We used Cracker Barrel for overnight in Boise. There are two about 15 min apart and both allow it.

No taking eggs into Canada

Never mind.

So I've been wading through the Tips for driving across the border things not to even think about bringing, and it seems to include fresh foods of any kind, firearms of course, more than ten thousand dollars (no problem there), and, any and all Cannabis products. Guess that rules out my favorite THC salves, oils, jellies, tinctures and hard candy.

What about my bags of frozen Bertolli or other pre-assembled bags of uncooked commercially froze foods?

If I remember right, no eggs or anything with egg products may be taken into Canada.

Cabela's also unfriendly. Anyone ever overnight park at the Cracker Barrel in Boise?
Black Creeks rest area. Overnight parking is OK.
