OK. Who knows how much it will cost me if I take more than I am allowed

What about liqueur What if I take more than one bottle.

To be safe, look up the Canada Customs site.

If you're over I think you have to pay provicial sales tax and GST

If you have extra booze they take it away from you. :(

Keep reciepts for things you are going to admit to buying down there and burn all the reciepts for stuff you didn't buy down there.



PS... I don't need a reciept for that filter.

A little 'off road' drive to get them all dirty and who'* to know.


I know they upped the limit a few years ago, but they still don't like non-emergency repairs or modifications for some reason. :(

Too bad you ain't driving a 92-99. There are a few spots you can hide stuff...

Like the center console...the, uh, "trap door" to the a/c duct is a good spot to hide a small bottle of alky

And they will rip the car apart. If nothing is found it will be see you later and you will need to put the car back together again.

Ya ya ya.....rip the car apart....


I'm not going to hide anything and have all my receipts so I have nothing to worry about.

The limit after 7 days.......I will have been down here for 12.......is $750.

I am not going to claim the tires or the new lamb seat covers.
.....or the turn signal multifunction stalk.......or the company magnetic advertising labels.

I will still have about $650 to claim. That includes the $50 K&N Air Filter for a fellow member who PM'd me for it from close to where I live. We pay $100 for them minimum.

And I will only be bringing the bottle of Anejo Patron.
Guess John and Shadd will get the wine...........and Bill can keep what'* left of the his well stocked bar.

Just got another PM from my son......he wants new runners, jeans,.........

I can't believe the low prices down here.

......I'm like a kid in a candy store.
