After a 3 year hiatus, due to family planning, my father and I headed
back to Canada for our annual father and son fishing trip.

The trip started Friday evening when we left Newtown around 6:30 PM
and drove to Plattsburg, NY in about 6.5 hours. We made really good

Up early the next morning, because you never know with the border
crossing but there was only one car ahead of us.

We entering Quebec, it always reminds of the highway that you used to
have to take from Hanover, Germany to West Berlin, traveling through
what used to be known as East Germany. Except, it seems the highway
has been paved. I don't know what it is, whether it's the bridges,
the shoddily paved highway, or just the sparseness between the border
and Pont Champlain (the Bridge over the Saint Lawrence).

You will note, in the picture below, the price of gas is $1.47 per
liter, which is roughly $5.88! Yikes!
