We took a short ride into Canada last weekend. About 600 mile round trip. We left Spokane about 4 pm Friday to go to Nelson BC. Didn't bring any rain gear and as we got close to the boarder there were storm clouds so I backed off the speed to buy some time Only time of importance was the 8 pm boarder closure, but we had an hour to spare. Crossing was easy with the passport. And 1 hr to Nelson got us there before dark. We checked out the town and settled for beer and pizza at the Humm Hotel bar. We checked out the farmers market Saturday and also the water falls.
