be nice if the Travco's are able to make a trip up there. (My brakes still arent up to my standards) Used to run 401 & QEW when running from Clev, Buff, then on to Det. Liked Paris, Ont. as a good place to stop... How difficult is it to cross the border in a RV with papers, passport, ins. etc. etc. and roam about the province instread of a strict route as posted with customs on a certificate by a company...Curious

Yea... that would be my problem since I always have my toys with me. I would have to rent a storage unit and stash all my goodies on the U.S side. :D

I have a man toy or two also... Like an umbrella in these times, I always take at least one with me... I feel that Up north could possibly be like OZ where they were mandated to turn in all of their personal protection and then crime rose 40% by the baddies due to knowing all citezens (SP) are now unarmed. Would a "lock box" bolted or cabled to prevent theft be a viable option in a rv crossing the borders?
