It cost $21.40 to put Sherman on the ferry, and another $9.80 for the little car. A bit pricey, but cheaper than driving around. They had three ferries running, and they were all full. We were lucky to get on the first boat but there wouldn't have been much of a wait for another one.

First thing we did in Plattsburgh was to try to get propane. We're not really low, but it's cheaper here than in Canada. Plus, I can't fill up our propane in Ontario and we'll be there for just over a month. That province has the most strict propane laws in all of North America and our tank needs to be inspected before they'll fill it. I refuse to pay for the inspection, so I can't fill up there. Anyhow, the propane place here in Plattsburgh that we've been to before was temporarily closed due to a malfunction in their fill hose, so they directed us to another place which is where we are headed first thing this morning.
Then, we went to Walmart to stock up on a few things because we are heading in to expensive, heavily taxed Canada.
Later in the afternoon it started to rain. We had originally planned on doing some more driving yesterday, but we decided to stay in Plattsburgh. I don't like driving in the rain, and it was getting late anyhow. The Walmart parking lot was super busy, and there were at least 20 RV's of all shapes and sizes already parked there. Again, there are a lot of "no overnight parking" and "no camping" signs up, but I don't think they're enforced. We knew of a parking lot at a medical building where we could overnight, so we headed over there. Overnighting at a Walmart can be convenient sometimes, but we've learned that there's usually a better option.
So we're headed off to get propane, and then we've got a long driving day ahead because we want to be in Ottawa this afternoon, and Ruth's Dad's this evening. So about 180 miles (288 kms) to go!
