    • Stephane C.

      Awesome days despite the 60 zillions switchbacks lol. Well the only reason we could keep up is because you were going at 20% of your regular speed ;-)

    that's great Alina. Stephane if you add an 8th person to the trip each driver will have a car load for such a long distance.

    I will be going and can drive. The faster hiking pace can keep me awake. I won't have a whole lot of sleep.

  • Alina

    I have a small car, chevy 2 doors. If nobody wants to drive, I will. You all have to fit in my car lol.
    I agree with place and time.

    Since no one has commented on the trip yet I guess I will. we will have to leave Calgary around 6:30 AM to get to Canmore by 7:45 am. Let's meet at the usual place, Dalhousie C-train Station. hopefully we will have enough drivers, if not Stephane you might want to add Peter or someone else on the waiting list who is willing to drive.

    September 11, 2013

  • Darcy K.

    I will say yes for now. I have to see if I can get off work early on Friday? Evening shift.
