Anchorage

Wet, light, and cold.... so far :)

The apartments are really nice, and all of my co-workers are cool. My pups are happy just to be out of the truck, but despite that- it was an awesome trip. I have many, many, many pictures to post on flikr.

Everyone did great on the drive. It was my first time going to another country, and I am glad the transition went smoothly, hehe. We spent about an hour in Canadian customs with our trailer being midly searched (they just opened the back looked in, then went through my purse and stuff) and about two minutes in US customs. I was glad to be back on our soil. We didn't even have to get out of our truck, lol...

"Do your dogs have their shots?" Asks the older US border patrol gentleman through the window.

"Yes, would you like to see their papers?"

::pause:: "Nah.... I believe you. Have a safe trip, oh and you might wanna sign your passport there Virginia...."

We laughed and drove off. That easy. I think it's a requirement to not have a sense of humor if you work in Canadian customs. Granted, I have never been through any other customs so maybe it's just how all Americans are treated?

Anyhoo... I have the internet now so I can once again chat online, send pictures, and all that wonderful goodiness. Sorry it's been a couple months since I have been connected to some of you. I miss everyone, and I think about you guys all the time.

To those of you who are sticking it out, and riding through my virtual nonexistence- THANK YOU!!!

Until we meet again,
Virginia
