What an incredible tribute today to the man, the myth, the legend.

Special thanks to our own Matt Perkins, Lowell Skoog, Colin Haley, and Don Serl for the heart felt and enlightening tributes to Fred and his impact on their own lives!  Hopefully Lowell can put a link to his slideshow here once he clears all the permissions.  It is well worth watching.

The take home messages that stuck with me today:

"Stay on route."

"Fred was NOT a bum".

"Old-timers are a renewable resource"

And the funniest line, I thought (I may have it slightly wrong), came when John Rupley relayed how the police reacted finding him and Fred bivying in a picnic shelter in Banff:  "They treated us nice because at least we weren't committing carnal acts like some people from the French portions of Canada".

Great to put so many faces to names I only knew from Fred's books!
