Why so early??? Border should not be bad. I have Nexus which helps.

Sitting by Seneca Lake at the bar in the afternoon seems like a much nicer idea than being in the car.

Are any of you folks going to be declaring anything at the border, or just driving through with your gear?

Its not staying in the US, no need to declare anything.

I think Amin and I will probably be leaving the GTA around 11am or so if anyone wants to leave a bit later.

I'm so jealous of your guys. Life got in the way of this trip for me

This is a bucket list item for me that's now going to have to wait until next year I guess

Have fun and remember to keep it shiny side up

I meant declaring on the Canadian side so we don't have any hassles bringing our stuff back into the country. I was planning on bringing my jack, impact wrench and socket set just in case and they all look pretty new since I don't use them too often.

I have never had an issue in the past including having 5 or more bikes & gear in the trailer on our Smokie Mountian trips.

You should be more worried about a cavity search.

Your name and being brown are the least of your worries - hopefully they will let that Pcar across the border..... Shady.......

Dont recall the process, but you can declare what you have and they will itemize (and possibly even sticker non serialized items) and give you a declaration card. You simply just give the card to the border agent if questioned on re-entry. I have not had any issues. I was questioned about my track wheels once - but when I said I brought them with me for the track and suggested she looked at them, she just sent me on my way.

Cool. I'll pull over and do a declaration. I'm planning on bringing a bunch of stuff up from the US in a couple weeks, so I want my border crossings to be as smooth as possible.

Prepare a manifest which I am pretty sure you can find online.Allow for a lot more time as you will have to go the office as they will not do this at booth.I personally think you do not need to this as I have never had an issue with the equipment in a private passenger car,and yes I have been asked about extra tires & tools.When we raced in the US and we had a couple of cars & all the gear we needed for a endurance race weekend we used a manifest.

I should have read the CSBA site before posting. No need to declare, as I can show them e-receipts for the major stuff i'll be bringing.

Don't worry, last year I went over with a full car and no problems with either border. I didn't declare anything since nothing is staying in the US.
