Driving Icefields Parkway and Camping in Banff in Early Autumn


2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK1 Lifted in Banff

Last September we drove from Jasper, Alberta to Banff, Alberta following a family wedding we attended. The Icefields Parkway is a stunning 232km of some of Canada's most beautiful landscapes and vistas, as you can already see. When we got to Banff, we spent one night in a campground before we headed back up to Edmonton. We highly recommend taking this trip at least once in your lifetime!

Drumheller, Alberta in the Heat of Summer

Drumheller is located in the Alberta Badlands and is unlike any other area in our province. It is home to an incredible abundance of dinosaur history, giving it the title of Dinosaur Capital of the World. Visiting this small town feels like visiting a different planet.

USA Road Trip Part 6: Napa Valley, California


Goodman's Department Store Napa Valley

Once we started our trip back home to Edmonton, our first stop was a night in Napa Valley. We visited the Castello di Amorosa Winery with Jenya's brother and family. It was such a cool place to visit, and even though it's not a real historical castle, it was a fun adventure exploring all of the areas of the winery.

USA Road Trip Part 5: San Francisco & Santa Cruz, California

Three days of our road trip were spent in San Francisco / Berkeley to visit Jenya's brother and his family. Driving our huge lifted Jeep through downtown San Francisco was definitely an adventure. Let's just say we aren't the biggest fans of huge cities. However, we did some some really beautiful sights while we were there, amidst the crazy coastal winds and copious amounts of people.

USA Road Trip Part 4: Trinidad, California

Trinidad is a really neat cove that we enjoyed along our travel through California. It used to be a small fishing town back in the day but now it's mostly a tourist attraction consisting of parks, beaches, vacation homes, and quaint gift shops and cafes.

USA Road Trip Part 3: Northern California


Huge Redwood Cut Down

The land of the giants. The tallest tree in the world was discovered here back in 2006; it is ~800 years old and measures in at 115.6 meters/379' 4". Red wood forest is a must see for everyone - there is nothing like it!

USA Road Trip Part 2: Washington & Oregon


Sand dunes beach in Oregon

The second portion of our trip took us from Kamloops, BC (Canada) down the coast to Eugene, Oregon (USA). Everything got very green - very fast!

Calm Okanagan Lake in British Columbia Canada

The beginning of our epic journey across Western North America! We started from our home in Edmonton, Alberta and traveled across the pacific coast all the way to sunny (windy) San Francisco, California. Enjoy the journey.

Twin Lakes, Alberta

Amazing weekend at the lake, off-roading, exploring west-central Alberta, and celebrating Canada Day at home.

It looks even more different now, since the Glosso carpet didn't workout according to plan. New photos to come soon.

Signaling Issues in Oldsmobile Intrigue


This 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue was having issues with the signals. It was random occurrence where the signals stopped working and the relay would not actuate. It is a fairly simple and cheap fix.

Changing Spark Plugs on the Jeep SRT8


A quick how-to on changing the 6.1L Hemi spark plugs. I used NGK LZTR5AGP which are pretty much the factory equivalent. The 6.1 Hemi takes two spark plugs per cylinder, so make sure you pick up 16 spark plugs. A swivel socket attachment helps a lot to do the back plugs.
