hi, wife and i snowbird from alaska each winter and come back in spring. we always take a shotgun usually get the form online and fill it out except signing it and sign in front of customs officer and pay the fee, no problem. last year my son in law in alaska wanted a case of kentuckey burbon so i bought a locking box to put it in so it could be sealed and all was well, also dont forget the insurance card for canada from insurance agent for automobile insurance. we have never been hasseled just be polite and truthful and have paper work ready.

I found these travel regulations on-line:

Canada - http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p.../cis_1082.html

Mexico - http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_p...s/cis_970.html

Hope that this helps with most questions. This at least gives the rules. The rest is up to the border guards and the current mood. We've never had trouble at any border. We jst stayed polite and stayed within their guidlelines. Happy travels!

Hello I am A Canadian we have the same problems as you Americans crossing in the States it is hit & miss . From Canada you can't bring in any meat or potatoes, they do allow us to bring in our great Canadain beer that I share at our stop overs at camp spots limit to 24 beers.Some time they stop us & go inside the unit( make a stink about allowing you to go in with them one crossing they wouldn't let us follow them in but at another crossing they told me they were not allowed in without you present) go figure. Most times we pass right on though without a problem you just never know what they will ask you when they will check you so take off your sunglasses & look them in the eye is the most important thing to do. & Good luck .
