It was a fantastic day in the OK Valley on Sunday, and for Shane and myself this was one to remember, as we explored the snow-free area above Bear Ridge.

Unfortunately, on my return home, I received the sad news that we had lost another old friend to Cancer - Dan Chambers, elder brother of Dave died last week, but we only just heard. - Dan and his son Danny JR - stopped by the shop in January and we chatted about Trials - Dan Senior bought a TRS from us about a year ago.

Our condolences go out to the Chambers Family, who have now suffered another tragic loss.

CHAMBERS, Arthur “Dan”

CHAMBERS, Arthur Arthur Daniel Chambers of Vernon, BC passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, in Hospice House on March 18, 2018 after experiencing cancer a second time. Dan was 70 years old.
Dan was born in Vancouver on February 5, 1948, the first child to Art and Mona Chambers. At 6 years old Dan moved with his family to the Vernon area. At an early age Dan learned to drive a variety of trucks and machinery. Dan Chambers Trucking, Anser Industries and Gaby Ventures were three of his primary business ventures. He had a passion for cars, horses, motorbikes, boating, flying and the solitude of driving truck.
Dan is survived by his wife LanLan, his four children Lisa Torrie (David), Michael Chambers (Joanne), Marisa Chambers, and Danny Chambers and two granddaughters, Annika and Sydney Torrie. Dan is also survived by his siblings, Kathy Deane Zimmer, Joanne Stone, David Chambers, and Doris Squair.
The funeral service will be at the Pat Duke Memorial Arena in Lumby, BC on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 1:00 with refreshments to follow at the Whitevalley Community Centre. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Hospice House in honor of Dan


In sharp contrast to the pic at the top of the page, here is what our riding area at Summerland looks like ( Thanks to Dale for taking these shots yesterday) - Obviously the Fun ride planned for next weekend at this location, is now cancelled.

This is the “Bird Bath” - but the road into the gravel pit is also plugged with snow.
