Milton Heights Campground

Today we moved to Milton Heights. We will be here for 11 days before we start our house sitting in London, Ontario. The morning was taken up with getting the propane in the Seneca filled, sorting stuff out at the storage locker in Ajax and stocking up on food.

While Michael was unhooking the car from the Seneca, a couple came over and chatted to us for a while. They are here for the whole winter.

Our site at Milton is a pull through and long enough to take the RV and the car. Nice and level, so we did not have to do much with the levelers to get us nice and stable. There are quite a lot of other campers here, some of whom are staying for the whole winter. There are actually people staying here and working full time. One guy is camping in a small truck camper. It is amazing to see what people are doing with trying to make the winter stay more comfortable. There are some winter campers who have put skirting around the bottom of their RVs and wooden frames with plastic sheeting around the doors to stop the cold wind blowing when the door is opened. Some people even use this space to hang coats and store boots, shovels etc.  We will not be doing this as we are only here until December 8th.

It was very easy to set up the Winegard Carryout automatic satellite dish. Michael also filled the water tank, cleaned out the tanks and got us all settled. We have rented a 100 lb tank of propane so that we don't have to keep going to a propane retailer to fill the RV propane tank. We had an Extend-A-Stay fitted by Owasco so that we could use an external tank. I hope we can handle the cold weather that is coming.

I spent the day unpacking the suitcase from the trip to California and putting stuff away. We are slowly getting ourselves organized.
