So we are in Banff. Have put the border crossing behind us. The sink doesn't leak. I read the manual on the subject of condensation and am making it my life's work to prevent it. The frig works great, but isn't getting any challenges considering it's so cold. Yesterday we were very thankful to have a small trailer. I can't believe the tiny space we had to put the trailer in Two Jack Lakeside. The site is wonderful -- on the lake, but lots of trees and a picnic table presented a challenge. However we did great.

We are figuring out the storage as we go. I miss those two shelves we eliminated due to the large frig, but we are filling the frig to the max, so you win some you lose some. The furnace works great -- and we are surprised to be using it so often. We almost never used the Airstream furnace -- this is a lot easier and quieter. Because it's so cold and raining so much we're cooking mostly inside -- another surprise -- and I like the two burner and having everything so close. I am looking forward to sunshine though -- and it's nice when there's a campground sink.

I posted pictures of folks at the Escape factory on my blog

RuthMatilskyworld.wordpress.com It's funny how little things are so important. That side to side sliding table is great for us and Terry is particularly surprised at how comfortable he is on the bench seat. We are using two queen sized bed pillows -- one on each side -- and it works well. We're putting up lots of hooks and when I have time I'll search the forum for ideas on bathroom holders for toothbrushes, etc.

We are finally slowing down -- which is good because not only are we trying to see Canada, but we're still getting used to the trailer.

New post at RuthMatilskyWorld.wordpress.com The trailer's doing fine. Still have a leak from the counter -- it's not the pipes. Seems to have gone from the stove, when we spilled bean liquid there. Solar panels started kicking in once we had a sunny spot.

That's true, Donna. When you cross into Canada you need to remember it's a sovereign foreign country, even though everything is similar -- including the language. Nobody forces you to cross, so the best policy is to be OVERLY polite and patient. So you get to the campground a few minutes later -- no biggie.
