End of RV summer trip 2010

As all good things come to an end so is this 2010 RV summer trip.

It was an exceptional one because Yuval (our eldest grand daughter ) asked to join us for a month,only  grandparents that had this experience can fully understand  how happy we were to except her wish.

The month with her flew by so quickly but every day ,every minute was a pure joy,she became part of the “crew” helping with trailer and camping activities and in the kitchen as well,the one that benefited from this was ME, 1 Chef and one Su Chef….what else can you ask for?

Scroll down to see pictures related to Yuval in Ontario.

After dropping her off (with regret from both sides) at the airport to catch a direct flight back home, we continued to Pennsylvania,Maryland and Virginia.

Most of the time the weather was good allowing us to hike,swim ,explore and enjoy the outdoors.

We have meet friends from our previous RV trips and a friend from high school that we did not see for a whole decade…it was fun to say the least.

We also made some new friends from the RV family and enjoyed sharing stories ,interesting trip and future plans.

One of them invited us to store the rig for the winter on his property what made the end of the trip more enjoyable and easy – we thank them for all they have done for us.

As the season came to the end we found ourselves almost alone in C.G,morning were chilly and getting warm became an issue we decided to move and cross the boarder back to Canada , this time the crossing was smooth and easy I did not even step out of my truck…..

The last C.G was next to Niagara falls on the Canadian side  on a beautiful lake and nice Autumn colors,we used the stay top winterize and prepare the trailer for the winter storage.

From there we drove all the way to our friends and stored the trailer next to their house and got all the help we  needed .It was Thanksgiving evening and we were invited to share a dinner with the whole family,what a great evening it was.

Finally we left the trailer and drove with the truck to Toronto to spend time with our son and our Toronto friends,eating,hiking and catching up since our last meeting.

Close to our flight back home we dropped of the truck spending another two days there before returning to Toronto.

Hard to believe that we just ended our 9th RV summer trip ,good things past fast,but have already plans for our 10th trip….till then…bye.

From Pittsburgh to Canada

Map picture

As the Autumn came knocking on the door ,the nights became colder ,the days shorter and the RV traffic thinner,the C.G became almost deserted but we still had the desire to keep going and experience the foliage on the way back.

On the way from Pittsburgh to the Canadian boarder we have done 3 stops ,one in Mercer PA  one in Tionesta PA and one next to Jamestown NY , some of the days were rainy and some crispy clear but cold (that’s how I like it),we enjoyed every minute and took it as it came still taking short hikes to waterfalls and visiting an Apple fest in Franklin PA,rain did not stop us at all ,it is only water…

In Jamestown C.G we meet again the owner Max that was glad to see us after we camped in his C.G last year coming from NY towards the Canadian boarder, he too is closing up and moving for the winter to Florida as most of the RVer’s from the cold area.

Crossing the boarder was smooth ,we did not have even to get out of the truck although I had everything ready for the usual questions we got so much used to.

In July in a C.G we meet a great couple that lives an hour North of  Toronto , they offered us to leave our rig on their land during the winter ,we just talked with them and will on our way to their place in 2 days that will be used to do the laundry and get the staff packed and ready.

The next 2 weeks we will spend with our son in Toronto,visit friends and get presents for the grandkids .

Next year plan is already going through my head …Michigan,Indiana,Kentucky and Tennessee… I can’t wait.
