Arrival on the Island

I have arrived at Croft’s home in Campbell River, on Vancouver Island. Expect me to start flooding the blogosphere this evening as I begin to share the full story of my 3,000km journey from Dawson City.

Winter Plans

The cat is out of the bag and I can now announce my plans for the winter! I will continue working in Dawson until the end of August and then return to Watson Lake for as long into October as I can stand it. I will then travel south to Vancouver Island. I had briefly mentioned this destination as being a possibility for this winter and one of my readers picked up on it. He offered me a great opportunity.

So, it is with great pleasure that I can say that for the 2009/2010 winter, I will be parked in Croft‘s driveway in Campbell River, house sitting for him and Norma by parking my RV in their driveway. Retired RVers go to Mexico for the winter while non-retired RVers housesit for the Mexico-bound. 😀 Their generous offer will give me a good chance to get my finances back on track, provided I can find a good contract or job in Campbell River! Thanks, Croft and Norma!

I will be able to take a different route to Vancouver Island than I took north from Vancouver, so my journey back to the Vancouver lower mainland and across the water to Vancouver Island will make for interesting blogging. Depending on the work situation on the Island, I should be able to explore quite a bit, if only in the toad. I also plan to fully utilize Croft’s workshop to make some much needed personalizations to Miranda now that I’m fully committed to full-timing in her!

With winter plans firmly squared away, I now know what I’m doing straight through to the late fall of 2010. I don’t think I’ve ever before planned so far ahead!
