Happy Canada Day
The final day in Alberta, and the wind is still BLOWING, we did 76 miles, 30 miles flying east with a direct tailwind, 15 south with an in one side and out the other crosswind, and 30 more going west with a direct headwind.
The destination for the day was Fort McLeod. We filled the main street with Model T’s and kind of took over the place.
The attraction in Fort McLeod is the old historical fort, historical home to the North West Mounted Police.
And today was Canada Day, the equivalent of our 4th of July. Not quite as noisy as ours but more parading and pomp and circumstance. We attended the official flag raising ceremony and then a precision riding demonstration called the Musical Ride.
Crowd loved it, we all got free Canadian flags. I think we are now unofficial Canadians. Then off to the local high school track for some more unofficial Barnyard Cruiser non-races. Crowd loved it, even though it was rigged like professional wrestling.
Final activity tonight was the final banquet, stuffed again on Alberta beef. And then we packed up, put the car in the trailer and tomorrow head south, we need to be home early next week, so this will be the last blog until we get home and then I will write an epilogue. Hope you enjoyed following our adventures, we sure had fun. Thanks for following along.
