We've gone Rogue!!

Well, we've done it. We've gone Rogue. So far, so good although we've stayed at truck stops for the last 2 nights. Its been quite a relief just to get on the road. I'll be making more of an effort to find some back road areas for boondocking but I don't quite know how yet. I've been on Google Earth and found a couple but ... any suggestions for boondocking in Canada are welcome.

We are in Quebec at the moment and entering Ontario today, we have a meeting to attend and then we will be staying with a 'Boondockers Welcome'  couple tonight. This will be our first experience with Boondockers Welcome and Brad is a little unsure of it so I hope it goes well.

We will then be off to the Great White North of Ontario... there are a lot of campgrounds in Northern Ontario and I assume it is because of this that most possible stopping spots are designated 'no overnighting'. We noticed this when we were driving the rig home a few months ago. We will see how it goes... During our journey, once we have left a spot I will be publishing the stop on the map at the top of the blog so you just have to click the map to see options for boondocking (or staying at least).

After the last few weeks, we have really been taking time to unwind. I've seen some beautiful scenery but just couldn't bring myself to take pictures. I don't know why really, just needed time to get back to ourselves I suppose. Feeling much better now so expect to start posting pictures on Instagram and the like.

There are a few odds and ends that we want to rearrange in the rig and hope to get at that this morning before we head off through Montreal! Let the morning traffic pass is my thought, although anyone who's ever been to Montreal knows that doesn't happen...

It will be so awesome to talk to fellow RVers tonight and get some of their insight into this racket. Quite looking forward to that. They did say though that their driveway has a slight slope and after an experience we had in Nova Scotia last spring, that makes me a little nervous but we'll see how it goes. Our rig almost fell over because the jacks went too high. It was quite a fright, I must say.

Anyway, time to get His Lordship up so we can get on with it today....


  1. Congrats Katie & Brad! So happy to hear you finally made it. We're heading out this morning ourselves,finally made it to the status of "full-timers". Hope you have nothing but good roads and good luck from here on.
    As far as Montreal, we were through there about a month ago. If you take the route 30 bypass around the city, the traffic is MUCH easier. You can hook up again with route 20 on the other side of the city. Hope that helps.
    Safe travels! :) Kelley & Mike

    1. Thanks Guys, Congratulations and good luck to you both on your great adventure also. Your Blog doesn't want to refresh on my Blog List for some reason. I'll see if I can fix that and we can follow you more closely.

  2. So happy for you! You should head south! We are just three hours south of Saint Sault Marie in Michigan. :) I really, really, really hope we meet someday on the road! Dawn

    1. Eventually we will but right now we need to get to Brad's brother in British Columbia... but hooking up with you guys and The Padster is on my bucket list. :)
