About 100 cars up here. Weather is great, not too hot, not too cold, just right. It rains some so we get free car washes. Lake Louise is beautiful. The Foothills Club are feeding us like Kings and Queens and princes and princess'.

Great Pic Kirk, We've really had a wonderful time and visited some "Once in a Lifetime" places.

Google Canada's Museum of Making for a glimpse of what we saw. Totally unbelievable collection of things displayed in a person's home/museum which was better than any museum quality I've ever seen!

Today was a lot of rain but a lot of brave T drivers for a most beautiful run along the snow capped mountains.

Haven't heard of any broken cranks yet, but one rear wheel lost luckily without any injuries.

We topped out on a 65MPH run on the Trans Canada Highway #1.

It did rain a bunch and was a tad on the cold side. A good day to appreciate a closed car or side curtains. A great ride though in our coupe.

That was our 27 Fordor you followed a lot of the day as seen in your pic, Kirk. Was even a little chilly even in the enclosed cars. But, what a drive we had. Saw burnish sheep and a grizzly bear up on the pass.

A little out of order but here they are from Day 2, Pioneer Acres.

Not 1 or 2 torpedoes but 4

Day 3 was Museum of Making - pictures do not do it justice.
