FYI for you folks in the travel business, Lila and I finally left Vernon at around 1 p.m. yesterday (November 9) and drove to Osoyoos and the border crossing at Orville, Washington, arriving at about 5:30 p.m. It was dark then and we kept looking for the long line of tail lights that we were sure we would find waiting there, expecting at least an hour or two of delay getting across.
Nothing…not one car, truck or bus…not a single other vehicle…contrary to everything we had heard. In fact, the border agent kept us there for an extra 10 mins to chat about deer and wild turkeys and ask us questions about living in Mexico because he was bored. We laughed for miles.

Ed.: We have been inundated with wonderful border stories. We will send a few off to the border security people, thanking them for their compassion and understanding.
