Salmon Arm, Kamloops (Permanent 40)
I finished the route in 8:50. It was -10c this morning when I left my house, and I think colder in Salmon Arm. My camelback was dead weight- froze the hose solid before my first drink, wouldn't thaw even under my jacket. Stopped at my house for a bottle of warm water, then bought Gatorade in Kamloops. That didn't freeze. Otherwise pretty uneventful. Still lots of sand and gravel on the shoulders, and the odd icy spot. I am looking forward to warmer weather for the next one.
