Yeah I hear you, but a good co-driver is worth his weight in gold. 2400 miles from BC and I.m sure it's all of that and more from your neck of the woods.

Although I'm flying in and renting an SS I'm sure there will be a few cars from BC making the trek to fest. At some point I'll start a west convoy thread.

Probably pick-up a dozen more Camaros in the greater Toronto area taking this route. The hour we'll shave of the route doesn't hurt either.
