Up, up and away and back to our house in the desert, feels so great !

Where are we today ?
        Starting our day off early we up at 3 am. No problem we just went to bed at 8 o'clock last night. Lotsa time for some computing and coffee before the Stratford Airporter arrived at 4:10 am to pick us up (no Al he did not know you has only been there for 3 months). Mild clear morning and no traffic, 30 minutes later arrived at the Region of Waterloo International airport.

        Quick check in, it's a small plane (3 seats wide)and  small airport we left on time 6:30 am.

West side Lake Michigan
         Arrive in Chicago 1 hour later and then...  Customs, security checks, more checks, lots of walking then a train from terminal 5 to 3. this took 2.5 hours, but we had time anyway. They confiscated our 2 bananas and one apple we had packed for lunch but let us keep our chicken sandwiches, celery carrots and cheese, so we did get to eat some of our lunch anyway
many water towers in Chicago
our small plane from
Kitchener
       Board the flight to Phoenix, this plane much bigger 6 seats wide but we had seats in the middle of each side on the same row. So sharing our lunch the people in between just passed it over to us.  We arrived at 12.10 pm. No rushing now just hang out read and compute for a while. Leave Phoenix at 2:30 and arrive Yuma at 3:35pm

        At the Yuma airport Ray and Cindy (of Ray and Cindy's Rv Travels)were kind enough to pick us up at the airport . Stopped at Dave and Mandy's Place who are camped in their park as well and treated everyone to a wonderful Buffet at lin's in Yuma. We all needed to eat anyway.

  11. Welcome back! Crossing from Mexico I once asked Customs why they cared if I had veggies with me since each state is different. Thought they should only be concerned with Homeland Security, not Calif. produce. Was sent to secondary inspection, and still not knowing what the hassle is with an apple.

    1. We not sure either, but it is what it is. Not a big deal, either leave it in Ontario or leave it at the US customs.

  12. I bet you are thrilled to be back in the heat. The balance of your stay down here should be nice. And the slow drive back for Ontario should be nice too.
