Well.. at the moment... co-pilots for me are still up in the air.. If John can't come and the S4 doesn't sell... then Andi (my fiance) will be joining us in on e of the Esprits. If not, then it may be Gary in one of the Esprits. If that happens though, then Andi will probably go ahead with our radar detector and cell phone on speed dial to warn us of any speed traps etc.. So, regardless... Andi will be on tour... we're just not sure what she'll be in.

Modifying esprit's.. now that's fun..

now some people are saying this should be a lotus only drive but the thing is not everyone can afford a lotus right now or if they have one it might not be running right now. i don't think this should mean they cant go on the trip. true the focus of this trip is the lotus badge but it shouldn't only be for lotus owners it should be for lotus lovers.so i think that if your truly into the lotus but cant drive it they why shouldn't you be able to drive your regular car (just at the back of the line that's all). now i now there are a few people on this forum who will disagree with me on this fact and may even get rather angry that i am pushing the idea of ruining there special moment because they own an esprit. now i will leave this thought at that and let the rest of the group vote on it as to whether or not this will be

i just don't think you should have to own something to enjoy it, after all how many here can afford a rembrandt

We have another possible car... I can't remember if he has an S1 or an S2... but Richard Ellenthorpe may be joining us if he can get out of his current plans with his wife (which he sounded like he wanted to)

--Depart Medicine Hat @7:00am

--Meet at COP @9:30am

--Depart COP @10:00am

--Arrive Banff @11:15am

--Eat at St James Gate Irish pub untill about 12:00pm-12:30pm

--Depart St James Gate and drive up Highway 1A all the way to Lake Louise for photo op at the hotel if we can get into the circle... if anybody has a better photo destination, we will be discussing some of this in the 1/2 hour before we leave (arrival time to be about 1:30pm)

--Depart Lake Louise and head back to banff @2:30pm

--Arrive in Banff @3:15pm

--Now I need to figure out where to go from here... We will play this part by ear... and possibly end up at the hot springs... weather dependant.

Hi Mark,

COP is Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. Cop is on #1 highway or you can call 16 AVE. If you go to Banff from Calgary, you will use #1 highway. Do you remember before you get on the #1 from 16Ave, you see that skijump on your left. There is COP.

We can meet at the coffee shop across COP (the other side of 16 AVE. COP on your left and coffee shop on your right if you go west on 16Ave to Banff.) You will see Petro Canada gas station and a McDonald. There is only one coffee shop and a car wash beside. You will not miss.

9:30am??? OK

Thank you and looking forward to see every one.

Eddie

P.S. my # is 403-605-6065 you can call me if you can't find COP on Sunday morning. I will be there around 9am and having my coffee.

Yes, I am sorry that I was not able to join you all....

Congratulations to all for making this initial run a success, and for the inspiration to do it again.

Hopefully I will be on the next trip!
