Our Location today is Lakeshore, Ontario, Canada.
As soon as the blog was posted last night Kathy was off to bed no longer able to keep her eyes open. Since I still felt energized my goal was to finish editing the Wedding pictures that I shot a couple weeks ago. Within the hour I finally had it all uploaded on a memory stick and finally got to bed by 1:00. As typical on a Pretravel Night both of us managed to toss and turn only got about half the night’s sleep that we needed.
|Getting ready to start our Adventure.|
When the alarm went off at 7:30 we both wanted to roll over for just a few minutes longer but we also knew that every minute that we wasted in leaving would cut into our travel time. Once breakfast was over we both had our chores to do, most were the same as we’d always done with only a moderate variable that it was a different trailer.

Kathy continued doing her final packing while I went out too disconnect our utilities and dump our tanks. It is so much easier with only the one sewer connection to work with. After hooking up the truck and we were making the final checks the park staff were already coming along blowing out the waterlines to shut down the park for the season.
|All Gone, until next Spring.|
Making certain that we could safely maneuver the tight corners Kathy went ahead and removed some illuminating markers that some of the inconsiderate seasonals had planted right along the edge of the asphalt and the grass on their site. As we pulled out of Wildwood Golf and RV Park at 10:15 the owners Val and Joe were at the office waving good bye and wishing us safe travels.
|Just arrived at Leisure Trailer Sales.|
Since it’s only been two months since we’ve had our new Home there are a few bugs that had to be taken care of at the dealers before we left so our first stop was Leisure Trailer Sales in Lakeshore. I have repeatedly communicated some of these issues but when we arrived at 11:00 we had to coordinate all the issues. They had previously told us we’d only be there for a couple of hours but when we were told they wouldn’t be getting it finished today we were disappointed. When Kathy reminded them that it was our Home we were issued a gate key for after hour entries.
With all the rushing we’ve been doing we had to do we drove to Wendy’s at the Pickwick Plaza to have our lunch. When that was done, we walked across the street to the Service Ontario building to raise the weigh rating on the truck license before crossing the border. We drove around the corner to the Supper Clean Laundromat where we had bedding, towels and clothes that needed cleaning. Working together it took nearly two hours before we headed off to Guardian Storage. We got our Mail for the final time until spring, picked up a Thermal Blanket from our Climate Controlled Storage Unit as well as dropping off some containers on Freezable liguids. Since we still have some driving to do here in Ontario we had to stop and add fuel to the truck.
It was after 5:00 by the time we stopped at McDonalds to have supper and to use their free WiFi. Hopefully we’ll get everything done before noon tomorrow and finally be able to honestly be “On The Road Again”.
Leaving McDonalds, we’ll be stopping at our friend Kathie’s apartment for a final visit before next spring. We’ll also be Giving her the Memory Stick with all her daughter Christine’s wedding pictures.
Here is hoping to be writing our next blog from Somewhere in Michigan. If we don't have our own MiFi we may not post for a day or two. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!
It’s about time.
