Great idea, I may be there.
I got a little confused on the time, if anyone who wants to ride from there is there by 10ish should be good. I'll be there earlier anyway
I'm having to work tomorrow now but will still try to make it then head back. If not possible I'd still like to see if anyone would like to meet sometime for a drink to honor Dick. Let me know if anyone is interested.

Ride on Wherever you have gone.
May the gravel be fast and dust free to clear horizons my friend!
You will be missed by all.
Ride In Peace.
Busy at the Tims. Park in my spot out front.
Scooby and me here so far.
And Dual sport 955. And Cowtowner.
It was a good send off for Dick. I am sure he would have appreciated the turn out of bikes.
Really wish I could've made it. Hell of a guy. I'll remember him for a long time.

here are a couple of pics from the service yesterday, great to see so many riders turn out!
It was a nice celebration of Dick's life and showed me another side of the man, the father/grandfather/husband. He was truly blessed. I think a get together over beers some evening would be good. Or a group day ride taking in some of Dick's favourite roads in southern Alberta. Either of the next two weekends would work in my calendar for either or both activities.
Makes me happy to see such a great turn out. Awesome.
Well now THIS sucks. Damn
I hadn't realized the Waterton fire was quite so extensive. We were just down there in the spring with a school group overnight camp at Crandell. I hope everyone stays safe and the park recovers quickly.
Beautiful shots Lycan1. Really sorry to have missed the service but I've been out town unfortunately. I will think of him often when I ride.
Skipping to the last page of the thread and I notice we lost a rider. The pictures taken of him are so nice, and just by looking at them, I could tell he was a man of great character. My condolences go out to his family and those here who know him.
Walking in here and asking questions, feels like bad timing. However, I'm heading west tomorrow, camping NW of Hinton. Any known trails to ride around there? I heard Ruby Falls is beautiful, but would be a particularly rough ride on the bikes. Stay north of Hinton, or go south? There is no real plan after a day or two around there, so I'm open to any suggestions.
I'm also aware of the ORV bans and back country travel bans. It's too bad about the fire situation around Waterton, as it was on the short list of places to go.
Thanks for your kind words. I'm not familiar enough with the north areas, but wanted to add that it's getting really cold at about 2 am. My last camping session I didn't get much sleep. It's a great time to close off the season with the crisp clean air and fall colours.
You could do the 940 top to bottom. It's open. It's still a longtime fav of mine that has not lost its charm.
Looks like OHV Ban is NOT in effect north of Hwy 40/Longview. No official announcement but the bans are not reflected in Mclean Creek or Waiporous on this map like they are down south. Anyone have some clarity on this? I'd like to get out and swap the dust for some mud this weekend.
you are looking at the "parks" page not specific to the current fire status; Waiporous and Mclean are not parks. the OHV ban has been lifted North of Hwy 532 (chain lakes, not longview) :
"Due to recent precipitation and cooler temperatures in the northern portion of the Calgary Forest Area (CFA), the FIRE BAN AND OHV RESTRICTION have been lifted. However, an Advisory remains in effect. The Forest Area Closure also remains in effect for the southern portion of the area. Full details below."
Everything is here. Just click each area to get details.
Thanks for shedding some light Dwayne. I'll be getting out this weekend then. Could be up for an overnight trip too if anyone else is. PM me if interested.
we are back riding gravel in SE bc....but still no OHV allowed
