There were all kinds of uncertainties regarding the road conditions to the lodge. Before leaving Vancouver I first I called the Chilcotin Forest District office in Alexis Creek. They promply told me to call the Cariboo Highways District who didn't know anything and in turn redirected me to the Nemiah Valley band office. There a woman answered that her uncle had tried to drive up the road but had only got as far as Twin Lake, then continued on snowmobile. I was not sure if she was referring to the same road that I was inquiring about and couldn't find Twin Lake on any map. About a week into our ski trip, Yaron Kiflawi was supposed to drop off my car somewhere along the Lillooet River road as far up the valley that he could drive so that we would have something to drive home with.
Our two-vehicle convoy left Vancouver and turned north at Hope. Then we effortlessly rolled along the Thompson River, through Cache Creek and 100-Mile House to Williams Lake. From here we headed west on the Bella Coola Highway and then turned south onto a gravel road near Hanceville. The eastern edge of the Coast Mountains eventually came into view as we headed south.
