We're driving out from Ontario and picking our '19' up on May 26th. Plan on going to Nk'Mip on the 28th. Looking forward to meeting lots of 'Escapees'.

For those attending I highly recommend some sort of shade protection, a lot of these sites are out in the open with little tree shade, I brought a handy shade canopy until the Shinook winds made me take it down, it does get very hot when sunny, it is in the desert area of BC.

The wind sure can pick up there, and as you mention the sun can get quite hot too, but I have always found that the wind is not too bad during the day when the sun is up, and our awning always is then. The only time I have ever got up in the night to retract my awning was at Nk'mip.

Those strong winds there are not Chinook winds though. Chinook winds only happen on the eastern slopes of the Rockies, in Southern Alberta. They are caused by moist wind from the Pacific coast cooling as it rises to flows over the mountains, the rapidly warming as it drops down the eastern slopes. The wind can be very fierce, but the warm weather usually associated with it during the cold of winter is often welcomed, although it can make a mess of the snow on the ground. Temperatures can rise over 20°C (36°F) in a few short hours. Ian, Gabi, and the rest of the Calgary/Southern Alberta gang, will have experienced many Chinooks.

Just sent in a reservation request. Hopefully I will hear back soon with confirmation and to give a deposit. In the past, they have not been all that great at communicating though, so will follow up in a few days with a phone call if I have not heard back.

Darn! I wanted that site.
So, this year they are taking reservations for specific sites?
