Good to see people made it home safely.

And now Bob doesn't have to wear a sweatshirt at 2 in the afternoon.

Wow! 11 hrs!! Thats to bad Peter, when I made my trip from Essex CT to home 1.5 years ago, it took 8hrs (in **** rain the whole way), I was never so happy to hit Syracuse (lol) I figured I was almost home....

Why 2 hrs at the border? Usually getting into Ontario from NY state is eaaaasy.

Hello everyone, just a quick note to let everyone know Mick and I got home ok. A lot of traffic at the border and duty free was very busy...no thanks to seven busloads of people. The car ran amazing and I'm loving my new gas mileage. Getting home from Bill'* was 792 km (495 miles for you Americans) and I never stopped for gas! Have to go unpack now and get back to reality!

And.... after a 13 hour trip, I'm (and hopefully Gonneville is, too ) home safely. The first two hours went well, but we ended up taking a wrong turn into NYC. So, we decided to roll with it and tour NYC a bit. We saw Ground Zero (albeit very briefly), we battled the NYC traffic, in an F-350 crew cab none-the-less, oh, and of course we got lost. Again. After that, we took a side trip to visit my Grandmother'* grave in Bethlehem, PA. I'd like to thank Brian once again for letting me see her; I never get out to PA anymore, so that was real special. After that, everything was smooth sailing. We stopped for dinner at Quizno'*, which was actually really good, and they had these super salty chips that I'm still trying to find around Granville. So, PA was smooth sailing for the most part, but then we got into Ohio (around 11:15), and Brian got tired. So he pulled off and let me drive. Little did we know that it was one of those STUPID exits without a west-bound on-ramp. . So we made another detour on Rt. 331, which was a TINY road, especially for a Crew Cab F-350. The drive was very scenic, but I was mostly concentrating on making time. Heh, let'* just say I had a bit of fun in the twisties . We ended up getting to my place around 1:15, and Brian left around 1:30. Fun, Fun, Fun. It was awesome meeting all of you guys, and I can't wait to see you all next year... Or even sooner than that?

Oh yeah, and to all my Canadian home boys....

EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

Finally made it home about 3:30 AM!!!! We somehow took a wrong turn in Michigan, went about 20 miles out of our way. Didn't even catch it untill we got to a rest stop and found out that we were heading west on I 94 towards Detroit, we needed I 69 towards flint.... quick turn around and we were all good!!

Stephanie is an excelent nagivator, we just got messed up on some of the descriptions that Google Maps gave us.
