That sounds like the most economical and reliable method of going from On to BC. Enjoy your fly and ride Todd. The flight with Air Canada is around CA$336.00. And you would be leaving at 00:30 am to arrive at 07:30am, good to get a snooze in before your cross country. :roll:

Gotta one up Todd here. Buy me the gas card and I will chip in $50 on the plane ticket, I will ride it out to BC and plane home. And visit Todd while I am there, LMAO.

(just kidding, but I am sure just about any of us would be willing)

Another offer that will be hard to pass up:

Buy me a return ticket, and I will pay for the fuel, and oil change (with filter), at the end of the ride!

This is getting like an auction. :shock:

Like I said, your method would be more economical and reliable. Having shipped a GW once before in the USA, picking it up was not a problem, getting it delivered was the problem. They took about a month longer than they said, even after they picked it up.
