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.

Relaxed Day Getting Reorganized and Ready To Roll.

Our Location today is the K.O.A in Wapakoneta, Ohio, U.S.A. 

After such a long travel day yesterday it felt great just to lay in bed and relax this morning. The clock was already past 8:00 when my back started bothering me forcing me to give up the cozy warmth of the winter bedsheets. The temp wasn’t that cold but the inside of the trailer felt like an Icebox so I immediately turned the Electric Fireplace on to warm things up for Kathy. Even as careful as I was she said she heard that distinct sound of the Coffee Mug touching the kitchen countertop. (I hardly heard it.) 

Very few remaining RVs after lunch
Not being in any rush today we spent the better part of the morning getting caught up with our On-line reading. We even had a second cup of Coffee/Tea to help us relax. The only extra chore we did this morning was gathering the Recycle and Trash that I would later dispose of after lunch. For lunch Kathy simply made us each a bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup that we both enjoyed. 
This side of the park was empty.
After lunch Kathy did some Bookkeeping while I got rid of the Trash and Recycle before returning to reorganize the Basement. When we had the Blowout on Monday I found out that I had buried some of the important tools that should have been right by the basement door openings. Once I had finished changing the tire I just packed everything away in a not too orderly fashion so we could get off the shoulder of the Highway. We are still Very Grateful to the Missouri Highway Maintenance Crew that day for helping to wave the traffic over to the passing lane. 

Once the Basement and the back of the truck were organized the way they should have been I checked our Propane Tanks. One was starting to feel a bit light even though it is just being used for cooking on the stove and running the Fridge when traveling. In Ontario you pay by the size of the container whether it is empty or only needs topping off.  I decided to have it topped off here since you only pay for what you use here in the US. When I waved to John and pointed to the Tank he immediately came over with his Golf Cart and brought it over to refill. By the time that I walked over to settle the bill he drove both myself and the Tank back to the trailer. 

This morning there were only ten RVs left after everyone that was leaving hit the road. In last night’s Blog, I wrote that there were only Fifty Sites at this park. When I went to drop off the trash I saw it was nearly a Hundred Sites and only ten were left empty for the night. My apologies for the mistake.

I phoned Leisure Trailer Sales in Lakeshore, Ontario so they would know we would be stopping by sometime tomorrow afternoon so they could schedule the work that needs to be done on our RV. I also started working on a Spreadsheet List in the later part of the afternoon while Kathy did some reading.

It was past 5:00 when we decided to go out for supper as a Last Hurrah for this trip. Driving to the other side of I-75 we spotted a Bob Evans. It’s been over seven months since we ate at a location in Michigan and we enjoy their food so that was where we went. Kathy enjoyed their Turkey and Dressing while I enjoyed their Country Style Steak. Both meals were tasty, well presented, reasonably priced and the service was great.

After leaving Bob Evans we stopped at the Gas Station and topped off our Diesel before heading back Home at Wapakoneta K.O.A. When we had left for supper there might have been thirty RVs in the Park. When we returned, there might have been twenty sites remaining. It is a clean well cared for park that caters to its customer’s needs. 

I prepped the truck for towing and have it backed up just shy of being hooked up. We’ll be back in Ontario tomorrow but we still have way too much happening that is keeping us busy. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

You Might Be a Redneck If 

You've given mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a dog.


  1. Hope your arrival in Canada will be smooth and travel uneventful. The weather could be warmer to welcome you home but I'm sure you are glad to be back.

  2. You'd save a lot of propane and be safer if you rode with the propane off to the refrigerator.
