2Life is slightly more complicated than that. I meant to go visiting a friend in Cranford and found out later that she won't be there. I will meet her in Vancouver instead later.
I found the earlier suggestion very assuring and comforting. I know how to use a map and a guidebook but they are never as good as advices like the one I was given.

4I think the OP means Cranbrook. Part of the confusion is that he changed his trip from Vancouver - Cranbrook to Vancouver - Banff. However, the suggestions of routes in his previous thread still apply. Just extend the drive from Cranbrook to Banff and there you go! You can take Hwy 1 or Hwy 3 or you can go to Jasper on Hwy 5 and then down the Icefields Parkway to Banff. All good drives!

5Yes I have changed the trip as the friend who normally live in Cranford won't be there during my time in Canada - I've said this in one of the above responses. I am not going to Cranford anymore but would like to visit Jasper, Banff and Lake Louise from Vancouver.
I am hoping to get there and back to Vancouver in 6 days. If this proves to be too tight I might fly one leg.

7Just rent a car in Vancouver and drive to Calgary via Kelowna, Banff, and Lake Louise. Then fly one way from Calgary back to Vancouver.
6 days would give you a good experience, not to rushed going from Vancouver to Calgary, plus you would save a lot of money on gas by just flying back to Vancouver from Calgary.
