We did have a minor mechanical issue leaving Manitoulin, the bus did not want to shut off so when we got to the Soo KOA we had to get it to shut off so we disconnected the fuel shutoff solenoid to shut it down. After some assistance from Thomas & Jim we were able to get it functioning again so we departed on the rest of our trip accompanied by Jim & Nancy Brookshire and Thomas & Nancy Rembert. They had been staying on the US side of the border until we met up on the road to head on up to Wawa.
Fran and I had been going there for years and our friends wanted to travel along so we shared a few of our back county spots with them. We stayed at the Wawa RV Park for a few nights and during the days we took the Jeep up to Steephill Reservoir and to the blueberry fields picking berries and hunting for mushrooms.
