Reserving your hotels
Our trip will take place in July, you MUST HAVE A PASSPORT VALID FOR SIX MONTHS AFTER YOUR INTENDED STAY, so check your passports and ensure that they are good thru Jan 2018. If not, renew them immediately.
Bring evidence of ownership of any trike or bike you take into Canada. A sales receipt or invoice will be fine. Any bike or trike not manufactured in the U.S. (Azure or HP) could be subject to US duties/taxes when you re-enter the US if you don’t have proof of prior ownership. I plan to stop at the U.S. Immigration/Customs checkpoint PRIOR TO entering Canada and registering mine. That is fool proof. If you register them on the US side you will need the serial numbers. Normally you will not have any problem re-entering the US, but if you get a customs inspector who got up on the wrong side of bed, you could have a problem.
All lodging prices shown on the itinerary will be in Canadian dollars. The exchange rate can vary daily and as of today the US dollar was worth $1.30 Canadian dollars, so that means we would receive a 30% discount on our rooms in US dollars. Our trip is six months away and who knows what the exchange rate will be at that time with our new administration, or if the Canadians will even accept our $. LOL - that really was a joke!
We will be departing on our trikes from Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada on Saturday, July 01, 2017. This weekend is a three day weekend in Canada, with the Canadian people celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. We should see fireworks galore from Niagara Falls thru Toronto. Also July 4 will be the US celebration, so let’s bring our sunglasses and enjoy the shows.
We have reserved seven rooms (under Gary Bradford’s name) at each location per the following people that expressed an interest in going on the trip. If you cannot make the entire trip, or only want to make a portion of it, please let me know. We have until June before I will reconfirm the reservations and make any changes.
Trip attendees: Gary & Gay Bradford Iowa Park, TX Dan & Robyn Hansen Georgetown, TX Hank & Nancy Anderson Wichita Falls, TX
Tony & MaryAnn Teutsch Sugarland, TX Steve & Cynthia Wade Oklahoma City, OK John & Susie Shaddle Naperville, IL Dana & Carmella Thompson Summerville, SC
During the months leading up to our departure you will be receiving emails from both Dan Hansen and me regarding trip info, logistics and equipment to take. Please read the emails and if you have a question, please use the “reply to all” function as everyone needs to have access to all of the information and that question could be something that could pertain to all of us.
We look forward to another great adventure with our triking friends!! Stay happy & healthy, Gary & Gay
