We are finally “On the Road Again” and it is nice to be heading south, enough of this cold weather!!

Yesterday we went from Green Acre Park in Waterloo, where we had been for the last 2-1/2 weeks, to Can-Am in London. Our toilet was leaking so we wanted to get that fixed and we needed a couple of new things (girls talk for I don’t know what it was we needed!) for the Hensley Hitch. We spent the night there so we could head out early this morning.

The sun was shining when we left London but before Sarnia we had a good rain mixed with a bit of snow – YIKES, let’s get outta here! The bridge plaza in Port Huron was a zoo and there were even a couple of idiots who had got in the wrong lane so were going the wrong way, then trying to cut into another lane – scary when you have a 35’ trailer behind you. We probably waited about ½ hour & it was our turn with Mr. Customs – we hit a really nice fellow and were through in no time, thank you very much sir.

The rest of the day was mainly overcast, with a few sunny breaks, and we saw a high of 40F (5C) at one point near the Michigan/Indiana border but most of the day the temperature was around 35-37F (2-3C) so a pretty chilly day.

There were lots of dead deer on the highway, at one interchange there were 5 of the poor things and I saw one running along the side of the road just before Indy, sure glad when he turned away from the road!

We are at Fireside Resort in Auburn, IN for the night, it is a former KOA and is open year round so we have been here many times coming and going as it is a good shot from here to Ontario. As usual the wi-fi isn’t working so I will try again in the morning and get this posted should the wi-fi be working.

And so ends a great gift of a day and we look forward to another good tomorrow.
