Routes that go into Canada/ Mexico

I've been to Canada over 100 times. Crossed at Detroit, Buffalo, vancouver.in Canada, your required to be governed at 65 mph. I agree, if paperwork is right, going into Canada is easy, and now that pot is legal in Canada, getting back to the us is even more difficult. My opinion... If crossing in Detroit area, use the blue water bridge 30 miles north. Buffalo, queenston/Lewiston bridge.. only did Vancouver like 8-10 times. Used the main bridge, no issues. My truck is normally set at 73 mph. So my company pays extra for Canada.

No, Wish that was my rig. I'm in a pos freightliner (09) it's very well maintained, but, at 700k, it rattles and rolls down the road.

My first trip to Canada, got pulled in for an inspection! Not worried, just ate 90 min of clock. 3rd trip now, no issues, on the 401 in, and the 402 back, due to 75s being closed. Thanks for all the advice, it helped.

Thanks for the info, Guess I'll have low/no problems, They didn't give me any details, other than going through michigan and cross there, or thru Buffalo and cross by the falls, You interested? The michigan route I'm expected to run there and back in one shift ( 550 miles ). through Buffalo, it's closer to 675 miles round trip. So, I was told by another driver it's easier to get in to Canada than get in the US. He's retiring in 3 months so, I have a little time. Guess I found a cooler place to drive for the summer than texas.
