Relocating, stop at a dump station, check out our coach at the garage and setup in Plattsville for a bit.

Where are we today ?
      Another cozy night and temps today supposed to get to 51f (10c), but don't think it ever made it, at 3 pm was 45 f but felt like 36f (2c) with the wind and the rain. But we did manage to pack up this morning, stopped at Nith River campground to dump our sewage tanks, stop by Pettigrews Garage in Plattsville. Got Dale our Mechanic to check the engine codes on our coach. Ended up just a false reading from the on board computer.

      After this, moved to our friends John and Lea's place in town. They have 5 acres here that we can park at and its very convenient when we are in the area. We have labeled this stop as Camp Awesome over the years, lotsa space, peace and very quiet here. Plus they have two dogs Molly and her huge puppy Buddy, Suzie gets her doggie fix. All set up here before the rain began so that was a bonus. We have a 15 amp connection and that is plenty, we try to use mostly solar, if and when the sun is shining.
34 kms (21miles) today 
        Chatted with Lea to catch up, for a while before she headed off to work. Then just puttered around here, reading and computing to get caught up. Inside where it is toasty warm.
         No Weber Q tonight with the wind, cold and rain. So gonna try out a one pan meal in our oven tonight. A recipe I came across and the improvised, Oven Roasted Garlic Sausage, sweet potatoes and carrots. Check out my recipe Blog on the top right corner of my sidebar for the recipe.

yummy
         Supper was very tasty, we really enjoyed it and will do it again sometime, this is a keeper for us.
         Even though it was cooler, overcast and windy, it still could be worse. Northern Ontario had a lot of snow today, something we really don't want to see. Soon we will have some wonderful warm weather. That's my prediction and if it does not happen, too bad, I can only think positive, I can't change the weather.
          Thanks for stopping in again for a peek, we do what we do best, live in our house that keeps moving around from place to place.

  1. How much do they charge you to dump? When we came home last week we stopped at a truck stop with a dump and they wanted $10.00 to dump!

    1. They charged us $15.00 to dump or we could have driven 25 miles each way to a free dump in Stratford or Woodstock. You got a pretty good deal I think. The $15.00 was cheaper than fuel to drive to the free one.

  3. You are certainly a super star with food. Whatever the situation you have a solution. I'd send you some sunshine but we had rain today so we're both out of luck.

    1. That could be a very large possibility, if it warms up.

  7. I remember you often commented about liking the heat of the SW, but I guess as a Canadians you are okay with the cooler temps as well. Your one pan dish looks delicious.

    1. We are not really ok with the cooler temps, we just don't have much choice.
      It was pretty tasty.

  8. Not much can be done to control the weather....so it is best to take it as it comes. Good weather will return, as you so rightly state.
