I will be turning South either in Rochester or Syracuse NY, to catch I-84 at Scranton, that will be on Wednesday

I started out today from Dayton Ohio, late start time, i am right outside Buffalo NY right now. Tomorrow i will cross the Border & head up towards Toronto, should take no more than 3 hours drive time. That is not counting crossing the Border, they may pass me right through, or strip my Ram of all the contents, it all depends on the person in the booth

It looks like i will be staying for a day & 1/2 at the Canadas Best Value Inn at
Etobicoke, on Evans
going to meet my friends at Jack Astors i believe, it is fairly close
But that may also change, nothing is set in stone

The Musket Restaurant would work too

Back to miles driven & money spent in gas

Friday i drove from Joplin, Missouri to Dayton, Ohio
$174 in gas & i drove 671 miles, not counting driving around that area, which i did do quite a lot

Sunday i headed out to Hamburg, New York, it was the last town where decent motels could be found, before Buffalo, where i wanted to cross at the Peace Bridge into Canada
i drove 486 miles & i spent $173 on gas

Monday i topped off the tank for the trip into Canada, i didn't want to have to pay higher prices for gas in Canada
$15 to top off the tank, drove 105 miles that day

Tuesday i just drove around Etobicoke, just west of Toronto & east of Mississauga, then i drove up by Wonderland & east to Richmond Hill to Davies Harley Davidson to buy some t-shirts. Tonight i will be going to Jack Astors in Etobicoke, to meet some old friends, then maybe go to The Crooked Cue in Etobicoke to shoot the bull & maybe play pool

Tomorrow, (Wednesday) i will be driving back out of Canada & getting away from their funny money
my route will be Buffalo, NY, Rochester, NY, Elmira, NY, SCRANTON, Pennsylvania, to buy gas & hopefully some smokes at a SHEETZ gas station, before re-entering New York & then into Danbury Connecticut in time for a family cook out. It will be at the same place as i took the 2011 calendar pic.
I love that place on the lake.

I have not taken many pictures at all, but i have taken a few to show things that i passed, just for the pix Ho's

OK, i pulled into my sisters drive way about 5 pm yesterday, i was too tired to do much more than have a hot dog & burger, & a few Coors

Today i bought more Coors & lots of ice
then i went to a laundromat & did all my traveling stuff

while it was washing
i figured up the mileage & gas charges

3480 miles traveled, from San Diego to Connecticut, by way of Toronto
$788 for mid grade gas
you already know that the gas prices vary greatly

In California mid grade was $3.65 a gallon
In places like Ohio it was 20 cents cheaper
In Toronto i didn't buy gas, i am not rich
When i left Canada, i drove through New York & into Pennsylvania, there i bought gas, then just before entering Connecticut, the highway passes through the tip of New Jersey & i topped off there
This week i will be needing some more gas & i will buying it in Connecticut
that is going to suck, regular is something like $3.89
Maybe i will drive up to my Aunts house, she is close to the Massachusetts state line

I will have to check GAS BUDDY website to see if it is worth it driving up there

I am back on the road again

I visited with friends up in the Toronto Canada area
THen i drove down to Connecticut for several of my families parties & 102nd family reunion

I met with 4 Ram owners from New York, New Jersey, & Connecticut, we met at a place called the Tilted Kilt, ( believe me the kilts were not tilted, but they were short, i checked to make sure )

I am on my way back to California, with a stop over in Fort Worth for the RAMFEST, maybe 50 Ram owners said they would try to attend

Today i drove from Waterbury Connecticut to Johnson City, Tennessee, about 750 miles, it took 12 hours, doing the speed limit

If i remember correctly, doesn't RAMTECH live in this town, or at least work here ?
I won't have time to look him up, i need an early start, even if i am ahead of schedule

I took some pix but not many
I am marking down mileage, gallons of gas, & cost of the trip home
It cost $788 for the trip across country, approxiamately 3400 miles, but i didn't write down the gallons of gas needed to make the trip

Tomorrow i will try to drive 1/2 way between here & the Arkansas/Texas line at Texarkana, heck, if its close enough, i may try driving all the way to that State Line
