We woke up early, got ready and jumped into the Van. Whereis Dan Pageau? We drove to the store and then back to the Hotel and then down the road and there was Dan skating up the hill. He jumped into the Van and we were on our way 220km to Saskatoon. We arrived in Saskatoon went to the park to meet up with Team B (the other car with Mike, Taylor and Kenny). Dan went missing again so we went to McDonald’s for some food and came back to get Dan and headed to Saskatoon’s best street spot called River Landing which is on the water front.
The spot has everything you need to skate, a big 3 block, manny pad’s, a big ledge, little ledges and a two block with a rail to gap over. Good vibes with the locals as we skated til a police officer kicked us out. But as we were getting kicked out the weather took a turn and the session was over. We went back to Kenny’s chilled and crashed out.

That afternoon we went back to River Landing for another session. We skated till 4 pm and then went to Victoria Skate Park for our appearance at the park.
We ended up driving up the grass and attempted to drive over this metal pole and punctured the oil pan. There was oil all over the place. I was freaking out and was thinking we weren’t going to make our next destination. I quickly called BCAA and got a tow truck to take me to the nearest garage. Thankfully the tow truck came quickly. We got the Van to the garage just before they were going close. This took 3 hours and then I was back at the park with the Van on the road. We packed up and were on the road again, North Battleford here we come!
