We're overnighting in an RV park in Kelso, Wa. The TV weather girl is calling for snow overnight. What's with that? The better news is that tomorrow (Wednesday) is calling for 50 degree + temps. So....a cool evening (with snow) followed by rain and higher temps tomorrow. We'll take whatever comes.

We left yesterday afternoon and drove the few kilometres to the Peace Arch Border Crossing. Navigating the new road in - and the 'S' curves away from - the USA NEXUS line was quite something, certainly with our long load. No problems though. That new Homeland Security System is, I guess, one engineer's belief that by building 'S' curves, the bad guy - or girl - won't easily storm at high speed through the border. Nice border crossing renovation though.
NOTE: For those of you who follow the blog, and recall my USA border incident a month or so ago, our border crossing was seamless. I was not detained for having stolen my own truck. LOL
Yesterday began with completing the move into the fiver, hooking up, attaching the swivel wheel, driving into the cul de sac and completing all tasks prior to leaving @ 1:30 pm. With the motorcycle loaded, we handed our house keys to select neighbours - the house sitter already has hers - and away we drove. Finally heading south!!!

|Quite a good system....and a good alternative to hauling the motorcycle with us.|
When we left the Bellingham area, there was no snow in the north end of the city but this is a shot at the south end of the city. How interesting....and beautiful.

Trouble free motoring to date and, albeit early in our destination to the sunny desert climes, we hope for more of the same in the coming days.
Thanks for dropping in.
