Hey ADVers... My grandfather in Anchorage is getting ready to go into a pioneer home in Fairbanks (he and my grandmother lived in Fairbanks from ~1968 - 2013) and as I'm self employed and have a Sprinter van, I get the job of driving up and back to collect a bunch of family heirloom stuff like furniture and whatnot for family in the Bay Area and here in San Diego. Looks like I'll be shoving off from San Diego on/around July 11. I have a couple curiosities... - It seems like a huge waste to drive up with an empty van. Is there anything I can buy down here and re-sell up there to help offset the gas cost? Someone mentioned dirt bikes being really valuable up there, but then I have to find good ones here, title them in my name (I presume -- to get through Canada), and deal with selling them when I get to Anchorage. What about other things that could get through Canada with no need to title in my name? - On that note, since I've never done this before, I wonder what Canadian customs will think of me driving into Canada with a van full of furniture/stuff -- either on the way up or on the way back. How does that work!? - Grandpa was a real outdoorsman and hunter. I've already inherited most of his guns as no one else in the family is interested, and he gave me his whole reloading setup when I was visiting a few years ago. Both of those are already with me in San Diego. However, there's a bunch of loaded cartridges (30-06, 357/38, 22) that he wants to give me, which are still in Anchorage. Is it possible to bring those back through Canada with me? What about unloaded primers and powder in their factory containers -- OK, or a no-no? Anyways...those are my pressing questions for now...I appreciate any light you guys can shed on the above questions...I've been googling but I tend to trust opinions of ADVers more than just the google machine. Thanks!
