Aug 3, 2019 - Day 41

London Ontario to Brantford, Ontario 68 miles, 17.4 average and 1340 feet of climb Today was actually a really beautiful day for riding. Started out the the low 60's and ended up in the low 80's. Mostly flat but we stopped a really nice farm stand and had fresh baked apple tarts. Also stopped and a nice dutch restaurant for lunch (had a BLT) and then had maybe 15 miles on a really nice cycle path perfect day of riding. Tomorrow we head to Niagara Falls and a day off. I think I am wearing out my shorts so took another ride after we got to...

Aug 3, 2019 - Day 39

Day 39 Birch Run MI to Ontario Canada 91 miles. 1345 of climb and 15.85 average so today we crossed in to Canada, They closed down the main bridge/hwy to allow us to cross but unfortunately we could not stop to take any pictures. There are some posted on the ABB website if you are interested. The riding for the last few days has been fairly flat and as usual mostly cornfields and soybeans. I had no idea this country used so much corn. I suspect some of it may be used for ethanol production? Anyway we ended up cruising along the lakefront at...

Jul 16, 2014 - Fort Gratiot, MI - Scenic Drive Along Lake Huron

(Ron Writing) Weather was pretty nice today. We left Port Huron about 11 AM and headed east on MI-25, which follows closely along the east side of Saginaw Bay and then south along Lake Huron. The first part of the drive was through farm country. The land is very flat and we saw a variety of vegetable crops and lots of potatoes. We stopped by a farm stand that had two little refrigerators with a variety of veggies. Elena found very reasonably priced veggies (5# bag of potatoes for $1.50; 3# bag of onions for $1.50; 50¢/cucumber). I had fun...

Jun 19, 2014 - Port Huron

We are hoping for some sun today, it did clear and was beautiful along the river front in downtown Port Huron. This is an old town with many victorian houses and buildings and a long park along the river. Canada is close on the other side, much industrial development there and there were freighters along the shore. We saw a large sail boat being transported on a lift by remote control from the storage building, across the road, into the slip. This was a huge movable crane that was being controlled by a remote, the worker was just walking...

2014 Eagle trip

Jun 1, 2014 - Michigan

We finally left Elkhart on Wednesday, the 28th, with IRVing completely fixed. Thank heaven. Drove from one end of I-69 in Michigan to almost the other end, Port Huron which is 10 minutes to Lake Huron. Planned to spend just one night here but fell in love with this KOA so stayed four nights and are leaving today for KOA at Niagara Falls, Ontario. This KOA is huge and oriented to family groups as has cabins, tent sites, RV Sites, Kamp Kitchens and Pavilions. Just the other side of the fence is a Sports Park. This weekend was Fairy Tale...

Jul 27, 2013 - Plan "B" - as in BE flexible

Did you ever have one of those days where nothing went according to plan? Well, for us that day was Saturday, but what a great day just the same. We headed out late morning when the weather looked like it might be giving us a break. The re-plan was to make it up into Lake Huron to Port Sanilac to be a little ahead of things in case Sunday turned out to be too rough to travel. We entered Lake St. Clair under some dark clouds and the occasional drizzle, but the lake was relatively calm and the crossing was pretty easy. However, the top of...

From BP to the UP!

Jul 21, 2013 - Port Huron KOA

Today we are back to where our trip began. We are at the KOA at Port Huron. We stopped here the first night on our way west, and we are back to relax before heading home. We went to the Angry Bull for dinner and are having a campfire. The weather is beautiful and so is this campground. We have been watching the kids skateboarding, bike riding, swimming, at the batting cages, or at the go-cart track. This is a very happening place for kids. We have really enjoyed this trip. Tomorrow we head back into Canada, get ready for a wedding, and get...

Jun 29, 2013 - Heading West

I finally finished my spring work ( planting and spraying ), and we are heading west. We left home at lunch time yesterday and drove across the 401, and then 402 to Sarnia. It rained most of the afternoon. We had a very smooth crossing at the border, less than a ten minute wait, and headed for the KOA at Port Huron. Lucky we had a reservation, as the place is packed. It is a great campground, especially for kids, as they have many activities going on. Glenna had booked one of two sites they had left a few days ago. The site is beautiful,...

Jun 13, 2013 - Push on to Port Huron

After a wild night of storms, morning dawned dry and sunny. I was still tired because I was up with Foxy until 2:30 in the morning. She's very scared of thunder and it was cracking loudly and the lightning was lighting up the interior of the coach. The rain pelted off the roof and Joe slept soundly through it all. There was little damage beyond some small trees downed. Since the storms were moving east, we planned to leave Hopkins and follow, but not quite catch up, to the rain. It worked and we arrived in Port Huron to dry, sunny, but cool...

May 31, 2013 - Day 17 : Chicago to Port Huron

Road day - step 1 en route back to Canada. What a hugely long day - Google maps had said 550 Km, but in reality it turned out 778Km. 9 hrs solid driving with tons of roadworks. Should have been work on the other roads too, as it was like driving on a washboard all round Chicago and through most of Michigan. It seemed (and was) some 4 hrs just to get round Chicago to the other side - and a lot of that was around 120 Kph - it wasn't that we were going slow. We started on local backj roads for the first hour or so to avoid major delays and...

Oct 24, 2012 - Enfin aux States

Nous avons quitté l’Ontario par un temps maussade et brumeux comme si le Canada était triste de nous voir partir, nous avons arrêté à un « service center » pour dîner et sommes repartis pour la frontière américaine toujours dans une brume épaisse et de petite averses de pluie puis enfin vers 13h30 en approchant de Sarnia et la frontière américaine le soleil est réapparu et la brume c’est dissipé comme si les USA étaient contents de nous voir arriver. Contrairement à l’an passé il n’y avait pas de trafic et on a passé les douanes en 3...
