I'm from Edmonton, Ab, and when I was offered Troop 24 (Jan 12) back in early December, I was asked if I preferred to drive or fly. I chose the drive option simply because I have family along the way to break up the 800 km drive, (I also had no where to park it for 6 months) :) On that same note, a friend of mine, also from Edmonton, was given 3 days notice for Troop 21. Driving was not an option for him, simply because the lack of time! Seems to be a case by case scenario. I also won't be reimbursed for travel since I'm over that 650 km limit. Win some, you lose some, but if you would rather drive, just ask when you are offered a troop if it's an option for you!
Hey everyone, tried finding a more updated answer to no avail, this is from 2015. Was wondering if bringing your vehicle to depot is still an option and if it is would parking be available or not? Thanks 😊
I currently have my vehicle at depot. Parking lot is gravel, no plug ins, and not close to the dorms. But it’s still worth it. I lived 800km away and was on the hook for all expenses.

If only this question was asked/answered before. To be fair though, there's no way to look back at previous posts. A keyword search would be a great function for the board.

Definitely bring a vehicle if you can, or become friends with someone who as one, makes life a whole lot easier.

I rather you hold my hand and answer it for me. Cause that's what friends are for.

I plan to bring mine and have already routed the trip. It’s 2,600km though haha. Going to give myself 3 days to do it

Same here, only 1,958km from Vancouver Island. It'll be a nice final road trip with the wife before six months away and then fly her back home, it'll be helpful to have a vehicle at Depot.

Would be great to have my car there, I didn't get the option but I probably wouldn't want to do that drive out anyways. Thankfully Regina isn't huge so cabs/uber isn't too costly and enterprise still offers cadets a pretty good rate.

Cabs and Uber are crazy expensive here imo. $45 round trip to Walmart and back

That’s why I want to bring my car. If you need to visit the store or go off depot let’s say each weekend it’s 26 weeks x $45 which is $1,170 for just basic Uber rides. So if I bring my car I not only save money but I’ll be able to help people in my troop by driving them where they need to go when I can. Seems to be the most cost efficient route to take, granted I have my psych on Feb 4th so need to pass that first, then medical on the 12th. Then I can worry about all this haha.

I've been in the CAF for about sixteen years and been on about a dozen courses of similar length (3-6 months) while living in shacks on a base. Having a vehicle to get away from the course grind or helping out your course mates is worth any extra inconvenience/money getting it there. Always better to have it and not need it if that's an option for you.

For those bringing their vehicles from another province. Does Sask not require you to re-register the vehicle in Saskatchewan within a certain time frame?

And let's say you can keep your plates and insurance from your home province, wouldn't you need to up your insurance coverage or check with your insurer to make sure they'd cover you while driving in Sask for 6 months?

Anyone have insight into this?

6 months as a temporary resident wouldn’t make you change over. If you get posted there and actually move there... different.
