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.

More Refining And Research.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

Why is it that I wake on and off all night only to sleep later in the morning to make up for it? That also means that Kathy sleeps later because as long as she senses that I’m in bed she stays asleep. The fact that we had near normal temperatures also added to our sleeping late. We were finishing breakfast at shortly before 9:00 this morning but there was a lot of reading to do so it was past 10:00 before I finally made it outside.  
The first thing was to reorganize our shed before give extra water to the freshly seeded grass. I also had to inform our neighbour Larry that the rodents we displaced when we removed the wood pile behind Stan’s shed had found a new home under his shed. We’ll get together in a few days and serve them their final eviction notice. The sky was still cloud covered this morning and with the forecast of heavy rain I didn’t feel like just getting into something and have to close up. 

At the start of May, I had added a countdown counter on our sidebar set to our departure to the southwest for November 1st. A couple weeks ago the counter suddenly changed its appearance, its functioning and it showed in triplicate. After trying to adjust it the only thing I could do was to hit the “Delete” button. I also noticed countdown counters on other blogs having nearly the same affect. The only thing I could do was try again. The finished product is not what we had before and it still acts strangely but it’s not in triplicate. 
Kathy spent most of the afternoon doing more research on things we’ll be able to see and do on our first Southwest Winter trip this year. Some have criticized the amount of research that we do but I can see Kathy’s point about seeing all we can while we are in the area because life is too short and who knows if we’ll ever get back there again. 

The sky seemed to be clearing so I went out and dumped our tanks. A few weeks ago I installed a twist-on gate valve assembly on each of our discharge ports. Once I empty the black tanks the gate valve is closed and the grey tanks are used to backflush the black tanks. Again closing the grey tanks, the gate is opened cleaning out the blank tanks more thoroughly without having to waste clean drinking water. This process will come in handy when we are boondocking and have a limited water supply.
The weather guessers on the 6 o’clock News acknowledged that the big storm we were supposed to get had fizzled out but we should see it tomorrow. “Seeing is Believing”! Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

Ask a silly question 

Why is it called lipstick if you can still move your lips?


  1. I always do a huge job on researching the area we are going to visit. I never know if we will be back in the area and want to be sure to see as much as possible when we stop.
    I also find it a huge help to publish where we think we will be traveling and ask readers to give suggestions. We have been able to visit places I don't think we would have visited without the help of fellow bloggers.

  2. Just discovered your blog and thoroughly enjoy it. We dont camp anymore and never really went too far. We bought our camper used. On our last outing I had read about pouring ice cubes down the toilet to clean out the tank. Got home and my husband made the mistake of opening the valve on our cement driveway. Nothing nasty thanks, but a thousand fragments of toilet paper. What a mess.
