My wife Geiger and I are looking forward to this adventure, and to exploring W. Canada by auto between Duluth, MN and Banff. However, contrary to the assertion that there are "no surprises", we were surprised learn that we have to pay extra to get from the Irwin's Mountain (or Motor) Inn back to the start at Best Western Port of Call Calgary. In both of our previous Road Scholar trips we were transported back to where we started, without any "surprise" costs for transportation.

Anyone on the tour interested in sharing a cab to the Calgary airport very early July 26? Turns out my flight leaves too early for the airporter van. I will need to leave the hotel by 4:0 0a.m.

Oh, I see from your other post that you are in a later group.
