When we told him we had apples, he asked us what colour, then appeared to be trying to look them up (with no good result) In the end we pitched our apples, green onions and something else. My friend was totally frosted when we got to the Walmart in Montana and there were the exact brand of grapes they made her throw out! She remains bitter to this day. It took no more than 10 minutes, though, and the people were pleasant enough. Just don t bring any fruit or veg. But bring your own cheese, because ours is way more expensive up here!
Does anybody know what happens to the stuff they confiscate? Free lunch?

I keep scanned copies of all my sales slips for my camera gear and bikes etc on my laptop as well as a list on my phone of all the serial numbers etc and when/where purchased - never been asked but its handy to have if I do get asked or its stolen while traveling.

When I worked at the border in Windsor Ontario( many years ago), I can attest to the fact that is was destroyed, I could have cried a few times when I saw all that good liquor going down the drain

Crossing into Canada one time we were asked if we had any fresh fruit. We did. We had two apples and told the agent that we had them. He said "you are not allowed to bring fresh fruit into Canada. When you get to where you're going, throw them away." When we got to where we were going, we threw them away...into our stomachs.
