Was out at Waiparous today. Really nice out, but got chilly when the sun went down. Will be out there again next Monday to officially cut a Christmas tree.

What is the road like to get out to the Transalta trail during the winter? Pretty dusty/loose gravel or wet/mucky? Thinking of making a quick day trip out today with the fam as long as its decent to get out and hike around a bit in a couple spots...

You probably found out already, but on the off chance you didn't, it's mostly gravel and dusty, with some patches of snow/slick in spots that don't get much sun during the day. Once I got to the river bed last week, it was mostly rock. Didn't run into any muck/mud at all. Let me know how it is, I'm thinking I'll be going out tomorrow.

We didn't wind up going out - but I think this Sunday we are going to do it!

Transalta trail was pretty fun yesterday - a bit dusty and busy - but what do you expect for a Dec 6 run when it's +11 outside :)

No - just went out with my wife and two daughters. I said hi to a few of them who were at the falls - and I think I know who you mean by Jeff with the toyota 4runner on 37's - is it a burgundy color? There was a pack of 4runners and I noticed there was one with 37's on beadlocks - was like "damn that looks cool!"

Here's a pic - his was buried behind but you can just see the top of his roof...

2021 JLUR (incoming), 2013 Fiat 500T
From Edmonton, AB, Canada. First time Wrangler owner, 2nd time Jeep owner (had a '11 Grand Cherokee V8 Overland).

Until last week, had a new '21 Bronco Badlands on reservation, but for many reasons, decided to cancel.

Just placed a factory order for a '21 JLUR from Innisfail, AB last Monday.

Final specs:
  • 2021 JLU Rubicon
  • 3.6L V6 with e-torque & 8-speed auto
  • White with white fenders
  • Factory 33 K02's OWL
  • Dark Saddle Leather
  • Steel Bumper Group
  • Remote Proximity Entry
  • LED Package
  • U-Connect 4C Group + Sound Group
  • Safety Group
  • Cold Climate Group
  • Sky One-Touch Power Top (This was a HUGE selling feature for us)
  • Integrated Off-Road Package
  • Cargo Management Group with Trail Rail
  • Tow Package
  • Remote Proximity Keyless Entry
  • 4:1 Rock-Trac HD Full-Time 4WD System
ETA is hopefully late March, but that is dependent on the Sky One-Touch Roof, which I'm told is not in stock at the factory right now.

Lastly, the JL was purchased as tow rig for a new custom off-road teardrop we are having made for delivery late '21. Preliminary rendering attached.

Anyone been out the Transalta trail recently? Looking to go in a weekend or two and wondering what the conditions have been like.
Thanks!
