The owner of the cottage does not use the property after Canadian Thanksgiving, and very kindly consented to us parking on the property until we leave for California.
It is very quiet and tranquil, as most of the neighbouring property owners have closed up and left until next Spring. So far, unusually mild weather is staying around, with temperatures remaining well above freezing. Obviously, this will not last, but we are prepared for some cold weather. We have been in our rig in temperatures down to 0 deg.F (-18 deg.C), and experienced no water system issues.
We are hooked up to a 30 amp electrical supply from the cottage, and we are obtaining our water supply from Georgian Bay. The lake water is clear and clean, and I am running it through a 30 micron filter to remove any particles. We use the water for bathing, dishwashing and laundry, and purchase bottled water for drinking.
We are disposing of our wastewater directly into the cottage septic tank system, using a "Blue Boy" portable tank, about once per week. I installed a temporary 4 inch PVC connection to make dumping easy and spill-free.
Just over four weeks from now, California Here We Come!
