Near Edmonton to Aspen Crossing

Friday - A nice view from the front porch of the cabin. Just as a quick comparison, we are currently getting around 20 to 25 mpg on the Jeep depending on whether we are towing the trailer. Or about $400 for fuel. If we drove the RV, the fuel would be about $1300 for a 2000 mile trip. This is assuming that gas or diesel was around $4.50/gal. Actual cost is a bit higher and about half the time, diesel was cheaper than gas. At least in Canada. The $900 difference more than covers the housing cost though it would be much more convenient in an RV. And, if we didn’t have the trailer, the trip would be a day shorter. 

We are visiting friends who are work campers at Aspen Crossing RV Park. It’s a large park that actually operates an event train on fourteen miles of track that is no longer used. We are staying in the parents trailer. It’s a really nice place and we are returning with the RV near the end of the summer.
