I went from U.S. to canada a few years back, the wife and kids and i were out for a road trip, nice cool day just felt like getting out and going
some where, so i let the kids pick where we turned, we ended up at the border, there was a huge check station, or what ever they are called, security
everywhere, checking cars left and right, even had one pulled over and going through it, i didnt want to deal with anything like that, so i turned
left and went down a road that ran paralell to the border, about 2 miles down the road was a dirt road that took off across the border and into
canada, me being me, i said , hey kids wana go to canada, naturally they were all for it, so i took a right, up the dirt road, nothing on the road,
farm land on both sides, no cars, no border patrol, no nothing, i drove for about 4 to 5 miles and then came to a cross road, took a right and made it
back to the paved road that the check point was on.. so beings we were just out for a day trip and not a long trip, i turned around and went back the
way i came and went back into the u.s. and headed home.
I was amazed that with all the security, just a couple of miles down the road there was nothing and one could pass from country to country without
I dont know if they have changed things, i have not been in that area since the road trip, but am still amazed as to how simple it was.
