“On the Road Again” finally, it seems like a very long time since we have been on the road and we are looking forward to new adventures.

Yesterday we left Waterloo and headed for Can-Am RV in London to have them look at our door which had started to crack around one of the hinges (NOT GOOD!!). To make a long story short they put our trailer in the shop and started to reinforce the door – at 5:30 they came out to say it was about 80% done and they would finish in the morning – okay, this is not what we were expecting but the repair has to be done. Fortunately it is no problem to spend a night there in a RV so they put our trailer out in front for us to stay in with promises they would be there at 8:30 a.m. to put it back in the shop to finish the job. We decided a final dinner at Swiss Chalet before crossing the border would be in order so off we went for dinner, then had a quiet evening at home.

When we arrived at Can-Am we were informed that our friends Marion & George had been there and had waited for a while in hopes of seeing us but had left about 5 minutes before we arrived. They were heading for Frankenmuth for a couple of days on their way to Texas – darn, we were really sorry we missed them.

This morning, good to their word, at 8:30 they hauled our trailer back into the shop to finish work on the door – sure looks good again. By the time they finished and we were ready to head out It was 12:00 – a lot later than we had anticipated. Anyways, we headed out with a bit of sun and a temp of 8C (46F) with destination unknown. Crossing the border was a slow, painful process but we finally got across and ended up getting to a park just south of Auburn IN which we know is open year round (it used to be a KOA but they saw the light and it is now something else!!). The weather was good most of the way but about the time we crossed into Indiana the rain started, oh well, it could have rained all day

As we pulled into the park about 6 p.m. we could see an Airstream, what, could it be Marion & George? Sure enough it was, they decided to leave Frankenmuth in early afternoon and had arrived about 45 minutes before us – I think they were quite surprised when I knocked on their door. I enjoyed a glass of wine and visit with them while John got us set up then he came over and we had a good chin wag before heading home to make some dinner. We were really glad that we ended up connecting with them for a quick visit and will keep in touch over the winter.

It is now bed time and we are being lulled by the rain on the roof - sure do hope it quits before we head out tomorrow as we don’t mind the rain during the night but would prefer a dry day to drive. Oh well, I guess we get what we get!! Hopefully tomorrow will present some photo opportunities, there sure weren’t any today.

And so ends another great gift of a day – stay tuned for tomorrow’s adventures.
