Week 1 – Happy Days, Happy Days

Friday August 24th was my last day at Bombardier for 2018.

Well, sort of.

There was one task left for me to complete. I sketches it out this weekend and emailed it to the team on Monday.

Saturday was the big farewell party at Lake Ontario park which was good. The kids got to play in the splash pad and playground and we got to talk under the shade of a tree.

I also coined a new term.

When describing the blog I said there will be

Nothing Terribly Inappropriate

posted on the blog. Richard called me out for what exactly that means.

I am not sure exactly what is Terribly Inappropriate but I think we will figure it out as I write this blog.

The farewell party on Saturday went well and none of the kids got seriously injured. A grand parent did twist their ankle on a rock and had to be taken to urgent care but it appears to only be a sprain.

Sunday morning was spent at church and we got a blessing before hitting the road.

Monday Mariana committed the whole day to sorting things out in the RV. I took care of the kids and repaired bikes. Nana and Papa joined us at United Empire Loyalist and the kids got to play with their cousins.

Tuesday the RV goes into the mechanic for an oil change and a check over. We have a wifi OBD2 connector and a app to track fuel consumption and gas mileage. The engine currently has a code P1406 that will need to be corrected before we go.

Wednesday is last minute preparations and farewell drinks in the evening.

Farewell Drinks:

We will be getting together for Drinks at Red House West on Wednesday August 29th at 7:00PM if anyone would like to join Michael, Carla and myself.

Address: 629 Fortune Crescent, Kingston, ON K7P 0L5

Date: Wednesday August 29th

Time: 7:00PM

Phone: (613) 384-3999


The planned departure date is Thursday August 30th in the morning.

Observations after the first couple of days: The nights are ending early. By 9 or 10 pm we are packing it in to sleep.

After I post this at 9:43pm, I am going to bed.

Good night,
