Eleven Arrow Lakes ATV Club members set out on an epic journey from Nakusp to Fauquier on Saturday, Sept. 7. The troupe ranged in age from 11 to 69, and they hit the trail early, setting out at 6 a.m.
“The skies were cloudy but our spirits high,” said club treasurer Pat Knecht.
The four-wheeled travellers rode the rail bed to Summit then up the Shannon Forest Service Road, and from there they followed ATV trails, forest service roads and power lines to Fauquier.
The 170 km-long journey took about ten hours, and after taking their ATVs back by trailer, they celebrated their marathon ride with a chili dinner.
