Silly question but I have the new passport with the chip inside - is that scannable for the Ready lanes too? Or is it just the EDL?

For those in the Fraser Valley, USA Gas (Tesoro) and Super Duper in Sumas, Wa. has gas @ $3.69 / gal for regular. It's been that way since last Friday. Close to 10 cents cheaper than Costco, Bellingham. Good old fashion gas price wars?

Beware of deep pothole in the southbound Nexus lane. Felt like I lost my front wheels from it.

Also, it's the second time this week I've had my truck and car searched. Wednesday night it was a full search and this morning a trunk check with the 1001 questions routine.

That pothole has been around for ages. I wonder why they haven't fixed it...

I wonder if they do more searches if they see you going back and forth more often with a truck?

I have been driving a small hatch to pick up my items for the past year, and I've only been searched once (open all doors and hatch)

Glad you posted this because it's a bitch of a pothole.

Yeah, my little doughnuts for tires took a beating. I guess I missed it the last couple of times I've been in that lane, LOL.

Also, for those who give a damn, they're back!!! Costco Red Velvet cupcakes. Yes, those delicious artery clogging, heavenly tasting, way oversized to eat in one sitting, cupcakes. Waited a whole year for it. And, they're on sale. I still had the receipt from last year to remind me. On sale for the month of August only. Then they're gone. (Okay, maybe till end of September).

Nope. I have a BC Services Card and I remember them telling me it won't work.


As a side note, the Americans have EDL's as well. It's voluntary just like here. I wish our border crossings had ready lanes.

Had the pleasure of being welcome to Canada by a female officer named Ma earlier today at Peace Arch. She was by far the prettiest CBSA officer I've seen, very courteous and responds with a smile too.

Is she South Asian by any chance? I didn't see her name tag (part of the no lookey in that area, program), but she is cute as a button and vey bubbly.

I think for the most part she is, though she seems to be a mix of something as well to me

That'd be her. She is like the most cheerful border guard I've met at any border crossing. I've seen her twice. Once I talked with her for nearly five minutes.......... damn the people behind me. She wanted to know more about the casinos I go to, LOL. And no, I wasn't hitting on her. She could be my granddaughter, ffs. <------- had to put that in there before Himac comments, as usual.

Positive people are contagious. She definitely made my day. Hopefully, she doesn't become negative over the years working at a place where people tend to be dickheads (the travellers).

I'm also glad you said "pretty" and not hot, beautiful, gorgeous, etc. She is very pretty - hit the nail on the head.

Went to pick up a package a couple nights ago around 11pm for the first time. Quick and painless, very easy.

Only thing I fucked up on was not realizing it was Friday night so had to wait 30m going in and 20 mins coming back. If only I waited 1-2 hours more before I left.

It's a 50/50 chance whichever crossing you travel through.

Just take Godwin's advice.

Anyone recall how busy the Nexus lanes are at the Peace Arch going south during long weekends? I guess if the regular lanes are backed way up, just getting to the Nexus lane will be difficult.
