Long long drive back to the USA!
Actually first we filled out water tank which had pretty much emptied because we drove for an hour with our water pump on and the kitchen faucet had wiggled on emptying most of the water.
Although he loves to stop and get out someplace new for a walk. We did that once on this long drive back from Canada to Michigan. It was a short hike to a lookout and then we were back on the road to the Upper Peninsular of Michigan.
Finally we reached the Mackinac Bridge (Link to Wikipedia info on the bridge) it is really really long! Crossing it there were high winds and we were alerted to keep our speed with the trailer to 20 mph. Then is was a short drive to our campground for the night. I had picked it out a few weeks ago as we were going to be staying a few nights and I wanted a nice place. The view is great and the price is only $25 per night.
We were pretty tired so we just relaxed, made dinner and watched some TV.
I tried our trailed "Roast" feature of the convection microwave which uses both heat and 30% microwave power to cook stuff quickly.
It wasn't a large meal so we needed a little snack. We had more fresh cherries so we threw together a cherry crumble using Oatmeal, cherries, sugar and some blueberry sauce. We used the roast feature and it was done in 5 or 6 minutes. It was great but could have used some ice cream.
Our first trip milestone of 1032 miles, that is 1/5 of the way to Alaska.
We are here for 3 nights so now we get to do some fun stuff instead of all driving!
