Sorry for the short notice, but if you’re around / online in the next hour or so, you can catch me on the CBC Radio program Radio Noon.  We’ll be talking about crazy border crossings

The program is called Radio Noon, and is hosted by Shawn Apel out of Montreal.  You should be able to listen at

The Radio Noon program runs from Noon to 1pm Eastern Time, and I’ve been told that I should go on sometime between 12:20 and 12:45 p.m.

Crazy border crossings


They reached out to my site after reading the article I wrote a few months ago about crazy border crossing stories.  There have been some good ones that I’ve been a part of, often on some of my pursuits to visit all 3,143 counties in the United States.

In the comments of that original post, several of you shared some interesting border crossing stories as well, including one commenter who exasperatedly told a Canadian Border Protection Agent “look we’re just crossing into Canada for a wedding, it’s nothing major, it’s just another state!” (that did not go over well)

Since writing that post, I have also crossed the border from Singapore to Malaysia, and crossed the border from Malaysia to Singapore.  More recently I visited Point Roberts Washington, which is an exclave of the United States that is only accessible by driving from Washington through Canada.  So for the hour or so I spent in Point Roberts, I had to cross the border 4 times!

If you’ve got any other crazy border crossing stories, I’d love to hear them!
