The Road To Kodiak - Underway As Before


Recommended Posts

Left Seneca Falls today at 2:11PM

 

Arrived in Ann Arbor MI a little after 11PM

 

441 Miles today

 

Lots of construction along the way slowing us down. They should just post a single sign... Construction next 5773 miles!

 

25 Wal-Mart Trucks, all in the US.

 

The Canadians who say they have never seen wal-mart trucks, are only half right. We went buy 2 wal-marts in CA, and they use plain white, unmarked trucks in CA, so you would not be able to distinguish them from anything else on the road.

 

On the US highway, we saw our first one in less than 3 miles, in 6 miles we saw 3, and had seen 11 by 50 miles!

 

Fuel leaving Niagara Falls, was 4.13 per gallon

 

Things written down to look up when we got to a net connection:

 

Population of CA

Why do we yawn

concert, John Waite with Survivor

 

Next post will have the wal-mart trailer entries :)

This sounds like such a fun adventure! Have a great time. I think a lot of us GTers are traveling vicariously through you and Trudy.

Thanks for the update. :)

 

I saw one big old Wal-Mart truck in a 45 minute ride to Lake George yesterday. They are out there lurking everywhere.

417 miles today and another 17 Wal-Mart trucks, bringing the total to 42.

Just got in to Madison Wisconsin

 

things to look up:

 

Difference between fruit and vegetable (If it has seeds, you can almost be sure it is a fruit)

How much is a 'smart car' and could it possibly be cost effective (11.6k - 16.6k, seems useless for most people)

what is the deal with the Sears Tower. (tallest building in US since 1973)

I'm really shocked that you've seen so few Wal-Mart trucks... I routinely see 20+ in the 50 mile drive from my house to San Diego... and add to that 30+ Costco trucks...

You went over the Ambassador Bridge? I used to live almost right next to it!

 

Safe and happy trip - the dogs seem to be taking things in stride!

Beautiful Flint, Michigan; I remember it well. :lol

 

Any problems getting in or out of Canada with the pups? Did you need any paperwork for them besides proof of rabies?

needed no paperwork for anything. We had it, but nobody asked for it. I handed them my military ID along with our passports, and it made for fast crossings ;) ...Jeff

You know, I think you should have waited to leave NY before counting wal-mart trucks, since the walmart truck depot is in Johnstown/Amsterdam. :lol

 

Safe travels to you.

Wow, I'm Canadian and that stat blew me away.

 

That said I live in Toronto (GTA), popuation just over 5 million, so It really doesn't seem that sparse to me! If I wanted I could visit at least 15 Walmart stores in one day (not that I would reccommend this<GGG>!) In fact I'm on my way there now...

 

I was right, Canada is sparse, the population of California is a good bit higher than all of Canada! ~16% higher

construction around Chicago was not too bad, but it was all still pretty glow going.

Wanted to head out of here around 9, but think it will be closer to 9:30, so we should see you, Aimee and Stewart around 2

Edit: Yup, 2 more... 44 total

Well I'm out of it :(

Dairy Queens in the north don't have steak fingers do they? Did you get a dip cone? Those are my favorite.
