It has been a couple of months and now that we are settling in towards winter, or at least fall, I have some time to spend on this site.

Isla is now in grade 3 and enjoying school. She missed her friends over the summer.

I had some airline points that were about to expire so I flew to Comox on Vancouver Island to visit my step-sister in Coombs, BC. She is doing very well and we had several days to catch up on each other’s lives.

I rented a 2022 Hyundai Elantra while there and was very impressed with the car. It was quiet and smooth, had adequate power and got amazing fuel economy. At a steady 114kph it used only 5.1 litres to go 100kms. That’s 55mpg!

We got out camping again in mis September. We spent a week at Carson-Pegasus Prov Park about 2 hours north-west of home.

It turns out that we could have gone out again for another week as the first overnight frost wasn’t until October 21st, a new record for the latest ever first frost of the season.

It has been so warm I haven’t even put the snow tires on the car yet. Maybe you need to live here to appreciate that, but kids just wearing a sweater under their costumes on Hallowe’en is very rare. I bet we get a lot of kids!

Work on the family tree continues. At the end of the year I will put aside my work on my mother’s side and spend a month or two working on Tess’ tree again. When that reaches it limits because of the lack of on-line records, I’ll go back at my father’s side for the rest of the year.

No, it will never be done.

Tess and I are thinking about a big RV trip again next year. I want to go back north to the Yukon and North West Territories and she wants to go to the east coast for seafood. Negotiations continue

Hockey season is back so we are glued to the TV 2 or 3 evenings a week. The Oilers are off to a slow start but I remain confident they will be a Stanley Cup contender this season.

That's about it from us for this update. Stay safe and healthy! Type to you in December.

Greg, Tess & Camper
