From what I have read prior to 9/11 many of the Canada to US border crossings we’re honor system with orange cone barriers. Counting Alaska the US Canadian border is 5500 miles.

And that’s the road and bridges… most is likely wilderness and forest.

the town I lived in Germany was close to the Dutch boarder, we used to go to the swimming pool there because it was closer. We have one family friend who grew up in a house in Germany, if he played at the bottom of his garden he was in Holland, the border ran through their back yard.

Like this..




and we would go here, if you sat on top you were in 3 countries at once:

There is a library and opera house that literally straddles the US- Canadian border in Quebec and Vermont. The main entrance is in the US, but inside, the library collection and stage are both on the Canadian side of the border line.

I love stories like this. When I worked in Windsor, Ontario in 1966, I would cross into Detroit in a car with four Canadians. They told me not to catch the eye of the US border guard, and not to open my mouth. He looked inside, said "Are you all Canadians?" and let us through. I heard of one Australian chap who tried that, but when the border guard asked him "Where are you from?" he said, in a broad Aussie accent, "Same as me mates." End of intended Big Night Out in Detroit!
