If you are thinking of buying wine in the US and bringing it into Canada to avoid taxes here, remember visitors to Canada can only bring two 750 ml bottles per person into Canada or they will have to pay a high duty. See Visitors to Canada

Got that right. Leslie tells me if I lived anywhere but BC I'd be an alcoholic in no time flat! Not only are the prices cheaper in the US and Alberta but it's practically a sin to not buy 6 bottles of wine at a time!

Yeah, but how good does it taste?

I think the extra insulation and thermal windows and spray foam underneath will be just important for hot weather as cold. I am ordering it for my 21'. Maybe I want have to use the loud air conditioner as much.

When is the 2014 rally? I've looked, but so far haven't found any mention of it.
