Not cold enough to freeze our water system, but cold enough to urge us on to warmer temps.
We were shooting for a noon departure, and only missed our deadline by a half hour or so.
The condo is clean, clean, clean. Floors are polished, bathrooms sparkling, and all appliances are gleaming.
I am new to towing our car behind us, so I am happy to report that our Sunfire towed perfectly.
In fact, I believe the motorhome had even better roadside manners with the car in tow, as even though it was quite windy, we didn't have the side to side sway, we normally do on windy days.
On the plus side, our border crossing was quick and easy. The agent went to Teresa's side and asked her all the questions. Where are you heading, do you have a permanent Canadian address, how long will you be in the States, etc.
It must have been Teresa's charm, because he was soon smiling, and joking, and asked permission to board our rig. We were travelling with hardly any food, but we did have one tomato on hand. No problem, he checked it out and said it was grown in the good ol' US of A, and we could keep it !
We made it to the Minot Walmart about 6:30 PM ( Yes, we stopped for a final visit to Tim Horton's in Weyburn, where we lost the better part of an hour ). We could not believe how busy this Walmart is. The parking lot was full, and still is.
Teresa was tuckered out, and wanted to organize our rig a little better, so I ran in and grabbed a few items for tonight and breakfast in the morning.
We have an internet connection, thanks to a local restaurant. We have just finished watching a movie, and can hardly keep our eyes open.
Thanks for all the best wishes and warm comments the past few days. It doesn't seem real to us yet. Every now and then, we will look at each other and say " Can you believe we are doing this "
Judging by the smile on our faces, I guess it really is happening !!
