I drove the camper van to my brother's house this past weekend. He will clean it up and sell it for me. Much as I dreamed I could keep it, the practical me says I really don't need it. The cost to maintain it is ok if there is somebody around who knows how to manage it but I sure don't. I really don't need the insurance cost and none of the kids fits it as a camping unit. Its time to sell. So I drove it to Saskatoon and had a lovely long weekend with family.
And returned to my home on the bus. That was interesting. Not bad. Just interesting. I thought I would knit more and I might have if I had a better seat. If I ever take the bus again I am going to pay the extra to seated first.
And then there were all the corners the bus driver took just a little too fast and how sometimes you had to grip the rail in front of you and firmly plant both feet to hold yourself on the seat...yeah. Less knitting than I thought there would be.
I was hoping to use the trip back as a 'will I like bus travel enough to do a long trip' tester. I would love to do a fall leaves trip through the eastern trees. Or go to Maryland to the Sheep and Wool festival to see sheep and non sheepy friends who live just down the road a short ways.
I am not sure that one trip was good and fair test. It sure was interesting and I hope fore better to come.
