We made it! From our home, across the U.S. border, to our first waypoint, Port Huron KOA.
The drive was almost six hours and trouble free. We stopped for fuel at the Flying J in Napanee, Ontario. Another stop for lunch at a service centre near Cambridge, Ontario. And then customs.
How I worried about customs.
This was our first time crossing the border with a motorhome. The first time crossing the border with our dog. I prepared all sorts of documents including the vaccination certificate for our golden retriever, reservation confirmations, and various proof of residency documents — just in case.
All we got? Three questions: how many people in the vehicle, where are you from, and do you have any groceries.
That was it. About a minute and we were on our way.
Our first overnight stop was at the Port Huron KOA.
The entrance into the park looks calm in this picture largely because I took the shot at around 9:00pm. When we arrived at around 5:00pm, it was very chaotic. People and RVs everywhere. This was one very busy KOA.
We had a super site for the evening.
The site looks quite large and it is. For a KOA. We had neighbours very tight to the driver’s side of the coach.
Because this park is very large and very busy it is not very peaceful. Lots of activity. For us, however, we were looking forward to Petoskey where we knew it would be a different style of camping. Petoskey would be glamping.
That said, we had a wonderful evening by the coach enjoying the long summer evening with a pizza and a fire.
Our travels will take us to Petoskey and I will fill you in on our journey tomorrow.
Here are a few more pictures from our stopover.
