Truman High

Today I walked up to the yarn store to buy some crochet hooks. On the way, I passed the school that Sam and Dean attended in 1997....

I had actually been out this way before to use the community centre, but at the time I didn't realize that Templeton was the school that had stood in for Truman High in After School Special (4x13). Here it is in all its ordinary glory:



The front of the school itself isn't actually filmed that much in episode. What I found most recognizable was actually the street leading up to the school - remove the parked cars and picture the Impala pulling up among fallen leaves *rock music plays* and there's your iconic flashback opener in the episode:



I could have wondered over to the baseball diamond (where I'm pretty sure Dean threatened to "tear that guy's lungs out!") and taken another picture, but it IS actually a school day and I didn't want to look too much like a creepy stalker or something...plus, you know...crochet hooks were waiting to be bought.

Hope you enjoyed your brief look at a Supernatural location...

I should point out that just a few blocks further than the yarn store are Rufus' and Chuck's houses. It's 2.7 kms from my place to the yarn store though, and I didn't really feel like walking further - plus, those are private residences, so taking pictures of them would be a bit creepy.

So envious of you living in Vancouver. You have no idea! :D
Endless SPN locations all around you.

I didn't know Rufus' and Chuck's houses were near that school. Cool! Good to know for my Locations List, which I'll be updated this summer for VanCon in August.

Well, Rufus' and Chuck's houses are about 2 kms north of Templeton...so, close by car, but a bit of a walk.

I'm heading up to Squamish tomorrow too...so, I'll be seeing all the Squamish SPN locations for the second time unintentionally. Sort of funny, given that I haven't really taken the time to go to the more famous Vancouver ones yet. I think you've actually seen more SPN locations than I have!

Ah, thanks for the intel. ;) I'll have to look them up, though if I find the exact addresses those won't go in the Locations List.

Ooooh! Squamish again. I didn't make it up there last year. Don't know about this year. It's so out and away from everything. We'll see. Hee! Probably have. Fit in quite a few in 1 and half days. ;)
