On The Road Tomorrow

Tomorrow morning we will hit the road in the Honda. We are about two and a half hours from the ferry to Horseshoe Bay, an hour and a half on the ferry and then about four and a half or five hours to Oliver. It would be nice to get there by five so we can pick up the motorhome but that is not likely so we will rent a room from our friend Rick at the Maple Leaf Motel and RV Park. Rick is a retired RCMP officer who was stationed in the Queen Charlotte Islands while we were in Terrace back in the late Seventies and early Eighties. He is now semi-retired in Oliver where he plays at Real Estate and running his motel and RV park. He is a great guy and although we disagree on Politics, we have a love of single malt scotch in common. His RV park is unique in that there are no rules except one: use common sense. Rick says he spent his whole career enforcing rules and is not about to ruin his retirement by continuing to do the same thing.

The microwave convection oven was delivered to the repair shop in Okanagan Falls on Friday afternoon and Al at Advance RV Repair says he will get it installed Monday. On Tuesday we will head across the Rocky Mountains, spending one night somewhere along the way and arrive in Edmonton on Wednesday. We will park in front of my brothers house and then pick up my sister at the Edmonton airport on Thursday. It will be a pretty hectic few days and I don't know when I will be able to post next but I will take photos and report when I can!


  1. Rick sounds like a pretty cool guy; there really are too many rules so someone who cuts them down to the minimum has my vote. Have a great trip.
