We decided to forgo Larbador.
Ottawa had presented a challenge for me. For the first time since leaving home I was overcome with hardship on several fronts. I had encountered a problem with the trailer, I needed to do a much needed repair on the truck hoping it would be covered under warranty, and I felt a sickness coming on.
It didn’t seem like much at the time because I was advised by the seller of my trailer that the repair was covered by this affiliate in Ottawa and that the trucks issue may also be covered under the Dodge warranty. So this little scratch in my throat should be a problem either, I thought. I would spend some time with my friends in Ottawa and be out of there in a couple of days.
Our journey began as we pulled away from our recently sold home on June 30th. It is now nearing the end of August and we still find ourselves in Brooklin, just miles from our old house. Although we sit here, patiently waiting but unable to get going for various reasons, the last 60 days have not been wasted.
We had made a test run to visit my mother on Manitoulin island, a “shakedown”, to determine how well our current set up for the truck and trailer will work out in a real travel situation, as well as the day-to-day chores we’d have to carry out.
Our journey begins June 30th 2016. Please follow along.
