Jerry’s 4,200 Km trip in Honda Acty

Jerry wrote to us from Fort Assiniboine, Alberta.

A few weeks ago in the last week of September, Jerry, his wife, youngest son, and their dog drove their Honda Acty MiniVan half way across Canada to visit family in Ontario. The 4,200 km trip took them through Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. One can only imagine the beautiful fall scenery this time of year.

Through varying gas prices, the total cost of the trip was under $300.

Jerry writes, “That was an awful long drive in one of these little beasts but the economical factor made it worth while.”

As if that wasn’t enough, he’s also took his entire family (five plus the dog) on a thousand km tour through the┬áRockies (Banff and Jasper National Parks).

Jerry also owns a Daihatsu Hijet which has become his daily driver and hauler. As you can see from the photos, his vehicles take a lot of abuse.

Jerry notes "There's still spring left!"

The 350 Kg rating gets disregarded.

He says of his prior vehicles, “I wouldn’t want to have to go back to regular pick-ups.”

We wish him the best on his next trip!
