Mission Statement: Supporting thoughtful exchange of knowledge, values and experience among RV enthusiasts.
Stay tuned for what may be some comical entries!

I've always been told I should be a writer. Not that I think I'm good at it, all my family, friends, acquaintances and coworkers tell me I just have a way of telling a story.
Yes, I have been known to embellish things a bit, but without an apt description of events, it just wouldn't paint the picture in quite the light that it needs.

Many of our adventures.....wait, let me change that....Many of our misadventures start out with all the right intent, but somehow end up a WHOLE lot different than intended.
Being as my wife have a sense of humour, it helps get through most of the calamities that befall one who enjoys the RV Lifestyle.

Island Holiday 2015

Island Adventure 2015

Aside from a few small glitches like blowing the seals or hose on one of the front hydraulic jacks the first day rendering my leveling system useless for the whole trip, things have been great.
The only catastrophic event was we blew out the hinges on the toilet seat and for a few days using the Lou was a nightmare. I could here screams and some words I won't repeat from the room on many an occasion. I finally mustered all my skills together and ventured forth on a quest to find a replacement. Not one RV shop on the island carried the brand of toilet we have. I found a Home Hardware and made a few trips to find one the right colour and close enough shape.
Cheers were heard from the Brandt family following the installation of the new acquisition and using the facilities in a seated position has become pleasurable once again for all parties.

Order restored.

One other event comes to mind.
One evening, in an effort to provide one of the many courses of sustenance, Bonnie used the convection oven while the A/C was on and blew the breaker on the pedestal. We couldn't get the breaker to reset. It was hotter than Hades in the coach.
An evening of discovery including resort maintenance and a bevy of electricians ensued. The result of which was to let the breaker box cool down and after an hour we turned the A/C on and "Voila"!

We were chillin again.

Weather has been absolutely perfect. Hot and sunny with an occasion of high alcohol consumption followed by some very slow days with little movement so as to not hinder the recuperation process.

Today we pack up to leave Parksville and head south of Nanaimo for the remainder of our holiday.

Ciao for now.
Island Man out.
