Michigan to Milton, Ontario Canada

We left Lakeport State Park this morning, stopping to stock up at groceries and adult beverages before entering Canada at the Port Huron/Sarnia border crossing.

This is the biggest border crossing facility we have experienced so far, with the most modest facility being the one at the Top of the World Highway, between Chicken Alaska and Dawson City, Yukon Territory. In any event, we got through without any trouble although we were not greeted very warmly by the Canadian customs officer... apparently they are not nearly as interested in seeing new faces in Sarnia as they are at the Top of the World Highway.


Our drive was uneventful and we enjoyed the attractive Ontario countryside as we made our way towards the Mississauga-Toronto area, where my cousins live. We are actually staying at the Milton Heights Campground, which is about 25 miles from Mississauga, because there are very few RV parks close to Mississauga. This is a very large RV park with a variety of sites that all seem to be at least good if not excellent. We have a very friendly next door neighbor, who is pulling a T@B camper similar to the one shown here, and also hauling a motorcycle in his truck bed. Anyway, we've been chatting with him about our Alaska trip, he's been there also, and just relaxing.

Tomorrow, my cousins will pick us up and off we'll go over to their house to catch up and spend some time together. Unfortunately, it's not looking like we'll be able to get together with the Mosbaughs... we haven't been able to get our schedules aligned. It's too bad, but sometimes things just don't work out as we would like.
