Back in the USA, I say Back in the USA

Today a total of 259 miles, from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to Lansing, Michigan. Not a whole lot of miles but back into the USA. And getting over the border was a long slow process. Going into Canada was no where near as hard as coming back into the USA. When we crossed into Canada, they asked us a few questions and then waived us thru. But coming back over at the Blue River Bridge it was a super slow process. We must have spent an hour crawling up over the bridge and then creeping down the other side. At the bottom the three lanes spread out to three for trucks, a couple for the quick pass and about six or seven for cars and RVs. But every lane was so slow it was painful. We saw at least a dozen cars being searched.
Yesterday had been a real experience for us. First time driving in a place where they used Km instead of miles. So as we are driving along I noticed the sign calling for a speed limit of 100 Km per hour. Well, our car is equipped with a little button where we can change from MPH to Kmh. So I reached over and made the change. A few moments later Judy looked down at the speedometer and freaked!!! She was doing 111 kmh. She hadn't noticed that I had changed the speedometer over. I quickly explained what I had done and she settled down, but it sure was funny to watch her reaction.
Tonight we had dinner at another Bob Evans Restaurant. A very nice meal with good service.
We had planned on staying at at Best Western Hotel tonight but when we got to the address it has changed to another owner so we looked around and found a Quality Suites Hotel nearby. We got the biggest suite of our trip so far at one of the lowest prices so far too.
