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.

Aching Muscles.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After going to bed just before 11:30 last night the last thing either Kathy or I expected was to sleep without even waking one time until this morning. Top that off with sleeping until after 8:30 that’s a whole nine hours I was completely baffled. The mystery will have to wait because we had plans for today.

While having breakfast we noted that the temperature was only 48 F (9 C) which didn’t look too appealing to rush outside and start working in. We decided to catch up on our morning reading and gathering our supplies first before finally heading out. 
With the slides out we were ready to get busy.
It was definitely a jacket morning even with the sun beaming brightly. We arrived at the storage yard by 10:45 with the intention of cleaning the trailer just as we had done with the car and truck last week. Opening the slides Kathy was methodical at making certain to remove anything that could spoil due to the cold winter weather that is sure to arrive before our departure south in 94 days. She also took the time to change the bed linens to the flannel sheets so we won’t suffer the freezing feeling of linen sheets in the first few days of travel. Since I took down the stepladder from the rear of the trailer I took the time to inspect any caulking on the roof that could allow water to leak in. It was fortunate that I did the inspection and that I had the silicon sealer in the truck because I spent the next hour preventing possible leaks. 
Streaks like most of the trailer had before we started cleaning.

I had only gotten started cleaning the nose cap on the trailer when Kathy called me for lunch. Having brought supplies from home she served up a nice warm bowl of chicken noodle soup with a half sandwich and hot cup of tea. 
Nose Cap nice and clean.
After lunch Kathy did the dishes while I returned to the job of cleaning the nose of the trailer. Kathy soon joined me figuring that the joint effort would make the job go much quicker and it did. I continued working on the upper section from the ladder while Kathy did the lower section while standing firmly on the ground. Just as last week we were using no water but using “The Solution” a waterless wash and wax spray that we had purchased while at the “Escapade” in Goshen, Indiana back in May. By 4:00 we had only cleaned half of the trailer but the heavy scrubbing was taking its toll on the both of us after having used muscles that we haven’t for quite some time. We called it a day with plans to finish the job later this week. 
Nice clean and shiny.
By the time we had everything unloaded and in the apartment we both needed a quick Snap to recover. Kathy made a wonderful macaroni and cheese dish with portabella sautéed mushrooms while I grilled a couple of nice chicken breasts for supper. After watching the news and doing the dishes we got into a movie that caught our attention. Tomorrow I have an early doctor’s appointment before we get into our next project. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Nice job on spiffing up the nose cap on your trailer. Now the bugs will die happy on a clean surface... :cD
