We have our new RV!! She is called Kyalami!

We picked up our Dutch Star yesterday and so far we love it! It is so bright and airy inside, and so roomy. In the Seneca we lost about 6 feet in the front due to the engine and the cab. In this new RV we can make use of the whole inside space. It is awesome! We have a real bedroom, not just a small cubicle at the end of the vehicle. Michael is thrilled with all the room in the large bins underneath.

Timmy has made himself at home already, choosing to sleep under the dinette table. He also likes the sofa back where he can sit and look out the window.

We are planning our first weekend away over the Canada Day weekend when we go to the Lake Whittaker Campground in Kettle Creek Conservation Area. Come back for a report on that trip.

I am back!!

Well, it has been far too long since I posted to the blog. I (Dee) was quite ill for a week (tummy bug) and am only recovering now. Then we had to come home to Ontario and I just had to take things easy for a couple of months because my knee was giving me trouble. We have been doing the rounds of doctors, dentists, eye specialists etc.

In the meantime we have traded the Seneca in for a Newmar Dutch Star. Here are the pics of the new rig. We have named the RV "Kyalami". which mean "Our Home" in Zulu.

This is one of the reasons we upgraded. The Seneca has a queen bed which is squeezed into the the back corner, I am having terrible trouble with my knees and back and found it exceedingly difficult to get in and out of bed. I can now get in and out with ease and when I have my knee surgery, I will even be able to use a walker inside. 

I have had a cortisone shot in my knee and I am feeling on top of the world. My tummy troubles are over and I have a whole new lease on life. Hooray!
