Default Killer Road Trip Planning for Summer 2013

Ok... This is a big one for me.
I'd love to plan an awesome road trip for us from
Vancouver to Kelowna to Osoyoos
Vancouver to Osoyoos to Kelowna

No date planned yet.
Summer obviously.
Feel free to help with the planning. PLEASE HELP!!!
Alot of you asked me to put this together so lets see how this works out.
Please don't put your name forward if you can't commit.

Tentative plan. Specific dates to be determined.

Friday morning or friday night departure?
I only ask as some ppl my have a hard time taking a day off work.

We might want to break up into a morning and evening departure
And also break into mini groups when we reach the major destinations as not everyone will want to do the same thing in which case, we'll need a few mini group leads

Gas up and be packed
Walkie Talkies???
Charge GoPro

Friday morning (Time??? between 6-10???)
Tim Hortons Marine & Byrne
Grab breakfast and coffee
Wait for all the lazies to get of bed (I'll try not to be one of them!!!)
Stop in Hope to gas up and stretch our legs for a bit
Boogey to either Kelowna or Osoyoos

Things to do in Kelowna
Mission Hill (I'll try to organize with mission hill regarding photos or lunch or wine tour or whatever)
Little Straw - amazing little winery
My friend has a little Viet restaurant where we could grab a meal
Quail's gate (nice little winery and pricey restaurant
Kettle valley bike ride (i know one of the guys that works for the company that supplies bikes... although most of us will want to start off in the middle. the beginning is treacherous without a 4x4 or a car we don't care about. logging roads
amazing ice cream joint. (I had you at ICE CREAM didn't i?)

Things to do in Osoyoos
burrowing owl (nice winery and restaurant)
small amusement park
church and state (one of the best wineries)
silver sage (most entertaining wineries)

crazy cliff dive + lunch/picnic

chill in floatation device and cruise down the river

Does sound killer. Drift through the canyon at 130? I won't commit, but I am interested. I do like getting drunk in places other than here.

As for planning, just pic a weekend and departure time. I am sure people have their own interests and once people are up there they will spread out to the wineries, pubs and beaches. Having a dinner together the first night there would be good, figure out when everybody should be up there (including stranglers) and have a rez someplace for 2 hours after that. After that though, I can just see people going off and doing their own thing and maybe coming together in small groups to get drunk or sight see.

I will keep watch on this thread.
