Final Leg - Airstream Plant to Ottawa - 12 Hours of Driving

Well we left the Airstream plant after a two night stay there, we had planned a third night but the threat of hail had us "biting our nails" and deciding to hit the road. Hail on an Aluminum skin leaves golf ball dimples all over ... not pretty, I am told, and the only solution is to re-skin the whole rig. Richard and I are working on a quick and ready damage prevention approach for hail threats
and I am pretty sure we have the answer.
Our travels took us from the Airstream Plant, North on I 75 to the border crossing at Detroit/Windsor. What a pleasure that was...There was an involved circling dance that we had to do to get the toll paid for the Ambassador bridge but it went okay so we were happy. We stayed overnight at the Flying J in London, Ontario. From London we travelled to Kingston Ontario and thank goodness our favourite campground there was open, with full hook-ups! Sweet!
Home is wonderful and my next post will include grandchildren photos.
