Yeah, work.. that nasty four-letter word. Plus I have the added responsibility of a very elderly mother. That's okay, I'm grateful I still have her. That won't always be the case.

Hmm Lets see Work, Vacation Time though I have more then enough getting it is the problem living in a state that trying to get south on a Friday or north on a Sunday is an all day event!! :{ But since the trailer can be used in the colder months I am hoping for more use before and after the summer folks do not interfere with my moving around.

Not much! I just totaled the mileage on the trailer & over the last 3 1/2 years the 17B has gone 54,963.2 miles & around 615 days on the road. Retirement is Wonderful!

Guess I can put up with working for another 4 1/2 years
Looks like we are both on the same time table to retirement I just hope they don't change the rules before I get to the finish line.

What's keeping us from camping? Finally, nothing.

We pick up our trailer at ETI on Friday of next week, then head (slowly--we're rookies) across the Crowsnest Highway to Waterton Lakes NP where we will stay for at least a week. From there, we will monitor weather forecasts from Montana and Idaho right down to Utah, then decide where to go next. Before the snow starts to fall on the mountain passes, we'll head to the Oregon coast, then make our way back up to BC.

Steep learning curve ahead, but that's what keeps the old neurons firing. We welcome any suggestions you might have for must-see attractions, great hikes and bike rides, and exceptional campgrounds along the loop we plan to make.
Brent and Cheryl.
