My friends and I will arrive Calgary the day before the tour. Renting a car for the week. We will explore Calgary for a few hours before we head out to Canmore on the 10th. See you all there.

we have been very busy with a visit from family and the death of my father so we have not "prepared" for this trip. have you been hikong a lot?

Margaret Coffey May 25, 2013 at 12:53 PM

I've enrolled in the August 11-17 program, and I'd like to spend a couple days exploring Calgary after the program. Anyone interested in exploring with me, and perhaps sharing a hotel room?
Susan Brainard Jul 16, 2013 at 10:11 AM

Hi Margaret, we also are planning on staying a bit longer but do not know what we will do with our time. We have only reserved a room at the airport for our last night. there is a big international festival in Calgary.... We might like to be out hiking in a park. Still looking at ideas.

I will arrive in Calgary on 7/13/13 for the program and stay one night in a hotel. Seeking a female roommate to share the room and to share a room during the week's travel. Anyone interested? Gwen, from Philadelphia, NJ & SF Bay Area, 2 grown children. What else would you like to know?
Beth Brooks May 12, 2013 at 05:08 PM

Gwen, I've done a number of RS trips and always sign up for a double. I've usually not a had a roommate, but the couple of times I did, they were very pleasant. RS people just seem to be a nice lot, and you can trust that they'll match you with someone compatible!

Margaret Chester Aug 27, 2012 at 10:42 AM

I will be arriving in Calgary on 9/8/12 for the program and staying in airport hotel for one night. Willing to share room with one female group member> Maggie Chester

Beth Brooks Aug 18, 2010 at 10:12 PM

I need to be there for a 7 a.m. flight on 9/4 and can't locate a car rental online from Canmore.
Is anyone in the same predicament? My only choice seems to be going to Calgary on Friday for the night to make my flight, missing the last dinner of the program.
William Sessions Aug 01, 2012 at 04:09 PM

Just in case you didn't get my other note: No car rental in Canmore, so we're forced to come back to the Calgary airport and rent there (for 2 more nights in Banff). Lad
