We left Monroe, Michigan on Sunday morning just before 830AM. After stopping for gas first thing we were on our way. We stopped once for Jackson to go potty and that was it. We rolled up into our driveway just past 130PM. It was a good drive, no rain, traffic was great. The stop at the border hardly was that. The fellow asked us when we had left Canada, (November 27) how many people on board (2 people, 1 cat, 1 dog) any liquor (bottle of wine in the fridge) and we got a Have a good day. Thanks mate, Ken said and we were through. Gotta love those Canadians, a lot easier coming home that’s for sure.
At first I was just going to empty the contents of the fridge and do the other stuff another day, but once we got going just couldn’t seem to stop. Took us around 4 hours to empty the rig. I have a process, fill a huge bag, bring it in and put that bag away before loading up again. Works well for us as there isn’t tons of stuff hanging around then it’s a ‘where do I start’ moment. I had laundry up to the yinyang. Thank goodness I have those huge front loaders.
Now all that is left is to give it a good cleaning and we can drive it over to the storage lot. Tonight it’s going to be cold and I really don’t want to winterize again, so I’m going to put heat lamps in the water bins and turn the gas furnace on low.
Sure is just wonderful to be home. Jackson just about went out of his mind and Arthur acted like he’d never left. Fun to get away but there really is ‘no place like home’.
Till later then…take care.
