Not necessarily - from what I've learned about tobacco sticks today is there is the walking cane version and the smoking kind.

But also consider the exchange rate before you buy anything state side. I agree, things often are less expensive in the US but by the time the Loonie In you bank is converted in to a US $, the savings could soon evaporate for basics like food. A couple of years ago, when it was at par or better, the towns and cities on the US side struggled to keep up with the influx of Canadians traveling south to make purchases. I remember seeing dozens of new cars, on temporary tags, all stopped at the boarder heading into Canada while they got their import paperwork sorted. I don't see it so much now there is about 15% difference between the two currencies.

We keep a US dollar account and swing $$ into it when the exchange is good. It's been great over the last few years. Even at current rates the savings CAN be substantial. We get ripped off on so many items.

Better to check with U.S. customs in your crossing state to see what ok and what's not. We cross 3 or 4 times from Ontario to New York and back again every summer with only fire wood being a major issue into NY as well as back into Canada. I had to throw a bundle into the dumpster recently when returning to Ontario. Fruit is next on the list and probably worth leaving home. Meat & veggies aren't a problem for us right now.

p.s. Came back from New Brunswick to Maine last summer and the customs officer threatened denying us entry for not declaring our avocados. Like I'm trying to smuggle avocados. Someone was on a power trip. Note: This Maine crossing was the only time a customs officer has ever entered our RV.

Thanks for all the info

Thank you for all the useful replies. I know that grocery purchases will be $ for $ cheaper in the US - we use our UK primary account in the US to avoid a double conversion charge - but what I was hoping, and I think I am reassured, that I can pack my freezer as usual with home baked goods etc not just stock up with grocery store food.

Bei ng just in Goshen, food prices are the same and with the dollar exchange you save 10 cents on every dollar in Canada. It is a better deal.

Just looking for simple answer.
I only plan to cross the border for a day visit not with my trailer but will have my dog my and my understanding is all I need is a copy of the shots is that all the shots or just the rabies? Do I need a photo ID of the dog?
Does the paperwork needs to be signed by my veterinarian?
little confused right now..
(Base is 1000 Island KOA next month)

Rabies certificate is signed or stamped by vet. All we've ever been asked for. Mind you crossing at 1000 islands last fall the US border guard refused to even look at the dog's paperwork. He just wanted to see our passports.
