We were up early Saturday morning to head up to our friends in Orillia to winterize the trailer and to give him a hand with that Quonset that we worked on last month. We got there at near 10 am and saw that since were there last about half the bands were up.
We figured it wouldn't take too long to get the rest up. Wrong!!! The boys got the final band installed at 7 pm. Here are a few pictures of that last baby going up.
Now he just needs to close it in. There were 7 men working there all day to get the last of those bands installed. A huge job!!
Then it was to start to winterize the trailer. The guys were pumping in the antifreeze but it seemed to be taking an awful lot. But this is the first time we have done it so we had no idea how much it should take. Well we ran out. So we figured we would put out the slides and put in the kayaks so they would be ready for when we leave for Florida. As the dining room slide moved out I found the missing antifreeze. All over the floor and in the carpet. A damn mouse had chewed the water line to the ice maker. As they were pumping the fluid in it was running out on the floor. What a mess! I sponged it up as best as I could and then asked if there was a shop vac handy. In that came and they ran a long extension cord for power. It kept blowing the beaker. Could not get it to work. By now it is dark, the mosquitoes are out in full force and no one has had dinner yet. We called it quits, had dinner and decided to camp out in the trailer for the night and finish in the morning.
This morning we headed into town for more antifreeze. Got the job finished and headed to Stuarts. Took this picture along the way. Fall is definately in the air.
They offered to treat us to dinner at a sushi place in Barrie. Dinner was excellent. Ate far too much!! Thanks again guys!!
Beautiful sunset on the way home. Tomorrow should be a nice day.
Until next time -safe travels.
