Let’s go now

We leave Vancouver for the “Sunshine Coast” where it is sunny as soon as the rain stops; as a local explains to us. Just north of Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast can only be reached by ferry.

Glitches and waiting periods

The first RV week is filled with waiting for our belongings and some glitches: We can’t get the Hot Water Heater to start, and the problem can’t be solved over the telephone. We drive to the dealership, where a technician gets it going; just needed a good shaking.

Real Canadian breakfast

The Parking Brake is completely separate from the regular brakes, but the mechanic suggested checking the Parking Brake system. A switch and brake fluid should be replaced according to the technician, so we decided to go for breakfast in Cloverdale.

First driving ‘lessons’

Frank has to drive the first stretch by himself, since I am driving the rental car. 60kms on the Trans Canada Hwy, and I am watching from behind, as he moves the “bus” through traffic.

It was quite strenuous for Frank, but he survived. Soon, it is my turn, and it feels wobbly. WOW, what a feeling; I have to remind myself to constantly check the rear view mirrors. After a few days, we are getting used to the dimensions.
