Janet Hawkwood

Dick Mahr's junkyard if the Vortex of the Universe!
The "Whoopee Ride", Dicks guided tour aboard his 1924 Ford is an unusual journey into Dick's life and his amazing jungle of junk. Located in southern Alberta, Dick's personal landscape is expressed through stories told and treasures revealed. When asked how he liked his video, he simply replied "How come it's so short?" Now that Dick is retired he devotes all his time to serving his public.
