Day three of the trip had us waking up in Bobcaygeon at the Poole residence with a little bit of a heavy head. But after a quick breaky and coffee we were back on the road for a full day of cable riding at the Ranch Wake Park in Newmarket, Ont. Waiting for us there was Jono Boysen, Drew Austin, and Joe Ferguson.
The weather couldn’t have been any better; it was hot and it was sunny. So after a beautiful scenic drive through southern Ontario’s countryside, we had arrived at our destination for a two-day camping stay.
It was really nice to be stationary for a change after three consecutive days of moving around. The Ranch Wake Park is so peaceful that it gives you the illusion that you are in the middle of nowhere when in reality you are just forty minutes from downtown Toronto and just minutes away from Newmarket.
As soon as we got there it was time to get down to business and log some footage. First up was the Ranch’s main dude, Drew Austin, who last month was named the 2011 Ontario Cable Rider of the Year and just last week won the first stop of the Ontario Roots straight-line cable contest series. Let me just say that he proved his worth with just one session; most notably with a nollie backside 270 transfer from the flat box to the down rail.
The rest of the day was a nice mix of riding, lounging, and relaxation.
Upon nightfall, Jono lit up a nice bonfire wherein we had the chance to really take it all in under clear skies and a beautiful starry night along with a few fireflies fluttering about. It was the most fitting end to our four-day excursion through southern Ontario.
Tomorrow will be an early wake up in order to tie up a few loose ends and a last chance to get some more footage before heading back home.
