After an almost 18 month hiatus, in a couple of months, we’ll hit the road and get back to some serious RV’ing. Our little tent on wheels has been lounging in storage, while we gallivanted around the world and then we lounged the winter away babysitting our grandson.
Voyage planning is almost complete, as the route is planned, campground reservations are almost complete and we have a service appointment at our dealer, for the annual inspection and de-winterising. Read on to check out our route and the campgrounds we are visiting. Continue reading
That’s right, after a hiatus of way to many years (40+) I am heading back to school, albeit a virtual school, or more specifically Blogging University’s Blogging 101 course. The course starts today and our first assignment is covering a little about me and the W’s – who, why, what, where, etc. Read on to view my first assignment, as I provide a brief introduction and answer all the W’s. Please fell free to provide comments and suggestions for improvement. Continue reading
Once set up at our ocean front site at King Neptune Campground we sat down and enjoyed the obligatory cuppa tea, enjoying the abundant ocean views and listening to the lapping of the waves rolling onto the shore. Was the 5,000+ drive worth it, a resounding yes, we could easily stay here for ever, well at least until it gets cold in a few weeks.
After enjoying the excellent North Sydney KOA, with the unobstructed, elevated views of the main navigable channel into the huge Bras D’Or Lake, for more than a week, it was time to resume our sojourn around North America. After an easy 200 miles we pulled into the campground a few miles from the famous Peggys Cove and – WOW, can we get any closer to the ocean?
Hyclass Ocean Campground the lum is a reekin’
After our scenic drive around the coast to Canso, on arriving at the campground, we stopped at the office and picked up a bucket of wood. Expecting a clear evening, it would be the perfect time to sit outside and have a campfire take away the first vestiges of the Fall chill. We got it fired up just before sunset, so we would have some nice coals generating heat once the sun went down.
Boondocking at RV Dealer
Unable to use the shower, kitchen sink or dishwasher it is time to head for repairs. The factory service centre didn’t have any available appointments, but fortunately Hitch n Go RV Inc in Delhi, Ontario could help us on Wednesday. Parked next to the service building, we are comfortably boondocking with 30 Amps and water hookups.
The Rally highlight for most attendees is probably the factory tour on the Saturday morning. Being the weekend, no production is taking place, which permits us a detailed look at the production line, without getting in the way. If you want to view the production process, tours are available upon request.
One of our objectives on this extended trip around North America is to attend the annual Rally hosted by Redwood RV, the manufacturer of our house on wheels. Although the Rally was only a few days, we decided to stay at Shipshewana South Campground for a week to recharge the batteries after driving across country.
