Wednesday, June 5th
When I reached the border on Wednesday morning, I used the Nexus lane to cross over to the US. As I pulled up to talk to the border guard, he informed me that I had been randomly selected by the computer to have my vehicle and its contents inspected. OK, ‘ who called him ?’ Fortunately, the whole incident only took 10 minutes.
The rest of the day was uneventful. I arrived in Sturgis, Michigan at 6 pm at the Amigo Centre, http://www.amigocentre.org/, which is a retreat/recreation center. I met Cheryl Mast, who is the outdoor education co-ordinator. We had a nice chicken BBQ, followed by a tour of the facilities before she took me to the Amigo camp park to check into a cabin. I considered tenting, but opted for cabin so that I could charge my helmet and phone.
