Journal Penguin Follower's Journal: My first "international" trip

Just a quick entry (so I can look back on it one day if nothing else) to say that I've had to leave the States for my job for the first time. After 8 1/2 hours of driving yesterday, I made it to Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada. This was an extremely long and BORING drive. Holy crap, there is like nothing to look at while traveling the 401 from Windsor to Oshawa. Well except for the Toronto skyline as I zipped past it. Really nothing to look at though.

By the way, if you want to come up here doing work, don't tell that to the border guards. They will turn you around and send you home. I was tipped off about that and so I didn't make that mistake. ;) You're OK if you're coming up here to a "meeting", but if you're getting paid to do something up here the Canadian Gov't doesn't want you here... OTOH, if you're coming up here to spend money (i.e. a vacation) then by all means - c'mon in!

Cheers, ~ Steve
