Travel day is upon us..
time to leave the Lower Mainland and get on with this new adventure!
It is time to hook up and head on out..yes, we still had a few more days that we could have stayed in Fort Langley but we both felt that it was time..
We were sad to say goodbye to our ‘neighbours’ Mary and Kathy….but we know we will see them again..
..the boys were loaded in the truck ..
Tucker doesn’t like to share the back seat but this is the reality now..
..our next destination is one that we have been to many a time over the past few years..330 kilometers..through the Fraser Valley..up the Hope Slide Hill..our first big test for the truck with the trailer following behind..
We had stopped at the scale to weigh the trailer..6930 pounds..such a relief for me to know that we were way under our maximum..there was no stopping on the side of the road to ‘rid ourselves’ of any items!
I had visions of the scene for ‘Lucy and the Long Long trailer’ when Ricky discovers all the stuff she had stored in the trailer!
..first stop was Manning Park ..
..and a roll in the snow for Tucker..
he was happy! per usual!
about two hours later we were pulling into the driveway in Keremeos and backed into our ‘home spot’..
The view may have changed but bringing your ‘home along’ for the ride is a comforting way to travel..
..just a few of the items that made the ‘cut’ to make our rolling house a ‘home’..
..from the bears to the brooms and a few other mementos..
We are all settled in and enjoying the familiar view out the windows!
..not the end..
but a new beginning..no turning back now!
