Thoughts On Travel To Canada

market-ticker.org / by Karl Denninger / 2017-09-23

A few random thoughts on my recent trip (with Sarah for her 21st birthday) on our trip through Canada, including the Niagara area, Toronto and Algonquin Park.

First, the welcome from the border agent at the Windsor crossing was amusing.  These guys and gals (by the way, all who we encountered on both sides of the border were guys) have an “interesting” job; they have to see hundreds of people per day, and only a few are worthy of more than a short list of questions and a look-see.  Figuring out which, so you spend the time on those who shouldn’t come, obviously is a learned experience.  Nonetheless the one dude at the Windsor crossing who we drew was funny; after the usual questions as to where we were headed, how long we intended to stay, etc, he asked if we had any firearms or weapons in the vehicle.  “No” was the reply, of course, since we didn’t.  He then continued: No mace or Bear spray?  I again said “No” and he remarked that since we were going to Algonquin we might want the Bear Spray, and after a nice pregnant pause he chuckled.

It was an interesting little quip on what is otherwise a necessary and amusing formality.

I haven’t been to Canada since 9/11 when they imposed passport requirements (you used to be able to enter and return by land using just a driver license; not any more) and while I expected quite a bit more formal procedure than previously it was only slightly more time-consuming and we were waved through.

Out decision was to “glamp, sorta” — in other words, tent camp in campgrounds with organized facilities.  Part of that is a money-saving issue, although around Niagara I doubt it saved much off-season (if anything) compared to cut-rate hotels.  On the other hand it was fun, I like sleeping outside, and as long as I have somewhere to ****, shower and shave it’s pretty much like being in a hotel as far as I’m concerned.  The weather cooperated nicely; we had zero rained-out days.
