Any Members In Or Around Winnipeg
 
What's up all?

I've seen a lot of Canada, but have not been to Winnipeg.

Looking to travel on up sorry to say without my truck. It's not the distance it's customs.

Was thinking of coming up around March 19, 2014.

Maybe catch a Jets game while there.

Post up if interested.:smileup:

I live just outside the city lights. I sincerely wish you luck getting a jets ticket. Great place to watch hockey if you can afford to go, and can find a ticket. I can't say for sure if I'll be around though as I travel a lot for work

Thanks for responding.

And yes I know it's not easy to get ticket to see any hockey team in Canada. :doh::wavey:

well depending on when your here i live right at the border of manitoba and north dakota. not sure where your entering into canada but i only live and hour from winnipeg. it's to bad your not bringing your truck. if your driving and only visiting it's no different in a car or a pickup when crossing. but it's usually easier if your flying.

As in my o.p. I'm thinking around March 19, 2014.

I would do the drive, but with a cover on the bed and all the crap I carry back behind my seats the customs folks would have a field day with me. And I don't mean that in a good way either. :SHOCKED::wow::str:

:LOL: I know better than that. I would be more worried about one of the boarder staff (either U.S. Or Canada) being gay and taking a liking to me. :SHOCKED:

The idea of bringing my truck has crossed my mind. I've always wanted to visit the Iowa 80 truck stop. Seen it on T.V. and know a guy who stop there on his way to visit his family in Nebraska. He drives a Charger Black Top Edition.

:LOL: Now that's funny! :LOL:

And I'll bet if you had to do it all over again you would do the exact same thing.:wavey:

By the way are you and independent or do you work for a company? I ask because I don't see to many independents anymore. :4-dontknow:

Also, do you ever go past Polar Industries or VP Express. I'm fan of the show Ice Road Truckers.

mb power wagon 10-05-2013 03:12 AM

lol i know where polar industries yard is. if you knew the truth about the show you wouldn't be fan any longer. i used to run the manitoba ice roads and i almost knocked out one of the idiots on that show for trying to delay me for a half a day because they wanted to get the perfect scene for the show. i used to be an independant but now i drive for a company. there isn't much money in being an owner operator anymore.
