Wife and I have a place to head to for beefsteak tomatoes just outside of Leamington, Ontario. BlTs two days ago and just good old tomatoe sandwiches yesterday for lunch. 6 for $3. Nice drive from here. Gets us out of the house during this time of COVID.

Was not intended to be a political post...it was intended to keep travelers informed. You may not be wanting to head north thru or to, Canada, but many do.

I think far too many people, on both sides of the border, are even more overly sensitive than they were previously and take the smallest comment as a slur or innuendo of some sort.

The same is true of general comments and text messages, it’s hard to add the inflection the human voice conveys and thus is often taken the wrong way.

I remember news stories years ago about Canadians buying places in the US SW, Las Vegas, Arizona, etc. I forget the name and cause of this opportunity.

Are those folks allowed to come down to their places in the US? What's required to go back to Canada?

I don’t think they can. I know four couples that have places in Indio, Palm Desert, La Quinta, and Tucson. At this point one says they’ll go when allowed and three say it depends on the situation there. They would be able to return but would have to quarantine if the border restrictions are still in place.

Canadians are not barred from flying into the US, it’s only driving in that’s not permitted.

There is no problem returning to Canada, it does however require a 14 day quarantine.

Wanting to go is a whole other matter.

No we cannot go to our places. We have a camp in the NY Adirondacks that I haven’t been able to go to even check it out since last December.

What I wish we were able to do is simply travel directly to our place without stopping, check everything out and then come straight home. No stopping for gas or a quick trip into Walmart, just in and out, the authorities can even track me on my iPhone if they want!

Our home in Canada is only 38 miles from the border; it’s extremely frustrating but I do understand the need to control movement to limit this terrible disease.

We have a place in Casa Grande, AZ. With the #`s below and the continuing upward trend, we won`t be headed south until the USA gets a handle on the virus ...border open or not!

This is the silly part of it. You can’t drive a couple of hours down & back even just to check on your place, but I can fly to Florida & back no questions asked and all I need to do is agree to quarantine on my arrival back into Canada.
