      Up nice and early this morning. Got our coffees consumed and my last walkabout town  this year for a mile or so.  Back home by 8 am secure our coach stored our satellite dish hooked up the car and were in the road by 9 am as planned.
      A nice easy 2 hour drive to the border crossing at Lewiston New York. And this was one of the easiest and quickest crossings ever even with the line up. We stopped in line and in no time we were at customs. This agent scanned our passports and asked if we were Canadian citizens (yup) where are your going? (Lazy Lakes resort for the weekend, then make our way to Arizona) When are you you returning to Canada/? (April 10th) Have a good trip. Even with the line up I timed it was 7 minutes and we were across the border. wow ! That was it he did not ask any other questions. Now we have a freezer full of food that is allowed, 15 bottles of homemade wine  and a dozen or  so honey crisp apples. all allowed according to the website.
a decent line up at customs went quickly
      Next we stopped at Smoking Joes to fill the coach and car with gas ($2.74 a gallon, .93 cents a liter Cdn) and propane 21.5 gallons ($2.44 A gallon)- 92. centst a litre Can.) The most propane we have ever fuelled. We do have a 100 lb propane tank that holds 23 gallons, I knew it was getting low! We saved a bunch of money right here.
    Then checked into Lazy lakes Resort another membership park with no overnight fees, including free wifi. Before noon , got set up and enjoyed a light tasty lunch.
this be our spot
       Ok now I went shopping and saved even more a 6 lb chicken for supper to cook only $5:95 US stocked up with beer and booze heck we saved  almost $160.00 right here. This is like getting paid to travel south.
        Now we enjoyed a nice sunny afternoon 65F and comfortable in the sun reading outside for a while as our chicken was getting all nicely browned and crispy on our Weber Q.
        Our friends Bill and Barb came in and we went to visit with them for a bit while our chicken was cooking, so nice to see them again. We will see more of them over this fun weekend.
it was a decent afternoon in the sun
Our Weber Q doing it's job
enjoying more Jack Reacher escapades 
our chicken is done even has a pop up thingy
to tell me it's done
       Now just add to our tasty salad and we had a feast, we do love our chicken and lotsa leftovers is good. No soup this time with the bones , no fridge our freezer space, sad, but we will enjoy more chickens and more soup soon.
this sure hit the spot
      Then after dishes done I took the garbage out and noticed a few sites decorated for this Halloween weekend here and lit up, There will be lots more for the big day on Saturday .

    This is always a fun busy weekend here and couple of million kids having a ball and about 1/2 a million adults getting right into this whole Halloween stuff as well. Ya know lotsa lotsa people here .
    Any how this is our first day on the road on our southern migration, we have been enjoying this weekend here with friends for well over 15 years and so nice to see everyone again over the next couple of days. Monday we will make our way further south slowly, What's the hurry? We are at home wherever we are , and will enjoy some new places this year.
     Thanks for  joining us today, we had fun and hope you did too.
