|Expect the unexpected|
Already I can sense some disagreement as to how we're going to do this. One child is more than happy to put all his camping gear into the car and ride his bike unencumbered to the next campsite. Whereas my youngest wants to carry all her gear on her bike. I'm in the middle - the idea of just carrying the day's requirements is appealing, yet to do the trip proper, I want to carry all my gear.

There are two major scenic routes along the KVR. There is the loop from Penticton east to Rock Creek and then up to the spectacular Myra Canyon but includes the deadly Anarchist Mountain climb. The campsites are plentiful and most of the overnight stops have full washroom facilities.

Who carries how much gear on this trip will depend on how much conditioning each of us has had during the season and since we are thinking of going after the Labour Day weekend, all three of us will have had the maximum amount of training time possible to prepare before departure. My wife points out that she won't have to train at all to be able to press the accelerator on the car.
