Re: Louisiana to Alaska Overlanding Rig Suggestions
If you plan on crossing the border with firearms ( handguns ) know that they are prohibited in Canada, they won't get in , and you either if caught( you know you need to cross into Canada to go there, right ? ) . You can cross with hunting riffles and ammo , if you declare them at border. You need a Passeport and no criminal records... DUh, i know, but i have US friends that still don't know this...
I would bring spare parts like spare belt, tie rods, ball joints ( not that those parts are not available everywhere, but it will be faster if you break down and get to a mechanic, to have them in hand )
Which way are planning to come up ? Through the prairies, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan , or through British Columbia ? Also know that the gas up here is expensive... Right now it's around 1.30 to 1.45$/L that's about 5.30$/g for regular...Get some Canadian money if you don't want to get screwed on the exchange rate, or a good no exchange fee card.
