We are very concerned with green house gasses caused by fossil fuels in Canada, doing our part for greening the world!

When returning to the US be careful of what you take back. I got searched earlier this week and found to be in possession of illegal contraband........2lbs of BC grown tomatoes and three bell peppers!

Just got back... I didn't see anything about LP restrictions, anywhere. Went over on the Rainbow bridge, checked us pretty close... asked questions... said he was xraying the trailer and truck, don't believe it, but maybe so. He went inside the trailer, opened drawers.. complimented the Triumph Thunderbird. They don't allow guns, no ammo, or contraband. And, apparently peppers and tomatoes :-) We had both probably, they missed them! Pay the ridiculous toll, be prepared to take 2 hours to get across the bridge (Rainbow). It took us that long. Get to the falls when the suns shining, but beautiful with a capital B! Coming back, no toll, no close check... maybe 10 minutes, came across the Peace bridge, which is the one to use (coming or going - IMO) if you are coming up from the south, certainly. Look for the sign Ft. Erie exit, nothing I saw said anything about the Peace bridge nor Canada until you pass the exit (now you know why we went in on the Rainbow :-) We turned the phones off and no internet, except at the CG. Expensive roaming in CA. Also, you should check your GPS if you have one, ours didn't have CA maps. If you do any driving in CA, expect not much in the way of highway signage. They take US dollars, but most charge you as if it were Canadian, which is worth less... they take credit cards but might charge you a service fee. Things are not cheaper there, for instance diesel is $5.50 a gallon, once converted from Metric to US. The falls are great, but to see the beauty of Canada go north... far north!

This is informational, we love our Canadian friends. First, you only pay one way because they collect both tolls on the canadian side. The "Public Bridge Authority" aka locally refered to as the Peace Bridge, is the second most in volume, of all entry points in and out. So, if you can plan your crossing during off peak hours at that crossing point you will have less of a wait. The Public Bridge Authority/Peace Bridge is a much larger bridge, so it can handle quite a bit of vehicles.

Almost everything is more expensive in Canada. Its just how their government taxes things. There are way more fuel taxes, liquor/beer taxes, etc. They love shopping on the US side, so they can skirt all the levies put on them. It's sort of the way we are beginning to think on this side of the border, by taxing us more and more. As far as being scanned, and you are, its for all our safety. The xray thing is for our safty as well, looking for hidden compartments and the like. They restrict much produce, because of the bug transmission issue. And rightly so, I might add.

But, you will find that they are very friendly people, unless you tell them you don't like hockey! Oh, and one more thing, if you have any bad history, all of your id's are run through the database. Too bad our southern border is a sieve right now, makes ya wonder don't it. The good part is no fence is needed, we have the mighty Niagara, to keep out the bad guys. Makes the rio grande look like a trout stream.

We are heading there next week. So looking forward to it!

We have gone a couple times in the last few years. This will be the first time at a campground as we have always done the hotel thing before.

Yes stuff does cost more up here in Canada, but I love it here. It is a great place to live!
