Robyn Regehr Settling In On The Retirement Life

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

Getting back to his roots as a Saskatchewan farm boy, the 35-year-old recently spent a week assisting the farmer he grew up working for. Yes, that meant driving combines and other machinery the typical Calgarian has never heard of.

"I love going out there and being involved -- harvest is the best time of year," said the product of tiny Rosthern, Sask., where Regehr rents out nearby farmland he bought years ago.

"I was doing all sorts of stuff like picking up barley swaths and straight-cutting wheat in the combine. The machinery keeps getting bigger, more automated and complicated but I'm fairly comfortable."

Returning to Calgary in time for his two young sons to start school, Regehr and his wife have returned to the home in northwest Calgary they lived in at the tail end of his stint here. The house will serve as the base from which he helps operate an oilfield rental equipment company called Blueline he started seven years ago with two partners. He has long spent summers getting out to the rigs, learning as much as possible about the business. That won't change.

What has changed is a daily routine that now revolves around the boys, Shane and Wyatt, and wife Kristina.
