Wednesday, August 31st
This morning after saying goodbye to Kat on South Padre Island, I blogged a bit and sent out a couple of couch-surfing requests, before hittin' the road.
North Padre Island is not accessible from South Padre Island, so I backtracked up Highway 77 about 170 miles. I came to a border patrol checkpoint, which must have been closed when I was on my way down to South Padre. I saw dozens of vehicles pulled over to the side of the road, and after my painful attempt crossing over into Canada, I feared another 30 minute invasion of privacy. However, to my surprise, the officer was in a good mood and treated me with respect - and still apparently managed to do his job effectively, without being a jerk. I answered some questions and was on my way - yippee!
