Baudette border changes

6 posts in this topic

Was wondering if anyone knows what the new little satellite station is for they built on the US side (by where you stop to pick up duty free)? Also, what are the new yellow towers for?

We cam back today and asked the same question. The new yellow towers are for sensing radiation. The one on the way into Canada was not known yet, but speculation was some kind of gate for if there is an amber alert or something of the sort.

When I went up on the 10th of June, My brother and I got stopped at the new station they are building on the American side. Two agents were outside, one checked our vehicle the other asked two questions 1)Do either of you have more than $10,000 cash and 2) Did we have any military grade weapons on board? After that they let us through and we picked up our duty free items.

The same kind of shack is going up at the I-falls crossing. They will staff it on occasion to ask questions to people leaving the country, but they already have been doing it. i'd say about 1-in-4 trips across they stop us on the way out and ask us about money, etc....

We are truly safe from canadians..

yeah the building they got up on the U.S side is an outgoing booth. I talked to a Customs agent and he told me about it. They can check your vehicle before you leave the country. More security I guess. Your plates are entered in there system when you leave. So i guess they know how long you were in Canada if you got checked when you leaving the U.S. Them yellow towers didnt come cheap either I was told. Seems like all the border crossings ( US side) have them now since I have been making more trips into Canada for work I cross at different places and see the same setup. they can (will) check you when you leave the country, when you enter Canada and when you return to the USA. Just doing their job.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
