    MOA Getaway - Lake Chochiching, Ontario, Canada - 5.21 - 5.23.2015

    Wondering why there is no Lake Couchiching Thread?

    Could it not be with the MOA Rally Thread since it is a MOA Event.

    Sorry if I did not see an existing thread, I searched the words but saw nothing.
    So if I didn't find it how can others talk about it?

    I found this using the google site search method:

    http://www.bmwmoa.org/events/event_d....asp?id=573530

    Does not appear to be a forum thread on it.

    I'll be there as well. Hoping that if it is warm enough for camping, I'll get there by way of Duluth, Thunder Bay etc. That would make for a nice ride. Of course if it is a cold weekend, a 3 1/2 trip, the short wimpy route.

    Maybe, maybe not. Paul, why not ride north to Couchiching and find out? Buy you a beer if you come.

    Haven't been to Canada since Expo 67, do you need a passport now?

    Oh yea, Homeland Security is to thank for that! We used to be able to cross between quite easily, but since 9-11 the US has required all other countries have a passport to enter the U.S., hence all other countries require the same in response. 1967 is long gone, that is the new reality. Best to get a passport anyway if you ever plan on visiting south of the border too.

    Hope to see you make it up, we have lots of surprises planned.

    I don't think Canada requires a passport but they might, I've lost track. However, the United States absolutely requires a passport, passport card, etc for re-entry to the U.S.

    As a U.S. Citizen they will eventually have to let you back in with or without a passport but it might takes days or weeks and lawyers so having a passport or equivilent is from a practical standpoint, required.

    I guess it is about time to get my "Papers" any way, maybe see some of you up there. South of the border for me is a fireworks store on the way to Fla. Thanks for the response.

    It's a hassle. But, that's my lowly opinion.

    Passports are required to get back in the US. Canada has a huge penal colony up near Hudson Bay for Amerikans stuck in Canada without a passport.

    Not Hudson Bay, but much further north on Baffin Island.

    I can see that, but when I tried to pronounce it, my eye dialect, came up with the sound that a cash register makes, only with a Canadian accent.
