About Me

We went full-time Rving in October of 2005! We retired from full time to part-time as of the end of 2015. 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!

July 18 to 31, 2016; Change of address

JULY 18 to 31
Our first day off was sunny and warm although it did rain heavily overnight.  We went to Kamloops today to open an account at UPS store since the one in Salmon Arm is closing its doors as of July 27. 

Our new MAILING address is now:  230-1210 Summit Dr, Suite 255, Kamloops, V2C 6M1

We shopped for groceries at SUPERSTORE and COSTCO then we drove home.  After putting everything away, we had a drink then dinner.  Watched some tube but I was in bed by 9:30
Our second day off was cloudy and rainy, of course!  Val did some laundry and I spent time updating our new mailing address to all.
Back to work by Wednesday and it got sunny and hot!  No complaining yet!
July 25-26, two more days off spent driving to Salmon arm to pick the last of mail at UPS store (shut down) then to the Post Office to give them a change of address; $55 for 4 months!  Grocery shopping then home in time for a weird storm, the sky was totally orange/yellow but absolutely awesome!  Work was busy and hot; a shower afterwards was mandatory and refreshing.
It was a busy day at Gateway this last Saturday of the month; there was a BBQ put on by the social committee which was a success.  More people came in yesterday.  Sure can tell it’s the BC Day long week-end and a hot one to boot!
End of another month.

July 11 to 17, 2016; UPS closing in Salmon Arm

JUL 11 to 17; Shuswap
First day off was to relax.  I went to Chase to bottle our wine, stopped at the Bank to deposit a refund from the Insurance and mailed a birthday card.  It is cloudy but the sun is shining through from time to time and it’s warm.
Second day off, I went to Salmon Arm to get a medical exam for my driver’s license.  It has to do with my diabetes.  Another tax grab!!!  It is sunny and warm.  It is now confirm, UPS store where our mail is delivered is closing forever so we have to look for alternative option.
Upon my return, Val went to Chase while I did some chores around here.  Almost had another disaster with overfilling the black tank while rinsing it.  GOT TO BE MORE CAREFUL!!!!

Back to work on Wednesday!  We had a deluge downpour this week.  Is this rain ever going to stop!?  We had more people come out to look at the Beaver but no offers as yet

July 1 to 10, 2016; Shuswap

JULY 1-5, 2016
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!  Busy at work, we are full!  And wouldn’t you know it, it rained on Sunday, heavy in the evening.  160 campers left and 120 came in… The holiday season has begun.
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY to all our American friends!  Our first day off and cloudy.  We went to Salmon Arm to pick up our mail, some groceries and check out prices on tires for the Beaver; the front ones are showing cracks and they are over 5 yrs old.  Drove to Salmon Arm and picked up a clothes washer from Bob.  He found it at a store for free, checked it out and called us to come pick it up as ours quit a while back.  Rain and more rain for our whole two days off!

JUL 6 to 10

I am way behind on the blog.  It has been an uneventful week except for the amount of rain we’ve had.  It feels like FALL on the Coast!  Busy at work even though the weather is not cooperating.  I feel for those camping in tents!
