Mammoth Cave, Kentucky (Day 3)

Yesterday evening after Kevin got back from the hotel where he had used the internet to post our blog,  we headed over to John and Ellen's (one of our followers) who made contact with us as they were coming to Mammoth Caves as well and wondered if we would be able to cross paths.  We had a nice evening with them talking about each of our RV travels.  We arranged to go for a hike with them for today.

Wild Cave Tour

Had a totally peaceful sleep last night…didn’t hear a sound. But it did get chilly. We usually leave the furnace off when we go to bed, and only turn it on if one of us gets up in the night to do so. When we got up at 6:30am or so it was 41F (5.5C) in Sherman and the furnace worked for almost an hour to get things reasonably warm.

Mammoth Cave National Park

We are at Mammoth Cave National Park, and we have internet. Sort of.

Bardstown, Kentucky (day 2)

Turned out to be another beautiful blue sky day yesterday, although quite a bit cooler. High was around 58F ( 14C).

Bardstown, Kentucky

Spent yesterday looking for new hiking boots. We both needed a new pair, and the cave tour on Saturday requires that they be "above the ankle" type of boots.

One of the things we like to do is to visit caves. One of the reason we are taking the route we are is to return to Mammoth Cave National Park.

Seymour, Indiana

We made it to North Vernon, Indiana and pulled over a couple of different times in town trying to get internet. Should have headed right for the library. Oh well.

Two hours at the border

It wasn't even that busy. But they decided that Sherman should undergo an x-ray inspection, so we had to wait...and wait....and wait...

Heading for the U.S.

We all ended up having a really nice afternoon and evening yesterday. And yes, Sherman is very happy to have new boots!

New tires

So much for telling you how cheaply we can live! Just spent $930 on tires!

Dundas, Ontario (day 2)...updated 6:30pm

So we had to take Sherman for his "e-test" today, because the government of Ontario has rules that your vehicle has to have an emissions test every two years. Sherman's current plate sticker expires in February, and we will be FAR away from Ontario at that time, so it had to be done before we leave.

Made it through Toronto!

We were only a few minutes late leaving this morning. We had planned on 9:00am, so when we drove out at 9:40am, we figured "yeah, that's not bad".

Hitting the road!

The day is finally here...we will leave this morning, and start heading south on our 6 month motorhome journey to Mexico and back.

Harvest Hosts

You all know we love free camping, boondocking, and dry camping. Or any combination of those terms. We're not really "RV Park" type of people, so when we heard about Harvest Hosts we thought this was a fantastic idea.

Whiskey has a clean bill of health

Just a short update on Whiskey.

Two days to go...!

I picked up Ruth at the airport yesterday morning. She was a little tired, having gotten up at 3:00am to get to the Halifax airport in time for her flight. But she said everything went well.

Up early this morning

Just can't seem to sleep in. Of course I was in bed by 10pm last night, so I guess it was still a decent nights sleep. Although I did wake up at 12:30am or so to the thunp thump thump of the music.

Kentville, NS (Day 3)

Up this morning around 7am had a nice cup of tea and and a short time later Lindsey was up.  We had breakfast and then got going on preparing lunch and dinner for later.  Lunch was an Asian Duck Soup with the leftover duck from supper last night

Kentville, NS (Day 2)

Lindsey drove Justin to work today and I got up after just they left at about 7:30am.  Justin works in the carpentry business.  He just started working for a new business within the last month or so and they work on various jobs in

Officially unemployed

Well, today was my last day doing the blood driving job. And Ruth is pretty much finished at the campground. And I quit my other job at the RV place a week ago.

Arrived in Halifax, NS

Well that was an early morning. I was up at 4:30am, had some tea and cereal and made myself a sandwich for a snack as well as some carrots and grapes to munch on in case I get hungry. I have to think of these thing now, because it isn't so easy to just grab something now that I can't have gluten.

On my own

Ruth has headed to Halifax for a few days and has left Whiskey and I to fend for ourselves!

Had a nice long weekend.

It was Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, so Monday was a holiday. We went to my sisters for turkey dinner, and then stayed overnight in my parents condo in Ottawa Sunday night.

You never know what the future holds

Despite all of the planning that you do, you never know what twists and turns lie in the future that might change things.

What's happening...?

Lol...well now that you have asked that question, LOTS!  First off we would like to say thank you to everyone who commented on Whiskey and expressed concern for her.  Well she is bouncing back AGAIN.

More on Whiskey and budget things

Well we have another update on Whiskey.  Yesterday I took her to the vet's to have the staples removed.  The technician removed two of the staples before noticing that something wasn't right with Whiskey.

Forgot to do an update on our adsense account. We had a good month in September, putting $78.42 towards our travel fund for this winter.

Driving and RVing in Mexico

Some of you mentioned yesterday that you would be scared to drive and RV in Mexico. I don't blame you, as we were also a little unsure about doing it ourselves, and so we drove with other experienced travelers for the first few weeks of each of our last two winters in that country.
