back the next week and the snow was gone. We went all the way up to the old mine site.

 

Whipsaw 2012

This is our trip to Whipsaw Trail in Princeton, BC. There were 17 jeepers in our group. It was also our friend Pat’s birthday so we celebrated it on the camp site. The movie is two parts which contains my videos from 3 days of Alpine scenery, wheeling and our camp site.

Trail Info :

Most of the trail is driven close to tree line but in several places it goes into alpine meadows where views from the top are breathtaking on a clear day. The Falcon Hill Climb can be trying for some trucks, but the result is exhilarating. Rough spots start after about 24 kilometres of forestry road access. There are a number of rock shelves/ledges but all can be accomplished in dry weather. The Ditch can be the most difficult impediment to cross depending on precipitation. Highest clearance 4×4 with lockers should go first to recover those that get stuck. The east end of The Ditch has a 50-60 centimetre wall that can be difficult to surmount. Numerous attempts to bypass the most direct crossing have resulted in a large quagmire which extends extensively to each side of the trail.

The trail can be done in one day depending weather/trail conditions and experience of the driver. It is suggested that one leaves at least 1.5-2 days to do this trip as there are many ponds, cabins, mine sites, side trails to explore at a relatively leisure pace. • Trail Head – the start of the trail (south to north direction) comes after about 6.5 kilometres of forestry access road. Most trucks stop to air down before heading out onto the rocky trail. • The Grave – shortly after heading out on the trail, off-roaders find themselves at a single gravesite surrounded by a meadow and trees. • Granite Mountain Meadows – At the highest point of the trail there are open meadows with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. • The Pond – Many off-roaders stop at this serene spot near the meadows to rest and have some lunch before heading toward the more difficult area of the trail. • Shelf Climb – the trail has a number of rock shelves that are slightly difficult in dry weather but can pose a threat when wet. • Falcon Hill – legend has it the hill was named after Skip Marsh, who in 1979, successfully drove his 1966 Ford Falcon two-wheel drive up the hill. • The Ditch – Varies in depth, depending on the time of the year. Add snow to the mix and it will prevent some off-roaders from making it across. Last difficult part of trail. • Load Stone Lake – Heading down the mountain, off-roaders will experience a series of sharp, steep, downhill turns before reaching the lake. • Granite City Ghost Town – the area just south of Granite Creek is often used as a campsite by off-roaders. The creek flows into the Tulameen River.

Mineral Peak

Aug 12th, 2012

This is our last trip to Mineral Peak. On the way, we stopped at the old ruins of Britannia Copper Mine power plant. From there we came back to Britannia Creek Fsr and followed the route up to get to Jane’s Basin.  This was area where they used to dig and move earth.  We decided to go further up.  That was best decision.  We started climbing up the mountain in our jeeps. The road started getting narrower.  We had to some sharp hair pin turns which had some pucker factor built in it.  One side was mountain and the other side was a sharp 1000 ft drop.  Once we get to the top we were surprised to find out that the top of mountain was big crater from all the digging.  The scenery was breath taking.  The peak itself is like a big crater or a big hole on top of the mountain. It must be all the digging for the minerals.

Indian Arm FSR

Aug 26th, 2012

Wigwam Inn is at the north end of Indian Arm, BC. It is a high end restaurant/inn where rich and famous hang out. The only access to the restaurant is by boat. Well, that was untill we got there by our Jeeps. We decided not to have the dinner there because we werent dressed properly 🙂 It wasnt easy to get there by our Jeeps but some people said we couldnt do it. We decided to take the challenge and try. The rest is history now 🙂
