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.

Bugged Out.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

Well for me last night was a typical pretravel night in other words I barely slept and lay in bed next to Kathy until she woke up at 7:30. After enjoying a leisurely breakfast and watching the Weather Channel for the Indiana area we picked up our pace a bit in order to leave town before the predicted rainstorm arrived. It seems that the more often we go through the routine of breaking camp the faster and more adept we become.

Since Kathy wants to become more familiar with our new Rand McNally GPS she opted to use the older Garmin. Unfortunately the Garmin kept trying to turn us around in the opposite direction from which we needed to go. Like our trip from home to Indiana the Garmin spent more time in the off mode than doing what she was supposed to be doing giving us accurate directions.

Once we had made it safely back into the state of Michigan and rolling eastward on I-94 we chose to stop at Cracker Barrel for lunch. Kathy enjoyed a nice chicken and salad plate with iced tea while I had another breakfast with coffee. The coffee seemed to ease the scratchy sensation that was building in my throat. After eating our meal we took a little more time to walk around the store area for the purpose of stretching our legs before we got back on the road by noon.

When we had left the fairgrounds the sky had been overcast but by the time we got onto the Interstate the skies remained clear for the remainder of the trip. The only delays in the traffic were a few drivers thinking that driving at the minimum posted speed was the best way to travel.

Arriving at the Ambassador Bridge Duty Free we always make certain to take advantage of the lower fuel costs which today was $3.699 a gallon for diesel well below what it costs back home. Crossing the bridge our wait was less than a minute and after only a few questions we were told to have a good day.

We arrived at the storage yard before 2:00 and spent the next half hour unhooking and loading the truck with everything that we’d be needing at the apartment. It took the next two hours unloading everything putting it all away and getting everything set up as if we had never left.

By that time we were starting to get hungry and neither of us felt like cooking so using a McDonald’s coupon Kathy found while going through our mail we both ate supper for less than $10.00.

Back at the apartment it was quite a chore to write the blog because it seems that I have come down with whatever Kathy had even though I keep telling her that I didn’t catch it. At least in the apartment I can use Buckley’s and hopefully shake it faster than she did. Sorry no Pictures tonight. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
