Had a great sleep and didn’t show my face till after 8.30am…..and was on the road a few minutes later and shortly after that into yet another State this time…

This was my last State and time change so now I can set the clock to eastern time for sure.

I thought I was back in Mexico here passing the toll booth!!!

I really did not know what to expect at the Border crossing after my last incident it would not have surprised me if I had been flagged so I went up to the gate with an open mind….the Officer on duty asked the usual questions and it did not start to well when he asked me what I had bought and was bringing into Canada I assumed he meant booze, cigs, veggies etc. so I told him nothing that is when the lecture started he said how could I be in the States three weeks and not have anything you don’t eat????   This was not going well so I explained that of course I thought he meant any of the things that were taxable or not allowed and yes I did have food.  Then he got really off tangent and told me saying I have nothing was paramount to saying bomb on a plane!!!!  Here we go again I thought….I just said I was sorry yes I had some food..he gave me back my passport and told me to have a nice day!!   No comment!!
