No matter how nice I am, no matter how cooperative, even when I'm freshly shaved with combed hair, wearing a smile, documents in hand, etc... I'm always subject to the most intensive searches and strange questioning. Ha ha. I can't seem to re-enter the country I was born and raised in without extreme suspicion from the powers that be.
It doesn't get any better.. I'm a 50 something, and last summer they kept me for 90 min at the border coming back down towards Duluth. Waited until it was dark before they had been through everything on the bike.. I think they checked my toothpaste!
Rant/Highjack over.. Please continue.. Fantastic RR
