Question Stromette needs Calgary area assistance....

Stromette here looking for a bit of help in the Calgary area. If all goes as planned I'll be there in July on my Strom to pick up my Dad at the Calgary airport and take 7-10 days to run the Canadian Rockies w/a shot down to Glacier. My issue is that since I'll be heading on up to Alaska afterwards and will have all my gear with me, I need to drop a chunk of it to make room for Dad and his gear. Anyone have extra space for a bag or two, or recommendations as to where I might stow such for a week? Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Calgary Stampede

Stromette,

July in Calgary means one thing above all: the Stampede!

http://www.stampede.coolattractions.com/events.html

This year, it's July 6-15, and I hope you can experience a whole lot of it.

The wonderful city of Calgary opens its arms to all comers, and presents a myriad of experiences that visitors never forget. You are very fortunate if your trip to Calgary Alberta coincides with the Stampede.

I wish I could be there with you, but as it happens I will be as far away from you as I can be, and still be in Canada.

Apart from this encouragement, I can be of no help to you, but Albertans I have known are gracious folk, and someone will offer you the help you seek.

Enjoy!

Keith

Infact, depending on when you are there, I may very well be as well. I go out that way several times a summer on my Wee. Some great local rides if you have the time.

Cheers again,

Stomette, I talked to my pal and he would be happy to hold your gear for you. I will send you a private msg with his email. You can then contact him with the details.

cheers!

I'm now living in Calgary and depending upon the dates you are here I could help out, or possibly hook up for a ride

Never got a response, but I think sghe has made arrangements with someone anyway.

Yes I'm in Cowtown and would love to hook up when you get this way. I work shiftwork so if I know in advance when you are arriving I can let you know if I can meet you. Just checked my schedule and I'm working the entire May 24 weekend
