Where are we today ?
Up again early this morning, pack up our coach, hooked up our toad and head off thru the country side to Bayfield Ontario shortly after 8 am. Stopped by the Stratford sewage plant to dump our sewage (it's free here) then north for a while to Seaforth Ontario.
Left turn and head towards Bayfield to Stormrunner Rv a very nice ma and pa operation recommended by Al of the Bayfield Bunch. We were not disappointed at all with the service Diane and Harry are great honest people as well as RV'ers. Very friendly people and accomadating for us.
Of course it was a travel day and rained all the way there. A real yukky day for sure, rain drizzle, overcast. We had checked with Al (The Bayfieled Bunch) to see if we could drop by if we had time today, not sure how long we would be in the area. Now when close to the American border we shut down our internet in the summer as we have only a Canadian plan (saves us big bucks in the summer) so could not contact anyone while there.
They got to work pretty quick on our slide and soon found the problem. A cracked casing for the gearbox motor on our slide. Sheared bolts and twisted brackets. They made some minor temporary repairs and recommended we go to a Holiday Rambler dealer, purchase the proper part and have them install it. Yes they could do it but probably more expensive than us going to a Holiday Rambler dealer that has experinece with these slides and access to the parts (hopefully!) At least they were honest about it.
So still raining and we did not disconnect our car to visit Al, ( we were so close too!) we decided just to head back to Plattsville (in the rain) for a few more days. Gonna drop by and see Ma tomorrow, she is back home again gotta make some adjustments to her computer.

Back in Plattsville late afternoon, still a light rain. Got set up again, its so nice and peaceful here! Visited with our hosts for a short while then whipped up a tasty supper.
|so quiet here|
Supper tonight is an open faced hot pork sandwich, with gravy, some homefried potatoes with onions and peas, perfect for a nice rainy day meal.
Done eating now, we can relax after a long drive to nowhere but did get some issues resolved. At least we now know the problem, Thanks to Al and the friendly people at Stormrunner rv in Bayfield.
Glad that you could drop by today.
