About Me

Lee Creek, North Shuswap near Chase, B.C, Canada
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 is now a Gated Community 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!

September 8 to 18, 2016; Motorhome is SOLD!

SEPT 8 to 18; Work BBQ; CT-Scan; Chilliwack; Repairs & sell of our Beaver Monterey

Today, Thursday, was our Park Employee Appreciation Day.  Val got home at 3:45 pm, showered and changed into regular clothing then at 5 pm, we drove to the Park into the “group site area” where we had steak, baked potatoe, salad and all you can drink however everyone was reasonable in their consumption.  We sat around the fire and had a great time.  There were about 20 people including guests.  It lasted till dark then everyone called it quit.  We had a good time and were glad to have gone.
Earlier in the day, I began cleaning out junk out of the shed, stuff that I have hung on but have not used in years.
Friday morning, I was up with Val at 6 am and left for Salmon Arm to have a CT Scan on my nose once again.  I have a specialist appointment in October in Vernon.  The rest of the day was doing chores around the yard.  The sun was out in the morning but that soon disappeared!
We had a couple come back to look at the Beaver for a second time.  This time they went through stem to stern, top to bottom literally. (He crawled under the Motorhome).  After some discussion, we agreed on a price but first I have to repair a panel underneath and replace the back-up which quit on me a week ago.  I also have to repair the leaky storage bin (replace the seal) and once this is all done, our little home for the last 3 years will be gone!  Boo hoo!  A sad day but yet happy that the uncertainty is over.  I have an appointment with the shop on Thursday.  Now we have to look for a temporary place until our plans are all finalized i.e.; buying a place to live.
Monday the 12th, we went to Chilliwack overnight to see our great grand-daughter, Elli-Bun (3 months old now) and the kids.  It was a short but lovely visit.  Eliana sure smiles a lot.  We came back Tuesday after stopping at Super Store for some groceries.  Val was back to work on Wednesday and I woke up being dizzy and a feeling of stomach sickness.  I felt lousy all day!??
On Thursday, I took the Beaver to TRI-CROWN to have the back-up camera fix, the door panel repaired, the under carriage cover repaired and the leaky lockers.  I have to go back for the body work and the camera (on order) on the 26th.
Sunday the 18th, Ron and his wife came out once again and this time we took the Beaver out for a drive; to Jade Mtn to take on some fuel and back.  He drove it this time.  Our Beaver is SOLD!!!  We got a deposit on it and the delivery date is October 1!  Mix emotions!!!  Now we have to pack.  I called Ed& Judy and rented their place for a month.
A new adventure begins.

Congratulations on selling the Beaver. Does this mean an end to your RVing travels? I guess I'll have to read through your older posts to see what's going on. Take care and God bless you both.
