Trying to get the last of the summer in! A little Zoom Zoom day. Sorry for the shaky dash cam, apparently I need to tighten the bracket 😬

Ugh I am so jealous of those roads, Id have to drive hours just to see something that even remotely looks like that around here and even then would end up in intersections and traffic somehow Wouldnt mind taking the cx3 or the saturn sky down something like that haha

@SlyCoopers Yes I have to say we are pretty lucky. I even posted to my friends to not forget about our back yard and go out to enjoy it.
Further up ahead there’s a series of turns that make the paddle shifting a lot of fun lol. The only thing that freaks me out a bit is the deer darting out from the side of the road.
I also had to beep beep some sheep out of the way going up the mountain 😂
Get up here next summer. There’s tons of places to Mazda or Saturn up!

Well crap...guess it’s time to dust off the winter tires methinks. That just came way too soon lol.
Low profile all seasons are NOT Betty’s favorite winter shoes.
However, it was a great excuse to take a snow day off work!

Agreed - however, I did not take a day off work. Time to switch to winter tires is a little early, but this cold doesn't seem to let up; that's a record for early snowfall 32.8 cm or 12.9 inches.

and another season begins...

Hopefully your commute wasn't too far! Ya that was pretty brutal lol. I did TRY to go. Office is in the SE and I'm in the NW lol.
Took 16th to 68th instead of Stoney (heard someone took out a light pole) and the ruts chattered the car around so much I basically said NOPE and turned around.
Definitely changing out regardless as I need to go either Rogers Pass or Crowsnest on the 17th.

We need to steal @SlyCoopers setup for the winter...be the North American BFG KO2 Club (NABFGKo2C..a way more epic acronym than NAFTA/USMCA)
...See if Fountain Tire gives us a deal on 8 of em...CASH! lmao

Road Trippin

Well, after a bit of a hiatus and a 4000km road trip throughout British Columbia, Bitchin Betty came through with flying colours. Not one single issue.

We pretty much hit all 4 seasons and one really sketchy mountain pass blizzard but snow tires were swapped in beforehand (also helped that we were loaded up to the max with gear and us 2 humans). Definitely used the AWD capabilities to the max lol.

Short vid of us creeping through the bushes to get to a remote mountain cabin in the middle of the night.
Bigfoot did not make an appearance but we were more weary of a chainsaw wielding Jason-type character to "cut" our vacay short (that and the bears were not in hibernation, and the cougars are cheeky stalking maulers).

I did overlay some spooky music, a wolf howl, and a random scream....more to cover our constant yammering about whether or not we took the right trail; and our obvious terror.

Enjoy!

( @SlyCoopers we definitely could have done withe some KO2's here )
