How cool! You are celebs of the lightweight rv world! Funny how they add the disclaimer at the end, "They wouldn't recommend fulltiming in a lightweight RV." Your set up seems just perfect. Love the cat condo and how you have accomodated your furry children.

Thanks for sharing your adventure and pictures! I have 15 years to try and convince my husband to go full-time in our egg. We may have to follow the path you have set...beautiful, beautiful scenery.

you said you are going up to Tofino?

Just got back from there! It's awesome.

Be prepared for the most twistiest uping downiest narrowist road you've ever seen

Plan a stop at Cathedral forest (on the way by)...

We stayed at Crystal Cove in Tofino. It's expensive camping ($44 a night Can during low season! - made me groan) - but nicer than some of the other spots up that way. Firewood & showers were included so that was good. (have to buy firewood in most B.C. and AB campspots anyway!) Campsites are within walking distance to the ocean. There is another spot up the road with rv spots right on the ocean - but tight quarters and lots of people even when we were there in early May.

I'll close this topic with this last message.

We could not go to The Oregon Gathering and were headed back towards the East when my daughter Zara, called and said she was going in for major surgery.
We rushed East to Toronto area where my wife (not Zara's mom).

On July 6th I was here in Las Vegas with Zara, surgery and then complications and second surgery. I'm still here and Melanie is still in Canada.

Funny huh, 12 months on the road 24/7 together and living in a Casita and now we have been apart for over two weeks( twice as long as the longest separation in 9 years). One extreme to the other.

Anyway our plans:

return to Northeast, move into apartment in winter and work a year or so. Maybe hit the road again in 2007.

It had better not be the last message, we want to hear more from you.
How is Zara, now ? Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Zara is doing OK. NO, I will continue to post, after all, we have gathered a bit of experience after a year in our Casita, Kat and we will share it with all the wonderful people who have helped us over the year.
