‘Wood’nt’ you know it..the gangs all here!

 

Our 15 day stay in Keremeos came to an end on March 27th..time to move on and get those wheels rolling on the white box!

All hooked and ready to roll..one final light check..

and our spot is vacant..it looks so empty?

Maybe Ron and Karen should rent it out until we come back in October?

..right on schedule..

with the hugs and love you’s..see you in  a few months  out of the way..It was time to venture down the highway towards our next stop..only 175 kilometers to go!

the boys all settled in the back seat..the poor kitty was not too pleased for a while!..Tucker even got annoyed at him and barked at him!.. it was so funny!

within two hours we were in sight of the city  of Merritt..only one more hill in our way..

..one stop to get the ‘keys to the kingdom’..and only another 20 minutes on Highway 5A..

IMG_4181

.our home for the next six months..looks a bit familar..

IMG_4182

one yellow gate in our way..

IMG_4183

..before long we were backed into our same spot as last year and set up..

IMG_4187

We were all by ourselves with only the ‘wild animals’ for company for a few days..

The campground is so empty!

IMG_4196

up the hill into the compound..

now Steve has turn this rig around!..the audience that did some directing?

IMG_4195

He only has to back that rig into this skinny little spot!

..our first evening ended with happy hour and a pot luck dinner..one of many, we hope over the next few months!

..the last day of March dawned with sun and wind..

The new ‘arrivals’ both made trips into town for laundry and shopping..leaving us to our own devices yet again..

We kept ourselves busy..IMG_4201

..we earned our keep doing some manual labour..only 10 pallets of firewood moved and restacked..

IMG_4200IMG_4202IMG_4203

..now Steve and Dianne can see out the window!

..so now that the gang is all here..stay tuned for more ..there will be many a tale  to tell as the  PFO’s of Monck Park!
