I made the mistake 2 years ago loading up the cooler from the freezer and lost it all at the border, save for chicken (I don't think I would even try chicken this year). We are planning on another trip in September and plan on bringing very little food except maybe a few canned goods/packaged goods such as hot chocolate, coffee for the first night or 2. My firewood was ok on the way down and even tho it was from my own woodpile in the back of the house, the remainder was not ok to bring back, no firewood can be brought into Canada. We did not try to bring any meat or produce back and had shopped for the day or ate at truck stops (which is where we stayed over night along the way). Looking forward (depending on a few things) to our trip this year and a little wiser from our last trip. Actually did a route with Google Earth, we are going to almost retrace our trip from when we picked up the scamp
in 2004, just hope it is not as nerve racking this time.
