Oct 30, 2014 - Milton, ON (Milton Heights Campground)

October 30/14 - November 3/14 We got into Milton Heights Campground early and as we were setting up it started to rain. It was different this time around not seeing Mike’s mom in the rear view mirror as we drove south. She sold her house in the spring and we now will be leaving from the campground. We put the car into storage and finalized all the things with my mom. We spend the days organizing ourselves for the trip south. We tried a new restaurant in Milton called the Spoon and Fork, very good food. Campground Notes: Good Sams $35.10...

Aug 4, 2014 - Campbellville KOA

We are at the KOA in Campbellville, west of Toronto., it's close enough to the 401 that they give out free earplugs but you have to drive about 4 miles to get to it. We drove across the Blue Water Bridge into Canada today, it's the end of another long weekend and there was a good back up at the bridge but it took us about 30 minutes to get across and then we drove again on 401 which is a smooth road and it moved just fine. We were pelted with rain as we sat on the bridge over the river but it cleared as we started down the road so overall a...

Oct 23, 2012 - Rain, rain go away

On a passé la journée à l'intérieur, il pleut. On s'est reposé, à part ma sortie inutile chez le concessionnaire Ford; mes freins sont neufs, 11mm à l'avant et 8 mm à l'arrière, sur 12mm quand les plaquettes sont neuves. Ça m'a couté $60 pour l'apprendre. Maudit que c'est enrageant. Nous traverserons la frontière demain, j'ai réservé 3 soirs au KOA de Port Huron au Michigan, c'est juste de l'autre coté de Sarnia. C'est un beau terrain à cet époque de l'année, c'est vide, l'an passé il n'y avait que 4 ou 5 campeurs, le terrain ferme...

Oct 22, 2012 - Toronto

Aujourd’hui il a fait superbement beau, alors ce matin nous avons passé par le concessionnaire Ford de Milton pour prendre rendez-vous pour demain pour une inspection des freins. Ensuite nous avons stationné dans un stationnement incitatif et avons pris le service d’autobus GO qui est l’équivalent de l’AMT. Ça nous a couté $8.65 un allé simple pour Union Station au centre ville de Toronto. Toronto est en plein expansion, de la construction partout, il y a des grues partout. On ne voit pas cela à Montréal. Ils ont aussi leur festival de...

Oct 21, 2012 - Milton heights

Nous sommes arrivés au Milton Heights RV Park vers 15h après un départ de Kingston à 10h30, nous nous sommes arrêtés pour dîner à un service center un peu avant Toronto, on c’est aperçu qu’on avait oublié de sécuriser une armoire et qu’une assiette et un bol de Corelle avaient dégringolé et s’étaient éclatés en 1 million de morceau sur le plancher on a prit un 15 minutes pour ramasser les morceaux, ce qui fut un mal pour un bien car en ramassant les éclats je me suis aperçu que le coin d’une de mes extensions était usée plus que normal, on...

Sep 25, 2011 - The last two weeks

Dear Everyone, Yesterday we went on a cool walk round Crawford Lakes-a lovely wildlife reserve on the Niagara escarpment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niagara_escarpment). We went on a short half hour walk round the lake and saw a red squirrel. We also found a big red dragonfly, a strange unknown furry caterpillar and a cute little green caterpillar that had legs at the front and back and arched it's back when moving. After the walk we had some lunch we went on a walk to a lookout point. We saw 3 VULTURES, and two Television transmitters...

Nov 1, 2010 - Milton, Ontario (Start of Our Trip) (Milton Heights Campground)

November 1/10 Because we needed to stay in Ontario after November 1 we first spent a couple of weeks in Mike's Mom's Drieway, but once the black tank got full we had look for options. Surprisingly there are not many options for dumping the black tank these days... all the campgrounds are closed and the few other options were no longer available... And no-one would bring out a Honey-Wagon for us due to Insurance Concerns... Doh! The only open campground in the area (about 1 hour south of Barrie) was the Milton Heights Campground in Milton,...

Jul 7, 2010 - Go Transit & The Jersey Boys!

This would be the day of trying out Toronto's "Go Transit" system. We had tickets for the matinee of THE JERSEY BOYS at the Toronto Centre For The Arts. Instead of heading into downtown with the truck, we headed over to the Milton Park & Ride, about a 20 minute drive from the KOA, and grabbed the Transit Bus into Union Station, about a 75 minute ride. At Union Station we switched to the Yonge Street Subway which after about 20 minutes dropped us right in front of the theatre. Picked up our tickets and then headed over to the Dairy Queen to...

Jul 5, 2010 - A Very Short Day

Very short day as we basically headed back to Toronto and the Toronto West KOA in Milton. Easy access to the transit system so when we decide to challenge ourselves with a trip into town, we have to on Wednesday as we have tickets to the Jersey Boys, it's be a short jaunt in the truck and then sit back and let someone else do the driving!

Sep 10, 2009 - Into downtown Toronto

In the morning we used a bus to go into the big city. We walked around Air Canada Centre where the Leafs play and over one block to the Rogers Centre, where we bought excellent tickets for the Blue Jays game that afternoon - no-one is going these days because they have lost so many games. Anyway, we were right behind home plate, with only 2 rows of deluxe seats in front of us, so had lots of fun - and the Jays even won! After the game we went into the CN tower and up to the top to see what we could see. After that we went back to Union...

Aug 10, 2009 - Tour Toronto

We went to see Toronto today. We had a late start which was just as well, because there was a lot of traffic. We made it into Toronto and went to see Casa Loma, (castle on the hill). This was a house built by a Canadian military person who had built up substantial wealth. But he lost everything after WWI including his house. It was fun going through it. We drove through Toronto and saw the CN tower and neighborhoods and then headed to our campsite amongst all the traffic. Gas is expensive in Canada, about $3.70 per gallon, of course, they...
