Making Excuses for a Road Trip

Last October brought a longing to ride new terrain, see new places and make excuses for a road trip. Driving the 6 hours from Whistler to Sombrio inside a fierce storm, it suddenly dawned that this may not be the ‘best’ time to go beach camping. In hind-sight, the weather made for an incredible trip, bringing 4 friends together around a campfire sharing the warming delights of mulled wine.
