As one might expect by the name of this rally it would be a cool one.

The weather forecast was not very encouraging. I debated whether to take the route straight north and go over Kootenay pass and risk ice and snow or take a longer route around those mountains. I  called the border guys Friday morning and they highly doubted any snow up there. So I decided to go for it, over the pass. It was around forty degrees when I left home, but the electric gear and two balaclavas on my head made for fairly pleasant traveling. When I got to the Canadian customs, I made one mistake. I had my earplugs in and his first question was: Where are you from? Only my ears heard, where are you going? I gave him my license and when he saw my answer didn't jive with the address on my card, it set wheels of suspicion  in motion and I had to have a criminal check done. Luckily, it did not take long and I was to the top of the pass in about 40 minutes. There was some snow on some spots on the ground but the road was bear and dry. That was a relief. It was smooth sailing all the way to the rally near Penticton on Skaha Lake. We were right on the beach with all the facilities. That evening we sat around the fire and watched the almost full moon come up over the mountains and reflect on the lake. I got tired of my self-inflating mattress always going flat on me so I took my old large air mattress and it really went flat on me! I did manage to get some sleep though as I have developed more natural cushioning this last year. The morning dawned a colder and misting type of weather. Martin had the coffee made so we warmed up with it and some "porridge". Chris and I were not going to let a little nasty weather stop us from having a GS ride into mountains! So we marked our route on the maps and GPS and headed out. The light rain would not let up so we donned the rain gear and pressed on.
