Road Trip from Montreal( or Toronto) to Vancouver
Posted September 17th, 2013 - 6:56 pm by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Hey guys!

My two housemates and I (in our mid 20s) are doing a Road trip from Montreal to Vancouver with a Van and we are looking for a group of people (Max 4) or Individuals who would like to join us :)

We are originally leaving from Montreal and plan to stop in Ottawa, Toronto, and Niagara Falls during the last week of September. Then we would leave from Toronto and plan to stop in Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Banff, with final destination Vancouver.

We are very chilled, easygoing, honest, fun and happy people, hoping to find similar people who are also fun, honest and easygoing, who we will become our friends during the trip and who would like to make new friends along the way. People who want enjoy the amazing sights, and all the amazing places we will visit and have a great time! We plan to visit the Rocky Mountains, Banff, and check out other awesome places and would like to share this lifetime experience together.
Our itinerary is flexible and we have a general idea of the places where we think it’s best to stop and where we have some friends, but if you would like to visit some places or have friends along the way we can talk about your options and discuss them with the other people travelling.
We are planning to find cheap accommodation along the way and hope we can also look into sharing depending on the city and the options and everyone’s ideas, but you are free to book your own accommodations in each city and we can drive you there.

Our van is a Dodge Caravan, in perfect condition, already insured and ready for us to travel so this saves us and you the high cost and worry of renting a car and getting it insured so all we need for this trip is help with money for the gas and perhaps tolls if there are some. Gas estimated is $195 if you are leaving with us from Montreal (or Ottawa) OR $180 from Toronto (or Niagara Falls) per person given we are 6 in total in the van. Since we are planning to spend a week total between Toronto and Niagara Falls if you are from Toronto you can just join us from Toronto. We want to keep our trip safe and have safe fun, so we don’t want any drugs or alcohol while driving the van as we don’t want any problems with authorities along the way.
You can email me at felipe.vecino@hotmail.com or call or text me at (604) 358 7007 if you are interested so we can start organizing who want to join us in our trip :)
Hope to hear from you soon and I put below out tentative calendar so you have a rough idea of what we would like to do. Cheers!

Felipe, David, Mishelle :)
