This is because Jimmeh inspired me to clean the truck up and take some pics of her, so here goes

If you cannot find me here, or at work.....  most likely, you will find me on the trails!     


*A word to rice burners*
Some battle with flare, Some beg you to stare,
Some roar like a Bear, Or think that it's rare,
But I say, 'Who cares?' My Jeep's over there,
It may not have flare, but it will drive right over theirs!

Its actually at a local Interpretative site for the local open pit coal mine, no that excavator is about 90 years old, it was retired in the late 70's, they have some HUGE draglines that they use now, so large that my truck could fit INSIDE the bucket

this bucket is in town as a small stop for passers by, its smaller than the ones at the mine currently


this is one of the two draglines at the mine currently, and if you look right beside the dragline you can see a small pickup.... that gives you some scale

Sweet pictures, man and awesome truck! I'm extremely jealous since I've been wanting that same truck for a while now, lol. I'll have to tough it out with my halfy Vortec though Wink

And glad I inspired you guys. I'm HOPING the weather will cooperate this weekend so I can wash my truck, but I'm not counting on it. I'll be taking a trip over to Washington state here next Friday so it would be nice to get it cleaned before putting on the 1000 + miles.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys Very Happy

Glenn that park is only about 15minutes drive from my house, about 10miles from Forestburg AB, and if you keep going another 5 or so miles you get to see the huge open pit coal mines and the power generating plant in the bottom of the Battle river valley, You never realize how fortunate you are to have such cool places to go visit when they are right under your nose lol!

Thank you again guys, I really do appreciate it, Jimmeh I love this truck, I hope I get to drive it for a long time to come cheers
