First full weekend, 500kms and awesome background

After 10 weeks to the day, I got my 2011 WK2, Overland, V8, Mineral Grey last Saturday. I picked it up 2 hours after an all night flight from Maui to Edmonton. No way was I going to sleep. I picked it up at 10am when the dealer opened. I got to put about 80km on it between Saturday and Sunday. Then Monday I had to go to Calgary for work until Thursday. So today, for Easter, my Mother and I headed to The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. I put about 350km of highway driving at about 120km/hr the entire way. What a vehicle!

My mother was very impressed. She was in my previous C300 and she drives a 2009 Volvo C30 T5. She loved the ride compared to my father's previous Tundra and current Chevy 2500HD. She has a bad back and the combined seats, QL and lumbar support were amazing. I'm more than impressed.

We got to Jasper and I haven't seen many WK2 in Edmonton yet (go figure). But in Jasper I parked behind a White Gold Overland V8 with Saddle interior from Calgary and saw another in white. Jasper is the place to be with the WK2

Anyway, so far no issues what so ever! Love it. Here are a few pics from my BB Torch

Even the Elk where like...Damn! Enjoy!

Re: First full weekend, 500kms and awesome background

Great pics - brings back wonderful memories of driving the Banff-Jasper highway, which is one of the most scenic roads in the world.

What a treat! Hawaiian vacation and then home to a brand new Wk2!

(OK, I have to ask ... did you try the West Maui loop?)

Re: First full weekend, 500kms and awesome background

Pics were so great that I dug around TripAdvisor, then chatted with my wife. She tells me she has several relatives in Alberta, so we just might get up there -- after we get the new (2012) Overland, naturally.

You should get a job with the Alberta tourist bureau!

I think Jeep and Travel Alberta should do something together. So many great places. I'm spoiled. Going to Jasper is common and so is Banff. I also work for a company that owns the Fairmonts in those locations I'd go either way, but it makes it so much easier.

You'd love it here. Just wait till I upload the pictures from the Columbia Icefields that I took earlier today.
