We were not too happy about being back in the cooler and wet Canadian weather. If we had a choice, we would have stayed in the warm weather further south in the US (Texas/Arizona/Utah) for much longer, however, we had to get the RV back to Canada to license and register it, so here we … Continue reading Week 43 – Back on the Road – Where To Go Next?
One of the aspects of living a nomadic lifestyle for the past nine months was that we had only seen friends and family from back home a handful of times.

Unfortunately for him, this visit … Continue reading Week 38 – Houston, We Have a Problem
