How many threads does a forum need to discuss a border reopening? Evidently at least 1/2 a dozen lol.

Dave, couldn't agree more. We're not Canadian, but for the last two years with Covid we really didn't change much of our travel plans. We used masks and social distancing and continued to enjoy ourselves.
Got our shots this past spring and hope to get a Booster once approved. More worried about the idiots on the road causing an accident than catching the virus.

As of yesterday:

1,480 new deaths

9,695,610 active cases.


Round up USA to 10,000,000 active / 350,000,000 population = 2857 active per 100,000 population.

Saskatchewan 73,057 active / 1,000,000 population = 7305 active per 100,000 population.


Do you practice any kind of gun safety?

Statistics say just 27,000 people a year are accidentally shot in the US, not much of a risk right?

330,000,000 people, 27,000 shootings, so less than 8.2 per 100,000 population per YEAR.


Do I practice “gun safety”? Yes, as I was trained.

This has to do what with the land border opening?

Just that there is risks in every breathe we take.

I apologize if it was taken personally brother, it was only meant as an illustration. Seatbelts, road safety, gun safety, food safety, everybody seems to be happy (or sad) with wildly differing levels of risk.

In a lot of cases it seems to be way more political than factual or based in science.

Apology accepted JaxDad - I understand what you meant now.

I'm pretty much done with the daily dose of fear mongering.

I'm going to ride my motorcycle tomorrow. Possibly a bit over the speed mandate on gravel and dirt roads. And then dodge a few texting drivers on a main road or two. If I survive that I'm going to cook something high fat on the barbeque and then watch the sunset and northern lights.

Sounds like a fantastic day.

May I suggest a cold adult beverage or 3 to help in the digestion and to get over those problem drivers.

My understanding is that Canadians returning via land will have to show results of a recent (72 hrs?)PCR test indicating no covid infection. Where and how do we get one? I am contemplating a trip south in January and returning vi Blaine > Vancouver or Pt Angeles > Victoria.

That is correct, a PCR or NAAT test less than 72 hours old. If however you’re going over & back in less than 72 hours you can get the test done in Canada before you go.

In the US most Walgreens and CVS’s I’ve been to in the south are doing the tests, by appointment, for free for Canadians.

Go online to pharmacies in the area you will be heading back home from and scout it out.

Thanks, JaxDad. It's encouraging that Walgreens and CVS are options, (I should be able to find one), and more encouraging that they are free. Appointment is another issue (schedules are not a part of my travel plans!), but compromises are always possible. Trying to be very definitive at this point is also futile, I believe, because the situation could change with time. But I have more information now than before your reply.
