Note to anyone driving. I drove from Montreal to Calgary in just over 50 hours. I'm glad I took the forums advice and brought my car but I will never drive that distance again in that little time.. More than once I almost went off road because of nodding off. Sask. and Manitoba are a super easy drive but Driving through Ontario when I was near Thunderbay was a nightmare at night. Next time I take the American route.

Let me know if anyone wants to share living arrangements I also have a second guy who will also be down.

I don't think I'll ever drive across Canada, I just drove 12 hours from south east Saskatchewan to Edmonton yesterday and I was beat, I couldn't imagine driving for four or five days straight.

Good luck in Cowtown man you picked the nicest city in Alberta to live in, I hope you find work quickly and to the rest of you RVF guys in Hellberta, have fun freezing your asses off this winter, I'm flying to south America on Thursday, suckers! Banana

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
