As promised, a quick update.
As the photograph below shows, the Toadmobile hitched to the trailer sat perfectly with its drive wheels just on the road. I applied the power and away she went, without so much as sliplet. I didn't even have to use the front door mat for extra traction. Hurrah for front wheel drive! The irony is that the rain filled craters on the site were almost certainly due to rear-wheel drive trucks churning up the ground and they sought the leave the site. Tsk.
Of course we had to go and dump the waste tanks before running home, which was all done with the minimum of fuss. Just as we'd finished, the very dark sky opened up on us and it veritably poured down. Good timing for once.
We opted for the McKay's Corners route to Chatham and were back home just as the heavens opened once more, so we parked on the driveway and headed inside for lunch. It rained, heavily, for about the next three hours. I did get out to unhitch and level the trailer in between bouts of monsoon rainfall, and at nearly 6pm, we've only just gone back into get the dirty laundry, the trash and the recycling.
So much for our last trip of the year!
I will follow this edition up with my annual roundup, but for now it's poutine for supper and a proper bed to sleep in tonight.
