... didn't get out of the way on time somewhere in Quebec last week... That sucked. But yeah, we've killed a lot of bugs lately and I'm sure there are many more to come. And I don't care ... in fact 'Go windshield!'
As you can probably guess by the content of that first paragraph, there really isn't much to talk about today. We left Brampton ...

This pic shows what part of the camper looked like initially- essentially our table/couch was unusable. Over the next several weeks we did organize and will share how and what we did to make it livaeable.
BTW KOA Higgins Lake, although a little pricey, is a very nice, clean and well run campground and we highly recommend it as an alternative to the State Park Campgrounds in the area if they are full.
