nice day in Northern BC

Took the new 110 for a day out in the field. It performed great and had a great time. Now my buddy wants one to. It is like a virus
tomorrow i will change the tires for BFG KM 2.

I have one of those - "it would be so cool to..." ideas that involves taking the Defender into some remote back country zone via some cool trail and getting out with the snowboard and either snowshoeing or skinning up to grab a bunch of nice turns. Your first photo reminds me of that a lot!

Great pics and the BC mountains and your 110 look amazing.

O jeez - don't do that to me Andy! Very nice offer and would love to get to BC again. And Revelstoke is supposed to be sick! (I have seen it in a bunch of snowboard videos). But with the schedule my family has right now it's hard enough to just get up to Vermont. One of these years tho - love the BC terrain, the vibe and the people are the best. Tons of characters that have tons of fun.

That is one of the reasons i live here. Great outdoors, best fishing in the world and some nice trails and terrains to really enjoy the 110.

Unfortunately living in a ski resort has one downside, trails & logging roads don't get snow free until about late April or into June in some areas, then expect fresh snow mid October. Makes for a very short wheel'in season locally unless we head to lower elevations.

Hopefully we'll be heading to Seattle & the NW Overland rally in June... Would like to head up north too this year before the snow flies....

It could be a lot worse - here in NJ we don't even have hills never mind the real mountains you folks have And it's about 6 hours to some decent ski/snowboarding and 2+ hours out to PA for good off road.

Plus you guys get to buy and use a sweet snow machine or snow cat for the winter

Another one of my Rover dreams is taking a year tour up into the PNW/BC with a good rig. Ride dirt with the pedal bike and truck In the summer and then snow all winter. O well, add it to the bucket list...
