      I'm an Albertan. Calgary to boot. Sorry, the extent of my "wheeling" isn't very extensive. My Ex is geared to the street for the most part. If you see a green Eddie Bauer around town (I'm in the SE), Street Scenes grille (haven't seen another in Calgary), tinted tails etc, you've found me.

      Cheers!

      Hey guys, I was starting to think that I was alone here in Calgary. I'm don't have much experience either with much off roading (aside from some fun in some muddy fields by my place).

      A lot of people wheel out at Waiporous Creek (about 1/2 hour west of Calgary out near Cochrane) or out near Bragg Creek (McLean Creek campground is your starting point).

      Just stay in designated areas. I do a lot of mountainbiking and it's amazing how many wheelers seem to think they're allowed to tear up the trails wherever they see fit (mostly dirtbikes and quads). They have a lot of trails out in Bragg Creek but people still ignore the rules.

      mclean is not bad for stockers there is a huge ammount of trails that are more or less gravel hiways with the odd mud hole to splash thru.... theres also a chitload of nasty stuff to keep even the big guy's pullin cable all day....

      wipeyerass is pretty fun as well.... good mix of mild to wild trails but more suited to people who like to spend the weekend.

      Well since I'm still mostly stock except for 3.73 gears and 30" BFG A/T's coming soon, some rancho shocks, and a traction loc rear.....I think I'll stick to some of the lighter trails when/if I can make it out one of these days.

      Hi, I am also from Calgary. I do not take my Ex off-road very often (got more than enough of that when I played with the CF), most just for hauling stuff or the dogs around.

      The Ex is a red 91 XLT that I picked up a year ago after if had been through some neglect. The body work - rust has been repaired and there is now a large red front bumper, bush rail and winch on the truck. The Ex sits pretty low and will need to be raised as I am tired with pressure washing the grass and sod from the cross-member and transfer case shield on those occassions when I do take the Ex off-road.

      Look forward to seeing you guys around town or Alberta.

      born and raised a Calgary boy ;) and I have spent many of long weekends out in waiparous wheelin'. I just bought my explorer this past july after my F150's rear diff blew up on the way back from the grand prix in Edmonton it was the old F150's final days as the truck needed way too much work to fix. not too long after getting the explorer on the road she got her first sniff of waiparous and what a sweet smell- she did OK with 31's and a stock lift, got stuck a few times-had to take off the skid plate cause it was pushed right into the driveshaft making this terrible screeching noise....good times........ahh good times. need more ground clearance!!!

      Hello all, I hail from Lethbridge and have been wheeling for a few years now with my Ranger but around Christmas I picked up a '92 2 door which will soon serve my wheeling needs. Heres a shameless plug for the club I belong to http://www3.telus.net/lck/
