Yea, I was interrogated that way and we were in a car. Really feels weird. Seems like Mexico was not as bad coming state side.

Love your videos I would love to travel but even if I gave up everything I have I still would not be able to afford to pay for the gas I'm on subs that I have seen disability disability sucks I only get $862 a month I love to watch women and you definitely not leaving you out of the woman traveling makes my heart of letter and love your videos

Lol get this. I live close to the boarder and when I was going over the borders for the first time in 10 years I got the third degree and all I was doing was going from BC to the states for cheaper meat and gas. I explain to the guy that I was only going to be a couple hours and he kept asking me three times if my car was my car and if it was in my name and I said yes it is and he says are you sure it's in your name and I says yes sir it sure is and then I even showed him the registration and my driver's license and then he ask me if I had any booze or weapons and I said no sir and for the first time he asked me if it was my car and I said yes sir you seen the registration and the next thing I was given a sticker to put on my windshield and I had to get out of my car on the other side of the border and my car was checked and then I noticed other WOMAN jumping out of their vehicle and I thought I I don't see any men here.. As I searched my vehicle I said to one of the guys what's with the guy at the custom is he prejudice against women and they said why would you ask that nice and full look at all the women around here and they're all getting their car checked out and it's a good thing it turned out okay but it was an ordeal and I felt like a criminal for nothing and I says what's with this and he says oh it's just a routine check. And I happen to be one of the pick me up out of a hundred people LOL. Yes whether you're a Canadian or whether you're from the states going over that border is question after question after question after question so when I heard you tell me this I laughed
Lois Mimi (1 day ago)
Cool... Hate you were put through the Interrogation ..... Glad that's over and your feeling better.
I know here in the USA our borders are pretty easy to sneak across but other countries do protect their borders and this appears to be a shock to some people. Sovereign countries do ask questions about foreigners coming into or through their country and so should we

You really should keep him on a leash. If he runs after another animal, it could end very bad near traffic.

Maybe my videos are not playing in order. Trying to watch your trip.

How did you get into Canada? Was it 20 questions there too? Had to cross border to get in.

Time for change the deals,when Bush made 3countries deal ,we never had deals at all.
B Haddock (6 days ago)
Just what were you expecting to be asked? Were you expecting to be waved through because of your skin colour? Did you think you have the right to enter another country unchallenged because you are an American and therefore somehow superior?
Anne Bell (7 days ago)
You are so right about getting the story straight ahead of time...sigh...my interrogation was going from Canada to the USA...and they had me pull my car in to be searched and held me for 4 hours...all because I was a female traveler ALONE...sigh...they thought it was odd that I would travel alone being female...REALLY?...OMG...it isn't just one side of the border that wants us enslaved with laws and so forth...it has become a global calling to have all us good citizens behaving our selves to the big powerful RULES...you are so right that this lifestyle must adjust to fit in between the rules and find a happy grey area to get through the border interrogations and so forth...pathetic really...happy travels...us Canucks (nick name for Canadians) are happy to have you Carolyn...have fun, EH?...LOL (PS...the female border guards seem to be more aggressive...I guess they have to be to prove something since we are still in a misogynistic society..and most of their superiors are male...sigh)

Wow. They have a border and a fence. Easier for illegal immigrants from Mexico to get into the USA, than USA legal citizens to get into Canada, lol.

Hi Carolyn I have a question for you. Do you listen to music or books on tape while driving.
richard c (9 days ago)
Does this person always have issues or is it me? You have to have some rules to follow or it would be chaos, we are a nation of laws. Maybe she should move to mexico or some other country, geez. They want to secure their boarders and protect its citizens you play by their rules, like it or not (dont go there).

*If you think that experiencing border crossing as a female tourist was fun and exiting {or not} ... You might try doing that 22 times in 18 months with one or more NEW semi-trucks en route from factory to dealer.*

Carolyn's RV Life then we need to hear about it.
Carolyn's RV Life (9 days ago)
From all the comments, i hear it's 100 times worse crossing into the US
Jo Jo (10 days ago)
You should've stayed home. We went on vacation to Canada one year. Food was terrible and they were very unfriendly and annoyed with outsiders. I couldn't wait to get back to the USA!
Carolyn's RV Life (10 days ago)
Jo Jo. wow sorry you had a bad time. My experience was completely different. Great food shopping and the friendliest happiest people I could meet. Loved Canada!
Gloria Metayer (11 days ago)
Now she knows how people of color feel when they are interrogated only it's not in Canada, it right here at home.

I like your blog? You are travelling and showing where you are going, very interesting. We like to see the daily life of a wanderer, from start to finish! Sorry you felt so stressed at the border, they have to be careful and keep Canada safe, they are a mean looking. Keep up the good travelling.
toledojeeper (13 days ago)
Sorry I don’t believe you.... why didn’t you at least record your “ integration “ you conveniently turned off your camera then ... well I knew you were going to say something derogatory about the authority’s. I think t you .... well let’s say don’t give accurate accounts of your “ stories”
Barbara Morton-Winters (13 days ago)
Isn't it to a pain to either way between our Cdn/USA border. I want to go to to Leelivet. Once through the border, you will find it quite pleasant and certainly an interesting country..

Why would anyone travel unarmed? Canada sucks...
Samantha Hill Burhop (14 days ago)
Being a Washingtonian, I've crossed at that border crossing many times. One year for our wedding anniversary, my husband & I went up to a concert to see America. We had the border guy laughing his butt off because we were going to Canada to see America.
biggestbrowneyes (14 days ago)
Good Video...Love the Country ! Enjoying yourself for sure ...Peace
Sounds like typical questions asked by any customs agents. I have been asked those same questions flying in and out of the country. And I was put through a search because they didn’t feel I had enough luggage for a woman who had been on vacation.
Carolyn's RV Life (14 days ago)
Kay, yes it was typical. I just wasn't prepared. I made the video to help other full time RVers and Nomads prepare for the questions they'll be asked. Thanks for watching.
Frank Smith (15 days ago)
your not a true liberal with that mindset :)
Carolyn's RV Life (14 days ago)
Frank, I think you might be surprised what most 'true liberals' believe. It's not what the conservative media want us to believe. That's why independent channels and personal one-on-one conversations are more important than every. IMHO> thanks for watching.
Carl Cutbill (15 days ago)
Wait until you go back into US
ALVIN KARPIS (16 days ago)
Questions from the border agent were not that big of a deal..Sounds like a DUI checkpoint.It's not that bad at the Canada border at Buffalo.Ive been waved through there a couple times.It seems you like to make a big deal out of normal procedures. Gets clicks,i guess.
LUKINGOOD1 (16 days ago)
how did they let you in canada with a full sewer tank ???
orange tabby (17 days ago)
They have every right to ask all of those questions and I'm glad they did. What's so weird about a country that actually cares to protect it's land and citizenry? You say that like it's a bad thing.
Carolyn's RV Life (17 days ago)
Orange, oh, no. I didn't think it was bad at all. I totally understand. And know that it's a million times worse to come into the US. I just wasn't prepared... as a full time RVer I had some concerns. I share my experiences in real time to help others prepare. That's all.. thanks for watching

K Butler (17 days ago)
How long can you stay in Canada, also passport?
K Butler (17 days ago)
What do they do if an American shows up, wanting refuge from the US (tromp, his, and his administration). That very well may happen.
And you are a American girl! Can you imagine what a person from 3º world have to handle in immigration? Even with money!?! Any entusiasm can low down about 30% after that.
Vickie Rabovsky (18 days ago)
They ask so much because you could just take up residence. I have travelled back and forth for 20 years and once detained and told to go back to Canada I was totally shocked because I lived in Connecticut with my American husband and Canadian kids. Scary! Enjoy your trip!
terry waller (20 days ago)
Hope you have a reservation at that RV park, if they call and you don't there may be a warrant for you.
Lainie Sinclair (20 days ago)
I suppose living a nomad's life you don't get much chance to watch the news. Somebody is trying to make enemies between us. That said, "Welcome" and I sincerely hope you enjoyed the beauty of the pacific north part o Canada.

Mussolini and Hitler were fascists. They were not socialists. And what did Karl Marx or Chavez ever do to harm humanity but try to free the poor from the chains of the rich?
Donny Anderson (20 days ago)
Carolyn's RV Life YOU'RE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T TRUST ITS CITIZEN'S TO CARRY FIREARMS!! ONE TINY STEP TO COMMUNISM!! Hitler was a socialist , Carl Marx was a socialist, Bento Mussolini was a socialist, Chavez is a socialist!! AND WE ALL KNOW HOW THINGS TURNED OUT FOR THOSE COUNTRIES!!
Donny Anderson (20 days ago)
Carolyn's RV Life YEAH IT'S GOT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH SOCIALISM!!! You're government tells you what to think and what to do!! The fact you changed you're national anthem so it would be gender neutral says it all!! The fact yours government dictates that you can't have weapons or even certain knives!! The government takes care of you!! Free medical free college huge welfare system!! You're government makes you're decisions for you!!! THAT'S THE DEFINITION OF SOCIALISM!!!
Carolyn's RV Life (20 days ago)
This has nothing to do with Socialism. ANd yes, we do have rights.
Donny Anderson (20 days ago)
It's true most laws benefit large corporations!! And it also benefits the state!! It's all about money money and money!!! States make huge profits off of violating our personal rights!! I've been pulled over several times by state troopers for BULLSHIT violations so they can shake down my home!! I Always refuse to allow them to search to my RV!! And they get PISSED and call the dogs!! They are just crap shootting!! What those assholes don't realize is that I'm a 30 year army veteran!! Retired a couple of years ago and decided to spend sometime on the road!!
TigerShark (20 days ago)
you should have hollered alah akbar
John Schwindt (20 days ago)
The excessive amount of laws are due to people being too stupid to resist them. Everyone needs protection from themselves and authoritarian leftists take advantage.... But yes the authoritarians on the right are all about lobbyists and big money.

No Politics just "Welcome to Canada" Carolyn, Drive Safe sweety! you will love the drive north. I hitch hiked the Alaskan Highway back in 1977 to the Yukon (Whitehorse) the people are super all the way up...

I can’t believe all this angst about the Canadian American border. Of course it looks just like the US. Retail, manufacturing are all the same.
Kevin Burgess (20 days ago)
You're lucky that you got through it time. After they build the wall you'll be stuck.
Pj Cramer (20 days ago)
I'm sure canadians, and others go through more rigorous interrogation at our borders. Just smile and say have a nice day.
Joann Davis (20 days ago)
Crossing into another country is not a right for any traveler it is a privilege. We Canadians are friendly and laid back but have a right to police our borders as you do . The questions you were asked were very standard . The financial questions were to prove that you could support yourself while visiting our country and would not be working without proper documentation Don’t understand why you were surprised. Try crossing as a foreigner into the USA. Same experience. Different country. Different rulles

Oh god forbid, a country that asks questions before letting you in their country. Oh the humanity!!! Guess it's a good thing you're white. Could you imagine what a person of color or a LBGT would have dealt with? 😂😂
yokehuatgoh (22 days ago)
sound like normal border crossing questions, no biggie. heck, i would ask the same questions if i were the border agents.
Tom Black (22 days ago)
So crazy! It's almost like they actually care who they let into their country. Their country, their rules, they can ask whatever they want. Most countries do enforce their soverign borders, maybe we should try it here. I have traveled the world with the USN, important to remember that you are a guest when in another country, you need to comply with their laws, its their country.
Mello Lev (22 days ago)
It’s sad that as Americans and Canadians we can’t cross each others borders freely but unfortunately politic is making it harder and harder. I got the same questioning and suspicious looks at the airport in California when I traveled alone.
Kathryn Livingston (22 days ago)
As a Canadian here, america is about the same. It's easy enough to lie, they aren't super powered anything. Mostly the animal thing is to make sure they stop invasive species and stuff. The money thing was weird, but canada has such an expansive medical system if has to secure it's borders.
JD. Frazier (22 days ago)
Canada's Immigration is brutal. I've crossed that exact border. I don't blame Canada one bit. Keeping our crazies and criminals out. Good for Canada.

please please post a vid about how it goes on your return to the usa from near the b/c area it should be a real good one ...

wow all the same questions that regular cops ask now days on a regular traffic stop...welcome to the new police state all are guilty until proven innocent .....last time i ran into this kind of intrusive police i asked them if they had a fishing licence he said no,, i said so you are fishing for info with no licence ay...wait till your trip back from b/c they will rip stuff up looking for pot then say sorry bye bye
Juno Mac RC (23 days ago)
When I crossed We got searched big time. This was when me and my first Wife Graduated from Collage and were moving there. They Just open the doors to my truck and are Cat about jumped out, I went off. I just got my BS in CJ I new a lot of laws, and had a hot Temper LOL. Took them a hour to go threw all my gun. Next day 9-11 happed!

Chrisser N (23 days ago)
So let's review your "FT RV'er" information, you are tellings us that you should have your lies and mistruths ready and straight before you speak with an official representative from another country. I just want to be sure I got this straight so when I travel to Alaska I know that it will be okay to ( let's call it what is) "LIE" to them. I'm sure your fellow You Tube traveler "Caravan Carloyn" can give you an insight on how it feels to be lied to, and maybe she has some pointers on how to be ready, after all she worked in law enforcement and had some daily experience with this and how all the rest of your information that you share here should be viewed with a jaundiced eye. Why anything you tell us about your travels must be the truth and nothing but the whole truth. I'll be sure to have my children watch this video.

M.K. Carol (24 days ago)
I have an idea that you might be a bit of a Libertarian (after hearing what you said about laws). Did your border crossing cause you to have any change in your opinion of national borders?
Lori Adams (25 days ago)
Labels do divide us. We are more alike than different. Dang, they sure did interrogate you! Are you seeing anyone? What the heck does that have to do with going into Canada?
Anna Craven (25 days ago)
Health certificate? For dog?
MrJx4000 (25 days ago)
Heck, even going into Niagara Falls, NY from Ontario for a quick day shopping trip will get you the same if not more intimidating questions from border guards, and that's the same for me coming back into Canada. I think with all the world troubles, everyone is more concerned about travelers. And you actually do make a living being a YouTube blogger?
george mullett (25 days ago)
What did you think was going to happen. Its a b9rder crossing. They are there to protect that country

Courtney Saunders (29 days ago)
Unlike the US...Canada doesn't put up with any nonsense at the boarder...and that's why they don't have 50 million illegal mexicans and other Indians invading their country. If the US asked those kinds of questions...we wouldn't be spending hundreds of millions of dollars supporting other countries poor people. "Their job" is to keep Canada from turning into the United States....a immigration lib hell whole with no rule of law.

Totally normal. But if you don’t cross often like we Canadians do living so close then you will be surprised at how immigration actually works.

One trip crossing at Cornwall, Ontario with grandkids they searched our camper and gave us the third degree for 3/4 hour. Really not a pleasant experience. You'll find it much more pleasant coming back into US.
baciandrio (1 month ago)
We get the same third degree when we cross into the U.S and then again when we try to get back into Canada. And yes, their job is to make you feel a little unsettled.....and considering all the shenanigans going on in the U.S. I can imagine everyone is on edge.
Christine LaBrie (1 month ago)
I live in Washington state and have North Dakota plates on my car ( husband used to work there ). My Niece and I went to have Dim Sum and see the sights in Vancouver...………………………….HOLY SHIT we got pulled into customs and they thought I was trying to sex traffic my niece. It was a horrible experience and I will take a different car next time. I was hassled both going in and out. I know they are just doing their jobs but come on.
Linda Robinson (1 month ago)
Wow! that was some interrogation. I hope it is as other regulars have written, better on any further trips to Canada. Safe and happy journey through what looks like a magnificent country.

Carolyn, My favorite part was Capone getting the best darn foot/toe massage of his life on the road. Good for him. It's a tough job lookin' out for you and I'm sure he wouldn't have it any other way. : ) He Loves being your furry friend and Family and adores you, it's only obvious. Enjoy your travels through Canada, Hon.
