Saskatoon once again

A lot has happened in the last few weeks but I've had no reasonable access to the internet so was not able to post.

We finished up at the campground in Bow Valley and dropped the RV off in Red Deer for some warranty work. We are now in Saskatoon once again visiting family before heading out West to Salt Spring Island for our newest adventure.

Pretty excited to get out there as you might imagine.

We sent a letter to the bank re: house issues but have not heard anything back as yet. So nothing new to report on that.

For those who know: Brad won his court case he's been waiting on the decision about for the last 20 months or so. He sent a message to the other side inquiring if they still wish to continue - I've not a doubt that they will - which is okay by me because they just keep digging themselves deeper every time and my shopping spree gets bigger and better :D

He helped a friend with an employment issue he was having and is now assisting my youngest good son with a custody issue. Always something it seems.

I understand that our new campground on Salt Spring has really good internet so there should be no further issues with posting once we get out there.

Meanwhile, we are looking around for a different RV. Something more suitable to our new way of RVing - ie more stationary. You will recall we bought this one because we planned to boondock and move around a lot and while we love it and I personally think we can just swap out the L-shaped dinette for theatre seats, His Lordship would prefer something a little more like an apartment than a camper. However, we do not know what kind of room we will have in our new spot so do not want to make any change until after we get west.

I am looking around now to find layouts that work so that when we are ready we just need to find one of whatever it is. The layout is the most important aspect so not decided on TT, 5th wheel or other. Though outside storage is also a thing, we are still considering a TT. For the right layout we would make concessions on outside storage since we do not have a lot of stuff there now. We did find a 2017 Bounder 35K that we both loved but the reviews are not great...

Anyway, sorry to be gone so long but once we're settled the posts should be more regular.

Sooooo excited.

  1. Nice to hear things are finally settling down for you two. I think you will find island life quite restful although damp through the winte, but at least you don't have to shovel it. We are sure finding it nice and quiet here in Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island.

  2. Finding the perfect Rv is a search, we found ours 12 years ago and still love it. Now 20 years old and going strong. Good luck.

    1. We love ours also and it is perfect for what we had intended to be doing, but as plans change the RV must too I suppose.

  3. I wondered where you've been. Where is that island? When do you leave for your spot in the southwest?

    1. Oh FG, did you miss the memo? We are not going south this year. The site we purchased is for sale, though we may well buy another once things down there stabilize we are not interested in being in the midst of all that is going on down there at present.

      Salt Spring island is just East of Duncan (off Vancouver Island). We expect to pick up the RV on Friday and hope to be on Salt Spring Island sometime over the weekend.

  4. If you plan to keep moving around you already have the best RV going. If you plan on setting up Homesteading for short periods of time Trailers are better. A consideration since you just got the Jeep is a Travel trailer. 5th Wheels will have you looking for a new Tow Vehicle as well.
    Glad you are back. It's not unusual for Bloggers to take a break.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. The Jeep won’t pull the TTs we’re looking at so a truck will be needed regardless. Except in another Class A situation. Undecided as yet.

  5. Woo Hoo!! Sooo glad to hear about the court case!! Great news!

    We've been wondering what happened to you, but figured life just got busy etc.

    Looking forward to hearing all about your ventures on Salt Spring Island.

    1. How is it that we've become so dependent on the Internet in what seems like just a few years?! Just so lost without it. Anyway, good to hear from you and look forward to your visit on SSI soon :D

  6. May I suggest looking at Grand Design TT or Fifth wheels. The Imagine travel trailer or their Solitude 5th wheel. The TT may be too small for you but the 5th wheels are really nice. Good luck with your new adventures.
