    Hey Darrell - Sorry to hear all that you are having to go thru to get home. The main thing of course is to GET HOME, and do so safely and healthy. Hope the border crossing goes easily and quickly for you, keep us posted on your progress..............

    All the best, Terry..............(aka BankShot)

    Truly a bummer, Darrell, that you have to eat all your Cajun food too soon. I'm with you on enjoying Louisiana cuisine. Love the Jambalaya and Gumbo.
    As far as gas goes, if the politician's hot air doesn't speed you along, guess you have no choice but to sneak into a gas station enroute to home. Safe travels home and stay warm.

    Safe travels home Darrell, yeah I agree your type of traveling (and most Rvers) would be minimal risk.

    Update: We crossed thew border yesterday but I could not reply because our Canadian Cell service provider had cut office staff to eliminate crowding. We could not get through. Finally were able to get our service re-activated today.

    Anyway, The Canadian Border Services were awesome! It took us less than five minutes and that including waiting in the lineup that didn't exist. A young lady checked our passports, asked for the date we entered the US, asked how much money we spent, I handed her the receipts for the excess booze we were bringing back, She handed them back with our passports and said make sure you quarantine for 14 days. Have a safe trip!

    This is the first time I have not paid duty on anything brought back. I smiled, shoved my jaw back into place and drove off.

    I had heard stories that they would take your temp, have you tested etc. So much for media hype.

    We are now in a "self imposed" 14 day quarantine.

    Perhaps the Canadian Border Services figured you will be paying anyways with the 14 day quarantine. Stay safe and we will all get through this together.

    Here in Australia its actually slowing we have gone from a 30% infection rate down to 3%. Currently we have 900 cases in Queensland with 2 deaths and the infection rate stabilised a few weeks ago to a point where we had on 30 confirmed cases in the last 24 hours. We are being told here that the rubber hits the road when recovery numbers overlap infection numbers the graphs show this is about 2 weeks off barring any massive spike.

    Stay safe all of you.

    The best news for us is USA March 2022 is officially a go!!! After all this we have decided that we want to do a good size trip back to our favourite destination.

    I think March will be a good time to visit either of the planned trips. It heat and humidity should not be overly oppressive in Louisiana nor should it be too cool along the Pacific Northwest. Make sure you indulge in a Crayfish Boil. March is the best month for Crayfish.

    Good to hear that you folks can possibly see the light at the end of the tunnel re COVID 19 !! We have two days left to serve completing our Mandatory Self Isolation. The only one that is finding it difficult is our dog Mimi. From eight to ten walks a day to just being able to stick her nose outdoors to complete what is necessary is not making her happy.
