probably the only sensible post in this thread. Giving advice to someone on the internet about backcountry travel who has clearly demonstrated they underestimate the risks involved with such an activity is reckless and irresponsible. Maybe this is why i see so many dumb assholes in cotton tall tees on the side of route 6 that think they're the shit because they built a booter 1000 feet from the road. It's that attitude that encourages people to keep pushing it until they get in a situation that is over their head, at which point in most cases tragedy strikes.
To the OP, i don't intend for this post to be a jab at you, or any of the other inexperienced people out there who are interested in getting into the BC. I too have been in your position, and we all start out that way: inexperienced. I have made stupid, mis-informed decisions and gotten away with it narrowly, sometimes on my own and sometimes at the recommendation of someone I perceived to be more experienced than I am. My point is, it's great you wanna get out there and kill it, just do it the right (read: safe) way, and save me the sinking feeling of reading about someone dying needlessly in a place that I like to associate with good times.
That's like saying "I hate when my beer is cold" or "I hate when titties are nice feeling". Get outta town.
