      Hey everyone,

      I’m planning on continuing my annual ride to drumheller (the last chance saloon in Wayne) this summer.
      I will be starting in Sangudo this year, instead of the usual Edmonton, and probably ride down hwy 22 to rocky mountain house then cut over to stettler then to drumheller.
      Early plan is to do it on July 16th or 17th. Slightly flexible on the day of the trip
      Would anyone be interested in joining?

        Hope I’m available…depends on the project I’m on at the time. Would be good to catch up again!

          Yeah, would be nice. I also hope I’ll be available. That’s supposed to be a free weekend for me but things don’t always happen as they’re supposed to

            I hear ya…this shift is supposed to be 14 days, but it’s looking like minimum of 21 and possibly 28

              So far it’s looking good for me to be able to do this ride on July 16th or 17th.
              I could probably even do it on an earlier weekend as well, if someone is interested

                    So I have a plan now. On July 2nd:
                    I’ll leave my place in Sangudo around 6am, take sec 759 then hwy 20 to Sylvan Lake, then take hwy 2 to get to hwy 42 in order to cut across to hwy 21 down to Drumheller. Approx a 4 hr ride to stop in at the Last Chance Saloon in Wayne just outside of Drumheller.
                    Leaving at 6 would get me to Sylvan Lake around 830am, I’ll stop there for a little breather if anyone wants to meet me there. I predict that we would arrive in Wayne around 11-1130am.

                      Sounds like a plan to me…I’m in!
                      You still have the same cell # from last ride?

                        I changed my phone number a little over a year ago, so I assume it would be different now.
                        it’s now 6394712692

                          I’ll text you.
                          I still have the same number, but you may not have kept it.

                          Wifey wants to come along, so I’ll probably meet you at the Last Chance unless you want to meet in Red Deer…

                              It’s 175kms to Last Chance from Red Deer…you want to meet at Gasoline Alley Timmies at 9am for a coffee before hitting the road?

                                That sounds good to me.
                                Sounds like one of my buddies will be joining us too

                                  I’m sorry, I’m going to have to postpone this ride.
                                  Maybe another day that we both have off
