The Journey

Our journey began in Bradford, Ontario for our Across The Prairies Tour. First stop: Sault Ste. Marie. Our goal was to be there around dinner time but as it happened we arrived at 3:30am the next day....getting packed took a smidge longer then anticipated.

Monster Muffin's Zombie Dept. truck loaded and ready to go!

Canada is SO beautiful.

The Navigator.
Just outside of Thunder Bay we blew a whole right through the turbo boot....I'm pretty sure that's what it is, Antoine will probably correct me later. But anyways here's a pic of him under the truck on the side of the highway pulling it out for some good old fashion' duct tape repairs!

Fixen' er up.

Duct Tape: will get you over 500km when you need to!

We stopped in EVERY town looking for a replacement part and even came close a couple of times but ended up having to limp it on into Winnipeg....not bad though, over 500km on duct tape! The next morning we rolled into Cummins and the guys there were absolutely fantastic. They phoned up all their contacts and eventually found a guy (on a Saturday) who not only had one but was willing to drive 45min into town to deliver it. I'm telling you, all these guys were the best!

Our Hero's at Cummins, Winnipeg.

We lost a bit of time so we had to rip on through straight to Alberta. Everyone told me how flat the prairies are but it's a totally different feeling when your there to experience it. You can see as far as the horizon in every's crazy but beautiful.

Sooooo flat it goes on forever..........
So now we're here on Alberta. We're meeting up with a few stores and going to vend at a roller derby bout in Red Deer on Saturday. Will post more pictures and stories soon....hopefully no more that include a brake down!
