Well, my car seems to be running on the hot side lately and this drive would really test the cooling system. So I'm not going to waste the day, I was 50/50 all along, 50% drive, %50 cut the rust out and start the other side, rust repair has won out this time.
Also have to do some plumbing work for the Inlaws.
Take lots of pics guys and someone needs to step up and write the RBH article for the newsletter !

I'll be cutting my car up for the next week.

so where should I sit on the highway and at what time ?... if I was to take #1 from north burnaby when I get to 232st it looks confusing with all the loops is it better to sit further down it looks like you guys have to use 72nd ave off number ten to get onto #1

Just bought a suction mount base for my new Sony digital camera that I won at the AGM - I figure it's worth a try! The mount will work for the Handy cam as well I think.
Made some sandwiches (Hungarian sausage/ bologna with German mustard and havarti.. damn near ate them tonight!) , froze 6 small bottles of water, charging the batteries as we speak - I think I'm ready to go. See you all on the south end of the Alex Fraser about 5:40am :shock:

I wouldn't be worried about heading out. Just on the way back...


Any one up for having ice cream in Abby instead of Hope? We could call it the July meeting! :D

There was nothing official published for it, and I'm sure we could get a couple more people to meet up with the cruise if we had a time set...

otherwise, have a great cruise! I'll be in the 'wack working on the wagon.

Whoo Hoo, nice fast run, everything was great! Thanks for organizing again! Wow, traffic was ugly on the 10 coming back Keith! I just got a call from Alveen, turns out he woke up late and headed up the canyon and ended up in Lilloet, seems as though he got the wrong idea where we where heading :shock: !

Another good run, my GPS says we logged 630.6 kms, driving time of 3:40, with an average speed of 85.9 km/h - the overall average including wait time was 61.5 km/h and we were stopped for a total of 2 hours and 44 minutes - my max speed was XXX km/h - I kind of like this toy. I put it in the car just to have a speedometer, but the stats are kind of cool.
The heat wasn't too bad today at all - I give two thumbs up for the weather. I have a bit of colour as usual - a cold shower that I just took may take some of the colour away.

I tried out a new camera mount today, some of the stills look pretty shaky, which doesn't surprise me as the whole mount was doing the funky chicken at speed. But I had about a 50% success rate overall; The shots out the rear were not good, only about 2 of 2 dozen actually are viewable. I must have had the mount a little looser or something. I just tried the video that I took, for some reason I don't have the codec to play it, I'll have to look for the disc for the camera, but I'm not holding any hopes up for this due to the vibration in the car. I used my 5 year old Nikon camera, as the new Sony camera batteries did not charge (operator error last night).

Traffic was heavy, to say the least. From 10am on, it was pretty much a freight train with a few squirts. I got out front for a few km's and opened up a bit, however even starting at 5:30am, we still didn't get ahead of all the RV's - there were a few already on the road. Petty crazy, but this is what makes the fall trip so much fun - no vacation traffic! And the roads are near empty early in the am.

The good news was that Smokey must have been on holiday. I don’t think I saw 1 cruiser on the highway all day! Not that we could have been caught speeding if we wanted to, but just the same I think this is the least amount of presence I've seen on this route in years.

James and I were likely 10 minutes behind you Jason; there was light out at 168, it took about 10 minutes to clear that.

Keith, I look forward to the Oktoberfast cruise.

I’ll post photos later.

I had stop-and-go traffic from just after 200 St all the way to the Port Mann.

I would have gladly paid the toll (even though I bet I wouldn't have been tolled with a temporary operating permit) and taken Lougheed home but 192 St only is accessible eastbound!

Download a movie player called VLC, it's free and it can play anything.

Well, that was another great drive, great day, great company! Weather was darn near perfect, cool heading up, and not too stupidy hot heading back, other than that dead light at 168th. I was able to negotiate that with no problem, again that second fan has proved it's worth.
As Byron said, other than a few sections that were clear, we really did have a lot of traffic on this run, full summer traffic, and Albertans that can't drive in the mountains.
Based on Byrons distance with the GPS, and I will fudge down a hair, as we did virtually the same distance, I got about 23 - 24 MPG. I just made it back to the plant on 16 gallons of fuel. My A/F stayed in the high to mid 12's for the most part. As I am in the second season of de-tuning my car for slower speed stuff, I think I have it almost dialed in, thanks to that wide band!!! Wow, could I have used that 20 years ago. I have been sticking with the "CHANGE ONLY ONE THING AT A TIME" rule, so it does take time, when you only put so many hours on a vehicle.
We still ended up with a 12 hour day, spending time at the Look Out and for lunch, then our Dairy Queen break back in Hope, before the boring haul back in on the #1.
I saw 1,400F. on my exhaust on one of the hill pulls, so I'm in a good zone there. I put my BP9ES plugs in for the drive back, and they looked good when I got back to the plant. I think the hottest I saw my water was maybe 180F, and my oil pressure dropped 5 -10 lbs on that pull up the Mine hill.
Sorry of the pictures are not super clear, as I have to re-size from 9 mega pixels/widescreen, down to the forum size.

Jim, while I think of it...your air dam was folding back at freeway speeds! You need to make a brace for it.

After inspecting my air dam moments ago, the middle dzus clip doesn't engage properly. I'll do something about that.
