You Know your in Alberta When…

Posted: 3 May 2011 in Uncategorized

1. I was doing my regular 4 hr ride this week which included a stop through a rural Albertan town just outside Edmonton (60 km’s away)when I came across a scruffy looking man with one front tooth probably in his late 30’s and his son (who’s probably 6 years old) chillin outside the Mac’s Store.

Child comments, “wow, he’s got 2 bottle holders, cool!”

I chime in, “That’s what you need when you ride longer distances… I just came from Edmonton.”

Dad jumps in with a Fubar style slur, “Holy FUCK!”

2. We were riding back into town on the weekend and took a short cut on a gravel road to get to the new highway and came across 2 grown men dressed up in coveralls parked on the side of the road with their F150 and the tailgate down and a full on tool box out the back. They had been working on a V8 engine that was dumped on the side of the road and had the engine totally completely apart and all the parts spread out neatly across the grass/dirt. Must have been searching for some spare parts for their other trucks at home…

3. The friendly neighbourhood suburb just outside Edmonton is named Rendeck Ranch.
