    First and foremost. I hope you guys and your wives have a safe trip. However you decide to make your way.

    Some very good posts on the western route guys. The mileage chart is a great help.
    The sidebar with the PDR *ick measuring contest was fun too.
    Keep rolling.... the event page is coming soon.

    Gents your efforts in organization of the kick off points for the Alberta gang, group, flock.... as long as it is not called “club” is going great.

    Spence your new thread for the Calgary start and stopover for the BC guys is a good plan to focus the planning.
    What a great bonus having the Stampede going on that weekend too for people to come and enjoy along the way. Full check marks there :thumbs:

    Eric and others have sent me messages with suggestions that will work good too. So feel free to start threads for your groups kick off point.
    I will insert links to your threads on the upcoming event page so we can all easily navigate through to them.

    So the common theme here is Moose Jaw has been determined to be our meeting point in Saskatchewanawanawanawan which I believe a hotel is being approached for a room rate, bikini car wash and drag strip. Riley and Eric are on this one. :Biggrin: I expect they will have details soon.

    I see no issues with smaller groups leaving Alberta together from different cities and all of us meeting in Moose Jaw for an evening of meeting old and new friends, whining about rock chips and general jokualarity. I’m seriously looking forward to this part of the trip.

    So all is well and despite the heart wrenching dismay of sadly looking over while walking by the love of your life all covered up in the garage... spring is coming. (For those of you who do not associate this with your Corvette... consider throwing her another blanket as it’s damn cold right now in most garages) :jawdrop:

    Carry on and thanks,

    Derek.

    Would have been a great idea Spence but wasn't the old gas station torn down on location and something else moved to a museum somewhere in saskatchewan?

    Our intent with this trip is to spend more time in the area visiting the sights and the grand beaches Winnipeg has to offer.

    ... yup ... a dream that I was blessed to start a new day from ... it was waking up with a smile and a chuckle for me on that morning.

    ... thought ... with an animated Corner Gas soon on the tube (and past real pics) ... there's always Photoshop ;)
    ... sorry I derail and here's my backdrops ... gonna keep this in mind for our caravan photo ops :Biggrin:

    I would just like a confimation of the date we will be returning to our homes in Alberta. Going to book my holidays at work as of tommorow, and just want to be sure of time alloted. I see we are to stay the night in Calgary, Wednesday July 11. Are we returning home July 15 or will it be a day later? Thx

    I think this might be what Derek has in mind to pinning-down when he is next back into the AB time zone ...
    if it helps - yes you have the July 11th Calgary Option which is set in stone.
    I have July 17th or 18th for my return via a USA route so that I can be flexible for anything that might pop up and assuming a July 15th departure.
    There should be most certainly more direct returns in mind by others.

    Ziggy the events are set up in Winnipeg for the Friday night and the 14th Saturday. So the 15th Sunday is a breakfast/travel home day or whatever the guys want to do.

    Hope that helps.

    Hey guys just reading the forum .Couple requests already done.. since my earlier posts i have joined the man corvette club.. grand beach the 11th wonder of the world is just over 1 hour from hotel u r at(NOT doing the speed limit) hotel is very nice and attached to largest casino in town. Someone above was asking for beer. Done! one of my buddies runs one of the brewery's here in the peg and i tactfully weaseled a keg out of him that will be at hotel. As far as 30 corvettes it will be more like 60. the vette show i did go to for the man corvette all corvette show, there was 36 cars reading there monthly blog. apparently there was at least 1/2 dozen that could not make it. it has been cold here warmed up today, got the bug reading all this Dewitts had a sale on. bought a new rad, then of coarse u need a matching carburetor right, so ordered one of those as well.. just because the canadian dollar is the best it has been for a while. that cured my winter blues.
