When we went into Canada to pick up we handed over the passports and the dog's vaccination papers, and when the agent handed them back there was a treat for Baxter in her hand.

crossing the border

When we crossed into Canada last time, we had the full Jeep to outfit the 21. The Canadian woman just looked at the pass ports, handed them back and said I see you just renewed these, before crossing back into the states we should sign them. That's all, I guess we look harmless.

For those who have a permit to carry, they will know when they check your license and then they will grill you about the reason you have such, just to make sure you are not carrying.

Interesting Jim. I was scolded by an Alaska ranger once for hiking in the woods without carrying a large caliber gun of some sort. How does one drive to Alaska with a weapon?

Paperwork. Always paperwork.

I often wondered about that. We took three long guns into Ontario in 2010 as we were hunting bear near Horne Payne and had no hassle whatsoever. Just paid the fee, did not even inspect the cases. Handguns are a whole different world and I have no desire to attempt breaking the rules. I even made sure they knew I did not have any spuds which were verboten at the time. Bought my spuds And whiskey in White River, the home of Winnie the Pooh.

Hi Rob- just a friendly reminder with all the excitement: check your jacknife points. A friend from last year's Rally dinged his Dakota on his 19. I have a small star in a rear tail light lens.

Have a great time in your new Escape!

There are a pile of "reality" shows about border crossing operations. The common theme seems to be that if you just do basic research about what you can take across the border, then honestly answer all the questions (which means declaring what you have in any category they ask about), there are few problems. Americans routinely take rifles and shotguns through Canada as they visit Canada for hunting or pass through traveling between Alaska and the lower 48 states.

Having no permanent plate draws attention, but as Robert just demonstrated it's not a problem when you are not trying to get away with anything.
