We made it :)

Well not to New Orleans but accross the US border. Since we had started at Niagara Falls we were very close to the US border. We went through the US border very smoothly. Even though the officers were surprised they all were couteous. They did read the previous post when they asked about a website and double checked it. :)

But it went well (despite the fuel bottle and the one way ticket…). That was a big milestone… if not the biggest personally speaking. In Chicago we will be in about 12hrs. (3rd May 2010).

    Hey guys,

    Good to here that you made it. Hopefully those u-boats…….errr kayaks can handle the smooth terrain of millions of barrels of oil soon to be floating around!

    Hey Blada,
    I didn’t know you already left. I think, for you, going through the US customs is already an actual achievment :-P
    I hope without me you won’t get lost, but on a river it’s easy : just follow the stream and the shore.
    Cya and try to stay alive.

    Good stuff :) Where do the sails go on that ‘kayak’ thing?

    Chicago? Eee! You’re in the Holy Land! Did you run into Oprah?

    I was truly concerned about you getting across the border, but look at you now!

    P.S. If you hear banjo music, paddle faster.
