Its 12:04 PM Sunday Afternoon.  Guns R Roses on the MP3 Player, I look to my left and Chaps is driving with Drew passed out in the back.  We just jumped off a cliff on the way out of Jasper.  WILD.

Friday night – I got off work early at Suncor in Fort McMurray.  An hour earlier my confirmation went through for me to travel on the Suncor jet to Calgary.  I called Chaps to confirm he’s picking me up and I’m off to the races.  A quick flight on the jet and I land in Calgary.  Chaps and Drew pick me up, we get some Zza, a couple casuals and were off to 17 ave (downtown Calgary) – We bar hoped for most of the evening.  Me and Chaps were exhausted from the work week and called it early.  Drew said “peace” and we didn’t see him till the morning.   

Saturday – Me and Chaps awake early, go for breakfast, call Drew, tell him to get home and we packed for Jasper.  Jasper is a 5 hour drive from Calgary – all through the mountains – it was wild.  We drove through Banff and stopped at all the tourist attractions.  The mountains are unreal but unfortunately my pictures – as nice as they are – can and will never do them justice.  You have to experience it yourself.

After picking up hitchhikers and taking pics all day, we arrived in Jasper at 5PM.  As it turns out, Chaps whole crew from the 204 (Winnipeg) were there.  The only thing on their mind was Skateboarding – and skateboard they did.  They skated so pro. 


After the skate we ate and headed out.  We attended a fundraiser for a guy in a wheel chair who needed some wild surgery in the states.  Hopefully he got all the funds he needed.  Next door to the fundraiser was the place where Wayne Gretzkey hangs out all the time.  Of course Chaps and I had to have a drink there.  Drew took pictures all night.


Sunday – Up early again, we hit up breakfast and this really fancy place.  We were a little underdressed but we had style so it evened the playing field. 

We drove out of the city and headed for a morning cliff jump.  I threw down a gainer and Drew dropped a crazy dive. 

Will be back in Calgary this afternoon; will be taking it easy for sure as I head back on the jet to Fort McMurray Monday morning.  AWESOME WEEKEND. 

Thanks Drew and Chaps.
