Sue Fraser was born and raised in the Grande Prairie area. She now lives in the small city of Wetaskiwin, Alberta, with her husband Rick. First and foremost she is the mother of three grown children: Amy (son Coy), Kaylee (husband Chris Reid) and Cody. Sue and Rick have been happily married for over 30 years. Sue is also very proud to be called “Nana” by her grandsons , 7 year old Coy and 1 year old Ryker.
For the past 23 years, Sue and Rick were self-employed, owning and operating their vacuum truck company in the Grande Prairie region. They’ve now sold that company.
Throughout the past 20 years, Sue has travelled alongside hubby Rick to live a life on the Chuckwagon Trail during the summer months of May, June, July and August. Rick is a member of the World Professional Chuckwagon Association (WPCA), and his passion for the sport runs deep. Rick is a third-generation chuckwagon driver, coming from the Tommy Dorchester family.
Six years ago, Sue thought it would be good to update their company’s manager/secretary Cindy on a regular basis about what was going on and where they were during the chuckwagon season as business continued back in Grande Prairie. Sue started with an occasional email that detailed daily adventures and results of the race days. Word soon spread about the email blog and more people asked to be included on the email list. Sue then picked up her camera and attempted her hand at being an amateur photographer. She took photos around the camp, on race days and of the day-to-day living. She then included some of the most interesting photos to tell her story in the email blog.
Sue’s email blog now goes out to more than 400 people on her personal email list. From there, it goes out to even more friends of these fine folks. With the great technology we have, the email blog is reaching people all around the world in places such as Switzerland, Germany, USA, far eastern Canada and more.
Sue hopes you will grab a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and enjoy her rendition of “The Travelin’ Trailer.”
