pretty sure this is absolutely not true. AFAIK, if you have an "enhanced drivers liscence" or a nexus pass, you don't need a passport, but otherwise you do.

I heard there's a native reserve in quebec on the canadian side that is on the boarder, and in canda police aren't allowed on native reserve property unless they're called there. Anyone know any ways to hop the boarder into the states? Other than White rock

yes, this is true if you have an 'enhanced driver's license' like the one like @andwhoareyou mentioned. it's designed for those that live in border states to cross more easily into Canada and back on business/recreation trips. Remember it has to be the "enhanced" version, not a regular driver's license.

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
    $70.75 of $75.00
    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
    $70.75 of $100.00
    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
    $70.75 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.

I don't represent this site at all, but "supposedly", the Couchsurfing site is getting their asses whipped by the Covid-19 situation and may soon shut down, just a heads up for anyone who also uses it
