I'm based in coldstream so leaving from Lavington. Interested in any feedback/suggestions for a trip I'm planning weekend after next.
So my plan for our next trip is almost the same as the trip we just did for the first day, hwy6 over to Nakusp and then 31a at new Denver to kaslo and onto Nelson. But then continuing on a bit again on Hwy 6 to Ymir to try out their incredibly reasonably priced hotel. Anyone with any experience with the Ymir hotel I'd love to hear about it. Looks like a cool funky spot to lay ones head and about a third of the price of staying in Nelson. Could maybe push on a bit further the first day but am really attracted to a cheap place to stay.
2nd day gonna head *south on 6 again to salmo and then 3b over to trail and then 22a south to cross over the line. Which becomes boundary Hwy I believe to Northport where I want to cross over and take northport flat creek Rd down and over until it hits 395. Then north on 395 until we hit boulder creek Rd. Take that over to curlew and depending on time cross over at Danville or continue across if we can make the midway crossing in time. Then crowsnest to 33 and home. We have done hwy33 three times already this year so might change the route home too if possible? I love that Rd but it is fast as fuck. Bit of a roll of the dice if there's enforcement by chance.
i know a bunch of you here have extensive travel in these areas so open to any feedback/suggestions at this point. I feel like the bc section is pretty solid, although I'm not that familiar with the south east bc area salmo and whatnot. I've also done some reading on some solid reports here about the two Washington rds I want to connect but if there's better routes or something I'm 'just about there' but missing out on I'd love to know about it.
Im starting to feel panicky about the season wrapping up! Gotta plan, gotta ride!!
