The first of the workers at the Hyatt Mercedes service department arrived at 6:15 am. By 7 everyone was there including a line of vehicles waiting to be dropped off for service. We met with a service representative who took our information and invited us to wait until they had the time to check out what was causing our problem.
We found it amazing that with no ability to arrange a prior reservation, our situation was accepted immediately. The test of the engine showed a glitch in the notification software. The computer data was reentered and updated. By 10 am we were back on the road.
We were back on Rt. 2 now continuing on toward Edmonton and beyond. The landscape was a mixture of beautiful deep green colored farm land and prairie as we continued north westward through picturesque rolling hills. Our intent for the day was to gain driving distance.
By 5 pm we had travelled a long distance and decided to call it a day at the Whitecourt Lions Campground, We chose this place because of promised wifi at the our site…NOT! There are about 50+ sites and the wifi hotspot can accommodate 4 users. At least it worked if we sat at the designated picnic table. N 54° 06’ 47” W 115° 38’ 50”, elevation 2,407 ft.
