Something tells me this is going to be a good ride to follow.

Good luck to you

"fully automatic, high powered firearms" & in Canada? Either some Yanks that took a very wrong turn or this going to be a very short RR.

Maybe he decided to camp at the RCAF Base just a bit south of Moose Jaw.
I don't think the MP on watch would wake you gently.

Me too dude!!! In my 18 years in this country, it has been my experience that the most beautiful girls always come from the prairies. Hallejuliah! Thank heavens for farmers!!

P.s. when's the next installment coming? I think this is going to be good!

You shooting film for some of those photos? (Coke wagon, Kawi-pot, CNP?)
They've got a cool look to 'em!

The size is good for my computer - but you wouldn't want 'em any bigger. I would recommend Smugmug, too. It ain't free like Photobucket but it is good value and worth every penny. They are offering a free trial right now - might be worth your looking into it.

Looking forward to the next chapter!!

I've done all those roads in various installments. Awesome ride, except for Saskatchewan!

3A is excellant. I did it on a Gamma many moons ago. The back road to Kelowna is a gas. A guy on a wing thought he was being chased by a motorboat....

This summer I did a smaller loop through 3A (Keremeos), Jasper, Calgary, Penticton. I still love the climb into and out of Osoyoo's.

I'm looking forward to the rest.

Bikes are like women. What you think you want, and what you want, change after the first ride.
