Saturday May 3
We left Alex’s house in Watertown at about 8am. Drove to the Walmart Supercenter and bought a bunch of groceries and other items that we’re going to need during the month that we know will be more expensive in Canada. Then, we filled up the gas tank for $150. At current exchange rates, it worked out to about $1.02 CAN per litre, so that’s still quite a bit cheaper than we will be paying in Canada.
We had no problems at the border, although the border guard sure did ask a lot of questions. They already had 2 other RV’s pulled off to the side doing further inspection, and I think he wanted to pull us over too, so I think we were lucky that they were already busy. Anyhow, he waved us through, and we’re now back in Canada.
We’re going to spend the next 3-4 weeks staying at Ruth’s parents and doing some minor repairs to Sherman. We’ll also do some visiting with friends in Ottawa, and then we’ll be off to see Lindsey and Justin in Nova Scotia and PEI for the month of June.
I won’t bother posting regular updates here until we get ready to leave towards the end of May.
