6th Electric Week: Yorkton SK to Thunder Bay ON

The hardest part this week was to say ‘so long’ to our dear friends in Yorkton SK. We had spent some amazing days with our ‘family of choice’, and knowing we won’t see them again until next year breaks my heart. But that’s part of travelling, the more important to enjoy the moment. Thank you, Christina and Doreen, for a wonderful time (and for organizing a TV, radio and newspaper interview)!

The next stop after leaving Yorkton was very exciting for us: Onanole RV Park & Campground. Rolf had found it by accident on the Internet, and seeing the numerous solar panels they had installed, he made sure we could stay and charge our car there over night. It does make you feel good to know you’re using the sun’s sustainable energy for your own energy needs, I truly would never have thought that.

5th Electric Week: Moose Jaw to Yorkton SK

This past week was one of the best so far! And it wasn’t the spectacular Saskatchewan ‘Land of Living Skies’ countryside. Or the fact that one of the main German newspapers, Die Welt, published our story. Or the fact that Tesla Motors published our customer story and liked and shared us on Twitter and Facebook. No, it was the best week so far solely because of the amazing people we met!

Peavey Mart Saskatoon Event

Family of electric cars at the Peavey Mart in Saskatoon, SK. Sorry, not all EVs made it into the photo.

We had been in touch with Peavey Mart and Sun Country Highway, since Peavey Marts provide the Sun Country Highway EV chargers we rely on (among others) to cross this vast country. So it made sense to organize Meet-ups in Moose Jaw and Saskatoon together, especially since Saskatoon is the Headquarters of Sun Country. Also, I had heard that Saskatoon is a very beautiful city, so I absolutely wanted to go, even though Rolf was complaining about the ‘wrong’ direction, North instead of East. He’s like that sometimes, like a German shepherd ‘with its teeth’ in the task at hand. But, happy wife, happy life, so there was no discussion ;-). Man, are we both happy we did the little detour!
