Crossing New York State going up to Thousands Island Parkway

It was not the season at the State Parks close the Finger Lakes. We enjoyed being alone, specialized our barbeque skills and figured out how to prepare non-typical camping meals. We got beautiful clear lakes and our first amazing waterfalls. It’s a nice hike up to the Buttermilk Falls creak! Also visiting the Toughannok Falls. Then we went to the East Coast of Ontario Lake. Did some fishing without success… but enjoying the sun set (being annoyed of thousands mosquitos)!

The next day we drove to Thousands Island Parkway in Canada. Entering Canada was quite easy, but back to US later on … We took plenty of attraction with our unusual motor home in the US and Canada. To answer some questions: We are not a band, we don’t take you on our first album, no storm chaser, no Scooby Doo mobil,  …

We crossed the bridge to Canada making a traffic jam on top, because we were so amazed of the great view on the Sankt Lorenz River with … islands on it. At early noon we ate good fish in Gananoque and started our way back on the parkway. Great drive, slower than usual looking on the little hoods and houses on the islands in the river. Nice!

For our travels we need a so called “Carnet de Passage” for custom free import of goods for a year. It’s not usual for a car. Most of the time people need it for pictures or jewellery to show them in museums for a limited time or like these. In US you don’t need, but in Canada it’s recommended and in South America it’s necessary. So you need completed “book” with notes and stamps entering and leaving every country at their customs.

Beeing the main attraction on the border we been sent back from US border to Canada. They’ve never seen a Carnet like this before, especially for a car like this. Nice officers treated us very nicely. Next US border again. One officer, who was inspecting our van, called two other officers. We thougt: Oh my god, what’s going on. They walked around our truck also looking inside. Then one started: “That’s so cool! Awesome! Never seen one like this before!” So we explained them the functions and interior of our vehicle. They smiled and wished us save travels! Everything was fine!

So we continued our journey two hours later than expected. So we headed to a State Park with a great view to the Jackson River. Wow, nice sunset and so beautiful landscape! We have not recognized that the park was closed because we arrived late and read the sign:  Arriving after 6:30 pm come back at next morning for registration. The two girls in the office haven’t charged us – thank you!

Camping in Canada was not possible, because at most of the campgrounds the season starts at May or middle of May. So we had to think about our plans. Great Lakes, especially Lake Superior would be one or two month too early.
