Day 10 - Medicine Hat.

Members of Swift Current Fire, Local 1318 with 6 of the guys from Shore2Shore!

Day 10 is in the bank! It was an unbelievable day. We started out with a Regina Fire escort out of town. We passed by some Vancouver friends that parked on the highway at 7am to see us go by. Thanks guys! Regina Fire sent a ladder and an engine to pick us up. Thanks to those guys for all of their support!

Once we hit the 10km to go for Swift Current, their crew had a rig waiting for us. They brought us to the city limit, where we met with their engine. The engine then brought us right into town with lights and sirens.....can't even explain the rush of going through town behind those vehicles. One of our crews kept riding, while the other stopped for a visit with the Swift Current guys. They had the media set up and made a donation to the charity. These guys are a Local very similar to ours and they went above and beyond any expectations we had. Great crew, great department, and an experience I will never forget!

We got into Medicine Hat by dinner time. The guys were pretty exhausted. We ate dinner, did some laundry, and got ready for day 11 to Canmore!

We received huge donations today! Thanks to everyone that has supported us! We will give you an update tomorrow about the ride into the mountains and snow!!
