I have gotten into the states coming from canada twice over the border with little to no hastle. Fucking walked over the vancouver border crossing with my dog. Coming back into canada was always a headache. Car searched top to bottom, bunch of stupid questions, etc. And im a canadian citizen with status. Surely dont expect a "Helcome home weary traveller. Had enough of those angry Americans eh?". So im guessing its a bitch for any lowly travellers crossing over. Fuck it, pretend youre a refuge. Theyll probly house you up n shit.

Im sure you could get away with it alot of places and times. But they do have rangers for sure. And some are huge, wouldnt get very far in a day. And conversely some are small national historic sites that you could not sneak onto unless you are willing to climb an old fort barrier to save a couple bucks and possibly look like a jackass. Hahaa

I've been crossing the border for years. The best way that I can sum it up is:

No matter which way you go: have your shit together.

Know what your story is when you cross. home or not.
work, housing, etc.
References with lies or truth or what the fuck ever mixed with confidence.

I've gotten just as much hassle every time back and forth, but I also line it all up and don't cross with people (in a personal vehicle) that don't get it.
If it ever comes down to it. I get out prior to crossing and (on the west coast) figure out how to pay for the $10USD bus from where ever USA to whatever CAD.

I say this as a white person who comes from a low class, but has learned to use my perceived economic status.
As always, feel free to pm me or call me out about anything.
I know it's not the same folks who aren't white and anyone who transcends traditional gender boundaries. folks with limited chosen fam. i know. hmu.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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
    $0.00 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.

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.
