Even though my husband is retired; he works more hours now than he did when he had a full time job. He loves farming. I mostly spend my time at home, when I'm not shopping, volunteering or playing cards. We have a cat that my daughter comes to stay with, when we are on the road. We love to travel and have been to a lot of places in Canada and the USA and would love to go back to most of them again. We sold our kayaks to my brother in 2014. I love taking photos; but don't seem to have many of our area.

Skills & Expertise to Share

We do know a lot about our area and north eastern Ontario, as my husband used to be a bus driver in that area. I have an on-line used book business, mostly rarer type books and when I take the time to read, it's usually biographies. I am currently President of our Ladies Auxiliary to Beaverbrook Branch 316. If we can't fix it; we probably know someone who can.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

We had a fairly large, 2010, 5th wheel with 3 slides, that we took to Labrador City, Newfoundland, PEI, Sauble Beach, Wisconsin Dells,and Mackinac Island, as well as Ottawa and other areas. We traded our 5th wheel for a 2016 Northern Lite truck camper, (this is our 5th) and it is our favourite mode of transportation. We took a 26' travel trailer to Inuvik, up and down the Dempster Highway in 2008. We spent 6 weeks travelling to Vegas, Texas and areas with a 2000 Corsair truck camper in 2012 and in the fall, 2013, we spent time in Florida. Our last trip was 29 days in August, 2015, touring through the USA to Oregon and then to Vancouver Island. We drove home through Canada and stopped to visit with family and friends. Sights we saw: Badlands of SD; Mount Rushmore; Old Faithful; Craters of the Moon; the Oregon Coastal Highway; Mt. St. Helen's; Vancouver Island; Sea to Sky Hwy; Whistler; and many more beautiful and not so well known sites. We camped at a Walmart once in north-west SC and will never do that again.

Canadian Hellie's Rig

Our 2016 Northern Lite is our 5th and current truck camper (no slides this time) and although we've seen a really nice travel trailer and a fantastic Class C; I think we'll be keeping the Northern Lite for a few years yet. We were lucky to get the last spot at a lot of campgrounds this summer due to our size. We usually purchase stickers in some areas that we've been and my husband was busy attaching some to the back of the camper.

Great time

backed into their driveway with a 24ft motorhome and a boat, just be careful of the house eves. Once that was done it was a quiet area.up pent the evening with Helen and Tyson on their porch. After dinner they invited to play cards - Sticks a game we have never played before. Stayed up late. Only regret is that I did not hook up with Tyson in the morning to go with him to his coffee group. Hope to be able to stop and visit again.

Great couple

I just solo stayed with Canadian Hellie for a couple of nights this long weekend. They are great accommodating hosts. Upon arriving I was even given a personal tour of the neighbourhood! I've never visited the area before and enjoyed riding my bike on the Tay trail to Port McNicol, lunch in Penetang, lying in the sun at Balm Beach and wandering the streets of Midland. Helen and Tyson are great hosts and have a great spot to park your rig for a couple days. Thank you both for a relaxing weekend.
