Thursday October 22, 2009-

Again thanks to all the people who have left comments here and on Facebook. You can't imagine how it lifts my spirits. Don't get me wrong here, we're living in a beautiful house with a bedroom and bathroom of our own, we have a sitting room with a huge plasma TV which is of course shared with Nancy but she doesn't watch much TV and the sitting room looks out on her deck and back yard. It's warm and I'm sure once we get our stuff here from the RV we'll feel like it's home, temporary though. We do miss our little house on wheels.

Some of you have suggested going to Victoria for the winter. Since there is now snow and ice in Northern Ontario and Alberta, we don't want to cross Canada at this time especially going through the mountains. It is about 3000 miles and I don't think there would be many campgrounds open along the way. I just heard that Wawa, where we spent a week this summer got snow overnight and we would have to go that route since I can't go into the US.

I did get out for my walk this morning. There is a path that runs into marshy area not far from here and I saw a pond with lots of geese. There's also another one at the end of the street that takes you to the Trans Canada Trail so I'll be checking that one out as well. The problem is when the snow comes the trails probably won't be plowed.

After breakfast we headed toward the RV but Gordon had to stop off to take a few photos. I didn't even take my camera. To me, it was a work day. So we brought a load of clothes and some food back and since it had started raining and was quite foggy, we decided to just do the one trip today. The RV is still hooked up to electricity thanks to the campground owner and we have the heat on the lowest setting so the interior still has some heat. I think we have a few more days of clearing out the RV. As we're doing it all I can think about is how we're going to get all that stuff back into the RV in the spring!

We've had quite a bit of rain today. It's been cold, foggy and nasty!


  1. I am glad you are settled and have a nice warm place to stay. Still sad though for what you have been thru and sure wish we would get to see you this winter..

  2. What a bummer, all that packing and unpacking. That is like going on a trip and 'moteling' it!
    That must be the worst part, as you have found yourselves some pretty nice, comfy, warm digs.
    I hope that you enjoy your vacation from Full Timing, with friends.
    BUT, Please don't forget to write!
    Happy Sightseeing, Penny, TX
