I suggest this ride in the middle of night. I left Edmonton at about 6. In Alberta there was traffic. Then I got to Edson, and everyone got off at tim hortons. I pressed on. Then I got to Hinton, and everyone remaining got off. I pressed on alone to Jasper. Eventually cars and trucks caught up. They all got off in Jasper. I did too, I needed gas.
But they all stopped and I got back on. There was very little traffic now.
Then I got off onto highway 16. I drove 276 kms and saw 21 other vehicles. In the last hour of driving before town, I saw only a snow plow and one semi.
