Most of the bases have been covered here, except the kids. They each need some form of gov't issued I.D. (I think). Pets NEED current rabies docs. One should ALWAYS carry car and trailer related paperwork, ie proof of ownership/insurance papers, etc.
For you folks coming from the United States of America to the Fort, you might want to consider crossing at the Aldergrove (B.C.) crossing. It is closest and most direct route to camping at the Fort.
From Bellingham, north off I-5, you'd want to take the Guide Meridian Exit (not sure of exit # even though I use it alot in our tours in N.W. WA!!!) and keep on heading North till you hit the snow line
Top up with gas at the station right before the border.
NOTE: this crossing is NOT open 24 hours a day, but I'm not sure when it shuts down either. It DOES open at 8:00A.M.
Leave all firearms and weapons of mass destruction back on the farm. Customs Canada does NOT like competition
Can't wait to see all these new fresh faces!!
As we are on holiday(s), the Trailer Goddess
and I are going to try an "power park" ....get there early, maybe even that Thursday morning (We have sooo far to travel to get there from way up here on the hill!!)
There is food available at the on site diner (GREAT GRUB TOO) and 'town' with all its touristy shops AND the refurbished Fort is only a short walk into town, MAYBE 1/2 mile. so far no one in our group has mentioned anything about our usual pot-luck meeting so I can't
recommend anything you folks might want to consider bringing to the communal buffet/meeting
but finger food(s) are always a good thingy
Don't forget there is also an inground swimming pool here folks!!!
