Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

Goodbye Canada, Hello USA

13 August 2013

Crossing the bridge into Michigan from Canada gave me the vapors. As you can see by the pictures, you are in the right lane, high up and surrounded by trucks. Relieved to make it across without incident. Our drive was 3 1/2 hours with a partial fill up for gas.Our rental car in Toronto was 75L or 20Gal. Cost $100 to fill up at $1.30/L.Don't know how Canadians afford the expensive gas.
Food was also more expensive. Still in all we enjoyed our 2 month visit to the Atlantic Provinces. We especially liked Quebec City and Nova Scotia.
Crossing into USA

St Clair River Port Huron

Back in USA

The KOA is around 5 miles from Port Huron. Upon arrival we asked if we could have a pull thru since the car is still disabled. They gave us a very nice site until Friday and then we move to a backin. This campground has everything in way of sports, activities,rental equipment, store, several eateries etc. It is unlike and probably the nicest KOA we have stayed. Staff very friendly and our mail was awaiting us. They are rather full with over 300 sites including cabins and tent sites. Many families and the kids do not lack for entertainment. They have a pizza and ice cream parlor of which we partook for dinner.

John spend most of afternoon installing kit to bypass the anti theft system and campground loaned him battery charger. Unfortunately, car still not operating. Guess we rent another car as there are fort sights in area we want to visit.
Hopefully when we get to Decatur,IN to have work done on motorhome, we can find a dealer familiar with problem.

This is first major problem in 45,000 miles of travel we have had.

  1. That does look like a nice park! Could almost vacation there if you had kids. Will have to bookmark it. Sorry about the "no fix kit"! How frustrating.
