Re: Escape Rally in Merritt, BC

Looking for some advice here, Lisa and I are taking a 5 day weekend, any idea where someone might find a party going on?

We will not likely be leaving until somewhere around supper today, and with eight plus hours of drive time, not sure where we will make it to, but might stop for a sleep somewhere. We still should be in Merritt early in the day tomorrow.

Do you think maybe I should put up that Halloween photo as an avatar?

I think I will spare you all in Merritt and stick with a cap if needed.

Definitely faster then my 19, which is still parked in my drive 8 hrs away. I am just going to throw some clothes and camera gear together, maybe have a shower for the sake of you all, then off I go. See you tomorrow morning at the latest.

Re: Escape Rally in Merritt, BC

Well, it's bound to be sunny with all of you guys there together. Whatever the weather, it will be nicer than our forecast thunderstorms here in Vermont. We would be there if it was only 8 hours away... We'll be looking for photos of wigs and other things too fierce to mention.
