Hi, this morning around 9:00 AM a bus took us to Niagara Falls. We were taken to a few locations for views and to the actual falls. Given ponchos and sandals, we walked up in to a part of the falls, still got wet. Later we took a boat ride right up to the falls. ["Maid of the Mist"] That was amazing. And wet.

Bob (from Salem), as I recall you can only board the Maid of the Mist from the Ontario side. How did you get in and are you now locked in a dungeon in Yukon Terr.?

Hi, Gene; Since the blue ponchos are on the Maid of the Mist, we were on the US side. The red ponchos are on the Canadian side. Since my house was nuked, we might just as well take full advantage of full hook ups at your Colorado house when we get turned around.


We have another tour tonight where they sneak us across the Canadian border. If we get locked up, I'll have Bob Cross take care of Dusty and his silver house. I think Bob wants to see what an Ecoboost can do.

I saw a diesel pusher in the camp ground this morning and it tag stating that it has 330 Horse Power; That's 35 ponies less than my F-150.

Hi, tonight our tour bus with ten passengers went to Canada to see Niagara Falls from the Canadian side. Right off of the bat, the border guards didn't like our driver. Was it because he had a beard? Can't Canadians grow beards so they are jealous or something. Our driver was directed to park on the left side while huge tour busses that came over after us went first. We waited for close to an hour on what was supposed to be a four hour tour. Not mentioning what happened to us to prevent a riot or something, everyone refused to spend any money in Canada. No-one spent a dime while we were there and some said they would never come back to Canada. Did I mention that all four of my Goodyear Marathons that failed were made in Canada, not China. Anyway, I did take some pictures. The American border guard did us a huge favor by getting on our tour bus, asking where each couple was from, taking all of our passports, scanning them and returning them right away. So glad to be back on the American side. We used to love Canada, but not now.

Hi, Cool old pictures that you have Neil. I had to wait until I was old to do what you did as a kid. Lucky you.

8-13-2015.

Hi, we left Buffalo, New York area and drove to Alexandria Bay. We stayed at a state campground for two nights. On 8-14-2015 we took a boat ride in the Thousand Islands to Boldt Castle. Lee got off of the boat and toured the castle and island, While Dusty and I stayed on the boat until it went back to the starting point. Dusty was not allowed to go on the island, but allowew3d to ride on the boat. Some old fogies gave us dirty looks because of Dusty, but that is just too bad. Dusty was allowed to ride the boat and he did some barking, but later just laid down quietly. He was better than most children on the boat, but their parents didn't get any dirty looks.

Hi, we made it to Montreal, Canada; The last question of many, was "if I inspect your trailer, will I find anything?" And the answer was a big NO! I won't go into details now, but our two days stay in Canada was not a good one. We are leaving tomorrow morning and going back to the States.

Amish wagon.

Hi, yesterday we passed an Amish wagon, but it was on the wrong side of the street, and it was too late to stop. They sell farm produce. Later, I saw another one on a corner and slid to a stop. [not really, but close] There was a young woman [at my age, they are all young] in the wagon, with a baby. And there was a young girl tending the goods. [about ten years old] They also had their horse tied to a tree, in the shade, and with water. we bought some cucumbers, some cinnamon rolls, and a small loaf of zucchini bread. This cost us $8.00 for all. Everything was very good.

As long as you made it past Canadian Customs you may as well continue your travels in Canada. Weren't you going to stop by CanAm? Maybe things will get better.

Hi, today we went to Costco for a few needed/wanted items. I stayed in the truck with Dusty because it was too hot to leave him alone without air conditioning. Lee came out empty handed. US Costco was going to stop American Express and change to Visa, later this year. Canadian Costco won't accept American Express and they already made their change over, but Canadian Costco changed to Master Card and we don't have that. Also they will gladly take US money at the same rate as Canadian Dollars, so we lose 30% on each transaction. Bacon at Costco cost was as low as $7.00 per pack; Here in Canada it's $17.00 for the same thing. Massive road construction going on now and two times in town was too much. Detours everywhere and we don't read French. Basically the fun factor is not here. So back to the US tomorrow.

Good, Bad, and Ugly.

Hi, the good is the fact that we were able to find a parking spot down town for free until 1:00 PM, have lunch at an outside café, and have pizza, ice cream, and a cookie. Dusty got some pizza crust so he was happy too.

The bad is the fact that a mosquito bit my right eye. [I believe] My eye was swollen almost shut, but no black and blue, so no-one hit me.

The ugly, is me trying to get around with one and a half eyes when two can't read French as it is.
