Canada, here we come!

The stops along the way-

------------------ Cross Border ------------

------------------ Cross Border ------------

Problems/Annoyances (Consult YouTube, laugh, move forward, and have fun)- Check engine light just once this summer, staying cool when coming home thru Oregon and Northern California, going 60 when everyone else is going 80, tow Jeep needed a oil gauge replaced, miss seeing PMC bears, cab is loud when driving (we yell at each other to talk), missing WR Baseball, windshield bug destroyer, Max is not allowed in USA National Parks, gas prices in Canada, WiFi is bad at most RV parks...

Loving/Nice Surprises (What we have enjoyed and are proud of so far)- We have fixed "some" more motor home issues, we have been resilient, everyone is extremely nice and friendly, beautiful camping locations, Max is traveled well again, we love our comfy king-size bed, our meals in the rig are fantastic, checking off bucket list items, Northern California, Oregon Coast, Washington, Canada is beautiful, enjoyed our Direct TV Stream TV service, having our own shower & bathroom, pulling our Jeep was easy and very convenient, everywhere we went people were nice and friendly, Max was allowed on a train / sky gondola / canoe / ferry / and glacier...
