After a "quick" breakfast at IHOP (with some very Canadian prices) we headed back over the border into the U.S. When we reached the border crossing I misunderstood the sign and didn't get into the RV lane. They asked me if I didn't see the big sign and I basically just told them that I was too stupid to understand it (which was true). They didn't give me too much of a hassle, but they wanted to see each of the kids before they let us proceed. We had to wake Ella and Zoe up to do that. Other than that we didn't have any trouble. After an hour of trying to follow the mapquest directions I printed, I finally decided to stop at WalMart to get another GPS. They don't carry the special RV one that we have, so I couldn't just exchange our broken one. We had a really nice drive through New York and Pennsylvania. It was very beautiful country. We had to go through a lot of small towns, which meant that I got a lot of practice driving this exceptionally wide RV on some very small roads. It took a very long time and we made it to our campground just after dark, which made parking in our campsite quite tricky.
There HAD to be a better way than all these small roads. It was a pretty drive, nevertheless, I would have appreciated a faster drive. This GPS system we picked up seems to prefer small roads.
