Hi Everyone

Just a quick update to let you know that we've arrived in Florida after a 1500 mile trip.

We didn't leave Ottawa until 2.30pm as we had a few things to sort out!  We stayed in Pennsylvania on Thursday night and then set off at 8.00am the next day.  We were doing well until the car engine made a funny noise.  We stopped to check it out and then discovered that the trailer left wheel was leaking grease!!! The wheel cap had come off as it had not been tightened.  You can imagine what we were thinking!  We went to a trailer retailer who sorted us out. Luckily we are members of the Canadian AA. We also had a terrible noise in the engine !!!!!!!!! I opened the car bonet to discover that the noise was caused by a spanner being left by the fan thankfully no problem.  This set us back over 2 hours!!  The next night we stayed in South Carolina and set off at 8.00am.  We arrived in Orlando at 5.30pm.  We stayed the first three nights in a Holiday Inn Express but tonight is our first night in our new trailer tent that we will call home for the next 9 weeks!!!

Went to Epcot on Monday and Blizzard Beach water park on Tuesday. Today we were so tired we decided to book into an RV park and sort out Disney tickets etc.. Just as well as the weather today was terrible and did not stop raining. We went to Walmart today and bought some food and other items for the trailer.

Its really nice to be in the trailer tonight although its a little humid! Some of the other tent trailers have air conditioning !!!!!!!!! But we are glad to be here rather than a hotel room as at least it feels more like a home. The internet connection is great, hopefully we will have some spare time now to relax and enjoy our vacation.

Keep viewing and emailing, its great to hear from you all.

Hope your having a great time.
Hi all. Firstly have you got the emails I've sent to your various email addresses. The kids are all missing greg and ellen and are always keen to get an update from your travel blog. I'm guessing you've got school sorted without the need to buy a house before you started your travels? Is the house something to sort out in September now or have you changed any travel plans. Our house move may be going through, as our buyer now has a buyer! Keep the travel blog coming as frequent as possible and confirm which email address so we know the messages are getting through. Take care. Love to all.

Great to hear from you at the weekend
Hi all, After we spoke at the weekend, I've found flights for Xmas to montreal. I'd like to book them as soon as poss before they go - are you OK to pick us up and put us up, or do we need to wait for the house you've found to be confirmed.
