I am pondering the idea of going up into Canada if shit doesn't work out for Oregon. I am wanting to know how easy it is to cross the border. My boyfriend and I both have S.S.C. cards and passports that are valid, other than that just general info about anything else for trying to get in and just sell his art & my jewelry. The info would be MUCH appreciated =]

pretty easy to cross the border so long as you are organized. I recommend springing for a bus ticket from north of seattle to vancouver and check out some tour dates, say you are going to visit vancouver island and goingto ____________ festival.

Ya Canadian customs can be a bitch, I have a harder time coming back home than I ever do heading into the States..kind of odd, you would think it was the other way around.

yep, same for me. I remember back after 911 when they were talking about the porous canadian border, thinking how ludicrous that was. Passport is harder to get too, and its only good for 5 years (US is good for 10 I think, more than 5 anyway)

Me and a buddy crossed from Detroit into Windsor, ON, and we were totally having an arguement about when we had entered the US, when the inspector lady interrupted us by saying we could go on through. She didn't ask much. I did not go down the way I came up though, so who knows if location was a factor.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
