Birds Hill Provincial Park is not the greatest for camping but if you want to explore the sights of Winnipeg, great museum, lots of history, Lower Fort Garry, the park is just north of the city.

Riding Mountain National Park is further away but beautiful, earlier this month Clear Lake there froze solid without any snow on it a few weeks ago and you could skate for miles. Of course you won't be doing that in the summer

We would be glad to show you the sites, we are not far from Winnipeg, in fact we are right at the border at the end of I29, cross the border and you are in our town, you'd be welcome to boondock chez nous! Just PM me if interested.

p.s. last January we enjoyed a visit to Omaha, your zoo is wonderful! We are through Council Bluffs regularly as our daughter and granddaughter are at Fort Leavenworth.
Nice offer, Adrian, and thanks for the suggestions. We will be in touch when we get our plans moving along. We're so glad you got to visit our zoo! It is considered world-class, and no year goes by without some major renovation, always making it better and better.

Maybe I'll get up that way this year.

Hi Dave

It would be nice to see you if you come up this way, but Montana and Manitoba do not touch, MB is beside MN and ND, across the border from Montana is BC, AB and SK.

Happy New Year, Adrian

For kicks and giggles I was planning a trip on roads less traveled back east to visit my wife’s family in Ontario and my family in Ohio when I stumbled upon Uranium City on the northern shore of Lake Athabasca, fascinating history. Crap, now I want to buy and outfit a Jeep Rubicon for a trip on the winter road for a visit. Scott

Adrian,
Being an Alpha Male Coyote and not caring much for road maps ( Rita wraps my sandwiches in them, do you think she's trying to tell me something?) , I am really only a trailer pulling chauffeur and Rita is the tour director. I was hunting garter snakes the day they taught Canadian geography. So that's my excuse for not knowing where I am at or going most of the time. I'd like to get up your way this year and see you and Beth. I hope you have a wonderful 2016. Keep in touch, we will, I promise.
Dave

Wow, that would be a trip!

While the ice road would be interesting, it might make more sense to take a barge from Stony Rapids (the end of the all-weather highway) to Uranium City, if only because that would mean visiting (and driving the highways) in the summer instead of mid-winter. I have no idea of the cost, or even what company might operate the barge, but they could even take the whole tug and Escape rig.


Fortunately, there are lots of interesting places which are more accessible!
