We learnt a lot about ourselves, our family, our relationship and much more in our first full month on the road. Our adventure has come to a bid of a stand still and we are still in Ontario and have been since July 1st.
You must always expect the unexpected when it comes to a "on the road" lifestyle. I did not however expect the unexpected to happen so soon! On our way to Ottawa Ontario a Tire blew on the RV. Not a big deal we thought ...we were soooo wrong. Small town on a Sunday night of a long weekend, nobody could help us no matter how hard we tried, so we drove a very short while on the flat until we came across a KOA camp ground (Thank goodness!!) When we got there we were tired, hot, and extremely stressed as we had no idea when a garage would be opening. After a good nights sleep, we re-grouped and started looking for a place to fix our flat. Luckily there was one right up the road, but was closed until after the long weekend! We were stuck at the camp ground for 2 days, but we made the very best of our little situation and it turned out to be fun.
Currently we are in Ottawa camping out again, waiting to get yet another flat tire fixed! This one blew on the way out of Ottawa - this time we had no spare and because our camper is a little on the older side they no longer make the tire size we need,(ahhh!) so we need to change all the back tires to a new size and it takes awhile to order the rims in, Ironically the rims need to be ordered from Nova Scotia! Currently we are looking for a WWOOF out where we are so that we can keep busy and make our time here in Ottawa worth it! I am not sure as to when we will be up and on the road again, but we really hope it's soon!
Overall it has been fun and well worth the added stress!
Thank you for reading and keeping up with our journey!
