    Hi Yvette ...

    You can count on me to lead a drive (or two) this season.

    I'll be easy to spot (and keep up with ) in the
    "signal orange" 914 I'll be enjoying this year!

    sincerely;

    Rick

    Yvette, I can help lead a drive this season. I"d like to do an early morning drive along 1A to Lake Louise and then onward to the Columbia Icefields, returning via Hwy 11 and 22. It would be an all day event. Likely would involve a bring your own picnic lunch to have somewhere near the Icefields.

    Drove my kids to Jasper camp last summer up 93 and loosened my fillings in a softly sprung minivan due to frost heaves, cracked and rough pavement . Thought a great road for the TT otherwise.

    Wifey remembers occasionally bumpy to Saskatchewan crossing then becoming much worse continuing north on 93

    They've been doing some work to the south end of the road for the last couple of years - adding passing lanes and the like. I liketo do this drive leaving Calgary around 5 am - only way to get out ahead of the Brewster buses, RVs and cyclists!

    I think this is a really good drive idea, Kev. Also think a traffic-beating earlier departure is a good idea too -- big drive so will provide a longer day for stops etc. .. I went up and down 93 a couple of times last year, definitely some bad spots but I'd say generally manageable/dodgable.

    As someone in need of instruction, I would really like to see some DE events. Recognizing, of course, the dearth of local venues.

    Not a knock against touring however - I enjoy those drives as well!
