    So here is where the story gets interesting. I believe everyone has a story worth telling, and a story worth listening to.
    I met Trevor Kewin and we started to chat.

    Turns out a number of Trevor's extended family and friends ashes are scattered right where he's standing. That's where they wanted to be because they used to always come there. The locals know it as jackass mountain.
    Thanks for sharing the story Trevor.

    So I made it to Abbotsford by about 7pm. It's gonna rain so I got a hotel. It's a super 8 and the only thing I think is super about it is it's super expensive.
    $240
    I should be crossing at sumas tomorrow.

    I stopped across the street and at Micky D's I got a kale,egg, and feta cheese wrap. Super good.
    I had a few Canadian dollars left over not worth exchanging.
    Meet Maureen. She was the lucky recipient of my left over funny money.
    I asked her if she would allow me to pay for her breakfast, and after I explained that I was from the states and not coming back anytime soon and it wasn't worth changing the money she agreed.
    I asked her name, snapped her pic, and told her to have a nice day.
    Pass it on Maureen

    I lined up for the border. It was less than 3 minutes. Much easier than my Hyder/Stewart crossing.

    I took the back roads toward Mt Baker, then down to Sedro Wooley, and over across to Anacortes
