Barbara and Ron have been traveling together since 2005 when he sold his house and went on the road full time. In 2006, I sold my fifth wheel in which I had been living since 2001 and moved in with Ron in his motorhome. Since then we have traveled throughout much of the US and some of Canada. We met through our singles RV club WIN (Wandering Individuals Network) and sometimes travel with them or other friends. In 2009, we bought a house in Mesa, AZ, to use as our winter home.
While researching the area, our host Carol emailed the Voyageur Trail Association to ask about hiking part of the trail. The Voyageur Trail is planned to go 700 miles across Ontario and currently 200-300 miles are completed. She had more of a response than she expected when two of the members volunteered to show us their favorite part of the trail, the Gros Cap section.
Once again, thanks to Peggy for all the great kayaking pictures. She’s going to start asking for royalties.
And what were Ron and I doing while our friends were having this once-in-a-lifetime experience? Well, we did laundry and shopped because we’re moving 150 miles today to Wawa and heaven knows we’ll never see another laundromat or grocery store. Oh well, at least we have clean clothes and lots of food. I guess you can tell I’m sorry I missed ‘locking through’, but I’m glad my friends had such a great day.
