We have been busy over the last few days doing a number of things, mostly marching. Up hill and down hill. There a few flat spots but here in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia they are few and far between. There have been lots of inquiry as to when and where we are going to be so I will try give you as clear a picture as I can.
Tomorrow, the 15th of March we will stepping off from a point 20km outside of Castlegar. From there we will be marching into Castlegar itself. There is going to be a function at Castle Theater at 6pm here in Castlegar where the team and I will be meeting anyone who wishes to attend.
On the 16th of March we will strike out towards Salmo which is 42Km away from Castlegar. From Salmo we will go to Creston B.C. which is 83Km from Salmo. The team and I will be pacing ourselves as we negotiate the mountain passes. We will have to pick up on the 40km a day average when we get tot the prairies.
Barring any major weather events, which are entirely likely, I predict we will reach Creston in approximately 7-10 days. If you want to come and say "hello" look for us during the day between Castlegar and Creston on highway 3. Lethbridge is about a month out so lots of time for us to plan on meetings and whatnot.
This is James Topp and to everyone we have so far I say Thank You.
