In other words, we needed to have titles in hand for all our vehicles or else we couldn't take the vehicles into Canada. Luckily, we had the title to the truck with us. But the banks hold the titles for our Toyota car and The Jazz.
After hours at the Canadian and U.S. Immigration Offices, we turned back to Oroville (Washington) to take care of getting titles and officially exporting the vehicles from the U.S. Needless to say we were both exhausted, disappointed and frustrated. We wondered how many weeks all this would take.

even when picking up on our stress.
Oroville (Washington) has several camping options. You can camp up on Highway 97 for $8 per night (includes electricity) at Prince's RV Park or you can camp in one of two nice campgrounds - Osoyoos Lake Veterans Memorial State Park (no hookups but beautiful on the lake for $24 per night) or Royal Oaks RV Park (private and very nice for a weekly rate of $150). We've chosen Royal Oaks after the first noisy night by the highway at Prince's. I'm loving being camped by the Simikameen River.

We're trying to see the "opportunity" in this challenge and to keep a good attitude. After all it is a good "moment" even if we don't know whether we'll be taking care of the title business for another week or another month. Life unfolds and we practice being patient, flexible and living in the moment.
What do you do when things don't go the way you planned?
