Our present "small but comfortable" Wagon is a 2008 Camper trailer(TravelAir Rustler), pulled by a 2008 Dodge Dakota, 4X4.l. Our home base is a resort Park, in Oliver, British-Columbia, Canada. I retired in 2005 and my Life Companion, Valerie, retired October 1, 2006 from nursing. We invite you to follow and share our new adventures and mishaps. Life is but an adventure full of dreams yet to be fulfilled!

May 21 to 25, 2013; Lee Creek, BC

MAY  21 Tuesday; Windshield repair on Jeep
Cloudy again today!  I took the Jeep over to Chase and had the windshield repaired.  It took 2 hours so I had a breakfast meal for lunch at a local restaurant.  I came home afterwards and fixed the toilet again.  I had to tighten the seal between the top bowl and the pedestal as it began to leak every time you lean on it.  It rained and rained in the afternoon so we watched the movies I had rented in Chase then it was dinner time.  Val cooked pork chops and small potatoes.  It was still raining when we went to bed at 10 pm

 
MAY  22, Wednesday; A training day for Val at the Park
Val had to go in to the Park for one day training.  While she was gone I went to Chase to return the movies and pick up a form at the Health clinic for my check-up.  I then drove to Scotch Creek Prov. Park where I had hot dog lunch and cold salad with the crew and Val who is enjoying herself.  I came home and worked on a few minor items and faxed a document to CML.  Val got home around 4 pm.  We drove back to Scotch Creek to Joanne and Don’s cottage for dinner.  We sat around and caught up to everyone’s news.  Present were Rick and Pat and friends of theirs, Harold and Madeleine.  We had a delicious roast beef with mash potatoes, vegetables and gravy.  Afterwards, Joanne served desert then we caught up to more news.  We came home around 9 pm

 
MAY  23, Thursday; Val’s chiropractor
Val had an appointment for 11 am in Kamloops so left around 10 am.  In the mean time, I drove to Sorrento where I picked up our subscription at the Pharmacy for both of us.  I came home and put up some ornaments such as clock and thermometer.  Val got home around 3 pm and after a quiet time, we went over to our neighbours, Ron and Theresa for dinner.  We had a mix of potatoes and vegetables and Mennonite Farmer sausages.  It was delicious and afterwards, we played a game of WIZARD.  Theresa won and Val came second.  The sky was totally clear when we walked home and the moon was shining our way albeit a bit cool out without a jacket!

 
MAY  24, Friday,
Cloudy and cool!  We just worked around the garden today and I put up some ornaments such as clock, thermometer and pictures.  I also called Cummins and made an appointment for next Friday to have “Beaver” serviced and made an appointment with “Trademaster” in Chilliwack for next Tuesday to have the base plate installed on the jeep so that we can pull it.  Happy Hour was at Bob and Gail and we had a visitor from Alberta, Allan, who brought his boat out and opened his cabin for the summer; Dan and Heather also joined us.

 
MAY  25, Saturday, 
It rained most of the day so we spent the day inside with the odd outing with Tucker.  We read most of the day.  It finally cleared enough with some sunshine at Happy Hour so we had it at our place.  Bruce and Joyce are here for the week-end so they also joined us.  Val cooked her first roast in the convection oven; it was a bit overcooked but still delicious.  We watched a couple movies in the evening.
