Packing up…

Saturday is pack up Bailey day.  Kyle was such great help drawing on his pack a ship experience.  We were done in about 4 hours.

Allan and Kyle de-winterized  Bailey.

We left Newmarket at 1:40pm and did our first diesel fill in Vaughn.  Destination Sarnia

Traffic in and around the GTA was horrendous so we didn’t arrive at the Sarnia border till closer to 6.

We decided to cross into the States. Customs was so easy with no delays.

We are now in search of our first Walmart parking lot for the overnight,   Lapeer MI we are here. Can’t believe we didn’t take a photo.   This is when we discovered the water does not work.   So much to learn, too many switches, fuses, breakers.  Will investigate tomorrow in daylight, but we all know Allan he has to try to RTFM.

We found a Mexican restaurant, Pueblo Viejo delicious, ever in the neighbour a must go!

Back to Bailey, after a glass or 2 of wine and Allan’s Rickard’s Red in front of our roaring fire It’s off to bed about midnight.


Bailey has joined the family :)

Operation pick up complete but not without some stress.  1-1/2 drive to pick up was good.  Ed trained us in the basics, lots and lots to learn.

Hiccup! The dealer winterized Bailey now we have to learn how to un-winterize.  For now we can’t use any form of water because its antifreeze.

Drive home, including Friday night traffic and rain = 3 hours. At least it was a comfortable ride.

Added our mascots to Bailey.

This is us!

Hi and Welcome to our “Bailey” blog!

Our travels so far:


Our names are Allan and Mary-Ann.

Koodos to Glenn Rodger Photography for the impromptu photo.


We both choose a driver at the beginning of the IndyCar season. The driver who finishes the race ahead of the other gets first place status on the dash, until the next race.

It has been our dream to travel.  More specially we are IndyCar racing mega fans; it is our goal to travel to every race.

First step done, Bailey has been purchased we are anxiously awaiting pickup on November 2, 2018.
