Smile Go West young man

Heading out to Edmonton to work at the end of the month. Our house is for sale and when sold we will pack up and move. I'll be driving out and Esther will stay till the house is sold. I'll be trailering my GTL out so there will be another one in Edmonton soon.

CCR is only 1900km from Edmonton, 3400km from Toronto.

Re: Go West young man

Hey Garry,

I would still like to take you on the Georgian Bay/Blue Mountain run so hopefully we can make that happen before you leave. You've got the directions anyways and I think you would enjoy it.

I'm out in BC all next week. I'll give you a shout when I'm back in town.

Todd.

Re: Go West young man

What a bummer! I can look you up when I visit my dad. He's in Wabamund, in the sticks near Edmunchuck. The old man had a beemer when I was in diapers. Lemme see if I can find a pic...

Darn. Put in the wrong pic. Never mind.

Re: Go West young man

Congrats Garry!
Edmonton is a great place to work so you can make more money to buy more BMW stuff. It certainly works for me. Also the proximity to the mountains (3 hours and change) puts some awesome riding right out your back door.

Looking forward to finally meeting you!

Re: Go West young man

Sorry I missed your call the other day, Garry. But I did get home from BB to play a dance this weekend, with the LT left up north.

I was busy with a number of things Sunday and Monday, and only today realized you were heading west this morning. Hope you have a smooth drive out there.

I'll miss you not going with us to the MOA in Penns. in July, and am sad to see you leave Caledon. I always enjoy your sense of humour and positive attitude.

Hope we get to ride together again, Friend.

Then you've got an easy ride to Rosie's Bar.

Hope make it Wednesday 13th, sorry I can't be there as one of my daughters is getting married in Cancun that week.
