Factual error: Ben stops at a rest area near Hope, BC. He is headed for Vancouver and Vancouver Island. Leaving the rest area, he turns right, as he should, to head for Vancouver. The highway sign points left for Hope, BC, and right for Vancouver. I've been at this rest area, and the direction he turns toward Vancouver is correct. However, the next shot shows him going through Hell's Gate tunnel, which is north of Hope. He would have had to turn left, go through Hope, and 40 or so miles north to go through the Hell's Gate tunnel. The next scene shows him on the ferry to Vancouver Island, which was in the direction he was headed when he turned right from the rest area. There would be no reason for him to turn around and go through the tunnel, as he was already heading in the right direction.
Plot hole: Ben is shown riding his motorcycle around Radium Hot Springs, BC, and the narrator says after riding six hours he was cold and wet. The next scene shows him checking into a hotel in Banff, AB. It makes no sense for him to ride from Banff to Radium, then back almost 2 hours to Banff over the mountain pass when he's cold and wet. There are plenty of hotel rooms, even at peak season, in Radium and Invermere, BC. He was not riding at peak season. During the whole movie, the point is to head west. The scene supposed to occur the next day shows him taking a photo at the Continental Divide, which is between Radium and Banff, meaning he *was* heading west, so it makes no sense to double back to Banff.
