Can you go ‘home again?’

 

The final trip to Monck Park for the year was done this past weekend..

We had one last ‘thing’ we had to do..that was bring our ‘white box’ , home again..

We arrived just after 7 pm on Friday night..

We had an impromptu get together with our fellow PFO’s..wine and snacks and lots of laughs..

We were a tad noisy and if we had been regular campers we would have been in ‘big trouble’…

Bright and early on Saturday morning we were hooked up and ready to roll..

It was time to vacate our ‘home spot’..we have been here long enough..

the sun was just coming up..

..the gatehouse was ‘quiet’..

..we took it slow along the route  out of the park..there are many bumps and cattle-guards along the way..no need to rattle anything loose in the trailer..

..up Hamilton Hill..heading towards the town of Princeton..

and before long we stopped at the rest area along 5A..

..we stopped in Princeton for a quick breakfast and within an hour or so we were pulling into our ‘home base’..Keremeos..

I guess you can go ‘home again?’..

..unhooked and settled in within an hour or so..

Next task on the agenda was to get the Satellite dish hooked up..

It took a bit of adjusting but finally we got a signal..

Doug was beginning to wonder if he would ever hit that ‘darn thing’!

..our view is the same..

just a few grapes on the vine..

Our route this weekend was a mere 776 kilometers..seemed more like 900 miles..
