He's got a courtesy vehicle and various gas vouchers thanks to CAA Saskatchewan, so our new 2019 Saskatchewanderer is ready to hit the road.

Zane Buchanan from White City grew up in our province and once he ventured on to post-secondary his journey took him to large centres on the coasts of Canada. Now with education in broadcasting and life experiences in Saskwanderer 3 gov photoconcrete jungles he's ready to stay home for a while and share with the world why his heart will always belong to Saskatchewan.

"My main goal is to broaden our audience base beyond the confines of Saskatchewan, I think there's a lot of content here that could be found interesting to many different provinces and even countries. I have the advantage of having lived in those various demographics in Vancouver and Toronto. I'm excited to cater it to a broad group of people."

Despite growing up in our province, Buchanan humbly said he hasn't spent much time outside of our two largest cities. Which is exactly why he wants this position to take him all over the prairies and says his lack of prior exploration might give him the advantage to see things for the first time. 

"I really want to immerse myself fully in some of these indigenous communities that exist here that you wouldn't be able to find elsewhere. Experience those cultures first hand, do a tipi sleepover... there's such a rich diversity more northward."

Back when Buchanan initially went to apply for the open spot as the 2018 season wrapped up, he said he was visiting home and found himself not wanting to leave. His aunt and uncle had been hinting to him to apply for some time and when he finally took the leap, he found out that he might not be "working" at all for the next year. 

"When I started working on the application and fell more and more in love with it, and I found myself more motivated to work on the application... than I was on doing the work of the job I was doing prior. I just said 'this feels right, this doesn't feel like work'. I thought about in the sense that if Ontario or B.C. were to offer me a position like this, I don't think I could do it with the same enthusiasm." 

The Saskatchewanderer and his four-legged partner in crime have a busy few weeks ahead as they get settled into the new role and start to map out the next few months. For right now he says he's taking suggestions on where to go and looks forward to falling in love with Saskatchewan once again.
