Great read so far. Yep, even when it was still OK to go into Canada with a drivers license and original birth certificate, I got some serious stink-eye on the way back into the US. Maybe it was because we were bringing Grimmboys 640 back into the US after the Heroes Legend - Paris/Dakar and we seemed suspicious with all that paperwork (much cheaper transport from Canada). We were at the border for a while...
HBN - I sold my blue/white GS like yours to a guy from NS. They must like going that way.
