RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

In 2019 BC did req chains. (After Oct as I recall) Not on the vehicle but in possession. It wasn’t over advertised but It was true. Better check real good. I’ve never used mine, but have for winter Alcan travel.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Better be sure the Canadians will let you thru the border. I have personally talked to 2 families that made it thru and two who were turned away. No reason no recourse. This is a bad time to bet on a friendly border agent.

RE: Tire Chains

No, you won’t need chains. Done it the last 6 yrs in April coming home to AK. If it does snow it’ll be gone fast. It’s a major rd now a days. Driven it ( both ways) in mid winter too and carried chains but never had to use em. Do not start trip w/ old tires however. Take your time, enjoy the trip, IF the borders open up finally.

RE: Border closure extended

Opps. CBSA is correct. My mistake. Thanks for the current report from MORSNOW. You said you need a reason that's" not vacation". What did you tell them? What was your reason ? Are you a resident of ID and said you were going home ? Snowbirds up here like me only have one reason (if we're honest).

RE: Changes to Snowbird lifestyle and Snowbird communitiess

From AK to the Lower 48 there have been different experiences. In the last 10 days 2 different families left Palmer for AZ. One got thru', the other was turned back. Ram truck pulling TT got thru', MH pulling toad was turned back. Who knows why ? A Sept article in the Anchorage newspaper on the Border closure Extension said CBC says they're allowing 5 crossings per day in the "Western States". Does that mean crossings going South from AK, or crossings heading to AK from the Lower 48. Who knows ? If you call and finally get a real person the CBC will tell you "it all depends". I think they are allowing the Border Agents to decide "as the situation dictates" from day to day. Good luck. We're staying in AK this winter for the 1st time since 2006. Hello snow shovel.

RE: Canada border crossing

Moderator- I think you’d better close this down. It’s turned weird And not about Canada/US border crossings.

RE: Canada border crossing

i just arr'd home in Palmer, AK. We had no problems in Canada. There was a Covod ck point entering Yukon. At Watson Lake we had to stop & be interviewed by officials, but there was no difficulty. If you want specific info about our trip thru Canada, pls shoot me a msg.

RE: Canada border crossing

R-You can’t avoid BC driving back to AK thru Canada. Jims On Apr 27, 2020, at 17:08, Bylsma, Rachel (Sullivan) wrote: Excellent! I am so pleased you are safely on your way! BC seems to have the most stringent requirements, if you can avoid having to drive through there it would be best. Please let me know once you make it back home to Alaska. -----Original Message----- From: Jim summers Sent: Monday, April 27, 2020 3:05 PM To: Bylsma, Rachel (Sullivan) Subject: Alaskans in Canada Crossed the border this morning at Sweetgrass/Coutts. No problems. Didn’t need any proof of AK residence other than passports. He did ask where we were staying tonight. Having reservations eased his mind. A few “ are you sick questions”. Reminded us no touristing, etc. Canada seems to be open. No masks anywhere. Same stores closed as USA but no diff in cars on the rd. Gas stations & hotels we always use are open. In Whitecourt Alberta now, Ft Nelson, Whitehorse & Tok, AK. the next 3 nites. Anyone wanting more info , tell them they’re free to email me. JimSummers, Palmer

RE: Canada border crossing

Just got this from Canadian Border Services Agency, in response To my question on their FaceBook page. I asked, can Alaskans cross the border to drive home? Their official answer to me is “yes”. Pls read their answer below: Yes - if your trip is essential and asymptomatic – for example travelling to get home - you may transit through Canada. You are asked to limit your stops along the way and self-isolate in your vehicle. If you need to stop (to use the facilities) – ensure you are practicing safe social distancing. Additionally, for any period of time in which you are not travelling, for example if your transit requires you to spend the night in a hotel, then you are required to self-isolate as well. If your trip is recreational in nature ie fishing trip – even if you are asymptomatic - then it is deemed non-essential and you will not be allowed entry to Canada to transit through to Alaska.
