As the Canadian Immigration Officer #3 said, “Canada will be a short post, eh?”, this will be a short post.
We drove 8 hours from Southern Idaho up to Sweet Grass, Montana to cross into Canada and head into the National Parks. We had a great plan outside of visiting the parks. We were going to reunite with a friend we made in New Zealand as well as meet up with and pick up Aaron’s brother Johnny and then head into Washington. We were giddy with excitement as we drove to the border; I mean this would be Apollo’s first time out of the country!!
I’m not sure if it was the truck or Aaron’s beard that made the first Immigration Officer question us, but she did and off to get background checks we went! Just a small snag in our awesome two week adventure to Canada. Unfortunately, Canada doesn’t let anyone in their country that has ever been to court it seems. Which meant our time in Canada was spent in the immigration building and then with a form in hand, sent back to America.
If you are planning a trip to Canada and have been to court for anything, I’d double check that they will let you in. This is not the first time this has happened to someone I know.
As for us, we prefer our maple syrup from Vermont anyway.
