Au Revoir Canada

Today we said our final goodbyes which was sad, especially to the Yeagers and our beautiful neighbours Cathy and Edward who became good friends. We loaded our truck and hit the road for our big road trip across America. We are driving a Ford 150 truck. It belongs to Aaron (Craig’s Dad) and we are dropping it off in Phoenix, Arizona, where he has a house and spends part of the winter there. We then have to be in LA by the 26th Oct. Today we drove to Regina and then straight south to the border crossing of Port of Regway, which crosses into Montana. We got to the border inspection station but they made us turn around and go back into Canada as John had to hand in his work permit, then back to the US, fill out more forms, answer a few questions and then we were on our way. John was a bit nervous about getting over the border in someone else’s vehicle, but it all went OK. The landscape south of Regina and into Montana was quite different, much flatter, very few trees and lots of oil wells. We headed across into North Dakota and stayed the night at Williston. Travelled approximately 550kms today.
