OK so let’s get this party started….

It first begins on Tuesday afternoon armed with plenty of copies of my new Ford emblem stickers laugh



And my freshly painted Mini Tricky Vicky woot



We are ready to start packing my car.
I was stopping by Rizzo’s first on the way to Canada.
So I left earlier than Nomad (he had to work and wasn’t joining me until Thursday night at Rizzo’s)



It was roughly about a 5 hour drive to Romulus (give and take some extra minutes)
So after flying by the Welcome to Michigan sign on the expressway, I was happy to be able to pull over and take this picture.



I finally arrived at Rizzo’s around 3:30am (I took the scenic route and turned into the airport and was lost for a minute)
Poor Doreen she had to work the next morning but she had stayed up waiting for me to finally arrive.



On Thursday afternoon I finally got to meet my friends Cody and Thomas! banana
They came to see me and decided to wait with me for Jeremy to get there so we could all convoy together.
Then Nadroj( Jordan) a fairly new CVN member came by to drop off some corn for RZPLA.
He had drove straight from Nebraska that day) so we convinced him to convoy with us as well.
L-R Thomas, Cody and Jordan (this picture is courtesy of Doreen, I snagged it from her pictures)

Jeremy had arrived,coming straight from work and we all had some Hungry Howies pizza (yum)
Once April showed up, we have a 4 car convoy and we are ready to roll out woot
unfortunately it was so late and so foggy I do not have any convoy pics.
..but I did have fun with the FRS radio talking to everyone.
we were the lead car and I was giving GPS info like "30 miles to next exit"
So here we are arriving at the border around midnight

I will go ahead and apologize now for my new fancy HD camera that takes crappy night pictures,
as you will see what I mean later on too in this thread.


Please pull over to the right so we can go thru all of your stuff and question you to death

And I mean they went thru my stuff.
keep in mind my trunk is LOADED down with clothes and they kept asking me "and you are only staying in Canada for 2 days"
I was saying yes, but I have been traveling since Tuesday and I am a girl and I always over pack blush
so then we had to go into this building:


So at this point I am totally freaking out,
I have never been thru customs or out of the country before
I have heard some of the horror stories..
and Jeremy is only adding to my stress by whispering to me as we are going in the door..
"This is where they are going to search you"


WAIT WHAT????
wtf2 hairraise

and this is where I will end for now
to be continued......

Its right beside the Airport. That picture was taken from the parking lot of whatever random hotel is right beside the Airport when I was in Romulus last year (on completely non-STAP related business).

Nope never saw it. First time there I came straight off of 275 onto Ecorse from the west, and second time there I came straight off of 94 onto Ecorse from the east. We went over towards Telegraph to go to the car show, so I've never actually driven directly past the airport.
