June 11,12. I know I am repeating myself when I say everyday on a rally is different. But so far, this one wins the prize. We crossed from Quebec City over Pont de Quebec, the longest cantilever bridge in the world to Old Forge in the Adirondacks.
Rouses Point is normally this is a quiet crossing but not when two convicted murderers from the Clinton maximum security prison. Our border crossing was very slow. But then, we had to undergo three state trooper stop-and-search points and one detour since the convicts are still thought to be in the heavily wooded area around Cadyville, the exact town were to pass through. In addition to some 800 law enforcement officers the roads sides were clogged with every news network. I just have to wonder what the all these news folks are doing since it is now June 15 and these two guys are still at large. How many local citizens can you interview and ask, “Are you afraid to answer your door? Go out at night?” They could have interviewed us and ask why all these old cars were driving through Cadyville, NY.
I have to admit, all the police were most polite and especially when it was our turn to be “searched”, they simply waved us on with a “have a good trip.” Obviously Stewball could not hold one convict, let alone two.
Next, my birthday in Buffalo.
