I did get going and made my way to the wonderful little town of Banff. There was a bit of snow here and there but the roads were safe, in the area that I was traveling. If I had been travelling to the coast, I might have had some trouble, but as it is, I am fine.
I am now at my campsite, I disconnected Trea from Wanda, but didn’t move anywhere. I may go down to the town today to see the sights, I’m not sure.
Here is what I see out my windows, does your view compare?
I am now relaxing here in my trailer and despite the weather I plan to have a BBQ at least once while I am here.
The electric heater working with the furnace is keeping Wanda nice and warm yet not taxing that furnace out. I am splurging and keeping it set to 20C even while I sleep.
Speaking of sleeping I slept for about 12 hours last night, (okay I got up once to go to the washroom in the night). I went to bed at around seven at night and got up at seven in the morning.
I was up before the sun and made sure to get a nice sunrise shot over the mountains.
Here are a few random, yet cool mountain pics.
As nice as it is here in my campsite in the mountains, I am here alone. It would have been nice to have gone to the coast to visit family for Christmas, but I need to keep on with this journey of saving money.
I could make my life easier by renting a place to plug-in, and I know that. It got down to -12C and I was fine with my electric heater and furnace. I also know that would cost extra money which would blow my timeline of the paydown . . . and that is not acceptable.
I am really looking forward to having these credit cards paid off and Wanda refinanced so that there is no balloon payments at the end. I also know that I do not need to plug-in all the time to survive.
I will weather this winter in the manner in which I have figured out, this too shall pass and Debt Freedom shall come as surely as the warmer weather.
Have a Happy Christmas all.
