Day #166 – Back to the USA!

LOCATION:  Gaylord, Michigan – in north central part of state
CAMPGROUND:  Another Harvest Host site – Big Buck Brewery.  We are in their very large, paved parking lot – so setting up was easy.  Concerned that there will be road noise overnight
WEATHER:  Hotter.  Sunny.  High 84
DISTANCE DRIVEN:  3 hours

We took our time at our friends’ house in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.  George chatted the whole morning with our friend.  We took off around noon.

The border crossing was a breeze  –  the easiest we have ever experienced.    We were the only vehicle in line!  So — no wait.  We showed our passports.  After one easy question – did you buy anything in Canada?—- the agent welcomed us to the USA.

I did the driving again today – making myself cross the scary Mackinaw Bridge.  I did it! 

We arrived in Gaylord in mid-afternoon and got set up.  Here is a big beer bottle at Big Buck Brewery where we are parked….

We walked to their cute downtown.  It is called an “Alpine Village” and the architecture is Bavarian.

Lots of nice flowers, too

We are on the 45th Parallel – halfway between the North Pole and the Equator. There are 45th Parallel shops here.

We found a brewery that had been recommended and tried some of their beers.  Then, we walked back to Big Buck Brewery for another beer and dinner.  We had one of the 45th Parallel IPAs.

DINNER:  Pizza and beer.
