Aug 11, 2016 - State jumping

Today is a new day, very humid again, there are flood warnings, happy to be moving on! They sure are doing a lot of road construction, much needed as I feel I'm burning calories as we drive. Lots of traffic during this day as we travel from state to state. Minnesota, Wisconson,Illinois ,Indianna, now Michigan. No stopping at any of these as we really wanted to get on the othe side of Chicago. I needed to take a chill pill because lots of traffic and lanes are not my friend. I had to be co-pilot for getting through, so. Couldn't even sleep...

Jul 17, 2014 - Kalamazoo, Michigan

Our first stop in Michigan is Kalamazoo, which we've never visited before. We're staying in a county RV park which is just beautiful with 38 RV sites and a swimming lake and trails, all for only $26 a night. After setting up the RV, our 1st stop was the dog park to let devil dog burn off some of that puppy energy. Luckily, he found a new friend, Koby, who loved to wrestle as much as he does. So they played for over 2 hours. The weather was gorgeous with temperatures in the low 70's and the dogs had 4 acres of grass and trees to play in....

May 6, 2013 - We're Off

We are outta here. Left home at 10:30 AM. Early for us. Lunch at a service center between London and Windsor. We are crossing the border at Windsor instead of Sarnia as we want to go to the Camping World store close to Ann Arbor to pick up a few items that we need. Crossed the border at 2:00 PM and it was no problem but we lost all our tomatoes as you are not allowed to take them across border. Canada to USA. Other way doesn't matter. The reason is that Canadian companies were importing tomatoes from Mexico and packaging them in Canada and...

Jan 2, 2012 - Sick and Tired

I'm sure you all had a better New Years Eve that me. I spent it throwing up in a Illinois rest area due to food poisoning and haven't been the same since. I was going to tell you all about Michigan and wolverines but can't sit up very long other than to say we have yogurt going to southern California. Sales knows we want a load to Florida next and thats the only load I will take. Even if we have to wait around a day for it, Florida is next! Then it's a month of r&r from trucking. I'm quite amazing at the amount of yogurt this country eats...

Sep 7, 2011 - Entering USA

Aug 5th On our way to US border, we stopped in Mount Elgin, to visit my friend Thelma Shaw (she lived in Port McNeill for about 6 months in 1992). It was wonderful to see her again after all these years. While Thelma and I chatted, the children and Andy enjoyed her pool and hot tub; everyone was happy. Not only did Thelma feed us a yummy lunch (delighting the children even more), she sent us off with swimsuit for the girls, books, plums, tomatoes, and homemade jam!! Great timing on the jam as we had finished all the jam that Eva Waines gave...

May 2, 2011 - Finally, We are Ready to Leave!

It's a new RV season and we are on the road again. This time it's the “BIG TRIP”, Alaska. We'll head to Alaska through the states and have a short visit with my cousin, Lisa, in Winnipeg.

For those of you who haven't heard, David is the new president of Mount Royal University in Calgary and as of July 1 they will be living in Calgary. We'll head home from there arriving in...

May 27, 2009 - Kalamazoo, Michigan

We have been without Internet for over a week now and our phone reception has been lousy so sorry we haven’t been in touch. So I will try and update you at this time as to what we have been up to but before I do we have a huge announcement to make. We are so happy to say that Brian’s son Michael got engaged on Saturday to Simone. Of course those of you who know Brian know he was crying with joy. Also Michael got a new job and will be transferring to Ottawa in the middle of June so he is very happy about that. This means both Gary who is in...

Apr 25, 2009 - Kalamazoo - That's right Michigan

Not much to report on here. We are staying with Susan Cathcart's mum and dad, in a beautiful home, with a fair dinkum basement, that they live in during the winter, because it is warmer. We are staying in the camper and eating in the house, and boys are catching up on watching TV and some school work. Playing croquet in the yard and sleeping through thunderstorms. Tired today, we had a 8 hour trip up from Cave City, so we had a night off putting up the camper, which I think may have been easier. The boys did okay, between DS games and a...

Apr 10, 2007 - Michigan day 1 and 2

We made it to Kalamazoo after 5 days on the road. Rain, snow and cold most of the way and a flat tire in Kansas City, Mo. which took most of the day to get changed. Easter morning, the MoHo wouldn't start until we tore into the dash to find an obscure fuel shutoff switch that the owner's manual said would need resetting. We reset it. Varoooom. We're off!

Aug 2, 2004 - Donnell Lake, Vandalia, Michigan

By: Shelly Was able to make it to the lake house. My parents have been gracious enough to allow us and the furries to live at their lake house for the two months we are in the South Bend area. There are two houses, the main house and the bunk house. We are staying in the main house but most of our things are in the bunk house. There is plenty of room for visitors as we can comfortable sleep an additional 7 people!! Come visit! Hot Shot really enjoys the lake as she doesn't have to be on her leash since she minds us. The first morning here...
