The Acreage

Here we are at one of our favorite campsites, " The Acreage " otherwise know as Donna and Gerry's. We visit here 4 or 5 times a year. It's quiet, relaxing and always a great time.
Our friend Brenda joined us for the weekend. We arrived Friday night around 9 pm, got all set up and then sat around the fire until a little after 11 pm.
Saturday was a little on the cool side to start the day off, but the afternoon turned warm enough for us all to put on our shorts and enjoy the sun, Gerry and I even manage to get our first game of horseshoes of the year played, as usual he beat me in all three games. After steaks on the BBQ for supper we enjoyed another fire until 11 pm and the night turned cool so headed in for a great nights sleep. Sunday morning a was beautiful and why not, it's Fathers Day, but we do have to get packed up and head for home. The drive home is usually uneventful, but today wasn't one. There is a spot just outside of Stratford where we pull in and stretch our legs. As I got out and walked around the trailer I heard air escaping from one of the trailer tires, GREAT! This is a first, I took a few minutes to think about how I was going to change it and soon set to task, 30 to 40 minutes later we were on our way.
Arrived home without further incident, unloaded and ready for another work week. So, another great weekend coming to an end as I type this post. Hope yours was as well. Thanks for stopping by, until the next time, take care.


  1. Sounds like another wonderful weekend.
    Too bad about the flat tire, maybe tire for new trailer tires.

  2. Hope not, tires look in good shape. We picked up a stone as we turned into a little rest area outside of Stratford. Tire went flat in about 5 minutes, glad it happened there and not out on the road.

  3. Most of our rv friends change their trailer tires every 5 years, no matter what they look like, On our coach every 7 years, even though they still look like new. It is worth it in the long run one blow our can cause an awful lot of damage. Check the DOT date for date of manufacture thats what we go by.
