    Re: 911 Meets the Whales Road Trip: 9 days, 4300 km, prairie to ocean

    4trac:

    That’s it – hope all enjoyed this as much as we enjoyed this little road trip. While there is not much “technical” driving on this route as it does not have high alpine passes, most of the roads have 100 kph limits, and little policing outside small towns with 50 kph limits (police are often there), so realistically much can be cruised at 115-125 kph speeds.   The almost constant high speed sweeper turns  and elevation changes for the Alberta – BC portions make the driving interesting, and of course the 911 just eats this up.  With only 55,000 km on our 911, we are still a long ways from the high mileage kings like Carlos and Leawood.... but this reminds us why we love these cars.  

    Cheers!  (and, this was a good way to reach my 1000 post milestone!)

    Such a cool trip - amazing place we live in Smiley and you did this in a 911, I'd love to do that someday! 

    Great pictures of the scenery too, you must have a really nice camera Smiley

    PS. Love the fluids, that's caring and smart.

    Yes, we just have to book the time to do these trips - the places are always there.  Re. the oil, it is admittedly a bit over the top, but I once had an incident where motor oil in standard litre cans leaked on my clothes - which ruined the clothes.  These Nalgene bottles are more leak-resistant, and the container for them is a second layer of protection.

    Fantastic thread 4trac! I fell in love with Canada and the BC region when I visited for work/family in 2012, and I love to see that you guys enjoy your own country as well :-)
    Wonderful pictures showing great photography skill and I really liked the tourguide  comments kiss

    Absolutely gorgeous! 

    I too went whale watching last month (Hermanus near Capetown)  but was violently sea-sick. The swell was immense..

    Thank you so much for the beautiful photos and your great travel report...it certainly got me thinking if I shouldn't visit Canada in the near future. Smiley Smiley
