I'm with Beer N Meat. Its way to dry to be out right now. I'll enjoy the outdoors by backpacking around Strathcona!

2 months 3 weeks ago in Labour day weekend trail run

Hey Reanne, I was up the 5040 road today, on my way to triple peak. The road has been cleaned up a lot due to the new hut on 5040. I bairly need 4wd at all, only used it as a precaution to make sure I didn't have any issues. Most of the cross ditches have been filled in, not smoothed over, but filled with blast rock. There's also a new parking area at the trailhead. We did hit some snow that need crampons and ice axes on our route up triple peak, but 5040 looked clear of snow!
This might be the summer for you to check it out!

My personal opinion, after seeing some videos where people got thrown out of truck bed on some large whoops. Is that I would never put a dog in the bed, I don't know what I would do if I had a pupper get injured from something on the trail.

Looks like you got into Wheeling for the same reason I did! Currently I'm self taught. I watch YouTube videos in my spare time, it's amazing what you can learn from seeing the lines other people take through trails.
That being said, is also about knowing your vehicle and what it can do. Every time Im out I try and push my limits within reason.
Have fun though, this is a great community and everyone seems to be willing to share some info.
