Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Wedding Date (May 1999)

This is a picture of Shea and I just as we showed up for my sister’s wedding.  Nice to know we’re just as good looking today as we were back then! (Well, Shea anyhow.)

Five Disadvantages of a Seasonal Site

I did a post about the advantages of a seasonal camp site so it’s only fair to list some of the disadvantages. I already mentioned that it ends up being more expensive than you realise. You end up feeling obligated (or at least we do) to go out to your camp site as much as […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our First Visit to Echo Valley Provincial Park (June 2015)

Before we had our seasonal site there, we stayed at Echo Valley for a weekend in June 2015. We had a site backing right onto the main playground, only steps from where our seasonal site is now (I often sit in our seasonal site and look over diagonally at the ever-changing nightly campers staying in […]

Five Things We Underbudgeted For At Our Seasonal Campsite

Booze I knew we’d drink a bit at our seasonal site but between booze being expensive and happy hour starting at noonish most days (not to mention Bailey’s in the morning coffee), it adds up fast! Dollar Store Junk We’re spending a ridiculous amount each week on stuff that we use up quickly (glow sticks) […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our New (To Us) rPod 182g (August 5, 2014)

Canada Day 2015 at Echo Valley Provincial Park & Fort Qu’Appelle

Poking around for ideas about what we might do this weekend at our seasonal site, I came across this video which gives a good sense of the Fort Qu’Appelle Canada Day parade and fireworks a couple years ago.

Saturday Snap – The Exact Opposite of Us Pulling an rPod With A Minivan?

Pulling a giant fifth wheel RV with a semi – something I’ve never seen before! The family happened to be around when I snapped this pic so I stopped and chatted for a minute – the dad said they had their big rig to pull a semi trailer that had been customized as living quarters […]

Music Monday – “So I’m a free enterprising socialist/Gonna take my cut and share the rest/Left wing as the right wing gets/I’ll vote ’em in for the test”

Really enjoying Blake Berglund on my “Saskatchewan-artists-only” playlist at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. (I’m a bit late to the game but in looking more into Berglund for this post, I see that he’s just completed a personal challenge to sell 1000 copies of his albums in the month of May, mostly through […]
