Well, since the original Papa Leo Wingman got waylaid in Canada I am going to acquire another Wingman back where it all started, Vietnam.
Papa Leo Wingman #2 is waiting for me as we speak. The brother Wingman is named "Uncle Ho Wingman", (Uncle Ho for Ho Chi Minh for those of you who are thinking the Ho stands for something else).
I will take pictures and post them on this blog as soon as I can. Well, all for now, the adventure continues.

Wingman with Rick at the Calgary Stampede
Well...Wingman had a nice start to his Canadian Adventure. He enjoyed meeting Rick, seeing the sights of down town Calgary and having his first Indian Meal.
Wingman visiting with a larger stuff moose on the pedestrian mall where he enjoy looking at all of the fine ladies walking around in their short summer outfits.
Wingman gets a small taste of the Calgary Police (Mounties)... Good thing it wasn't from the inside.
Wingman visits his first Wine Bar (Greg, they might be for sale -- realestate in Calgary is a bargain... ask Rick)
Finally, before heading to the airport, Wingman enjoys a large Indian Meal -- hopefully his digestion was better than Jack's....
He then went back to the airport and boarded the bus to Banff. He was riding in a blue plastic bag, along with two new maps (Burma and North Vietnam) and Jack's camera charger. In order to be safe on the bus ride, the bag and Wingman were placed in the seat pocket.... where to this day they RIP..... A search party has been launched and status reports will be posted. Until then, enjoy Wingman's last waking moments. I hope his brother in arms is well and looking forward to Burma.
And this is what Wingman Missed:
