Seems that it is not a hassle if you are at the Mexican border. Hope you had a good ride and many more after this one. :D Enjoy your wing, and be careful. ;)

My wife and I were up the East side of Kooteney Lake, took the ferry and down to Nelson and back to Sandpoint. Very nice ride and as usual, BC is beautiful!!

The next time you come back this way make sure you look up Brad and/or myself, heck you may even have met Brad when you were on the ferry.......
