Happy Canada day!

Today we woke up in Jarvis and started to drive west. The day before we had seen a house with a lot of old tractors outside, so today - we stopped there and had a little chat with the owner and he gave us a trip around his private museum.
We ate by the Lake and drove in to Detroit while we got through the custom this time - not by pulling one of the cars. Afterwards we had a little problems to find a campground. Our GPS took us to a house district(which were supposed to be a campground according to the GPS). Quite soon we got help from some nice, local people and they gave us a street with a couple of hotels.

I dag våknet vi opp i Jarvis i Canada og startet å kjøre vestover. Dagen før hadde vi sett et hus som hadde en hel haug med gamle traktorer utenfor - så i dag tok vi turen innom han. Han ga oss en rundtur i sitt private museum.
Vi spiste ved innsjøen i en liten town som het Seacliffe, etterpå kjørte vi vdere til Detroit. Vi kom oss tryggt igjennom tollen denne gangen - uten å dytte noen av bilene. Etterpå hadde vi litt problemer med å finne en campingplass/motell/hotell. Vi prøvde å få inn nærmeste gjennom GPS'en, men den tok oss til et jødedistrikt. Der fikk vi massevis av hjelp og det samlet seg fler og fler rundt bilene våre. En av de skulle visstnok skrive en reportasje om oss. Vi ble velsignet og kjørte videre for å finne gaten de hadde gitt oss for hoteller.

Hi, I met you today when you got lost in Oak Park, outside Detroit. I'm the person with the 3D camera. I'm writing an article for The Truth About Cars (www.ttac.com) about your journey across America (and will also post photos as www.carsindepth.com) and I need a couple of details. I know that one family are the Hagens, but I don't know the other family that is in your group. Can you give me all of your names and ages?

How long have you been planning this trip?

What gave you the idea to do it?

Why the Renault 4?

Do any of you belong to a Renault 4 club?

Have you tried making contact with American Renault enthusiasts?

Good luck with your trip.
