First Day Ottawa to Livingston

We were able to get everything ready and hit the road about 9:15 this morning on our first day on the road back to Livingston. I hadn't got fuel since leaving Michigan on our way to Ottawa and although I still had about a quarter of a tank I thought it best to get a little before heading out. At about $5.25 per gallon a little is all you want before crossing the border.
oThere seemed to be quite a few people in line when we got to the American Customs and the officer wanted to know the usual questions, "where are you from, where did you go in Canada and for how long, etc etc" Then he asked about fruit and vegetables and told us tomatoes were not allowed. This was just a day after we bought about half a dozen nice tomatoes at the farmer's market in Ottawa.
We stopped for the night in a nice welcome center/rest area in southern New York State about 35 miles north of the Pennsylvania border. When we pulled in we recognized the welcome center as we stopped here last year when coming home although last year when we stopped, it was during a heavy thunder storm.
The MotoSat is really bad today with internet connection worse than a slow crawl.. hopefully it will correct itself soon.
