Review: Edo Japan Noodlefull Bowls- Plus a Giveaway ( Canada only)

Last night we arrived late in the city of Saskatoon, and hadn't had supper. We knew Edo Japan had their limited time Noodlefull Bowls still available till November 7th, and Gerry especially was anxious to try them, so we unhooked the SUV from the RV and made a drive to Midtown Plaza where they are located in the food court there. The staff there is super friendly....

We also asked if we could even have something for our dog and they were able to oblige with some chicken strips fried on the grill.
We ordered the Noodlefull beef bowl as well as food for tonight's supper- and took back to the RV to eat.

We frequent Edo Japan when there are ones on our travels and highly recommend if you haven't tried them to try them out. There is also an opportunity here to win a $25 gift card from them, by entering our giveaway below.

A random draw will be held by on October 31, 2016 from all entries received. Canada only.

On The Road Again- Heading West, The South

Left home yesterday around 1 pm- wanted to wait till Friday's mail had come in- was expecting some packages and such, so glad we waited, but it was dark when we got into Saskatoon, Sask. last night.
Boon docked  in Cabela's parking lot. ( Had gone inside to ask if it was ok and give them our plate #)
Overcast and frost on the grass this morning.

We stopped for gas to refill 20 minutes outside of Saskatoon that costed $200. A free camp spot was what we needed after paying that for gas, so nice that Cabela's allows overnight stays in their lot here.
There is no snow here at all in Saskatoon,not like back home where we have 2-3 feet already. The road to get here was a 7 hour drive with RV, all clear.
Made a stop at the dollar store this morning and Gerry had a return he had to do at Canadian Tire, as well. We also needed to stock up on more duck strips for Jakey, ( which can't be bought in the US and he can't do without them it seems! His addiction!)
Just getting everything secured again and off towards Drumheller, Alberta - where it's a 4 1/2 hour drive to get there.
Talk later....

2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Her

We've rounded up our favorite holiday gift ideas of 2016 that are perfect for every gal on your list! Treat the women in your life to something special this year. Some great ideas include:

Starfrit The Rock One-Pot -


The "One-Pot Meal" concept is quite amazing and results will surprise her. All she has to do is put all ingredients in the same pot (deep pan), whether it be protein, vegetables, carbs, herbs & spices, and cook together by simmering the mixture to get a complete meal. That's not all. The best thing in all of this is that you only have one pot to clean!

The Rock cookware is unique because of its Rock Tec technology that modifies the cooking surface and makes it ultra durable. It has a non-stick surface three times better than competition and resists to scratches and abrasion. She's gonna love this pot.

Starfrit The Rock ( Electric) Multi-Pot-

The 4.8 quart (4.5L) Starfrit The Rock Multi-Pot is a must-have appliance in her kitchen. The adjustable temperature controller allows her to prepare a wide range of meals - soup, stews, chili, stir-fry, sauce and can even be used as a food-warmer.

The electric Multi-Pot is the ideal partner for her holiday parties too - it will keep food warm and ready to be served at all times. The Multi-Pot has an extra-thick base for even heat distribution allowing your favorite meals to cook quickly
with less energy. A must have for any woman who loves to cook!

Ninja Coffee Bar System-

o    New Ninja Coffee Bar System is a better than a coffee house experience, at home, that you can’t get anywhere else.
o    Provides integrated frother, six brew sizes, five brew types, including the Ninja exclusive CafĂ© Forte – which amplifies the natural subtle flavors of your favorite coffee, for a sensationally different and delicious coffee experience!
o    MSRP: $199

o    This would be a great gift for HER because making coffee has never been so easy along with so many different types and sizes to choose from. The Ninja Coffee Bar System makes you the barista.

Set Backs

The last few days have been to say the least, not the greatest, but we're trying to be positive.

We got an early winter this year- dumped on with snow and more coming. We were hoping to leave to go west, then south, today. Yesterday we spent most of the day loading up the RV and the day before as well. Found out yesterday morning our water lines were frozen. Problem fixed though. Second problem came yesterday when we found out we had a fridge that wasn't working. We had others tell us it needs to run for 24 hours before we'll get it cool- but nope that didn't work. So, today, the day we were suppose to leave, we are stuck home. We have to take the RV down to the propane dealer today and have them look at it, and hoping it will be a cheap fix. It's snowing again. There is pretty much single lane traffic on Main Street downtown because of the snow, but we need to get it to the other end of town, and the other option is going down snowy hills. So think we'll more than likely attempt the drive through town. I'm not sure yet- 

We had to as well take most things out of the RV too that we need in the house again, call the town to get them to come turn our water back on, call to have services that were placed on hold, back on. Yeah, it's been one of those " not so great" last few days. We're still planning on going south- we're just unsure when we'll get out of here.

October 17-( update)
Looks like we need a new fridge for the RV. It's a big expense that will be at least $2600+ with the install. Not good for us. A big set back for sure. We just have to wait now for it to arrive. Should be a few days, then we can leave.
