A stop in Toronto on the way home

Having some kids and grand kids living in Israel and one in Toronto led us to this simple solution , each summer on the way to collect the Rig from the storage place we stop for a few days in Toronto to see the kid and sniff the grand kids, at the end of the trip (usually after 4 months )we fly from where we stored the rig to Toronto before heading home.

It worked perfectly for the last 17 years and gives us the opportunity to do our summer RV trips each year AND see our Canadian family twice a year.

So here we are in Toronto enjoying the time with our Canadian family just before heading home.


Seems they are growing so fast , we went with them to their weekly “Gym” visit and watched the future athliets  at work..


Celebrated Noam's birthday , the guy is 3 years old and so clever...he speaks half a sentence in Hebrew and the other half in English, sometimes it is so funny.

He had a celebration in the kindergarten and one for the family and friends.P1050838


He was more shy in the kindergarten where all the attention was focused on him , but boy see him in the family birthday he was just like fire..



Autumn in Ontario is always a symphony of colors,clear skies and cold weather so we manged to do some out side walks some with the gang and some alone when they are in the kindergarten from 9am till 5pm .

That’s it my friends we completed our 17th RV summer trip leaving as usual the cheery on the cake for the end....

Can't end this post without mentioning the Pittsburgh massacre ,

End of our 17th RV trip

It is hard to believe that we are ending our 17th RV summer trip, there is a saying “when you are doing what you like,time fly's” , OK got it -but so fast...

This year we started from Spokane WA, where we left the rig at the end of 2017 summer trip, and it was a year that our 4th granddaughter turned 12 ,so following our family tradition we took her with us for one month as we did with the grand-kids before her .


Each year we choose 1-2 States and explore it thoroughly, hiking to view points and waterfalls,driving scenic routes,attending culture and musical events and meeting people, this year it was mainly Idaho , it is not only a potato State ..it has beautiful nature,mountains,lakes,waterfalls ,exactly our cup of tea, see previous posts .

As we “covered” over the 17 years Canada and most of the US we decided to explore Texas in 2019, so we looked to end the trip near an International Airport close to North Texas.

In 2014 we where invited by Lonnie & Hazel to visit them in Oklahoma, Lonnie is the most decorated Comanche in the US Air Force and we were very glad to make it happen.


So I contacted Lonnie that was glad to meet us again and store the rig for us during the winter, this way we will see each other again in summer 2019.


We made our way from Idaho to Oklahoma slowly visiting old friends and new ones we made in Colorado and New Mexico enjoying the freedom ,nature and friendship.

In Boulder Colorado we celebrated our Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) with family, in New Mexico we meet again with Googie after 12 years , it was amazing.

During our 5 day stay in Oklahoma getting the rig ready for the winter we also managed to attend Kiowa Black Leggings Warrior Society Ceremony, a beautiful,colorful and stronge performance of the tribe.


I got a permission from the Chief to take pictures but no videos.


We are very grateful to our friends that we meet along this long journey they all enriched our lives, some by helping,

some by listening and some by just being there to share time with us.

See Ya all in our 2019 Summer RV trip not before we fly to visit another exotic place during the early 2019 (without the trailer), life is too short and everyday that passes NEVER comes back.

Amarillo Texas

It was to much a drive from Datil N.M to the storage place in Anadarko Oklahoma ,having the time we divided the stretch every 300 Miles , our fist stop was in Vaughn N.M ,a small deserted village with few motels and C.G , we were quite surprised that the full price for one night was $40 , we payed only $20 for one night with 50% discount being Passport America members, no bathrooms but with full hook ups and Wifi.

We did not disconnect the truck and on the next morning chose to stop at Amarillo TX for 2 nights.

Years ago we hiked in the Palo Duro Canyon S.P https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/palo-duro-canyon and therefore looked to visit other attractions .

In the next morning we drove to the Historic 66 Hwy in down town Amarillo to watch the Annual Motorcycle Rally .


After celebrating Xmass in September with some bikers from Florida we headed to see a field of Cadillac's buried in the ground.... it was colorful and made me think -what came into the head of the guy that actually took a number of Cadillacs ,dug holes in the ground and buried them one next to the other...but it was very unusual and I like unusual..


By now we became hungry and what is a better place to go than the Big Texan Steak Ranch and Brewery...it is a huge establishment ,motel,restaurant,playground where they offer 72 once steak for FREE is one person can eat it in an hour... I did not go for it just did not want to get used to eat like that....


Not bad for one day….
