Sue went out to the truck late last night. Guess what? The tire monitor was going off again on a different tire. We checked the pressure and it was only 5lbs down. Tried to get air at the local station but could not get close enough. Also I noticed that one of the valve stems had a large crack. We decided to continue on anyway. By the way it just kept raining. Finally found a Pilot station and was able to air up all the tires.

When we go to Great Falls we found a tire store to fix the valve stem. In that process we found out that two others we bad including the tire which was low last night. Got all fixed and remounted in the original locations. Yes, it was raining all the time and the trailer had to remain outside. Thanks goodness to the tire monitor again. I do hope this is the end of the tire problems.

Stopped at Shelby, MT and picked up our first mail. We were excited to see what was in the package. After eating lunch in the trailer we went to the public library to use the internet.

It was then to the Sweetgrass and the border crossing. The crossing was a piece of cake. They asked to see our passport and Aggie's papers. Answered questions about alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. That was it.

Please see the pictures of the Alberta visitor center. We Got information on camping and directions for driving through Lethbridge.

We are camped tonight at Bridgeview Campground on north edge of Lethbridge. When we arrived we realized that we had stayed here at least 10 years ago. This is a very nice campground and has wired internet access which I will use in a little well to post some entries.

This was a much more relaxing day. By the way we will be out of Cell coverage while in Canada. Tomorrow's destination is Lake Louise.
