  • Shell Eco-Marathon Running Diary: Day 2

    March 27, 2012 Following an early start, the trailer was loaded and the vehicle secured and ready for travel. With a final wave from team members the truck and trailer pulled away from the UofA campus and was Houston bound. The first destination was Calgary, where our driver helmets  needed to be picked up. Having done this the next stop was the border. A couple coffee and food breaks later and with no problems at the border we’d passed into the state of Montana.
