    Hi All,

    Time to pay back for all those rides I've had in the past...
    I'll be coming down from Vernon, so will be passing through Kelowna with an empty car. I can fit another 4 people plus gear. I'm on the avalanche course so need to be up there for 12. Also, I plan to stay overnight. If anybody needs a ride, let me know.
