May 14, 2007 - Our Alaskan adventure has begun!!!

We're on our way! We left Bellingham this morning at 10:10 without getting any proof of insurance - we figured if it was going to be a problem, we would just turn around at Sumas and head back to the Bellingham RV Park to wait for the Insurance Co. to mail the proof to us. The road to Sumas was very good. We had been told by one our our fellow RV'ers to fill up with gas at the last gas station on the right in Sumas before the Canadian border post - which we did, it was $3.39 a gallon there and $3.54 at all the others. Whilst Tony was...

The warm cereal was actually quite nice considering it was damn cold and wet. We took the tent down and stored it like a big wet burrito, and front crawled out of camp around 8.00 am. We rode with a few...

Jun 6, 2005 - We Made It !

We arrived....this is Canada! Border crossings from the northern states into Canada are usually busy, crowded, and sometimes a pain in the ____ ...well you know. We had Sam's papers ready (something in all the trips we have made they never ask for); I had my birth certificate, and our new passports. Remember you cannot come back into the States without a passport now. And remember that Alaska IS part of the United States.....hehehe People do forget that, some people think Alaska is only a territory. In fact when we lived there, we have...
