Great news, Jim - and good to hear from Cariboo folks.  If such works into my plans this summer, will definitely try to stop in to meet a few new faces and share tales.

How's your own operations going up there?  And maybe your reply would be best served in a different posting to leave this post aligned to the subject of intention.  I'll generate such new topic and look forward to your comments, and that of our colleagues in the Cariboo region.

Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Hi everyone:
I am quite new to all this but thought I would mention that I just checked the Quesnel Chamber of Commerce site and there is no mention of the August camp-out. 
Exactly where (Quesnel forks is mud to me)  is this camp ground at that was mentioned for this galla afair.

Just in case you are still wondering where the heck Quesnel Forks is!
Aug. 1,2,3 and 4, 2008 at Quesnel Forks. 

Quesnel Forks about an 11 km NW of Likely, BC.
This in turn is about a hour drive NE of Williams Lake, BC
