Canmore camping

The Campsite

Mike just got back from hiking the Appellation Trail, so we had to get out camping. With no programming at all we drove out Spray Lakes Road behind Canmore until we found a great spot on the side of a little lake. We were really worried that it would get cold overnight but we figure it hardly got below zero.

In the morning we met a few people at the disc golf course and plauyed a couple of rounds. Great fun.

Bill also loaned me his OBD II connector so I could check the mileage in the Jeep. We learnt a ton using that thing. Basically it sums up like this:

  • If you go uphill, gas mileage is terrible
  • If you accelerate, gas mileage is terrible
  • The difference between maintaining 90km/h or 110km/h is negligible.
  • The Jeep averages 20mpg

Checkout the beard that Mike is sporting!
