Hello Folks! My son and I are planning a road trip from Seattle back up to AK in a sweet Honda Odyssey we're buying from my husband's grandmother. (I'm finally giving up my youth, my pride, and my 13 year old CR-V and fully embracing my role as minivan-driving hockey mom.) I'm wondering if anyone has any advice about the border crossing into Canada, the one on the way to Vancouver. I've never driven into Canada, have only really ever had a layover there, so I'm rather a newbie in this area of travel. We've got passports, I'm going to have a notarized letter from my husband giving permission to transport my son across the border, and we're going to have paperwork and insurance in order on the minivan, which will not yet be registered to me. I'm a little fuzzy on what to declare and what to definitely not bring besides obvious contraband -- I was thinking of having no food whatsoever on board and stocking up in Vancouver. Other than that, we'll only have camping gear (no stoves or anything), basic travel supplies, and a box of kid's presents that were dumped on us last trip that we didn't have room for flying back. I've got a 2013 Milepost (THE travel guide for that route), but it's a little scant in the part about crossing the border. Anyone have any thoughts about the border crossing or the drive up to AK?
