... have been costly for both us, and it, and not the sort of memory you want to carry with you!
After ten days in Canada a short flight to Newark in New Jersey. We arrive hoping that the trucks release will not be delayed by US Customs. For three nights we kill time at an airbandb that we had organised near the port of entry in Newark.
