I cant believe you would have skipped Vancouver, being that close. You cant miss the Wooden Rollercoaster...it is the greatest!!!

Looks like a fantastic trip!!! [B-o]

The most interesting part of that trip will be your ability to stick to that schedule. It's ambitious but I like that you have a plan. I'd like to compare the actual trip to the plan!! :D

I know, we will probaly make more though. See its either do Seattle/Vancouver on another trip and be able to relax and sight see. Or add it on this trip and only spend about $75 more.
It should be enough time. Ride the coasters (wooden one a few times), check out the rest of the park.

I know, I cant believe it either. The only thing I am worried about is not being able to shower in a hotel for the first 3 days. And the fact that this is 9 days...but I think it will be worth it.

We are completely finishing up the entire rim of the US/Canada border.

Oh yeah, and $700 is the entire budget of the trip :lol:

8O 8O 8O $700 budget!!!

Showering is easy...go to rec centres and pay the drop in fee. In Vancouver you can use the Y downtown showers for, I think, a twoonie.

I'm scared now.

I should probaly really think logically about this. Ok, we have 2 drives over 11 hours and we are only 2 people. And my friend likes the plan trip and not leave time to sleep.

I really hope this plan goes through.
Worst case, when were in Idaho we just go to Calgary :(

YES- we both have a passport ready to go

Oh no, it is $700 each.

The break down:

$200 for park admissions and parking
$300 for gas each
$100 for food
$100 for hotels each

It will probaly be a bit more then we planned though.
