    not sure if it is the same as a 'land travel card', but there's also a 'passport' card. That is good for canada and the caribbean i think (or maybe mexico). it's a lower cost option than a full passport but it doesn't let you go everywhere.

    in ny you can also get a type of drivers license that is good for crossing into canada, i believe that is called an 'enhanced' drivers license. screw paying nys anymore than necessary; i'll stick with the feds (slightly lesser of the two evils in this case).

    i have both a passport and passport card.

    if you have a passport it's all you need to cross the border. just tell them you are going riding with a bunch of people you met on the internet but have never met in person. they'll roll their eyes and wave you through...or they did last year!

    all u guys are spoilt :ddog
    being the only true international who needs a visa to enter Canada, i must say u guys have it plenty easy....i got to pay $100 to get a single entry visa including all cost of shipping my passports to the embassy and waiting for 30-60 days to get my passport back.
    as for the border entry in either direction, i try to act as the dumb ass indian guy stuck with smart ass american dude (sky pilot) and that balances/cancels all of the asses out of equation....and they let us pass without any trouble....

    4 days of incredible riding and going thru all the visa, passport stuff is nothing.....

    did you mean 'Americans' in the sense of continental presence (aka North American aka Canadians) or bona-fide US of A 'Americans'?

    You realize this ride is in CANADA right? Depending on whether you choose 'A' or 'B' above, you could be in for a world of shock! :rofl

    Besides, rudy is a total show to himself! Just wait for his crocs to make an appearance! Talk about CONTRAST!

    Correct. It's the "Passport Lite." I'm thinking about getting both. My passport is up for renewal. The paper book takes a lot of abuse on the road. They're getting VERY sticky about passports that aren't in mint condition. The card is waterproof and less hassle to store on a bike.

    Look at a map. Somewhere, there will be a note, "Here there be dragons." It's where the roads run out. Buncha passive-aggressive Hockey twats up there, deeply embedded in logging culture, socialism, trout fishing, and the Grey Cup. I can't figure the place out myself, except that they have excellent coffee and you can find a four-star hotel in the ass-end of nowhere. No one has ever pulled a gun on me north of the US border. I like that.

    Canadian Whiskey, however? Let's talk.
