Can't really blame the previous owners...this RV was sold at auction to this eBay seller company, we suspect it has been sitting for about a year and a half. All the manuals and a lot of the maintenance records were included, so we were able to ascertain the name of the previous owners. I googled it and found that the Mr. Passed away in 2011 and was 80, so you know as we age we don't see as well and miss alot of dirt. We found this to be true of our own parents and some of our aging friends. But shame on whatever family member helped Mrs. send it to auction or perhaps there was no family :( Oh well we are going to do lots to it, like changing out all the gold colored knobs, light fixtures etc. for nickel and I will change some or all of the upholstery. Lots of small things that will make it ours. This is a diesel unit with very low miles, so DH thinks worth the cleanup/fixup. :)

Have been reading some short news blips. It seems that Canada is going to be getting two Giant Pandas. Great news!

Have a great time Kylie!

Thanks Chopper. It's going to be great fun! We hope to travel down the Oregon coast this fall with friends. We have traveled two of the last 3 years with them in their truck and 5th wheel. This year we will have our own "digs". Looking forward to it!

Thanks guys


Good afternoon everyone

We have arrived at Victor Harbor

We left about 9.30am, drove to Strathalbyn, we were there for about 2 hours, it is a lovely country town, so scenic!

We had a lovely slice of cake each from a bakery there, Steve had cherry baked cheesecake and I had Ferrero Rocher cake, OMG how sweet

Went for a nice walk around the town and then back in the car heading to Port Elliot. When down to the seas edge on heaps of big rocks and watched the waves crashing and we also saw some seals playing in the water!

Then we had lunch at the Flying Fish Cafe, we had Coopers Ale battered fish and chips, very nice

Then onto Victor and here we are in our hotel room, it is very nice and we have a lovely view of Granite Island and the ocean, also a lovely reserve, loving it.

Just enjoying a coffee and soon we are off again for a walk around Victor

I had to check out the places you mentioned and wanted to share.

What a wonderful holiday!

Oh Australia! One day I hope.

I just finished breakfast and now I need to bake some scones to take to Master Gardener class tonight. I'm doing a presentation on Preserving Herbs and wanted to have some samples
