All 3 Nexus lanes were stalled with all cars told to turn off engines this morning at around 10AM. Three dogs were sent out to sniff all the cars, one black F150 had the dog sniffing for a long time and eventually the border guard opened the liftgate and hopped on with the dog to rummage through everything the truck had in the back...

What should've been a quick 10 min gas run turned into a 25 min gas run

Because it's dumb shit like this that some border guards love to use to revoke your nexus.

Pretty sure it was a hypothetical question, not that he actually tried doing it...

Yeah you won't be able to sneak her through nexus.. If you try they will almost always take your nexus card away.

how much are duties taxes on a 1L bottle of alcohol (think Red label)? Is it cheaper than BCL once everything is paid for? I'll be going on a same day trip.

Just thinking out loud here...

Not worth it for a day trip. Huge surcharge on liquor.
Ask someone who is going on a trip to bring you one back hassle free.

it depends on the type of alcohol, alc % by volume, size of bottle and country of origin. there are online calculators you can look up. don't be surprised if duty and tax doubles your purchase price.

Just got back from trip to Bellingham. Fred Meyer gas was $2.63 a gallon for regular. Wtf? How low can you go takes on a whole new meaning. Meanwhile, gas at Superstore in Abbotsford was 98 cents a litre, counting in the Superbucks (7 cents off per litre). At these prices, maybe those cheap asses from Richmond can come out to the mini meets in Vancouver. LOLOLOLOL.

j/k

Phnom Penh.

(No, seriously, there's one in downtown Seattle - Chinatown area - and it's AMAZING. One of my favorite places to eat, second only to the "O.G." Phnom Penh in Vancouver's Chinatown)

Border guard tonight was such an asshole...

Him: Where were you?
Me: Shopping in Bellingham.
Him: What was the purpose you were shopping for?
Me: Christmas gifts.
Him: Any alcohol or Tobacco?
Me: None.
Him: Don't lie.
Me: ???
Him: What was the purpose of the trip?
Me: Christmas shopping...
Him: Christmas shopping? A kilo of cocaine and a handgun could be Christmas shopping, I'm going to ask you one last time; what did you do in the US?!
Me: *lists everything i bought and did*
Him: Hands passports back while shaking his head.


Wowwwww... Crossed the border a million times never had something like that...

^They want you to be very very precise now. I had a female border guard get angry at me before and she taxed a $120 value item

You might as well list everything upfront right away. Who knows, if you list a lot of things down to your last item they won't tax you since it's a lot of paperwork involved

Lol, I guess "Christmas shopping" is pretty ambiguous. I'll usually give a value right away, then answer any questions the border guard might have. If they ask me what I bought I usually just summarize the category of items (i.e. automotive parts, household items, cloths, groceries, etc...).
