Starting to move into Sherman

It's snowing again!  Hard to believe that only a few days ago there was no snow on the ground.  Conditions were great for us to get things moved into Sherman.  That has changed.  Since Thursday we have had snow every day and it is wet, heavy and sloppy snow.  I keep shovelling because I don't want it to freeze up on us and make a total mess.  It is wet and very slushy, even Whiskey isn't enjoying her walks much.

We have always loved to travel, even before RVing.  Lots of the time it was tent camping, or quick cheap one week trips down south to all inclusive resorts and trips to England to see relatives.

Miserable weather

Well the weather around here has turned miserable and slushy. It's not cold out...the temperature is hovering around the freezing mark. But we had about 5 cm's (2 inches) of wet snow overnight, and it drizzled with rain most of the day, and now it's coming down as wet snow again.

Sorting out Sherman

I am trying to work on organizing our stuff better in Sherman, but I don't want it to cost us money with additional storage containers.  If anyone has any cheap tricks they use for organizing things please let us know.

What I do on Bus Tours

On Saturday I had been thinking about what I needed to do this week in preparation for leaving on March 1st.  I was going to do a bit each day, but that quickly got put to the back burner as I had an email requesting me to do a bus tour for Sunday, the next day and this coming Wednesday. So I now had some work to do for this.

Beautiful Churches

When Kevin and I travel around, especially in small towns, we love to look at the different types of achitecture.

So we almost bought a new GPS unit the other day. They sure have come down in price, just like everything else electronic!

Jumping Deer

Well sorry the blog is late today.  Kevin drove me up to Perth yesterday to meet up with my dad to go to his place again, and he thought I was going to do the blog and I thought he was.  So now I am doing the blog.

Mostly Mexican

The other day I talked about cooking food in Sherman and mentioned that we don't eat out very often.  Normally we don't even eat out once a month.  The main reasons are that we really like our own cooking, and it is generally expensive and not worth the price.

Yesterday, when we drove down to pick up the rims and tires, we also took Whiskey for a walk at the Heber Down Conservation Area near Whitby, Ontario.

Campground etiquette, part 2

When we workcamped at the KOA in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island in the summer of 2008, part of our job was a once a week garbage detail. This also entailed tidying up the firepits at the various vacated sites that day.

Do you like caves?  Kevin and I sure do!  We have seen caves now in four different countries, Canada, United States, Mexico and England.  I think the two caves that are our favourites, are Kartchner Caverns in Arizona and Grutas de Garcia (Garcia Caves) in Mexico.

Apparently I have a twin

Ruth asked me to pick up a couple of things on the way home from work. So, I'm in the grocery store, and get to the checkout line. There's only one person in front of me, and she's busy paying her bill.

Cooking in the motorhome

Well we are late with the blog today.  Sorry about that readers.  It got late last night and we realized that the post wasn't done and by that time we were both too tired.

Only 3 weeks until we leave for Florida

Yep, only 3 weeks to go. All that snow in Baltimore area had better be melted by then! We hope to be in that area for our first night on the road. I guess I better make sure the furnace in the motorhome is working properly!

Going to visit my father

I went to visit my father this past week. Kevin drove me to Perth on his driving route that he does every afternoon during the week and Dad met me there.

Cell phones and communication

Readers Trent and Teresa asked about what we do for cell phone when we're on the road. Well, there's a bit of a story to that...

This blog

The main reason we started writing online was to be able to have friends and family be informed as to where we are and what we're doing when we're travelling. And for the first 18 months, we used a trip journal site that we had to pay about $80 per year for. This worked just fine.

National Parks

We in Canada are very lucky to have a country that has such beautiful National Parks.  Having said that the United States and Mexico also have fantastic parks and that is what is so nice about the world, because each country is so unique.

Free...or included?

This discussion has come up between Ruth and I on a few different road trips, and in a few different circumstances. Is something free, or is it included in the price you have already paid for another service?
