Frequent Border Crossers

We cross the border at least two trips a year... Someone noted earlier that crossing into the US is harder then the trip into Canada... 100% accurate but still easy to do.

The primary difficulty is the agriculture restrictions... Some bright light has decided your roast beef sandwich might be the source of the next Mad Cow Outbreak. The list of foods you cannot bring from Canada to the US is basically any fresh food products, dairy or citrus juices. We cross with only pre-packaged foods and then at our first stop on the US side we pick-up our meat and produce.

We use to dispose of any extra produce we had before crossing back North of the border... Until we discovered that Canada does not have the same stringent restrictions. Now we come home with whatever is left in the fridge... And my DW's year supply of Chef-Boy-Ardee Pizza Dough, which is not sold in Canada.

One thing to keep in mind... When returning to the US is your pet food. I can't remember all of the details but basically no lamb at all. Food packaged in USA is OK but it has to be in an unopened bag. As Canucks travelling South we just by a new bag before crossing the border and leave it sealed. Americans coming North... Again no problem because we do not have the same restrictions just be prepared to have to dump any extra food you have before the return trip.

Oh... And some booze is OK... A bottle per person or a case of beer is a safe bet... Trust me you DO NOT want to pay our Liquor prices. Up here Beer is more expensive then Gas.

Finally fill the tank before you cross... Canadian gas is currently about $1.15 a Litre... Translates to about $4.60 per Gallon.

We have camped in Maine for the last 20 years at Beaver Brook Campground. You are close enough to most everything. One o the countries best bass lakes, a pool and activities at night.

I'm actually posting this from here right now. Very nice park. The park is dead right now though but I've never been to a more QUIET place. Except for my kids you can't hear squat out here.

I ski there every year, but have never been there in camping weather. I need to go try it out.

Bikester- I'd definitely say check it out. I did a triathlon out there and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was April or May I believe so the water was still 50 something degrees, I highly advise against swimming that early. Coolest 1/2 mile of my life, even in a wetsuit.

If you swing by my place in the North Bay Area, Ca. in exchange for some BBQ and Beer, I might be persuaded to help you with some of your repairs.
