Happy Canada Day and moving on down the road.

Where are we today ?
      When we checked in here for two weeks did not realize that we were leaving here on Canada Day, because it was Tuesday. Oh well most of the people here had a long weekend already and we just have to travel to Plattsville, to hang out for a few days. And get some repairs done to our coach. Canada is 147 years old today! I remember the 100th birthday celebration for Expo 67 in Montreal. I was there! That was in another life.
Happy Canada Day
      We up early as usual, got computing, coffees and walkabouts done. Showers and secure the coach by 8:30 am.
nice sunrise
      Then across the road to the reservation (Terry's Gas Bar) fill up the coach and car 130 litres only 124.9 (thats $4.92 a US gallon) saving at least 10 cents a liter.
not our pumps we Non Native
     Then heading on down the road, pretty quiet today for being a holiday, but still early.
nice country drive
not much traffic in Bridgenorth yet either
hopped on hwy 401 and just flew through Toronto, no slow downs at all
170 miles today
        We stopped at a picnic area for bite to eat and arrived in Plattsvillle by 1pm a really good travel day. Only a bit of heavy rain for a few minutes coming through Toronto.
Plattsville main street , pretty quiet
Around the corner and down River Road to "Camp Awesome"
by 1:30 all set up
     Suzie went to pick up our mail and I got our generator running, still a fuel issue, but think we have figured some things out. 
      Did get to read for a while in the shade before time to fire up our Weber Q and grill a couple Apple cinnamon Sausage we picked up in Missouri at Swiss meat and sausage.
         Added these to a tasty salad and that really hit the spot. On another hot humid day.
        That was another fun day and helps us scratch that hitch itch we have. Plan on being here a few days, visit a few people and get some work done on our coach. Then plan is to get back to Rock Glen Resort for a week or two.
        Glad you could follow along with us and hope you enjoyed Canada Day to. Speaking of which listening to our Sirius Satellite radio broad casting from the USA they were mentioning this quite frequently and receiving phone calls from people all over Canada.

  5. I filled up today at .95 a liter USD here in Kansas city... $3.56 a gallon... For us dumb US guys, please explain why Canadian Indians don't have to pay gas taxes... Don't they drive on the same roads that you do....? And is it possible that you have a small fuel filter or an obstruction on the genny fuel tube into the bigger gas tank.... I assume that it would be above the bottom of the tank so you cant burn the last few gallons of gas and not get the truck engine started...

    1. Thats another reason why we enjoy travelling in the USA great fuel prices. Don't understand the Indian things but will take advantage of any discounts I can get.
      There is two fuel filters and both are new.
      Only draw gas until 1/4 tank.

  8. Happy Canada Day to you both. We live in a great country. Gas here in Kelowna, BC is 143.9/litre. Lots of pennies.

  9. I don't know George, but you may have the same problem on the Onan as I did. I went through 3 fuel pumps an' on the last one before I hook up the fuel line....I blowed through the dad gum thing back to the tank. Boy howdy let me tell ya, that was one hard blow. The fuel line is rubber, so's I got to think'n a kink in the line. I cut all the wire ties holding it in place....blowed through it again. Easy this time. Somebody had pull one them wire ties so tight it wouldn't let fuel go through. I fix that right up.....new loose wire ties. Good luck.

    1. Oh, by the way, there are 2 fuel filters. One before the pump an' one at the carb.

    2. Thanks Billy Bob will be checking that out. Both fuel filters are new so they should be good. Not getting the fuel to the first one.
