Driving

It's mind-boggling that some travellers, heading north or south in RVs, have pulled up to the Canada/US border, and been shocked to find they couldn't cross.
Ignorance is not always bliss.

This is the one that got me.

Barbara Moller and John Grant Howse own property in La Paz, where they usually spend half the year. On Thursday, the Inveremere, B.C., couple loaded up their trailer with intent to drive down to the property. Instead, the U.S. border agent told them they’d have to pull a U-turn and head back to Canada.

How could some plan such a trip involving three countries and two land borders that are supposedly closed for non-essential travel, without having thoroughly researched the logistics and legal issues?

Then to top it off they had this to say.

We were spoken to as if we were a couple of dummies or something.
