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.

We’re Here.

Our Location today is London, Ontario, Canada.

Last night we went to bed with the attitude that we’d wake up when we woke up and we weren’t going to worry what time we got on the road. Well it seemed that plus all the fresh air we breathed in at the soccer game worked. It might have worked just a bit too well because we both slept in until past 8:30 this morning. 
Eastbound on the 401.
It was nearly midnight by the time we posted the blog last night so unlike most pretravel nights the computers and printer didn’t get packed until this morning along with our CPAPs and food from the fridge. By the time we had everything loaded into the truck it was nearly 10:30. 

At the storage yard after unloading everything into the trailer I helped Kathy store some of it for traveling before prepping the truck. I was just getting ready to hitch up when she closed the trailer with everything secured. 

Our Exit. Only minutes away from camp.
Since the railroad track crossing at Jefferson is getting quite rough to cross with just the truck I chose to head towards Walker Road with the trailer. There was another reason I also wanted to go that way as well. There is a Canadian Tire Store on the way to the highway and I needed to stop for a jug of Diesel additive. Once we were parked in their lot we also saw the nearby A&W sign and since it was 11:30 and our light breakfast had already worn off we used another coupon for a tasty and inexpensive lunch. 

With both those chores taken care of it was 12:05 as we rolled up the eastbound ramp to the 401. We seemed to be lucky that the predicted wind was moving in the same direction that we were and the forecasted rain never showed up for the entire two hour trip. 

When we arrived at the London K.O.A. we were surprised to see a new sign at the road calling it Campers Corners. Like many other K.O.A.s with time and a slow economy it is more economical for them to give up their franchise. We have mentioned in the past that this location is more a transient park and is far from a resort. They no longer acknowledge the K.O.A. discount card but do except Good Sam or Auto Club for a discount. 
Kathy catching my better side.
While we were checking in you could hear the distant rumble of thunder so we didn’t waste too much time setting up. Once the truck was closed and the Weber set up I went inside to continue with my set up. I couldn’t have closed the door and the rain started coming down like someone had a fire hose pointed at us. It seems we are in the path of on and off storms for the rest of the night. Kathy ended up cooking supper inside the trailer because each time I was about to go back outside the rain would start again.     

Tomorrow we have a few errands to run then the visiting begins. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

  3. Your new spot looks lovely. We have had to cross some scarey railroad tracks before. We made notes ...never again. We will go miles out of out way to miss them. Enjoy.
