Saskatchewan Roughriders, Dodge Adventurers, and F-100 Explorers

From our man in south Saskatchewan, Alex Emond:
" Whaddabout those Roughriders !?!! Grey Cup in the bag. I managed to spend a chunk of the past week in Ponteix and old trucks just keep turning up anytime I drive around. This old Ford with the load of fence posts was just off the road between Val Marie and Mankota. Mankota is where I saw the Dodges...the one truck has so many borrowed parts I'm not sure what I'm looking at. " Adventurer ", for sure. Funny, the Ford is an " Explorer " . Same idea .    
I like the name Mankota. Sounds Sioux. Cheers"--AE
