The website definitely says August 4th, which is Thursday; however, it could just be a typo on the website. I note that last year August 4th was the Tuesday after the long weekend... a copy-and-paste error?

As long as your propane detector is working properly, I trust your judgement and eyesight...... Don't hit the wine too hard, and be ready for showtime on Tuesday!

What campground are you at? Do you recommend it? We arrive Tuesday in Chilliwack and looking for campsite.

We are at Cottonwood Meadows RV Park. It's expensive, but it's a nice place and it's very close to ETI. It's about $50 per night, and that's with Good Sam. It's better than $120 for a room at the Best Western.

Message from Tammy on Friday, July 29th.

Here is the latest update I received from Tammy. this came into my mailbox late Friday evening.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for all of your patience and understanding through all of this.

Today I was hoping for an update. – Mind you everyday this week I have hoped for an update… Since I received confirmation of the 565 and 566 I was anticipating the 551 would not be too far behind. I emailed US customs yesterday to see if they could confirm any changes within their system however, as of 3pm this evening they have not returned my email and been unavailable by phone.

On Wednesday, I emailed and called the department responsible for reviewing the 551 and did not receive a response and today at 11am PST I followed up with a second email and phone call however, both have gone un-responded to.

I am beginning to wonder if I have been blacklisted from NHSTA . Someone mentioned that if you poke too many times they will stop returning calls and move you to the bottom of the pile or ‘lose your paperwork’. Keeping this in mind I am trying to not push but remain pleasant and friendly in all of my communication.

As many of you know this is a long weekend for our staff however, Reace and I knowing this is only a BC holiday have remained available just in case something changes. We will both be available on Monday as well just in case of a change and hope to have everyone on their way within 24hrs of getting the go ahead.

I know many of you are trying to decide if you should continue with your scheduled Orientation or re-schedule. As of Tuesday, August 2 it will be two weeks. I am unsure as to how to advise any of you at this time as I can appreciate the dilemma with which you are facing.

Please feel free to forward any questions you may have.

Warm regards,

Tammy Harmatuik, Business Manager

I imagine there is a bit of lost sleep at the Harmatuik household. I know my mind would be going a million miles an hour if I was in their situation.

First all their dealings with their own municipal government trying to get permits for construction all through to enable building of the addition, now having to deal with the US federal government on this. I know with my out dealings with permits with the City, that government bodies, whether their intents are well meaning or not, usually have no concept of time, and the costs to public. All too often I have been given what they see as a simple request, but it still requires lots of planning, redoing lots of what I have done, then resumption only to wait once more for their review.

I think I will go camping now. Back Monday evening.

In a previous life I dealt with shipments to the US military. There is no rhyme or reason to working with the US government!

In dealing with a quasi-government entity (major telcom) for 20 years the concept of right hand/left hand disconnect is a big problem.

If it were me I would try to export a trailer everyday and see what happens. It would not surprise me to see the green light at the border ahead of any official communication stating the situation is resolved.
