The Road To Toronto

Sorry,  no pics today.  The wifi signal here is not too good but more on that in a moment.  Well as I said, it is always hard to say goodbye.  Yesterday we took our time getting up and Pat fixed a great breakfast of gluten-free blueberry pancakes, sausage and bacon.   Yummy breakfast!  Oh, and real maple syrup.
After breakfast we went over to the neighbor's house to take a look at the work they were having done on their backyard and pool area.  Big job and I am sure big bucks, six more weeks to completion.   However, the neighbor told us that her great-grandmother was the first teacher in the octagonal schoolhouse that you saw the other day.   How cool is that!
We packed up the rv and said our goodbyes.  We could have moved in but as I always say, "visitors are like fish", after three days they start to stink.   We have found another good traveling couple and we hope to see them soon in Mexico.   We talked about them flying down to Monterrey and then a road trip to San Miguel de Allende.
Filled up with gas in Simcoe and headed out.  It wasn't long on the road that we opened the travel package Pat had put together and I found some trailmix.  Nibbled on that and before we knew it we were heading past Hamilton and into the Toronto area.   We had downloaded the directions from the campground's website.   It was exact down to the tenth of a kilometer.   Fool proof.   No doubt, Toronto is a big city and people drive like it.  I put myself in to Monterrey mode and all worked out well.
We knew in advance not to expect much from the Indian Line Campground based on its reviews.  A bit dumpy with some long-term pack rats living here, wifi is iffy and general maintenance sucks.  We are here though to see Toronto and they have a bus stop (Go station) right outside the front gate that takes us to the subway and on to downtown.   We are taking the 9:35 this morning.   A little late but Juan had been feeling a bit ill since yesterday.   He had a slight fever last night, I put him to bed with lots of blankets, tea and aspirin.   This morning he is back to normal.  


  1. Glad you got rid of Juan's bug. It wouldn't be any fun in "Hogtown" feeling ill. My grandmother lived there when I was a kid and I have fond memories of visiting the city once or twice a year. Having said that, it's a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there!

  2. Have too much fun in the big city, so much to see and do there.

  3. Glad to hear all is well with Juan!! Happy trails until we meet again, (soon)!

  4. The campground service it's purpose, close to Toronto at a reasonable rate. LIkely you'll only sleep there. Now that Juan is better you can cross any further illness off your list for the rest of your trip. You are both done with it. Have fun in Toronto.
