It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Hot Liesure Drive Home.

Our Location Today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

We slept in until 8:30 again this morning knowing that there was no rush ahead of us. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast finishing our coffees at the computers checking other blogs and E-mails. We also checked the local weather forecast for Frankenmuth as well as back home and we knew the cool down from the heat we had enjoyed had ended.
 Now our jobs took on the sense of urgency in order to beat the heat. I readied the bedroom and our medical equipment to be taken into the apartment when we arrived home. Kathy did the dishes and secured the kitchen. I then packed away the computers.

Now I headed out to flush the tanks and finish hooking up the truck to the trailer. By the time the tanks were emptied Kathy had readied the inside and had brought in the slides. It took another five minutes to stow the sewage hoses and lock the last of the cabinets. By 10:00 the truck was rolling its way towards the exit of the Frankenmuth Jellystone RV Park.

We had an appointment set for 1:30 at the RV dealer so the one hour drive put us ahead of schedule. Passing by the entrance and seeing the parking area for RVs packed we decided to go back to Bob Evans for a slow leisure lunch. We pulled into their parking lot with plenty of room for parking.
 Once inside we chose to take our time enjoying their Farmers Hamburger. It was a quarter pound sirloin patty with Swiss cheese, portabella mushrooms and spinach on a whole wheat bun. It melted in your mouth. Once that was finished we needed to use a bit more time so we ordered a slice of their apple pie a la mode. For each slice of these apple pies they sell from July 4th to August 19th Bob Evans donates $.20 towards the families of service personal that are overseas. Bob Evans even sent us on our way with a couple of free iced teas to go to help beat the heat.   
 Minutes later we were at the RV dealership with plenty of parking space available but because of the onslaught of trailers we had seen before lunch now had the dealership running behind schedule. We shopped around the store area making only one more minor purchase for the trailer at this time. We asked if we could look around some of the new trailers and were told as long as the door was open feel free to look. This helped us kill more time waiting for our trailer to be ready and give us ideas of what might interest us when the day came that we might decide to downsize our trailer. There were many good and not so good floor plans but these are only ideas as we don’t plan on downsizing for quite some time.
 By the time the trailer was ready it was nearing 5:30 so instead of driving home hungry we stopped up the road at a small restaurant called the Ram’s Horn. The parking lot had one driveway but I was able to turn in the back of their lot and then park along their curbs.  The heat of the day was wearing on us so again we took our time and enjoyed extra glasses of iced tea. We enjoyed Grilled Talapia with vegetables and topped it off with an Ice Cream Sundae.
 It was 7:00 by the time we left the restaurant and the parking lot was now a very tight fit. Our GPS spent more time recalculating than giving us any useful instructions on how to get home. Luckily I spotted the highway sign to I-75 and knew once we were on the highway we’d get home without the use of the GPS.
 We topped off our fuel at the duty-free before crossing at the Ambassador Bridge which always keeps our fuel costs down. As I approached the Canadian Immigrations the vehicle ahead was pulling away so after only a few questions about purchases we were on our way.
 By 9:00 we had taken what was needed from the trailer and were leaving the storage yard headed for the apartment. With only 140 days until Christmas I hope you are enjoying following our adventures. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
