Don't get excited...but we are!

The Oaks at Point South
Yemassee, South Carolina.

We are on our way home from a wonderful winter in Florida. Don't know why, but it seems to speed by so fast. Every year, faster and faster.

As you know in 2016 we sold our lovely Newmar Dutch Star Diesel Pusher and regretted it ever since. Well, a park model, two trucks and two travel trailers later we have decided to sell the park model, the truck and the trailer, get an A Class and go on the road again. Daft hey??

We are getting another Newmar, but a gasser this time. We figure we still have a few years of traveling left in us. If we find we have to stay in Canada for health reasons, there is an awful lot of travelling to do in our own country. So we found a 2006 Newmar Kountry Star and persuaded the dealer to take our Ford F150 EcoBoost truck and our 2015 Forest River Rockwood trailer as trade ins. This means we just have to pay a small balance on the motorhome.  We will get a solar system installed, do some renovating of the motorhome. Carpets, mirrors, ugly window treatments and the ugliest of all headboards will be going at some point.

Here is a short video of the new moho. We are excited!!

 Our Instagram is @gone.rving. Check us out. Lots of photos of our winter in Florida. Thousand Trails campgrounds and boondocking on Water Management Districts and Wildlife areas. I think we are getting this RVing stuff figured out!

Leave us a comment and please be kind.

From Kelowna and up into the Rockies via Revelstoke, BC

Up into the Rockies.
May 2nd, 2017


Hooking up and leaving Holiday Park, Kelowna.
Some last minute photos of Lake Okanagan before we head for Revelstoke.




On our way up into the Kootenay mountains we came across a place of historical significance at Craigellachie. The Last Spike was driven into the railroad at Eagle Pass. We wandered around and took some photos of the artefacts in the area of the old railroad.

Timmy leads the way (as usual)














 From Revelstoke we carried on to Glacier National Park where we had gob smacking views of the Rockies and some glaciers.

Little Ford building up the stamina to get up and over.



Glacier National Park Visitor Centre. Little Amerilite is almost dwarfed by that snow bank!
 Inside the visitor centre they had a wonderful display of the local fauna. So well done!


This is a model depicting the structures on the road to protect travellers from avalanches. 



















Michael is dwarfed by that snow bank!
 Here is some scenery around the Visitor Center.




Sorry the photos are a bit jumbled up but 2 cameras with slightly different times on them arrange the photos in a higgledy piggledy manner.

What a stunning drive we had today.



Lake Okanagan West Shore.

Lake Okanagan, British ColumbiaMay 1st, 2017


 This area is so beautiful and completely different to what I had imagined. Today we took a drive down to the bottom of Lake Okanagan. Here are the pics. Mostly taken from the truck. A very still day gave us beautiful mirrored water images. We have to go back there!





























That's all for today folks. Stay tuned and we will soon be caught up!! Leave us a comment why don'tcha?
