We awoke early this morning in Miles City, Montana, to a winter wonderland.
Because we had already winterized the rig, we were just wanting to head for home.
I will admit to some tense driving moments on the interstate, until a sanding truck appeared and we tucked in behind him.
The only problem was we could only do about 30 mph.
After crawling for a long while, the road cleared up, and traffic was flowing at about 50 mph.
Even though Teresa and I are very honest, and don't try any funny stuff at the border, we are always a little apprehensive about the procedure.
Today's crossing was a real treat !!
We were asked all the usual questions, then the kind agent welcomed us back to Canada, and wished us safe travels.
There was a lot of snow in the fields in Saskatchewan, but only little patches on the highway.
However, we were embarrassed at the state of our roadways.
I am talking huge potholes, that rattled our teeth, and knocked things out of cupboards !!
Our provincial government is spending record amounts on infrastructure, so we are hopeful this will be improved.
The first thing Teresa did was turn on our Canadian cellphone, and started texting family and friends that we were nearly home.
We were thrilled that our daughter was able to come see us for a couple of hours before heading out to another commitment.
She sure got a lot of hugs, and a few gifts !!
After she left, we did a little more unpacking.
We ordered our favorite pizza, took long hot showers, and with heavy eyes, we are heading to bed.
It took us nearly 9 hours to cover those last 300 miles, so we are both exhausted and happy to be back.
It is true, there is no place like home !!
