Our home town race! Allan’s been going since it’s inception in 1986. I’ve been going since I’ve had Allan. Try as hard as Allan did we could not gain permission to bring Bailey so we stayed at the Delta Hotel Toronto. This year’s room was the nicest ever. Bathroom was floor to ceiling windows. Love the view!
Pre-race activity… James Hinchcliffe @Hinchtown insisted on taking photos with us prior to the race. How could we refuse???
So glad the Stadium Super Trucks were back. They are such fun!! Certainly a must see!! Thanks @RobbyGordon
Finally! Bailey pick up day! Sicards claim the repairs are all complete. We doubt it but are so anxious to get Bailey to the park.
Uber picks us up at 6am. It’s amazing how we normally get their worst drivers. This guy thought it was appropriate to drive at or below the speed limit in the fast lane. While crossing the Burlington Skyway Bridge a pissed off driver decided he should let the Uber know the error of his way and cut us off so close we thought this was it.
Now at Sicards and of course everything is not done. To avoid another meltdown, I won’t recount the issues but we didn’t leave until 12:45 with still not everything done, 53267km.
We head to Newmarket through all the traffic, traffic, traffic…
Make it to Newmarket to load Bailey up, get fuel. Side story: I’m parked off to the side in my vehicle waiting for Allan to fuel and decide to take a photo of Bailey. The black tow truck had just pulled in to wait at the side for his next tow. He sees me taking the photo and pulls up to me and asks “Why are you taking my picture?” Guilty of being more than a
Arrive in Sutton 430ish. Our spot is very tight to back in to, a few wiggles and we’re in. This is one of the warmest days so far. The heat makes setting up a bit slower, but we get it done.
Today is filled with races. Our favourite of the weekend is the Nascar Pinty’s Series. The sun is shining so we brave the rickety Michelin overpass bridge and settle to watch the race at the start/finish line.
Bailey reunion day! It will be a short lived reunion but excited to get her.
We leave for the dealer in Smithville at 8:40a, eta 10:22a. Almost there but whoops, detour! The road we normally take is closed due to construction so we follow the Detour Route. We drive and drive and drive, finally arriving at the dealer at 10:50a. Forgot to take a photo 🙁
Head back, you have to love Toronto traffic – it’s brutal! It is worse than this photo depicts. Make it home at 1:30. We fill up with fresh water and Allan attempts to install our new Genturi but the connection fitting we require is not included. Amazon here we come!
2:21 Off to the campground. Kyle is here so he rides with Allan and I follow.
We know our actual site is not available yet because the trailer currently occupying it is not out yet. It is still too wet to move. Way too much rain this season.
We are storing it there, looks a little lonely, until Thursday when it’s off to the races.
This will be our spot! The decorative well, trailer and deck have to be removed. Learned today we are to cut the grass, but at least we have 50amp.
