Last Minute Details

 
We're now in Mount Vernon, Washington doing last minutes chores.   The SUV is clean and ready for inspection.  The Funfinder has been emptied of all its fresh foods.  We have eaten every veggie and fruit we had on board.   Tonight we had tomatoes, tostadas with salad and cheese.   In the car today we ate apples and bananas.   I know there is a list of what is good to go but I'd rather not deal with it. 
 
Tomorrow makes for a quick stop in Bellingham at Fred Meyer's for dry goods and then some inexpensive gas.   Yesterday we filled up for $3.69 and today was $3.89, still way under the usual $4.10 we see on along the highways.
 
There is a casino here and we are going to treat ourselves to an hour of gambling before hitting the sack.  I want to get an early start because we have some laundry to do when we get to Vancouver before taking the ferry on Thursday morning.
 
As soon as we arrive at the rv park in West Vancouver I will update the blog with the gory details of our Canadian border crossing.  :)

  1. Norma says to bring your dirty laundry here. Crossing will be a piece of cake (I think you can bring cake across),

  4. You can bring veggies and fruits ( as long as they have no seeds ) into Canada. I always load in the US to bring home a fridge full at lower prices. But then you won't be cooking while on the Island. That RV park is pretty run down or at least it was when we stayed there once. Good price to store for $18.00/night.

    1. Which RV park is it? The one under the Lions Gate Bridge? It used to be pretty fancy.

    2. Yes that is the one, the only one in West Van. There are a lot of fulltimers living there and the sites look pretty bad plus they are close together. We stayed there only the once and never again. Perhaps it is under new management and has improved. It looks great from the bridge but not close up.
