Getting back to a routine

Well it has now been more than a week since getting back to Kingston and things are starting to get back to a routine, not that I'm happy about routine.

I thought the job market was supposed to be tough these days

I run the parts department at an RV dealer. It's only April, so it's still pretty quiet, but things are starting to pick up and we've had an early spring. So we're thinking it's going to be a much better year than last year was.

Reflecting on camping in Florida

Right away when you think of camping in Florida you think cha-ching ($$$).  We found that it doesn't necessarily have to be that way, but you have to spend some time on the internet to look for some good spots.

We're a little different...

One thing we've learned in 2 1/2 years of living in a motorhome is that we're quite a bit different than most RV'ers.

Some of our best days in the motorhome

Many new readers perhaps don't realize that we didn't know anything about the RV world until we dove into it head first back in October 2007 . We started an online journal back then, but it was hosted at another site and Ruth has been hard at work transferring all those posts and pictures to this blog.

Lets get everybody on drugs

I heard on the radio that the U.S. food and drug administration has approved the cholesterol lowering drug "Crestor" for use in people without cholesterol problems.

Overpriced RV'ing accessories

I run the parts department at an RV dealership during the season. While I was away for the month of March, my last minute replacement (who didn't last 3 weeks) did some shopping.

New boondocking opportunity

You all know that we don't like to pay to park our motorhome overnight when we're travelling, and that we're not "RV park" people. And although we're getting pretty good at finding places other than Walmart to spend the night, it's always good to come across other options.

Adsense advertisements

I thought I would publish a little comment about the ads surrounding our blog posts every day.

Ottawa for the day

Happy Easter Sunday everyone! As if we haven't done enough driving, we're doing the 2 hours each way to Ottawa today to have supper with my family. Not only is it Easter Sunday dinner, but it's my nephew Marshal's 10th birthday.

College baseball

For those of you who followed us during our recent trip to Myrtle Beach and Fort Myers...our sons baseball team continues to do very well...

Another Beautiful Day!

Well things are shaping up to be another gorgeous day, maybe a little breezier than yesterday.  Kevin went off to work today at the RV place, rode his bike today as it was so nice.

Well that was a fairly productive day

Got the new summer tires and rims put on the little car. Took it for a test drive, and everything is perfect. I love getting a great deal on buying something used! The tires are still a little noisy, but they've got a fairly agressive tread pattern for an all season. Way quieter than the snow tires though. But they handle really well so I'm sure they'll do fine.

Motorhome maintenance

Today is looking like a beautiful day, and I have lots of work to do to Sherman the motorhome. And, I'm going to take those noisy winter tires off the little car and put the new summer tires on. But we do have a job list for the motorhome that will have to be completed before we head to Mexico in the fall...

Trip expenses...updated 10:30pm

Just totalling everything up from our month away.

We spent a total of $1,080.50 CAN on fuel. We bought 375 gallons of gas at an average of $2.77 US per gallon. That's about 76 cents per litre Canadian, so fuel is still much cheaper in the US than it is here in Canada. I notice this morning it's 98 cents per litre in Kingston. We drove almost 3,700 miles, so there's that 10 mpg figure that always seems to come up with a motorhome.
