The Count-down is On!


Only three more sleeps! Getting ready for this adventure has been a lot of work There are so many details to take care of when you plan to be gone for so long: house sitter arranged, check; ownerships, insurance, health cards, credit cards all up-to-date, check; e-tests and safety on both new and old motor home, check; old motor home sold, check; tires checked, backup camera installed, gas tank filled, propane tank filled. The list goes on. Today we’re nearly there. Because of the cold weather, we have to refrain from putting items such as liquid soaps, cooking oils and anything that we don’t want to freeze, into the motor home until the last minute. The same goes for the computers and other electronics.Tonight I’ll do one last laundry and put the clean clothes in. We’re nearly ready!

Today and tomorrow it’s dentist appointments, eye exams and car licence renewal, since it will expire while we’re away. A Christmas party to attend tomorrow night, and then our calendar is clear for take off.

But we’re a little late getting away to avoid the snow. This is what we see out our window this morning!

Snow day

Hope she likes the snow!

Jim had the snow blower out. We still have to find someone to take care of the snow while we’re away, as our house sitter can’t do it.

We’re looking forward to the escape, but I have to admit it is rather pretty in the neighbourhood today.

  1. As you head southwest to Toronto and on through Chicago, I’m sure you’ll see more snow. Hope it’s all off to the side of the road and you have clear driving until Arizona. Take care and keep in touch!
