Trailer saves the summer… but maybe not our reputations
The ups and downs of renting a trailer
Sharon Donaldson, our Features & Promotions Manager, took a moment out of her busy day getting ready for the Great Outdoors and DIY Weekend (including the Fall Cottage Life Show) to share this dispatch from the cottage:
Well our big new thing at the cottage this year was that we finally gave in mid-way through the week where everyone (about 15 people) were up and rented a trailer. Best decision ever. We were going through major sleep deprivation and can’t even blame it on babies. Just lots of people with differing schedules. So we went into town to the used trailer lot, and they delivered it and saved our vacation.
Evan (5 years old) was in heaven and he appointed himself the tour guide. Everyone who arrived at the cottage afterwards was offered a tour.
We ignored all the jokes about being trailer trash. We loved it and will do it again. It’s our mobile bunkie solution!
Thanks Sharon! And here’s another shot of Sharon and the family at the cottage—enjoying a little time on the water.
Do check out all the fantastic programs Sharon and the rest of our show team has put together for the Great Outdoors and DIY Weekend, November 25-27, including these kid favourites: the Haliburton Forest sled dogs, a kids’ woodworking centre, indoor ziplining— even Santa will be there to hear the little ones” Christmas wishes!
