Pretty quiet around here lately

We’ve been home for a couple of weeks now, and haven’t done much other than keep the house clean and ready to show. We’ve only had one showing since we returned, although it’s been interesting to sit in our dining room playing cards in the evening and watching people stop in front of the house and check it out. All we need is for some of them to want to actually see the house sometime soon.

We have managed to get out a few times to see some live music at the local Spirit Square in downtown Campbell River. The local arts community is putting on live shows on Tuesdays during lunchtime as well as  Thursday evenings. The shows have been really good, and we’re looking forward to seeing more over the rest of the summer.

We managed to get a hike around the river into our agenda yesterday, which we do quite often, but yesterday we found out that the access across the river at the BC Hydro dam was closed for maintenance. It’s just not the same walking halfway around the river and back again as it messes with Sylvia’s sense of equilibrium. Who says we’re in a rut.

This afternoon we drove down to Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park to take a walk in the forest. We’d never been there, and as we’re going to be leaving the Island we figure we should try and see some of the sights we’ve missed before we go. The hike isn’t that strenuous, but there are lots of stairs and the views are very nice. On our way home we stopped for dinner in Courtenay and ran into a fella I used to work with and his wife. Dan and I travelled all over the North Island seeing the sights and trying to keep out of trouble for close to 15 years. He retired not long before I did and from the looks of it he and Trudi are having as much fun as we are.



On another note, our buddy Les (who is traipsing around Greece at this moment) has decided to part with his travelling home as he’s moving permanently to Mexico. His RV, which he calls Ramona, is a 2006 23’ Winnebago Aspect that is in great condition. Here is his information on the RV. If you know anyone who needs a small Motorhome, this is a very nice unit.


Ramona is a 2006 model that I purchased new in July of 2007. I am the only owner and driver. The vehicle has been smoke free and accident free.

I know the mileage is high at 80000 miles but for me they were great miles.

My lifestyle is changing and I am moving to Mexico and that is the reason for the sale.

In addition to the specification sheet Ramona has an 80 watt solar panel installed by the best dealer inOregon three years ago.

It also has Sirius Satelite radio but not regular radio as the attenae was damaged by vandals on Salt Spring Island and I had it cut down.

The bathroom toilet has never been used, a personal issue.

It has the TV and Satelite dish package.

The 7 tires are less than 15 months old.

The three brand new batteries were installed in May 2012.

I removed the huge console Tv in the centre of the entertainment centre and turned that into a storage area.

There is a mounted bracket for the 19” flatscreen TV/DVD combo player that is included in the price.

Last year I had all the seat covers redone in a Mexican theme.

Included in the price is a trailer hitch and ramp which carries a 49cc Yamaha scooter 3 years old with 900km also included in the price.

A wrap around front window cover and two tire covers.

There is a 4000 Onan generator.

The vehicle is in immaculate condition

I am asking for the total package $41000 dollars.

I can be contacted at

  1. Thanks for posting Ramona’s information Rod. Perhaps there is someone out there who needs a new house AND an new motorhome!
