On the road again!

In February of this year, we purchased a brand new Roadtrek Zion SRT camper van, and very shortly we'll be on the road again. After two years without a motorhome, since selling our last one, we decided we hadn't had enough of RVing, but we wanted to be as small and nimble as possible this time around -- no trailer pulling or toad hauling, no slides, no bulk. Just a beautiful, sleek, silver bullet, short enough to fit into a city parking space, but fitted with all the comforts of home, from a queen-size bed to TV and microwave, and top-of-the-line lithium batteries plus solar panels on the roof to keep us humming in the most remote locations.

In the deep freeze of Ottawa's winter, we've been trotting loads of supplies out to the van, lining shelves and cupboards with cushion foam, and figuring out where everything will go. A fun challenge, but a bit uncomfortable when your fingertips start to go numb and your feet turn to ice. It's hard to believe we may be sweltering in this space in a week or so, but that's our hope! Our destination is Florida for our maiden voyage, and if you are interested, check back soon and you can follow us along on our journey.

Bye for now!
