We’ve crossed this border on Highway 61 at least a dozen times now. It’s the go-to for our trips up to Thunder Bay and western Ontario. 2009, 2010, and a bunch more times.
In 2009: 269866. Hwy 61, Canada Border Crossing. 8:10am Friday.
Like all other US-Canada crossing from previous years, we didn’t get any issues about our WVO. Since we were at a “rural” crossing, we asked us to get out of the car and enter the premises, which we did precisely as they requested. Upon entering the building, they said, “Guys, I see that you don’t have a problem parking here.” They never asked us to move our car, but in retrospect, we probably should have assumed they didn’t want us to leave our vehicle in the only border crossing lane.
As you drive up to TB, there are all these amazing bluffs on the horizon. The terrain is substantially different than the woods up in Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota that we grew up in.
If we hurry, we can make it to Hoito and get some pancakes before they stop serving breakfast!
