Default OT: Testing the Border This Evening

To all our follow Canadians on the NG, an early "Happy Thanksgiving".

We are leaving this evening to go to Kanhawake, Quebec (Mohawk Reservation outside of Montreal) to spend my first Canadian Thanksgiving with Jim's family.

As for the POE, in July we used the Lake Champaign crossing and were lined up for about 25 minutes before being examined both coming and going into Canada.

In August, we used Houlton, ME to enter New Brunswick and were heavily questioned at the POE and observed the car slips filled and examiners going through coolers, trunks and cars.

On the return, we used St. Stephen (Calais), ME and had over a 2 hour line-up to just get to the toll booth. Once at the TB, the car was searched top, bottom, under and over and our documents thoroughly examined and both of us verbally examined. We were not singled out as they were doing this to everyone leaving Canada regardless of our nationality.

So it should prove interesting this crossing at Lake Champaign to see what the procedure will be like. Now do I have to declare the three meat pies and two sweet potato pies I am bringing in? They are homemade ;-)

So after 3 today I will be without a computer. I have this adversion to using computers and cell phones for anything other than emergencies while on vacation. I lived all of my 54 years without a phone attached to my ear and I'll be damned if I'm going to have a cell phone surgery implanted just to stay abreast of current trends.
