It’s not every day that your truck turns over 100,000 kms, you give it new tires, you move out of your house where you have lived for 14 years, your kitten gets her first shots, and you pull out of the driveway for the last time.
Well, it was one of those weeks.
On the way back from Saskatchewan last week, I camped in this nice little campsite near Morrin, AB.
The fall colours were out as I delivered one of the last loads to my new residence. I have actually owned it for the last 7 years, but only made occasional visits. Now, all my ‘stuff’ is there, except what I have in the 5th wheel.
Hailey, having fun with about all that was left in the old house – a big garbage bag; and settled into the fifth wheel with her favourite toys.
My truck turned over 100,000 kms, and here is where it happened!
I guess I really should retire before my vacation leave runs out and I have to go back to work – with nowhere to live! We hauled up over Roger’s Pass, then turned south and caught the free ferry. Missed the one sailing by about a minute, so had a front row on the next boat in.
Did a roadside camp with a view (but no photo) of Slocan Lake!
Then, it was on to the ‘6TH SINIXT BARTER FAIR: October 1,2,3. Vallican, BC’
It is a small, but popular event in a beautiful location in the Slocan Valley. A wide range of local and international artists perform, and vendors provide food and goods for sale.
After this the ‘plan’ is to visit the west coast, and Vancouver Island to visit some friends and find some warmer weather!
