Aug 18, 2013 - Beaumont to Drumheller to Eatonia SK

I guess before I start talking about the day I should mention that as a child I had gone to our destination, Drumheller Alberta, and that it was the place that stirred my initial interest in paleontology. So going back there for me was a huge thing. I had high expectations of the museum and the surrounding badlands. I remembered everything about that place being exciting with something to explore and discover. After a nice couple of days relaxing with some old friends in Beaumont we departed at around 9:00 local time. We headed south with...

Alaska Bound 2013

Jun 28, 2013 - Yongstown (AB) to Kindersley (SK)

Today John and I left at 6:30 am and continued along Highway 9 past Chinook, Cereal and Oyen, where we stopped at an A&W for a second breakfast. We then proceeded past Sibbald and into Saskatchewan, at about 90 km into our ride. We took the opportunity to take a "Welcome to Alberta" picture from the opposite side of the road, as we found no such sign when entering from British Columbia. From there we rode past Alsask, Marengo and into Kindersley, arriving at our campground at about 2:00 pm. The Prairie views have now become routine (big...

Day Seventeen-July 7 Kindersley 154k I got up at my usual time of 6am. The kitchen crew, who hit it lucky last night, was already at work on breakfast in the rec centre. We had the usual porridge but they also cooked up some potatoes that were topped with cheese. I also had an orange and a Via coffee. By 7:30 I was on the road for Saskatchewan. Our destination for the day would be Kindersley. We would stay on highway 9 all the way there although in Saskatchewan the route number would change. And the highway got better. Once again we had to...

July 9 Day 17 – Youngstown to Kindersley SK K’s 156.79 Time 4h 7m Average speed: 38.08/H T to D 1453 k Top speed today 70.39k/h WOW!!! What a ride from Youngstown. Winds were at our back at 40k/h with gusts a lot higher. It would have been impossible to ride into very long so we were lucky to have it at our back. There was one nice little hill into a valley were we topped out our speed at over 70 k. We left camp at 7:50 and arrived in Kindersly at just after 1pm with two stops along the way. I attempted to take a picture of our arrival...

Jul 7, 2008 - 17 Kindersley SK

What a difference a day makes. Instead of brutal headwinds we had quartering tailwinds for most of the day. This was a good thing since it was our turn on galley duty. This means that the 6 of us on the team need to get to camp in time to set up the portable kitchen, heat water for cleaning, and cook dinner for 40 or so. The menu is more or less pre set and the recipes for most meals are in the Tour du Canada cookbook on the truck. Tonight is an exception as there is no recipe for "Stir Fry with Chicken/Tofu/Rice". Earlier in the week I had...

Jul 12, 2005 - Youngstown to Kindersley - 149 km

Dear Diarrhea: In other words, another non-ride day for TS...and ten other hapless cyclists. And one glum support-truck driver. Around 2am this morning, nature called. No, wait - it yelled. Oh well, I thought. The aftermath of a massive and delicious gesture by the hospitable people of Youngstown. Back to the sleeping bag. At 3am, nature screamed. The 75m walk from the tent to the community centre's washroom was so precarious and excruciating, I was actually hunched over on the grass holding on for dear mercy. I had to chuckle to myself...
