Hey Diaric, you should have a link on your page that shows the ACR growing members numbers so we can have a look every once and a while! How's the lead moderator job treating you?

Hey guys, my name is Clay. In the Calgary area.
Have a 2001 (01/01) GM with a long to do list still. Truck has 470,000 km on it and runs like a champ.... Stronger then ever in fact. My goal is to be at half a million and still running 12s!

I keep busy with the truck of course, but also do stereo competitions, and anything outdoors. I used to ride streetbikes to satisfy my need for acceleration and excitement but after a very bad accident it put me out of the game about 5 years ago. So thats when i decided a big diesel would be a good substitute! :)

ya, i usually go around Rocky. I couldn't be bothered this year. I spent most my work time around Grande Prairie and didn't feel like going out this year, just too much to do and too many people out there these days

Hi everyone, I'm Matt.

I'm a Power Engineer living in Fort Sask, graduated from SAIT in '06 after growing up in Manitoba and then moving out to AB and spending a few years on the service rigs.

I flipped my first 2 Duramaxes back in late '07 before I found my current ride down in Idaho in early '08. I love the truck and look forward to driving it for many years to come.

Anyone here have any artistic skills? I'd like to rock an "ACR Member # xx " on my window. Speaking of which, Diaric, what member number am I?

Hey everyone I'm Ray i live in Medicine Hat and pretty new to the DeiselGame. Joinded the site to learn more and found this club. Joined in hopes of finding people to go wheeling with or at least hang out with. not a lot of guys in the hat that are willing to get together, and sure as hell aren't any clubs to join unless your wheeling a jeep.
anyways looks like there are some pretty informed folks here and i like what i see so far!

Hi Floks, My name is Pete Ward, I live in Bonaccord, just a bit north of Edmonton.I found this place after being schooled on PMD's for the 6.5. Drive a 97 6.5 that is about to turn 500,000 this week or next. Pulls strong and runs great.
I like to Hunt with traditional Bows, and Old school Muzzle loaders. Flint locks are cool, and they Roll Coal every time you squeeze one off. LOL
I don't know much about Diesels, but I am learning . I am pretty handy with traditional archery, and operate a web site about it, Free information, absolutely no sales , or links to date sites, porn etc. www.peteward.com is where I am. I am always happy to help out a fellow archer with traditional questions.
I have worked across Canada , both in the south and the Arctic on construction projects and worked 8 months in Kenya Aftrica. Currently I am a 488 Pipefitter.

Pete

:welcome:

Welcome to the site Pete. I was on your website and it looks pretty cool. To be a bow hunter takes a lot of skill not to mention patience! You have a pretty good survivalist motto! Make it instead of buy it, gotta respect that!

I'm taking my 7 year old son out fishing this summer because that's all he can think of lately. We tried fishing out of a local pond last year and caught alot of algae and weeds but that didn't deter him. Any good holes up there for a boy to hook his first fish? We'd bring our camper up and make it a weekend if there is a camp grounds close. Send me a PM if you like on any good spots. I know how important it can be to keep the favourite holes quiet, it doesn't even need to be a secret hole is there any private fishing holes or public holes that cater to kids who want to get into fishing?

Once again Welcome.

You live by the top fishing in the province.
Much better where you are than up here. The Bow River is world class trout.
Thanks for the nice words. Archery is a great family sport, and it is not expensive if you go traditional. Calgary has some great places to shoot too.

It only takes a couple hours a week to learn.
Much less time than doing anything to a GM.
Just changed light bulbs on the Headlamps and had to wash out the inside.They were full of dust.
Thought they were dry, put it all together again and did a night drive. All foged up , so tomorow I take it all apart again. Love those stupid plastic lenses too. How did we live so long with glass that didn't haze over? The wonderfull manual said remove grill. :eek: did that, ready to kill the designer, Then I find a You Tube that shows the easy way, just remove 2 bolts.:mad:
