I understand there are restrictions on the food, etc. you can bring from Canada into the US.

Does anyone from Canada have any advise on what we should/should not bring into the US with us and any advise for crossing the border.
Although this isn't specific to Canada/Us crosing... You didn't mention how far you are going, but if go as far south as Oregon, wait to do any additional shopping from Washington as Oregon has no sales tax

Now, if you go even further south into California, don't shop for vegetables/fruit or plants before you cross the border into California! They will confiscate them as you enter California. Also, if you do have a kayak/boat entering Calif and you get the anal border guard, he/she might make you pull over and inspect for muscles, etc on the exterior/hull.

Hope this also helps

We are only travelling from Ontario to Michigan. But hopefully in the future we can venture further into the US.

Yup! Two years ago when we returned from back east to Cali with our Casita and minivan with kayaks on top, we hit the border (we had a Penoia.peno.penoia sumthinorother). The lady flagged us. She looked me in the eye and asked if I had any plants or fruits/veggies.... I said no (I forgot that Don had that plant in the tt and I was driving). Then she eye-balled the kayaks on the roof of our mini-van. She took like two minutes looking at it.. then the tt... the me (eyes) then the kayak and said that there was this muscle something or other and we have to be inspected.... then once again asked us about the plants/fruits/veggies..... well I knew we didn't have the fruits/veggies so I looked her in the eye and said NO, none of that and we haven't taken our kayak's where there were muscle's. She saw the line behind me, looked at me again, our kayaks and tt, then said OK, and flagged us on. Don almost pooped bricks in the passenger seat as a cousin of ours gave him that pinoriasumthinorother plant that was sitting right there when you entered our little Casita. I totally forgot about it. We lucked out!

OK we crossed that border several (many) times over the years, but the best thing is to not have a tt and have a fridge. If they aren't busy, they may pull you!

OK one more story.... last Sept when we came back across the Cali border with our truck/Jayco (we traveled back to Wisconsin), they asked specifically where we came from. I said LasVegas... Ok I wasn't lying, that was the last place we stayed on the way out west! (both of totally forgot we had fruit/veggies in the fridge and some fricken plant that Don picked up - Don loves plants!). The lady flagged us through thinking we went from Cali to Nv and back home. LOL

One time we came over the boarder in a car, and they found an apple. Go figure!

So, there is an actual "border crossing" when you enter California? Like when entering another country?

YEP.. even on the interstates they funnel all the traffic down to one lane then you pass thru .. most of em just wave you thru and ask no questions.. but my buddy from Tennessee got caught with $200.00 worth of fireworks.. sometimes they have a sniffer dog there and that got him.. also while traveling in the southern part of the state the US Boarder patrol has check points to see if you have any illegals hitching a ride with you...
