In the travel section of our Sunday paper is a whole spread on the Stampede to Calgary. It mentions something called "the half mile of He**". Maybe we can get Kuki to sponsor a Cruisemates chuckwagon !
Stories on Banff and Heritage Park Historical Village. Good reading.

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please don't let Kevin Bacon die.
The Calgary Stampede was a huge part of my life for the 30 years I was in the bar business. That's because it was our busiest week of the year
There's a parade downtown that kicks of the 10 day celebration, and it ended at the door to my bar, which made for a wild day. Here's a pic of our last Stampede before we sold out.... taken 10 minutes after the doors opened.
The City does embrace the "Stampede Spirit" and spirits . It's certainly a great time of year to visit, and including a trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains is a must.
