Dwight,

That's awful!

Paraphrasing a certain service station employee in North Dakota:

You Canadians must be stupid to allow your government and the beer companies do that to you , If that happened here, We would have shot the bast***. :laugh :laugh :laugh :laugh

I thought affordable beer was a birthright in the Great White North! :cheers

You're Right it's awful!

Prices here are terrible. I like Swisher Sweets little cigars. A pack of twenty in Washington cost me $1.99 last week near Kalaloch Campground in Olympic National Park. Here in Vancouver the same pack is $13.50 cdn

No wonder the Canadian custom guys opened all our water bottles and made me pour a little water out of our fresh water tank the last time we entered Canada!

They didn't find anything, but I did get a lecture, because Americans are allowed to bring one (1) case of 24 cans into Canada ... I was carrying a 30-can case.

Well, actually, I was carrying two 30-can cases of beer ... one for Pam and one for me.

I pleaded ignorance ... saying I though the law allowed one "case" of beer per person, not specifying the number of cans in the case.

The officer said, "Well, using that logic, what's to stop a guy from bringing across a 100-can case of beer, eh?"

Camping costs

We camp in Washington vs. BC as much as possble now. We figure by the time we buy a couple tanks of gas and a case of beer, not to mention the cheaper groceries in Washington our camping is free compared to here. You know what BC stands for don't you?.....................Bring Cash

The BC government has handed the operation of Provincial Parks to private operators who are never there at night so our experience in BC has been that there is always at least one group of rowdys who party into the wee hours.....not the peace and quiet we look for.

I had no idea there was a limit on the beer Americans could bring in to Canada. Makes sense though, the government gets their cut on everything you buy here and their greed is limitless. 14.5% sales tax for example

Beer Prices

Canadian beer is good beer but when you can buy Canadian Beer in the U.S. for half of what you pay for it at home it makes you wonder

Charles,
Did he let you bring in the second case or did he make you drink it on the spot. Or did he "confiscate" it for the "governments" sake?

Pam could bring in one case.

I could bring in one case.

So we had two cases ... but they were 30-can cases ... the law states each US person can bring one 24-can case into Canada.

He remarked on the 30 versus 24 cans ... but he let me through.

They really looked high and low through both the tow vehicle and the trailer, looking (I thought) for guns and drugs ... but in reality, I found out later, the Canadian customs guys were looking for cigarettes and booze.

Scotties RV park

Scotties RV park in Creston BC. Just north of Idaho. I had no idea this little gem of an RV park has such an exquisite view! And the RV park really is a gem for one or two nights to take the edge off traveling.
