Before I write about what a great day we had today..I need to reveal some news...After much deliberation and number crunching we made some major decisions with regards to our beloved "BIGDAWG AND FREEWAY"..
For those of you who know us personally..you all know how much we love the RVing lifestyle...but we needed to make some drastic choices...so for the next few years there will be no more RVing for us ..we have traded our 'BIGDAWG AND FREEWAY'...and purchased a new 'FREEWAY'..our plan is to eventually purchase a new 'BIGDAWG' so for the next few years we will be doing road trips but staying in hotels...there will still be blogging and adventures for us..just not RVing adventures.
So as we temporarily say 'so long ' to RVing..we say 'HELLO' to our new 'FREEWAY'..one day he will be our TOAD but for now he is just simply our 'FREEWAY'...thanks for the memories..we will miss it..but we will be back!!!
Now onwards to our adventure today...through the wonders of the internet we have followers of our blog and I in turn follow many..or you could say I am an 'internet creeper'..either way you call it..'creeper or stalker'..we have met some very nice people and today was no exception...Our new found friends are Donna and Ralph and Norm and Chris..they were staying at Thousand Trails in Birch Bay for the past few days..today was the last day we would have been able to meet up..(they are headed to Alaska for the summer)..so we are always up for some new found friends.
Our morning started early..we heard on the radio that there was long border line ups..we headed towards the Sumas Border Crossing..there was a very large line up..four cars in front of us!!...for once the radio was wrong..since we had so much time we headed south towards Burlington and Camping World..we need some new fold up chairs for our afternoon at the beach.
We stopped at a rest area on the way north for a picnic lunch and then we were off to visit our new 'friends'..we came bearing gifts..wine, a stuffed moose and a loaf of cranberry nut bread and pumpkin loaf..we figure if they don't like us we can bribe them with gifts...Needless to say the visit went very well..such a warm welcome we received..thank you for a great afternoon..it was great to meet you all..and safe travels to you as you head North to Alaska!!
