Achievement Unlocked: Permanent Residence received!

stampThis Thursday, the roads finally were in a condition I deemed safe for a motorcycle rider; so I grabbed my passport and the paperwork I got from the CIC, and went to Point Roberts. Of course, with no GPS or a prior knowledge of the route, I got lost, and spent an extra 30 minutes re-navigating myself, but, finally, I’ve made it to the border in one piece and with some fuel left in the tank.

Decision Made!

Once I have it, I need to leave Canada (from what my friend, who got his PR a few months ago, told me, I can go to Point Roberts, notify the border staff I just need to “activate” my PR, leave the transit zone, make a circle and walk right back in).
