Thoughts about The Canadian Maritimes (date unknown)
At some point we would like to tour the Canadian Maritimes…. but how to do it? This is a preliminary thought-plan…
April 2015 through August 2015????
Once we leave San Benito in March ’15 we aren’t sure which direction we want to go. We’re thinking about a month (May) in San Diego followed by something like this…. might be too many miles.
April ’15 – between San Benito and San Diego?
As of October 2014
We are committed to spend December through March at Palmdale RV park / San Benito TX
As of Late September — talking plans only.
We pick up our daughter in NOLA for a couple night stay at Bayou Segnette, three nights at Grand Isle State Park, and then overland to Galveston/Houston for a few days with family. After Kathryn flies home we’ll work our way south towards Brownsville.
As of Mid September we’re looking like this:
Two separate two week stays (+/-) at Corps properties in MS followed by a few days at Bayou Segnette near New Orleans
Two weeks on the boards near Shelbyville, IL followed by 2 weeks South of Memphis at a Corps of Engineers location
A few days in the La Crosse area, followed by two weeks at Bong State Recreation Area while we take care of business in Milwaukee. Leaving SE Wisconsin around the middle of the month we plan on stopping at Thomson Causeway in Thomson IL
We had our solar installation done at the beginning of the month. We spent a few days with Peg’s brother and SIL in Lake Tahoe ( auto trip) and then we had repairs done to our Norcold refrigerator in Junction City. We headed home to Wisconsin and arrived in La Crosse just before the Labor Day Holiday.
As our departure from ODNRA (Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area / Siuslaw National Forest) nears we’re heading back to the Midwest for an annual checkup with our doctors. We’ll be taking some Northern route back home. Thence towards the Gulf Coast for the winter.
We are anticipating a trip to the Canadian Maritime provinces — but whether we can afford to do it 2015 or 2016 has yet to be seen.
We have been on the Forest since October 2013. We arrived here to do caretaking work for the USFS and after two months we moved into a different position, as Volunteer Volunteer Coordinators. We will be ending that gig about the 24th of July, 2014 and moving on.
As of June 7, 2013 we are property-less but not homeless. One of the few things we planned on was that we would spend this first summer close to Milwaukee. The stress of house selling and some family issues suggested that it would be good to:
- give ourselves some time to decompress
- hang around to get a September/October annual physical instead of having to return mid-winter
- wait to see if the our daughter and son-in-law got their zoning petition so we could change addresses yet again.
The calendar shows our timeline. The map and explanations below are for the geographically challenged among us (including Peg).
