Our wait was about 1.5 hours. We were able to get to the D street exit from I-5. From there we filled up at Chevron then waited in line to get to the duty free. After that it was a short wait and we were through.

That and there was a Seahawks game too. Even heading back north on the I-5 from Portland, I took I-405 to bypass downtown Seattle traffic. That was a good choice for sure.

When you're bringing back used stuff over the border, do you just tell the border guard you're bringing back a used item, state the purchase price and some sort of proof of the said purchase price?

If you paid via Paypal, just print out the transaction statement and use that. They've barely ever looked at the receipts when I've gone across the border.

That's what I figured... Looks like a Facebook conversation will have to do

Got to truck crossing at 6. Lined didn't move for 15 minutes. Cut to Peach Arch to test my luck and got through in 50 minutes. Good thing I didn't convince my gf to wait it out and cross later at night lol.

I went last evening just to Blaine, premium gas was $3.60 so I assume regular was around $3.40ish a gallon and here I thought $1.26/L was cheap in the lower mainland.

Spent maybe 20 min total waiting line and in the US.

Is that the cash only place?

Is that wiith the usual 3 off member price? Some people have really scary discounts, 'cause they buy so much in groceries there. Unfortunately, I don't. They advertise you can earn up to a dollar off a gallon. WTF?

Anyway, Bellingham as of now is the cheapest place to get gas in all of Washington. How convenient for us, eh?

This should be in the food section, but.........

If you are in Pike's Place Market, do not, I repeat, do not go to the Chinese restaurant there. It has got to be the worst place of all time. The food was average at best, but the prices, wow!

Pike Place Chinese Cuisine - Downtown - Seattle, WA | Yelp

The place must have gone downhill since some of those reviews, either that or Americans don't know what good Chinese food is supposed to taste like). After I sat down and checked the prices, I was shocked. I ordered a bowl of wonton soup. $10.75. After ordering, I asked how many pieces and lady said 5 pieces! When I got the soup, there were 8 pieces in there - must have been the eyes popping out of my head reaction that got me the three extra pieces. I know it's Pike's Place and prices are going to be high. Anyway, I figured the food must be good, right? I don't mind paying high prices if the food is good. Nope. I'm stretching it when I say average. Old mothers of poor family trick - drown everything in pepper. I've never had wonton soup so smothered in pepper.

I check the bill when leaving. Gratuity added already and charged for tea. Okay, I 've seen that before, but add that to everything else and wow.

Couple behind me ordered fish - I overheard 90 bucks!

They don't have a website, but the menu that's on the Internet is nowhere near what the actual menu is like. They must have changed ownership/management, but damn........ I felt a little ripped off.

Later that day, went to Tulalip and had their buffet (seniors discount, ftmfw!). All is well now - bad taste in mouth is gone. Now, if I can only make my wife forget about me dragging her into that damn restaurant at Pike's Place, I'll be good. BTW, no menu for viewing and once seated, I don't get up and leave. Maybe it's time to change that habit.

Goodyear wipers are $4.99 a pair at Costco Bellingham. It's a limit of 2 though (one pair).

Got there yesterday somewhat early and there was no lineup for gas. As usual saw the buddy guys with their trunks full of milk and jerry cans.

So what I've been hearing is that bellingham is kinda dead now due to the currency rates and relatively cheap gas prices in Canada. True?

I've seen shorter lineups the last little while. Not sure why, but I'm not complaining.

Not on the weekend imo. Went last Sunday both inside and for gas. Wanted to kill myself in both lineups.

Went earlier to Burlington, and omg it was so nice and calm. Calmer than any Costco here or in Bellingham. Gas was 3.19/gal as well, but a quarter tank would've been gone by the time I got home so it really isn't worth it to drive all the way down there to get gas only.

You need a certain amount of points to get the dollar off. Not sure of the points conversion rate, but if it means saving on diesel in my case, I might alternate between going there and to Chevron on my monthly trips. I was getting 10 cents off with my aunt's card.
