Crossing the Border: Michigan: Day 22: July 6, 2016

20160706_161128Louise Speaks:  After leaving Sudbury we headed towards Saulte Ste. Maria which is where we were going to enter the USA.  I better never hear again about border security or racial profiling.  As we approached 100_9784the border, it is a window, like a toll both.  The border patrol for the USA slides open the window and asks for our papers.  We hand him everything, he looks at them…I guess he looked at them, and hands them back.  Now remember we are two people with two passports from two different countries, and no questions.  Because we don’t have to have front license plates in AZ, and we have the plates from an RV 100_9787club, he asks us what state that is.  We tell him it’s a club.  He says what plates are on the back?  We said Arizona.  He says have a nice trip.  ARE YOU SERIOUS??  We have an RV.  With enough storage bins to hold a dozen people and he doesn’t even look inside??  REALLY??  So they only search vehicles where the driver looks suspicious?  This border security for both countries is a joke.
