Let me walk you through the evening routine from Sunday night...
 
At the dinner spot (Lake Louise Visitor's Center carpark), Reid decided that his distance goal was to be between 400 and 410km for the day, he was at the 332km mark at this stage. Hedgy and Dan set to work looking up possible campsites or pull in areas 70 to 80 km down the road. This led us to the town of Canmore, outside the National Parks.

At 5:45am, the team saw Reid off after a big bowl of porridge and a prayer. Everyone was in high spirits and seemed to have had a good (though, short) first night's sleep in the vehicles. Our overnight desination was Salmon Arm, some 466.4km from Vancouver. Not quite the 40 hours push of the original plan... "go with the flow".
