Off To The Calgary Stampede to #ExploreMore with Ford

Yes, you read that right…I’m literally typing this post out on a plane 35,000 miles up in the sky. When I got on this morning it was pitch dark out. Most everyone is asleep on the flight or watching Mall Cop 2. I’m working. This is a tough gig. I have to fly all the way to Kamloops Canada from Orlando. Once I get there I’m going to have to drive a brand new 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum all the way to Calgary.  Can you believe this job I have? I still pinch myself occasionally.


This adventure tour started this weekend with the first leg in Vancouver and ended yesterday in Kamloops. Today I will be getting into Kamloops to take over as we set our course for adventure to Calgary! I’m so excited to check out the new 2013 Ford Explorer Platinum. I heard it through a good source (following the hashtag #ExploreMore on Twitter) that this vehicle has massaging seats. I can’t wait!


Want a glimpse into what I’m going to be experiencing over the course of the next three days?

If you’re into nonstop flights and quick getaways, this is not the adventure for you. If you’re a fan of some of the most remote landscapes on the planet, then you’re at the right place. This drive begins in Kamloops, British Columbia, crosses the Canadian Rockies and ends in Calgary. You’ll overnight in Revelstoke, near majestic Glacier National Park, home to more than 400 glaciers where 12 percent of the landscape is covered by perpetual ice and snow. There’s cerulean Lake Louise, and lovely Moraine Lake boasts views for which there are no words, though you can try. The best way to top off a day of driving Explorer Platinum? A gondola ride in Banff, or a scenic drive around Lake Minnewanka – we promise – would be unlike any exploration that’s come before.


Please join me on this adventure following the hashtag #ExploreMore on social.
