First impressions of Waterloo

We have been here nearly a week now, and we are starting to feel at home and "plugged in" to the community. So it's time for a brief posting about my first impressions of this area.

Easiest border crossing ever!

Border crossings always come with a bit of anxiety - whether heading in or out of the country. Most of the time, we don't run into any trouble, but the occasional time, we are pulled over and searched. Even with a search, it's not usually a problem - but I always worry. Everybody seems to have had a nightmare crossing at some point in their RVing career.

Gilmore Auto Museum

The Gilmore Automobile Museum near Kalamazoo, Michigan is the largest car museum in the world and is somewhat of a pilgrimage location for many car history fans. We just happened to be driving past the area on our way from Elkhart to Sarnia. For any of you that know Carl, he has a deep-seated love for old cars and so we decided to spend a couple of days there. That's right, a couple of days. This ain't no tiny museum!

Fridge fixed!

Our few days in Elkhart were successful! Hurrah!

The techs at MasterTech RV were on time, on schedule and efficient. They pulled the fridge out to get at the rattling fans, to discover that a piece of plastic was brushing up against the top of the fan housing, causing the racket that we have been hearing for a couple of months now. A couple of zap straps fixed that. They also tested the fridge and the fan motors and reassembled it all. Three hours labour and no charge for the zap strap!

We have fridge woes, yet again. So, we have an appointment at the RV capital of the world, Elkhart, Indiana.

What should you do in Winnipeg?

We spent a lovely few days in Winnipeg, and we found that we really enjoyed the city. We stayed at Town and Country RV park on the east side of the city along the TransCanada highway. It's a pleasant park, but the wifi is non-existent, which is annoying for a blogger! $43 FHU 50A.

So what do I recommend for a few days in Winnipeg?

6 great things to see in Cypress Hills Saskatchewan

We have just spent several days exploring the south east corner of Saskatchewan, a large hilly area of a province that is known for being flat. It is a surprisingly beautiful, historic and fun area to visit.

You can see forever from the top of the hills.

A whirlwind weekend

Wow! What a weekend we had!

It was the wedding of Carl's funny, interesting and intelligent great-niece and her lovely young man, also a charming and energetic, fun guy. So this was a wonderful occasion to attend their wedding and catch up with all the relatives at the same time.

Through the magnificent Rockies

The Rocky Mountains never fail to put me into a state of awe. Could one ever get bored with driving through them? Really, the scenery is spectacular and there's a new vista around every curve in the road.
