RAV AND TOAD - In conclusion
We're home and just sorting out Toad so I can leave with a buddy fishing in the morning.
Our Egg neighbors at Kane Lakes showed us a short cut to the Coquihalla Highway that saves distance and altitute. Probably cut 45 minutes off our trip and saved a lot of gas.
The 2008 RAV V6 and the Escape
are a winning combination. Tows like a dream. On the freeway, I had a hard time keeping to the speed limit of 100 kph. Kept creeping up to 110. Hit 120 at one point passing a line of trucks going up hill. Had to get out of the way of cars doing 130.
Once, a semi passed us causing the canoe to shift six inches from the pressure wave. RAV and Toad didn't notice a thing.
Love RAV, love Toad, love my wife for letting this all happen and apparently enjoying it.
