I've just caught up on looking at the web log - It was especially nice to see the pics of Alf & Mary Anne, and Raymond & Monique. (And thank you, Raymond, for helping with their trip itinerary!)

Lex, your pictures of Quebec and Montreal make me hope for my own journey up that way some day!!

We already miss you all

We like to get a map of the USA + the States we travelled as an adhesive on the trailer.
Somebody knows where to buy?
Thanks.

Lex and Rita,

We miss you too. I log on every day looking to see where you have been and where you are.

I was just sitting here thinking that you've only got about a week left before you have to have the trailer to the dock. And then just about 2 weeks until you hop on that QE2 headed for home.

Keep posting you trips for us now that you have us hooked.

Alrighty, you betcha, by golly, holy cow, I can't remember all the wonderful new phases you've learned from us. I surely enjoyed your getting a kick out of our slang.

I'll look forward to the next couple of weeks to see just what else you've visited while here.

Have a wonderful journey home.

Lex And Rita, Although we didn't get to meet you we followed your trip log very often and I must say it is very very well done and very interesting to read. We spend a lot of time in the Amish country and in Intercourse itself and I could tell by your description that the campground you wanted to stay in was probably Beacon Hill. The reason they don't allow children is not that they don't like kids but rather they would have to put a children's playground in and they simply don't have the space and the liability for accidents is very expensive.
You mentioned the Amish behavior towards outsiders and yet the business side of it. If the truth be known many of the business' are owned by none Amish just capitalizing on their simple lifestyle but most are still very friendly. We stay at Beacon Hill often but, make reservations a day or so ahead and just about every evening local Amish will show up to sell hot fried chicken and baked products to the campers, its really quite unique. Again we thank you for your visit and the travel log, it was quite interesting to hear the views of a visiter that does so well with our language, Best Regards and safe travels for the rest of your journey, Bill and Karen

Our journey to and in North America has come to an end. Its was allrighty wonderful. With lots of 'wow, oh my god' moments. Nature in NA is great, as almost everything is big. But we most liked meeting all those wonderful people :-) As: John & Meg, Suzie, Mary & Skip, Catherine & Dave, Mike & Lori, Colleen & Steve, Ellen & Brett, Garth & Kathy, Nancy & Fred, Jacquie & Bill, Del & Sandy, Nancy, Joy, Donna, other participants of the Oregon Gathering, Ian & Paddy, Alf & Mary Anne, Raymond & Monique. (Hope we didn't forget somebody.) Thanks to all the folks who showed interest in our journey by email, our guestbook and the forum of fiberglassrv.com and helped us to make it a great happening. We hope to meet you in cyberspace again and maybe in real life. Thanks for making our journey the trip of our life :-)
Hugs to all you guys ;-) from Lex & Rita, aka RiLex

THANK YOU Lex and Rita. Meeting you has added immensely to my memory book. All the work and effort you put in "Touring North America" will allow me to relive some of your trip and recall things of my younger years.

Safe travels!

We really did like the Fall foliage in Canada and The US.
How about Fall Foliage in our village?

Lex and Rita,
Sorry we didn't get to meet you on your brief trip through Florida.
The leaves in your village are beautiful... Are the trees a type of maple?

We just came back from North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and western New York. The leaves were amazingly beautiful... especially the mountainsides along the highways in NY, VA, and W VA. A patchwork of brilliant yellows, oranges, and red, with the green of the conifers. I love autumn in the north.

Hope you had a great trip home!

Sherry

An easter story
During our itinerage in America we bought a glass egg in the Crater Lake giftshop.
It travelled with us to Baltimore where we repacked it into our travel bags.
When we unpacked at home on oct 15, 2009, we did not find the egg. We looked at every possible place, without result.
On easter sunday 2010 R. was strolling the garden (That is a normal habit, because she maintains the garden.) and finds the glass egg under a shrubb !!!!
We haven't the faintest idea how it got there and for how long it has been there. We don't expect to get an answer.
