Crossing the US borderSeptember 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C
The next day we crossed the US border and entered the 2nd country on our trip. The officer at the border was quite strict and interrogated us for about 30min. In the end, we could convince him that we are no illegal immigrants and he let us pass with the 90 days permit in our passports 😉
The North of Washington State is how you picture it: regional US farm houses with the American flag in front, many little churches I have never heard of before and private property signs everywhere.
In Sedro Woolley, we bought a local SIM to get around easier. However, we found out that in order to activate it, you actually need a working local phone... - weird! We are so thankful that the shop assistant spent 1 hour (!) with us to get our SIM working, even let us use her private phone.
With those interruptions, we arrived pretty late and very tired at Rasar State Park campground after 120km with 611m of elevation. However, no time for relaxing. We had to hurry setting up the tent as it already started to rain. It actually ended up pouring all night, so Herbert could shower in the rain. Unluckily, this also meant that most of our stuff got wet or at least damp, so the night was uncomfy and the next morning started with drying at least some of the stuff... Not the best end of a long day on the bike 😞Read more
