Kananaskis hwy 68 hwy 40 road trip...

Landscapes and maybe wildlife, Sunrise ? hard to say what the weather will be then. But lets give it a shot.

This will also tie into the snow challenge. I would have liked to do it earlier, but this is my next available weekend.


This will take several vehicles depending on who shows up. When you RSVP please say if you can drive or not.
If you ride as a passenger you will be expected to share travel expenses.

Dress appropriately. There are not many places to eat out there.. we could easily be out there for 8-10 hours.. So bring food and something to drink..

There is a Humpty's at the gas station, I may go early and grab some breakfast there. I will wait until closer to the date to make that decision.

The last time there was a meetup starting at this location there was some confusion, So at 6:55am I will be standing in front of the store. By 7:05 we will be driving down the highway..

I am going to limit this event to 8 participants. As there is a chance of seeing wildlife, I do not want a large group to be scaring them off.

• This will be weather dependent, if there is a blizzard or extreme cold, it will be cancelled.

This is going to sound harsh, but based on recent events, this is the way my meetups will be from now on. Goldcard members get special privileges, People who have a habit of no shows will be removed if there are goldcard members or organizers on the waiting list.

    Hi Ian
    Plan on heading out from High River by 5:30 which should give us plenty of time to arrive for the 7:00 a.m. start. Do you have a cell number that I could call in case we experience any delays? I wouldn't expect you to wait, we would catch up somewhere along the road but I would like to let you know.
    Looking forward to a great day shooting tomorrow!

    Yes, I will be heading out around 5:30 and should be there a few before 7am... I might have my dad with me and we can drive up to two other people if anyone needs a seat.

    please change your rsvp if you are not coming..I have one spot in my pickup, and it is taken by Shamas...Some of you answered my question about needing a ride, some didn't, therefore i cant really sort out who is riding with who...If you are planning on being a passenger, you need to contact another one of the group to make sure you have a seat somewhere....

      Cathy is coming with her husband, i don't believe she will have space as it is a small pickup..
      Ivo will want a ride from the gas station
      Dan says he has some room
      Olivia is coming from Airdrie, I'm coming from Cochrane, Not sure what Lei and marrianna have planned.

    I was going to the ice carvings on Saturday but now going on Sunday, so I'm now free. I will meet at the PetroCan. Can drive a few more or jump in with someone else, depending on vehicle situation in the a.m. if that's o.k.

    We may end up walking a little, last time we went out Ivo showed us a spot, i would like to try to get to. It is a short and easy walk, unless the wind is blowing like the last time we tried...as of now, tuesday am, the forecast is looking sunny and seasonably warm. But that does not really mean too much, so still make sure to dress appropriately.

    Our only 4x vehicle is a truck and there is a good chance Rob will join me. Would that make too large a caravan? If so let me know and I'll drop out and make room for someone else.

    Could we make it earlier? You might have a better chance for wildlife and a better chance of catching a nice sunrise. I'm o.k. either way. Maybe if one or two people came with me pretty early and then meet everyone else an hour or so later?

    January 12, 2014

    • Ian

      I dont want to make earlier, as some people already have a hours drive to get to the petro can, and others will need to rely on calgary transit to get to a meeting spot in calgary to share a ride.. Sunrise is not until 8:30 or so. that will give us a full hour to drive somewhere then 1/2 hour to setup..

    I can drive one other person if needed, but I would have to meet them at the petro Canada Gas station at the chochrane overpass.

    Sorry, something came up. I got busy that weekend.

    do you want to change the destination to lake louise for the ice sculptures ? I did not know about them until after I posted this meet. A couple of people have asked me.
    Let me know your thoughts..

    January 3, 2014

    • Shamas M.

      I guess I have to agree with you guys about the time and the crowds. I wasn't thinking about them when I asked Ian for his opinion on this. The sculptures will be there the weekend after the event that might be a better time to go.
