    Default Increased Security at Canadian Border

    Here's a link to an article about increased security at the Canadian border.

    We go to Canada often, for both caching and general shopping. We've have noticed recently that, in addition to the usual driver's license check and the wquestions about what you've brought back, they take our driver's licenses into the building and we wait about 5 more minutes. Evidently the "background check" has been going on for some time.

    But the wait is minimal, and we STRONGLY encourage you to try caching in Canada for a change. There are some really interesting sights and history.

    No, no... If someone doesn't like it here, let them go. We just want to keep out the people who come to Maine because they "like the way of life", and then want t ostart changing things! LOL!

    Well, I guess we have to be ESPECIALLY careful about who enters the US from Campobello!

    Well, I know for a fact that there's a ferry from Campobello to Deer Island - I'll sneak off that way! LOL!
