Felix, coming down the slide, a split second before splashing down into a puddle, soaking his pants. Anja, just realizing what was going to happen. Sometimes you just need to be in the right place at the right time. For those who are thinking “bad dad”, these were swimming trunks and we had towels and… Continue Reading

Canada Day

After all the fun we had at Dufferin Grove last weekend, we decided to spend our Canada Day morning there as well. The second we left the house it started raining hard for ten minutes, but we decided to go on anyway. In the end we were glad we did, as it cleared up into… Continue Reading

At the Dufferin Grove Playground

Today we spent a happy, muddy morning at the Dufferin Grove Adventure Playground. Water, sand, wood and shovels. Tasty hot dogs and macaroni cheese from a little volunteer manned cafe. It doesn’t get much better, especially in the middle of the city. I took our waterproof GoPro Hero with me, so we could grab some pictures without worrying about a… Continue Reading

Lake Erie – a tour

We’ve always been fans of Lake Huron. The sandy beaches, the wonderful sunsets, the wide open spaces dotted with well kept Mennonite farms, those were the reasons we bought our little weekend getaway farm cottage near Kincardine some years ago. Lake Erie via Landsat. The tongue sticking out from the top is Long Point Provincial… Continue Reading

“You can’t tow it with that”

Just got a lovely message on instagram, on a picture from last year as we were on our maiden trip to Long Point Provincial Park. We met a guy who asked the usual question, how do you tow an Airstream with a van, and I of course pointed him towards CanAm RV in London. Turns… Continue Reading

Exploring The Pinery Provincial Park

The Pinery Provincial Park has a bit of a mythical status – hard to get in, forget it on a long weekend, it is supposed to be one of Ontario’s most beautiful Provincial Parks. The Pinery is home to North America’s last surviving oak savannah habitat, the dunes along the shoreline were formed more than… Continue Reading

Anybody who has ever used google maps to create a custom map will appreciate the ease of use of madewithmap.com However, while it looks great, I am not sure what… Continue Reading

Shakedown trip to Point Farms

We had booked a shakedown trip for the May long weekend, to Point Farms Provincial Park on the shores of Lake Huron. We used to own an old farm worker’s cottage nearby, so we know the area well – agriculture and Mennonite farms as far as the eye can see, in a gently undulating landscape… Continue Reading

New (towing) tires for the Honda

I needed a set of new tires for our Odyssey. Not only is this our family vehicle, but we also use it to tow a 7500 lbs Airstream around, so we have some special needs to look after. After talking to both Andy from CanAm RV and the towing expert at my local tire shop,… Continue Reading

A new summer home for the home on wheels

On the scales today. Despite the impressive size this is a relatively light Airstream, weighing in at 7500lbs with a full tank of water and freshly filled propane. With her Hensley hitch, she tows like a dream. Early this morning I drove down to CanAm in London to pick our Airstream up and tow her… Continue Reading
