Hmm, now that’s a question I’ve never heard anyone ask before.  I’m not a routine border crosser but I’ve only been asked about guns, fish and alcohol.

 

I’ve read my documents and haven’t seen anything relating to gas either.  If you don’t get an answer before the 16th I’ll ask for ya when I cross over!

So 25 or 30 years ago I remember them being sticklers on extra gas and we would have to pay duty on whatever they considered to be to be "extra".  To the best of my recollection that quit happening maybe 20 years ago.  These days we cross mainly at Baudette both summer and winter and are averaging between 3 and 8 5-6 gallon gas cans per trip and myself or any of my friends have never paid gas duty in the past 20 years.

I was told by an officer that they will allow what the officer deems to be  a reasonable amount for the trip. That was 3 years ago . Sounds like it is a discretion call on there part as apposed to a fixed amount .

I was camping up at leech last weekend and in the site next to me was a campground host.

He was a retired border guard. I remembered this post so I asked him about it.

His response was if you had more gas then you needed for your trip then they would start asking questions.

The biggest with him at the border was attitude from the people crossing.

We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.

 

I thought that was pretty good!

    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
