Almost there!!! To Grimsby Ontario

Hi Everyone,
We left NB around 3pm on Thursday and made it to Edmundston for our first night of travel. The furkids were excellent during the drive~in their seat belts on the sofa..we were a bit concerned how Tucker woud travel because he was so little last year he wouldn't remember. Thankfully they have been wonderful little travellers..We left Edmundston Friday morning about 8am heading onward toward Ontario. Crossing Montreal and Quebec was scarier than riding shotgun outside a plane sitting on the wing...alot of construction and I think Quebec drivers assume signal lights is an option on their vehicles-and that passing you on the inside shoulder of the freeway is a god given right.

Yesterday was a long day...we drove for 11 hours and hauled into Brockville Ontario at around 7pm last evening. I was never so glad to hear the jacks descend...and the slides whine their way out. We took the kids for a brisk walk, had supper, showers and literally fell into bed. After a good nights rest we are once again on the road to Grimsby-currently on the 401 and planning on swinging off onto the 407. Thankfully the traffic today is not as bad as it was yesterday. We made a stop at a rest stop center in Trenton on the way by and met up with Rick's cousin and her husband. They had not seen each other in over 40 years~and what a great visit we had.

We hope to be in Grimsby within the next couple of hours...we will be arriving a day early but thats a good will give us a chance to clean up our rig-shine her up and plan our move into the new one on Monday.

We are planning somehow some way to meet up with Dee and Jim and Sandra and Gordon on our way back..another exciting visit to look forward to...

So until the next time~remember!!!

Home is where you park it!!
Elaine and Rick

  2. Glad you are almost at your destination. That was some monster drive - 11 hours! I hope you don't plan on doing too many of those.

  3. Not sure if we'll get right into Smith falls Sandra but we'll figure something out to meet close by somewhere....Rick I have assured my Rick that those 11 hour days have come to an end....too hard on this old gal...:) glad we're here with a day to spare now...
