Mon. Jan. 30, Things are quieting down

Thanks for joining us in our journey of North America 
in our Holiday Rambler, since August 2006 

 Where are we Today ?

        Beautiful blue skies with a few fluffy clouds added just for fun. Well yesterday was the last day of the RV show and it doesn't take long for people to leave town. After morning coffees and computing I took a bike ride thru the area of the Big Tent and most all of the vendors are completely gone, the tent and parking lots  empty. A huge change from the bumper to bumper traffic and crowds of people for the last week. Not much traffic on the roads, Rice Ranch camping across the road is emptying out, even a lot of our neighbours have gone.  We have a huge campsite again!

       After lunch we took a drive to visit Norm and Connie, a couple from Eastern Ontario we met our first winter here in the desert. They live in town for the winter on a lot with their trailer, full hookups and lotsa space. They now leave their trailer here all year, fly down in the fall hile he pursues his of hobby of buying a few interesting California vehicles to putter around with and drive back home.
After a few hours of chatting and a very nice visit, getting up to date we headed back home to read for a bit before supper.

        We just set up our chairs when an rver came made a beeline across the dirt to see us. He introduces himself as John from Salmon Arm BC, a blogger himself, he has been following the Bayfield Bunch for quite a while and saw our picture on their sunday posting after our visit there and recognized us. So just had to stop by and chat for a bit, small world.

        I climbed on the roof to take a couple pictures of the space we have here and then fired up our Weber and fry daddy for a feast of hot wings, homemade fries, with veggies and dip, another craving satisfied.
        Now to chat and read for a bit, a couple minutes of tv and call it another fun day!

  1. Nice '72 Ranchero! We loved our Ranchero when we had it, ours was a '76. We were looking at one in Toronto to buy last summer, to replace the '63 Ford Galaxie, but didn't buy it in the end. Still looking!

  2. Lou:

    This one will be for sale when they get it back to Ontario in the spring. Some TLC and you would have nice vehicle.

  3. Where do they all go, the vendors I mean? there are only so many big shows!

  4. Contessa:

    They god back to their businesses, swap meets, flea markets etc....


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
