The weather has certainly taken a turn, and now has a definite fall, if not winter flavour!
Now it is time to cut the expense of two houses and get all my ‘stuff’ into one. My truck camper is already out squatting at the new house (got it winterized just in time, I hope), and the fifth wheel waits patiently in the driveway for it’s chance.
I booked off all the rest of the month to give lots of time for the switch. Of course, last weekend was spent in Jasper camping out and visiting with lots of old friends up there.
Next weekend, it is time for a short road trip (!) to Saskatchewan for a buddy’s retirement party – and to do a bit of camping of course.
Took a shortcut on a couple of the ‘moving’ trips, which involves a bush road that at times seems to be more like boating than driving. One deep water hole after another. At least the bottom is solid and there is no real danger of getting stuck, but the front bumper did start a tidal wave crossing one of the deeper ones.
Oh, and I booked off all of October as well for some vacation time ;-) I’m thinking I might spend a lot of it on Vancouver Island and area – where the weather is likely to be a lot more livable than here on the continental divide. After reading about the Bayfield Bunch planning for a southern departure in a few weeks, that has me getting itchy to head south as well. The weather reports show that it is still pretty hot in some of my favourite spots, so perhaps there is no rush to get that far south right away.
Perhaps I should just decide to pull the pin and retire, and not have to worry so much about the timelines! Any way it works out, I can’t wait to get back on the road.
