        Our last night here in the the U.S.A. and was very comfortable. Up for my early walkabouts and a couple of coffees. Then secured the coach and hooked up the car, heading north on I-75 at 8 am. A good drive all the way. One minor slow down for a few minutes then, slipped thought Toledo and Detroit so smooth . Stopped at a couple of rest areas to stretch and the last one 15 miles from Port Huron Michigan  shortly after 11 am. Made a bite to eat here and then stopped at Marysville Michigan to top of the fuel in our coach. Arrived at the Blue water bridge and a 5 minute delay to pay the toll. across into Canada and no lineups whatsoever for customs. Answered a couple of questions. Agent said welcome back and away we went. total of a 3 minute stop perfect.

         Our next stop was to top up our propane tank by Stratford. always a good price here 62.9 cents a litre. ($2.37 CANADIAN a gallon). Our last propane fill up was in Lake Whitney Texas at $3.00 US ( $3.97 Canadian a gallon.) Some things are cheaper in Canada, not much though.

           We pulled into Camp Awesome in Plattsville right when we wanted 3:30 pm. All set up satellite dish and all now to relax for a bit then head out to the Trails Edge Tavern  one of our favourite places just down the road. Especially for their amazing chicken wings. And tonight just happens to be wing night, Yeah!!!
