It's about time.

Many of you can relate to 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" and what we do to follow our dreams.

It’s about time We Had an Awesome Visit.

Our Location today is New Hamburg, Ontario.

After having a whole day to recover from the food poisoning we both managed to get a better nights sleep and woke feeling almost as good as new. We did keep breakfast light with coffee and cereal because neither of us really had much of an appetite. Once we were finished eating we were full steam ahead with packing up the inside of the trailer.

As Kathy was finishing the breakfast dishes I headed outside to flush our tanks before we hit the road. I had nearly finished draining and flushing the two forward tanks when Kathy finished loading her supplies into the truck. She is always trying to learn things that have to be done in preparation of leaving in case the day were to ever come that she would be the person having to do it. This attracted the attention of the gentleman named Moe next door who had seen me prepping the truck on Wednesday night and wondered why we hadn’t left. After a pleasant conversation and well wishes he said he’d best let us be underway. 
Noticed some of the trees are already changing colors.
In the next ten minutes we were hooked up and Quadruple Checked to make certain nothing was forgotten such as Monday. By the time we were exiting the driveway we both said at the same time we were hungry. Guess we worked harder than we thought. Stopped at the intersection we were looking at the Husky Truck stop where we’d eaten last night and said it was time for lunch. 

With lunch finished the truck turned eastbound on the 401 Highway because we had an awesome plan in mind. Unfortunately our G.P.S. couldn’t seem to understand why we weren’t heading in the direction of home and decided to give us the silent treatment. That’s right silent like not vocally telling us directions and by the time we realized this we had already passed our exit ramp and were stuck on the highway for another nine and a half miles to the next exit. Continuing with the silent treatment the typed directions took us down gravel buggy trails but we found our campground.

The Holiday Beach RV Park is a quaint trailer park with a dense tree canopy that is so low we now have a small tear in the edge of our roof to prove it. They did give us their largest sight but we did have to roll a few small boulders back in order to back in between the trees. Once we were backed in it didn’t take long to unhook the truck and set up the trailer and then we left. 

Kathy nearly went into a state of shock when the G.P.S. started shouting out directions again and within five minutes of being back on the road we were arriving at Camp Awesome. No you won’t find a sign for a campground with that name but if you are a follower of George and Suzie Yates at Awesome Travels you’ll know exactly where it’s at. 
George and Suzie.
When we arrived Suzie had just returned from visiting her 98 year old grandmother in the hospital and George was out cutting the grass.  Their hosts John and Lea are hosting a special gathering tomorrow. We were enjoying our conversations that varied from RV choices, to our travels, to WiFi equipment, to future travels. We were then given a tour of Camp Awersome and even were introduced to Molly and Buddy who have been giving Susie her daily puppy fix.

The time was just flying by and George and Suzie asked us to stay for supper. By doing so we got to see the “The Weber “Q” Man of Blogland” in action. Suzie also present Kathy with a bag of books to read and then Kathy remembered the books she had planned on giving Suzie were still back at the trailer so we’ll be stopping on our way out in the morning. George even offered an appetizer that thankfully Kathy declined though I accepted. He gave me one of his famous Suicide Pepperonis because I like spicy foods. This was so spicy it brought tears to my eyes. Man that was good!

All through the meal we continued talking and receiving a wealth of information from these experienced fulltimers. After getting the grand tour and learning a few more space creating modifications I’ll be using both George and I realized the visit had to end because it was time to write our blogs.
Supper is Served.
After saying farewells with the promise of crossing paths for future visits we headed for home. Again a big Thank You George and Suzie for an Awesome Visit with an Awesome Couple the meal was delicious and the company was superb. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
