We are casino dealers, who decided to sell our house and do some RVing around Ontario, and maybe out east in the summer. As we wait for Fallsview casino reopen we will be doing rving in the meantime.
We are quiet, one of us smokes, and we usually keep to ourselves and do our own thing. A drink or three is great around the campfire once in a while.
Our RV adventure started on April 7th 2021. The next day on April 8th 2021 Ontario went under lockdown until June 2021. We were unable to cross the Quebec or Manitoba Border as well as the USA Border. So we have been staying at Boondockers Welcome locations until we finally found a campground to stay at for almost a whole month while we figure out what is happening with the lockdown.
We aren't sure where we will be next year, but hoping to go to Arizona in the winter and then out west in Canada next summer.
Our long term goal is to retire in Ecuador.
I have 25 years experience dealing casino games, and my wife rhonda has about 10 years experience as a casino dealer. We have dealt all various games and have seen everything!!!
We have 9 years experience as landlords managing 10 units.
We have 6 years experience as Foster Parents, and have fostered over 50 children in that timeframe from 2 weeks old up to 17 years old. We still keep in touch with our foster daughter and adopted boy who lives on his own now.
I consider myself tech/computer savvy and know how to fix pretty much everything home related: plumbing, electrical, drywall, locks, painting, etc, mostly learnt from being a landlord.
Mia is a red siberian husky who just celebrated her 15th birthday on March 3rd 2021.
She weighs about 75 lbs, is very quiet and barks maybe once per week?, and sleeps most of the day. She still gets excited about her 1/2 hour walk everyday, and gets along with other dogs. She doesn't play much anymore, but enjoys biscuits and treats and being spoiled.
Right now during lockdown in Ontario, are favorite boondocking locations are at Boondockers Welcome host sites.
Our favorite camping locations are Algonquin, Killbear, Pinery and Bon Echo.
We used to tent camp in those locations years ago for 8 to 9 nights at a time.
We are both born in St. Catharines Ontario Canada an our current home is a 2021 Keystone Travel Trailer BH 240. The box is only 24.6 feet long!!! LOL
Our travel trailer is a Keystone Passport 2021. The box is 24 feet and the length from the back to the front of the hitch is 27 feet. We have one small slide out, a self contained kitchen, bath and shower, and a 19 foot awning. Our Truck is a blue 2013 F150 that is about 19 feet long. Our total length, truck and trailer is about 47 feet.
Hardly knew they were here, and they were very patient as I was in and out of the yard about 7000 times during their stay!
Great people, they stayed a week and enjoyed the property. With COVID didn’t get to know them as well as in the days before COVID. They are welcome back.
Thanks again for the kind words. We enjoyed your visit and you are welcome here any time in the future. John/Betty
It was a pleasure to help out these folks who are trying to live the dream amidst the ever changing availability of camp sites due to COVID. Their 'senior' dog was no trouble at all and our guests were sure to keep her on her leash - though that was not required given our situation.
As we mention in our profile - this is what we would like to be doing, so it was great to be able to share our dreams and plans over a couple of drinks.
We hope to see these guests again and catch up down the road!
Wish Justin and Rhonda all the best as they start their journey's this year with its extra challenges and restrictions
We had an early start to the Boondockers season. Too cold and rainy to have a campfire so we visited in the garage. Learning a little about their travels and plans if Covid restrictions allow. Always interesting to spend some time and get to know some new people.
Very friendly couple, we hope your coming back again. We had a few nice conversations with each other!
All the best to you in this journey !
The cat was found , thank you for the help !!
