Well we are finally on our way and believe it or not the '79 Dodge "Royal 200" (aka 'Nilla, Vanilla, Van Illa, Big Beast, Love Bus) made it effortlessly through the Rocky Mountains. There were a couple of rather steep hills that she had to chug up, but for the most part she took the Rockies by storm.

We left Calgary on December 22nd at noon and rolled into Vancouver at midnight. Once in Vancouver we hooked up with Michelle, who was kind enough to let us crash with her for the night. The following day we toured Kitsilano and headed over to see the Cardwell clan for dinner. Dinner was cut short though as we wanted to catch the 9pm ferry to Victoria.  Apparently they have a savings program that offers discounted prices for off peak hour sailings and we wanted to take advantage.
