One Last Blog

Wellesley Island State Park, New York

We’re on an island that is jointly owned by Canada and the USA. Tomorrow we rent a boat and go searching for my 40 pound pike. Who knows?

We may approach Nova Scotia though New England or we may simply head up though Ontario and Quebec.

Crossing the Canadian border presents several financial problems:

First, we just loaded up on cases of fine New York Finger Lakes wine and anything over two bottles is going to incur outrageous Canadian customs charges.

The second problem is our cell phones. Roaming in Canada is viciously expensive, but I just signed up for a plan that includes Canada for an extra $30 per month.

The real problem is the Verizon air card that we use to access the internet. The cost for data in Canada is $.20 per kilobyte or $200 for a megabyte. I won’t be posting many two megabyte pictures or checking stock market results unless we hit some campgrounds with a wireless connection.

Sooo…we will be incommunicado for awhile and not checking e-mail unless we choose the New England route to Nova Scotia (which will give me a chance to deplete my wine cellar before hitting the border).
