Anyway back on the road and I lost another hour in time difference somewhere today so now 2 hours in front of Vancouver time…..I have had supper, showered found a good spot in the Wal-Mart parking lot to stay the night I will just drive up to the local McDonalds and post this and then come back here park, tea and a movie.

The plan hopefully is to be in Niagara Falls by Sunday and stay with my friends Joy and Colin for a couple of days and a little hair trim too please Joy!!!
