To family, just a reminder that we don't have cell phones in Canada...should be back in Alaska on Monday night. Internet is spotty, but we should have it tomorrow night too in Haines Junction.
As for crossing the border...some of you will remember that we had a heck of a time getting into Canada back in mid-May just above Bonner's Ferry in Idaho at the Eastport Entrance. Today the border guard was more forth coming about why they stopped us. He said that there is a person with the same first, middle and last name as me who is "Red Flagged", but has a totally different birth date as I do. He said, "You had problems coming into Canada back in 2012, right? I said, "No sir, I had troubles this year back in May when they searched us...never tried to get into Canada back in 2012." "Oh, I see...the birth date is different...there is another person with your name, middle name too, who is the problem, but not the same birth date. If they give you problems coming back from Haines, tell them to look at the birth date." I thanked him, and we drove on...at least now we know the "WHY" to what took place back in May.
