LR Driving School in Canada

Related to the other post on spotting the LR3s...here are a few pics from the LR driving school my girlfriend (yes, she totally did it) and I went to in the middle of nowhere, Quebec, Canada. Basic, but we were there, and it was fun taking a Disco around the kiddie track.

Yeah, the instructor was a private nature preserve employee M-F (tree/nature husbandry and such) on his weekends, he takes out new LR drivers, the press and LR bigwigs on trips.

Cool deal!

Anyone who equates Montreal with "the middle of nowhere", should trade their 90 for a Lexus.

Didn't Thomas Jefferson live there?

I went one of those LR days with my dad after he bought a Disco. I especially enjoyed the wine and cheese afterwards.

I didn't get anything like that...just jumped into the thing...drove 20 minutes on a dirt road and got to it. I did see a covered tent/pavillion type of thing...I could completely imagine champagne, wine and cheese in there.

Now, YOU live in a pretty place. Alberta's nice...very nice. I saw a travelogue on a BMW motorcycle route they have through Alberta.

There is some nice country out here no question. Banff, Jasper, and the Kananaskis have some spectacular views. Waterton - Glacier on the boarder with Montana is awsome as well.

Cheers
