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.

Last Day of Summer.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

One can really get used to sleeping with the windows open at night as long as it doesn’t get too cold. We had a busy day planned but we couldn’t start too early so that meant we didn’t have a pretravel night’s sleep. We slept soundly and when we finally woke up we enjoyed a bit of leisure time while we had breakfast. But as they say all good things must come to an end. As soon as we finished eating Kathy washed the morning dishes while I went to close up our CPAPs, computers and HUB. 

Using a shopping cart from downstairs we managed to get the truck loaded in one fell swoop. It was just after 10:00 when we were on our way to run a couple of errands. We had to order a couple of pictures that I photo-shopped last night but I don’t have the printing medium that they will be made on. We’ll be able to pick them up tomorrow afternoon. Our next stop was at a local Subway where we ordered a foot long sandwich that we would later share for our lunch. 

Our last stop of the morning was the Guardian Storage yard to pick up our trailer. It didn’t take long to transfer everything we’d brought from the apartment into the trailer. While Kathy stowed everything for the purpose of travel I readied things to hitch up. By 11:30 we were on our way heading to our overnight destination. 

With this being the last full day of summer we had plans to go camping at the Windsor Campground. Towing the trailer all of 5.4 miles we arrived at our destination for the night. (That’s the shortest trip we’ve ever made.) Within minutes we were registered and heading for our site. Unfortunately because of our length we had to unhook the truck so we didn’t stick out in the roadway. The actual temperature itself was quite comfortable but being on the sunny side of the trailer hooking up the utilities the sun was wearing me down. Having to stop a number of times to stay hydrated really slowed the setup process. It was almost an hour by the time the trailer was level and the utilities hooked up.
Kathy liked the sign.

Lots of nice seasonal sites.
Once the slides were all extended Kathy started going through all the cabinets removing anything that could possibly freeze and packing it in a storage box. I busied myself rearranging the basement since we’d taken a few things out to use since our return north in April. I then went inside to set up our CPAP equipment, then our computers and our HUB. Kathy and I both have Sleep Apnea and require CPAP equipment to help us breath while we are sleeping. The HUB is a device we use as our home phone in the apartment but when we are traveling in Canada we can take it with us and it doubles as our WiFi connection. 

After having supper we watched a bit of the Windsor News on CBC on the antenna since there is no cable at this park. Boy was that different! It wasn’t even close to the broadcast we get at home and it’s a far cry from what we get on the road in the US. The highlight of our day was enjoying our last campfire of the summer which helped us burn the last of our firewood because we can’t bring it across the International Border. We even roasted marshmallows while enjoying the fire.  

We’ll enjoy our last night camping this year but the real reason we came here starts in the morning. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Customer: Excuse me, but I saw your thumb in my soup when you were carrying it.

Waitress: Oh, that's okay. The soup isn't hot.
