(Dec. 11, 2018) — It started off with an unfriendly dog lose on the property. It turns out that he belonged to the owner of the property. There are actually four dogs here and we hadn’t seen any of them out of their cages until this fellow was lose.
Travel With Kevin and Ruth
(Dec. 6, 2018) — The group really enjoyed our stay with Chris and Juan at Campestre Monte Sur. But, it was time to move on! So yesterday we headed out right on time with our 9:00am departure towards Matehuala.
(Nov. 29, 2018) — And holy cow, that was a lot of driving over the last five weeks! I love driving, but even I am due for a break. In fact, we purposely drove a few extra miles the last couple of days in order to get to the Mission West RV Resort a little early so we could stay in one spot for a while!
(Nov. 28, 2018) — We hit the road at a decent hour yesterday, not sure of how far we would make it. With a full fresh water tank, and empty waste holding tanks we said a silent thank you to the town of Jal for the totally free RV sites at Jal City Park and we headed out, making our way southeast into Texas.
(Nov. 21, 2018) — The entire last three weeks could have easily taken us three months. There has been so much that is worth seeing and doing, and we’ve been skipping most of it. But we’re on a deadline, so we’re trying to see the highlights, and we’re doing the best we can under the circumstances. But there is so much more.
(Nov. 19, 2018) — We’re at Petrified Forest National Park as I write this, and there is a lot more to see and do here than we thought there might be. More on that tomorrow!
(Nov. 12, 2018) — Most of you will have heard of the devastation of the town of Paradise, California. We were supposed to be going right by there, but the main highway was closed due to the fires. So we altered our route to head across the mountains to Reno, Nevada.
(Nov. 8, 2018) — We have to be in Mission, Texas around the 28th of this month. That means, we’re trying to do at least 100 miles (160 kms) a day on average. And even at that, we know there will have to be some longer days because we will want to have some rest days too!
(Nov. 2, 2018) — It rained all day. And we’re getting pretty tired of it. But, we keep smiling because we know that it’s a pretty safe bet we won’t be seeing much rain during our upcoming four month trip to Mexico.
(Oct. 31, 2018) — When we arrived here in Forks, Washington Sherman was sputtering. There was a definite misfiring in the engine. We were still mobile… but you could tell something was not right.
(Oct. 30, 2018) — On the way back, we noticed a laundromat in the building right next door to where we had been parked the last two days. No idea why we hadn’t noticed it before, but Ruth went over and got a load of laundry done while I was changing the plug wire.
(Oct. 26, 2018) — One of the things we wanted to see here on the Olympic Peninsula was Cape Flattery… the furthest northwest point on mainland U.S.A.
(Oct. 24, 2018) — Well, our time here in Southwest British Columbia is up! We’re back on the road as of today, and heading across the border into the state of Washington. We’re going to stay with friends in Bellingham for a night. I made our ferry reservation for Sunday after lunch to get across to the Olympic Peninsula from south of Bellingham.
(Oct. 23, 2018) — Nice day here in southwestern British Columbia. Mostly clear skies, a little hazy, no wind, and highs of about 18C (65F). Not too shabby at all for mid October.
(Oct. 19, 2018) — We decided to take the back route, which we would probably do again despite the fact the it took about two hours longer than if we had taken the main highway. Really nice scenery, and not much traffic.
(Oct. 2, 2018) — We had a late breakfast with Ruth’s family in Guelph yesterday morning. Didn’t get any photos. Just a greasy spoon breakfast, but we left with our stomachs full and we didn’t need any lunch.
(Sept. 10, 2018) — Yesterday morning, we did a nice bike ride along the Similkameen River. It’s an old railway line that’s been turned into a horse/walk/bike trail.
(April 27, 2018) — Up early, and our Verizon cellular internet ran out and I’m not going to renew it because we’re only six more days in the United States. If the price was reasonable, I would… but at $35 USD for 2 GB of data, they can keep it!
(April 20, 2018) — The first day they did the transmission service, tightened the power steering belt, installed new front wheel bearings, and new front brake pads. The front pads weren’t terrible, but they had the wheels off anyhow so I figured why wait until they are terrible.
(April 11, 2018) — We weren’t in a rush to leave Garner State Park, but we left our site at about 9:00am to drive through the park and down to the store where the laundromat is located. Haven’t done any laundry since March 29th in Mazatlan.
