What does Community mean to you?

It all started with a question my brother asked me a couple of years ago about our travelling lifestyle. But, don’t you miss feeling like part of a community?  he asked.  Not at all, I said.  Probably too quickly for his liking as he gave me that ‘look’.

What is Community?

Festivals and Swamp Cabbage!

A festival is an event celebrated by a community and centres on some characteristic of that community and its religion or cultures.
It is often marked as a local or national holiday.
Next to religion and folklore, a significant origin is agricultural. Wikipedia

There are enough festivals in most towns in the US and Canada to keep us happy all year long.  So, do we pack our wings and stilts, take our clothes off and paint our bum blue, try unidentifiable street food and circus skills, crowd-surf to the front and launch ourself into space from a giant catapult? And lose it, just for a few days? Will this be the year we finally make it to Burning Man?  Not likely!

Ontario to Florida – and stuff in between!

We left Ontario November 9th – just the day before the 1st snow flakes fell! Chuck does a great job watching the weather as the dreaded snow is what we always want to avoid. So far the weather follower has been right on! We’re headed to Riverbend RV Resort for 3 months, arriving on December 1st, but our initial travels are taking us into a rather circuitous route…

Florida bound – finally Snowbirds!

It’s surprising that we’ve been on the road since July 2014 and we only just now make it to Florida.

Our travel plans did not originally include Florida as we were heading to the Canadian west again – to personally greet the arrival of Grand Baby #9! But, as is always the case, plans can change.  Due to ‘sold-out’ RV parks in the Victoria, BC area we had to re-visit our itinerary.  My family was going to Naples for Christmas and New Years – so, we did too.

“BBB” [Back in Blog Business]!

Yes, we’re here in Florida!

The 1st time in this ‘humid & hot state’ since we bought the coach in June, 2014.  We spent Christmas and New Year’s in Naples, FL with family from Barrie, Boston, Tara & Toronto.

AND, the blog has been corrupt and unavailable all this time – until just NOW!  I finally figured out the problem – BUT, I’m not really sure what I did!
