Trouble on the mountain

Driving along in the mountains and suddenly ‘POP’… we were able to pull straight into a pullout fortunately. 77km before Banff.  

38C (100.4F) temperatures, climbing through the Rocky Mountains was just too much one of the coolant clamps.

A little snafu

A clamp had come loose in the inter-cooler pipe. Blue in bottom right corner.

We called CAA and they sent a truck. Very quickly in reality but seemed forever in that heat. 

I was able to make my Stinging Nettle Tea while we waited for the tow truck since Stacey had brought a camp stove and kettle.

Loaded and headed for Canmore, AB


  1. There's always something to mess up the best laid plans. Hope your back on the road soon.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the journey.

    It's about time.

  2. Well, that was a kerfluffle right at the beginning!! Hope things are fixed and you are on your way by now.
