95 miles unless you got lost. (okay, a little lost). Anyway, off we went, this time Glenn and Vicki are with us, no more flat tires first thing in the morning.
Not to say that there weren’t a few little problems, David had a little carb problem, some dirt requiring a quick fix. Bill’s muffler decided to depart so he ran a straight pipe all day, says it really moves now.
Our destination for today was Pioneer Acres, an active organization dedicated to preserving the Alberta heritage.
They have a beyond belief heavy truck collection. This is one of my favorites. Big mama.
Or how about some Big Macs, shades of Bob Edwards and his tale of driving one of these home from out in the valley.
Or even a couple Pierce Arrows???????
Tractors of every size, type and year,,,,,,
I’ll drive this one, please.
The guys who run the place put on an antique tractor pull for us.

Parked on the lawn. Pat thought this was a little close.
And look at this, they say it can accumulate on any month of the year in Alberta.
And what do you think we had??? ALBERTA BEEF!!! Great dinner. By the way the table cloth is a cowhide. Nothing but the best for us cowpokes.
At the end of a long day, really threatening, look at those dark clouds, I thought about praying for the rain to hold off, being in front of a church and all, but then decided to put the side curtains on instead. We stayed snug but the speedster folk got a little damp.
ZZZZZZZZ……. End of day 8.
