Back in the lower 48
We are glad to be back where dollars are dollars, not loonies or toonies. Â Miles are miles and not kilometers, etc. Â Since our Visa card doesn’t have a chip in it, we could not pay for fuel at the pump. Â So I would have to go inside and ask that the pump be turned on. Â Before they would turn the pump on, they said they had to HOLD my credit card. Â I said I would be glad to stand at the checkout until he finished pumping, but that would not do. Â Finally on our last day in Canada, we stopped for a last fillup. Â The young girl inside would not let me stand there with my card, she would not turn on the pump until SHE held the card. Â Finally I gave her the card but continued standing in front of her. Â Â When Greg finished pumping and I was signing the receipt, she said “you’re a bit crabby today”. Â Oh brother, Greg thought he was going to have to come in the store to separate us.
We made it through the border crossing without any trouble however. Â As a matter of fact, we had the cutest young border agent. Â I started to tell him so, but Greg said I might appear suspicious, considering I just had the altercation with that GIRL at the gas station.
We are enjoying interstate driving rather than two lane roads which are not in the best of shape. Â We are in Livingston Montana tonight, and after having 100 degree weather a couple of days in BC, we are enjoying 75 degree temps today with low humidity.
