Where are we today ?
clic on a pic to enlarge itNow to start a new summer day.We have been here about a week or so, time for us to move in down the road, we do get that hitch itch very often. No rush today we have a plan. Walkabouts town. A few groceries picked up, secure the coach and head on out after an early lunch to Stratford. Fuelled the coach, over to the Stratford sewage station for a FREE rv dump. Both our sewage tanks are full after 14 days dry camping.
Next stop Honey wood tire in Stratford. Here we are having 4 new tires installed on the rear of our coach. Mike Walsh is the contact man here and has always got us good deals on tires for our coach. Contacted him in May this spring looking for a deal on good tires for our our coach. We would like Michelin tires but at about $600.00 a tire thought that was pricey (ours are 7 years old but still in good shape). He could get us BFG tires that are made by Michelin (in France) for $325.00 CND each, but they were on back order. No rush just before the fall is good. Is good for us. He called us a couple weeks ago and the tires are in 19.5 RV tires.
The tires were in and we could have them installed today on our way to Rock Glen resort in Arkona. Good deal. I pulled in there about 1 pm and he set to work doing the manual labor. Nice to see a pro do it the right way. All done, balanced and installed by 2:15 pm . AND he gave us $50.00 for each of our old tires, Real bonus! They are 7 years old lots tread but no sidewall cracking. Mainly because we move our coach year round every week or two, do not cover them AND no tire shine stuff on them.
|excellent service and very good prices|
|here they are waiting for us|
|Mike hard at work|
|Amazing how they did this with just tire irons|

We got all this done stopped to fill our propane and arrived at Rock glen resort at 4 pm ( later than we like). It was gettng hot but we were all set up (satellite dish included ) by 5 o'clock. Time for a cold beer! Relax a bit.
|One of our favorite sites here|
Relaxing for bit then Tucker and his MUM stopped by for a visit and Suzie got her doggie fix.
A nice visit while I grilled a couple turkey burgers from Hayter's Turkey farm with cranberry and spinach. Suzie wanted nothing else for supper and was just fine with me.
|loaded my burger and was good to go|
What a great day, got stuff done, moved on down the road, and we have now have full hookups for a couple weeks. It will come in handy with the major heat wave expected here for the next week or so. With humidity will feel like 104f. Now we can turn on or AC if needed. plus we really like free camping (no overnight fees) with our membership.
Thanks once again for taking the time to stop on by.
