You have hiking boots?! :) Where are you going with those?

I had old, well-used hiking boots that got gross in the basement. They hadn't been used in ages because adventure racers use trail running shoes for everything! We're doing a backpacking trip from Nipika Lodge this summer and I figured my ankles would thank me if I gave them some support. We are spending a weekend in Canmore too but alas, you will be away racing. :(

I've only done 4km in my new boots - so I'm not sure that's "way" ahead.

I was thinking you had tested your new hiking boots for 16 km in the Hockley Valley but I looked back just now and saw you only tested your new trekking poles. So you are just 1 km ahead and I will try to catch up! :)

Assiniboine via marvel pass?

The four of us are guinea pigs for our old (yet still young) friend VO2Max, who has graduated from Thompson River U and is designing some adventure programs for Nipika Lodge. It's just a short trip - 3 days of backpacking in the Royal Group on and off trail. 'Bent and I will be getting ready for Ultra Tour Monte Rosa so we're planning to do some mountain running in Canmore the weekend before (and hopefully meet friends for dinners) and we'll have an extra day or two of mountain fun around Nipika before heading home. For us, it's just a week with two weekends on either side but Coach LD and Goose are staying on for additional adventures.

Cool - I'd looked at planning a trip there a few years ago but it never happened. Mt King George is on the list of 11,000 foot peaks in the Rockies which is what brings most people into that zone.

I didn't know that! I might take a few photos. :)

What?! You will be here and I will be away?! We did not co-ordinate our schedules :(
If that's the case, you're more than welcomed to stay at my place when in Canmore!

Too bad we'll miss you and Amik.

Thank you! We didn't want to impose on friends in midsummer so we just booked a condo. We wanted an extra bed anyway in case Goose and Coach LD are there with us for a night. We are disappointed to miss you this time but we hope to catch up with other Canmore friends and we'll just have to come again to see you and Amik!

If Coach LD and Goose need accomodation, they're welcomed to stay at my place:)

You are so nice! Our condo has an extra bed for them - although they may stay in Calgary anyway.

Will you be home on Sunday night after Broken Goat? Maybe we can see you after all!
May 17, 2017 10:45 PM # 
Yes, I should be. We will stay in touch :)

@Carbons and Slice, I'm hoping to see you too but I know it's too early to make summer plans.

Cool! When are you in Canmore?
