Trip to Tremblant

Took our first road trip in the Compass last week, to Mont Tremblant (~2 hour drive), loaded up to the max with bikes and essentials (suitcase, travel cot, food, helmets, stroller etc etc!)

We had a great time, no troubles with the Jeep or the bike rack. Only real issue is acceleration while aircon is on - maybe I should try the peddle reset trick?

I got roughly 21mpg, which isn't great but we did use the aircon 75% at least, so I can't complain. I'm just used to getting 44mpg in my old diesels in the UK

Anyway, here's some pics (didn't manage to find any trails or get a good vantage from up high with the Jeep though):

Looks nice. I've always wanted to get up there and only about a 3 hour drive for me. BTW, what is the pedal reset trick?
