First Post

Hello from Ontario, Canada. I retired from the Can. Airforce in 1996, after 29 years. I was a Flight Engineer CWO. Flew primarily on C130s, P3's and a number of desks. My wife and I ran our own garden center for a number of years after retirement, finally giving that up for our MH 2 years ago. Its been a steep learning curve, but thanks to this forum and its members, we've been doing just fine and are loving our rig. Its a a new to us 2005, 37' HR Vacationer. We flat tow our Saturn Vue. Well, thats about it.
Thanks to all our military on this continent, past and present, for preserving the life we have.

Phil & Lenore:

Hi from Tampa/St. Pete and a GREAT BIG WELCOME!!

We've been full timing since 05 after retiring out of Duluth, Minnesota and we're sure enjoying it. Right now we're getting ready to head up to Minneapolis to visit ailing mom (94 yr. old!!) but the danged weather along tornado alley is going to be a problem. Lots of flooding too. Then, IF we get through all of that, we're still looking forward to SNOW up in Minnesota. Dang,...this'll be some trip.

Well, again, WELCOME.

Welcome to another Canuck on this forum. We are in Kitchener and travel a fair amount during the summer camping season. We actually start our camping season with our Camping group next weekend at the Darlington Provincial park, near Oshawa.
You should bring your MH and come for the weekend as most of the people there are from a chapter of our camping group from the Belleville area.
There is no fee for camping as officially the campground is not open, but we are there to do a clean up for them and in return we also get two free nights after Labour day.
Its a fun weeknd and chance to meet some other great families from your area who camp.
If interested send me a message
Enjoy the lifestyle.
