Day 27 July 10, 2011 (Brian)
9:00 Got up in good time for once… Last day. Daynen had, once again, started packing up the trailer. You’d think he enjoys it. Trailer was hooked up by 9:45. Kids were playing on an old army tank at the playground.
Got gas and a lovely Amaretto flavoured coffee.
12:00 Went to WalMart in Chesterfield, Michigan just north of Detroit. Gotta do some shopping don’tcha know?
3:00 Left WalMart for home. Got off the interstate just before the boarder to get gas and couldn’t get back on as the two closest entrances to the highway to Canada were closed. We could get off but not on. At one point it almost looked like we’d have to go back to the entrance by the Walmart that we were just at. Eventually we just turned around and picked up the detour sights. Had to stop at a lift bridge to let some boats through.
Almost got on the bridge to Canada but then I saw the Duty Free Shop. Pulled in there and got some stuff.
5:00 Pulled out of the Duty Free onto the entrance to the bridge to Canada and man was it packed. I thought that it was customs then I realized that it was just for the toll for the bridge. It got worse when we realized that the cars were lined up all the way across the bridge. Uuuugh!! Then we realized that this is why we usually don’t cross the boarders on a Sunday afternoon.
5:52 Crossed the border.
5:53 Had to tell Michelle that the speed limit is only 50 Kilometers per hour, not miles. Had to reminder her again. Then she said that she’s only going 50. I had to remind her that she was doing 50 Miles per hour. J
8:00 Stopped for ice cream on the 401… just to get the kids wired up.
10:30 Arrived at Allyce’s to pick up my car (which she borrowed for a bit while we were away).
10:45 Pulled in the drive way… Odometer read 10817.3 KM.
