Or is there a particular reason why they are being somewhat vague about the restrictions?
Short story: About 6 years ago I was returning to the U.S from Calgary, Canada. The U.S. customs agent asked me if I was bringing in Cuban cigars. I said no, then asked him what they did with the Cuban cigars they confiscate. "Oh, we burn them," he said with a smile, "one cigar at a time." I like an honest government employee.

I just happened to be looking for information yesterday and came across this link

https://help.cbp.gov/cgi-bin/customs...php?p_faqid=82


Its quite a good summary but does still leave some areas open and subject to change at any time!

We hope to head for Lousiana & Florida this weekend.


Brian.


PS to "MacFrodge"

if you like Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale, you might want to try
Rickards IPA - excellent!

Only thing is that at this point in time, you cannot buy it in cans or bottles in Ontario, only 58 liter kegs! I checked with Molson's who make Rickards.

One of our local pubs has Rickard's IPA it on tap - so now that is my favourite spot to take Connie out for supper! In fact we might just go one more time before hitting the road for Florida!

58 liter kegs, eh?

That'd make quite the party...

Think I could take a keg that size across the border?

prob'ly not...

Yeah, I wish we had eaten the beef instead of the salmon on our last night camped at Waterton Lakes. I hated to see the beef go. We had planned to grill it on the US side at Many Glacier.
