Day 8: “Why is Quebec so French?”

Longest Covered Bridge (in Hartland, NB)

Woke up this morning in the land of the French. We bid our French friends goodbye and toured the city for a bit. By the time we left Quebec City, our French was pretty genuine. Our thank-you note below can attest to that. We also checked out the ramparts before we left (old quebec city […]

Checking out Parliament

Being in our nations capital, the first thing we did was wander around Parliament Hill. Next, we took a quick drive to Rideau Hall and checked out the Prime Minister’s residence. Back on the highway, we plotted a course to Montreal. Just before the city we passed a milestone. We entered the sixth province of […]

Day 6: Highway 401 – 10/10 would not do again

Everybody put your hands in the air!!

We woke up early again to pack the van and head to the highway. Yesterday we had tweeted to @Telus regarding our lack of cell coverage on the Trans Canada Highway. We awoke this morning to a reply from Telus support on Twitter. After a bit of back and forth and their attempts to save […]

Day 5: Radio Silence

What's over there?

Bright and early we assembled and left Thunder Bay. Quickly after leaving we all noticed that we had no reception. Rogers does cover most parts of the Trans Canada but we all have Telus phones. And Telus only has a cooperative agreement with Bell. So we were without contact until about four in the afternoon. […]

The first, less impressive Ontario sign

Hot shower and home cooked breakfast from our awesome hosts and we were out of Winnipeg and back on the trans canada. The morning drive was pretty uneventful as we flew into Ontario. Right before the border is a small Welcome to Ontario sign with almost no shoulder on the highway. It was so small, […]

There's the Moose of Moosejaw

We packed up and said goodbye to the Calgary folk. Bright and early we hopped back on the Trans Canada. Made a few stops on our way to Winnipeg. First, had a nice lunch in Swift Current and said hello to a fellow WESSTie. We also stopped at Moose Jaw, just to get a picture […]

Gridlock in Rogers Pass

Started the day by packing our trackside campsite. In the night, a train had actually stopped next to us. Packed the aerostar and onto the highway. Drove for a little bit then grabbed some breakfast at a quaint little lockout next to Shuswap. Next, the rockies. We were in luck, as there was construction at […]

Day 1: To the loops

Posted by admin on August 23, 2013 in 2013 Cup Run |
what were you expecting here?

Day 1: To the loops To start the day we loaded up the van (aka Cathy) with all of our luggage. After a heroic rescue of Baman (David West) from his Elec 250 exam we headed off to the start line. On our way, we had to make some classic Victoria hipster stops. First, some […]

Freshly Painted Aerostar

We are about to lose all contact as we enter the canyon, so the tracking might be all jumpy. Wish us luck.

Freshly Painted Aerostar

It’s actually happening. What started out as a crazy idea at a nuclear industry conference a few months ago is about to become reality in a few short hours. Some background, for the uninitiated: there are several engineering schools in Canada. Geographically, the school the farthest west is the University of Victoria (UVic), and the […]
