The distance between the two cities are about 4000km and the plane ticket is about $600.

I don't know how much that would cost driving? I got a small car MPG (30)? google map has 1 day and 18 hours to get there,

what would you do?

hmm, using a quick trip site to calculate, I got about $460 for a trip by driving. I'm leaning toward taking the plane over driving for three days and having to stay in motels, it'd be cheaper to take a plane!

Are you going back to Calgary? if No then take your car, if Yes then fly

5-6 day in motels $65-80USD a night Loaded cost of driving about $1usd/Mile. Value of your time? lost work days? Value of vacation days?

Unless you just want to drive, taking a plane is the best course of action.

3 days drive minimum.

Learn to sleep in your car. It'll save you thousands in a lifetime of motel charges. Even in a small car, you can sleep nicely in the reclined front passenger seat. There is never a problem finding a safe place. Truck stops are fine. Parking lots of all-night highway gas/convenience stores, but tell the clerk, and park where he can see you. The lights will be bright, so rig up a piece of cardboard to block the light. WalMart parking lots, there will always be several RVs there, too. If you don't see any RVs at the WalMart, ask at the service desk where they would like you to park overnight.
