It seemed like the cars that were going into Canada were always better cars, BMW, Merc, Audi, VW, etc. The cars going into the US were always Honda, Pathfinder, Durangos, ricers, toyotas, etc... Always traffic to get back into the US, and the border stop always sucks with weird questions, invasion of privacy, etc etc.

Maybe Canada is unsafe. People go in with expensive cars, get robbed and come back with beaters?

Same here. I've been to 11 countries since poker's Black Friday. I'm in Ontario now, and there are quite a few USA poker players in the city I'm living in.

USA aka "The Land of the Free" - such a joke.

Great "How I Met Your Mother" tonight.

Can/USA banking question:

If I have a Money Order in USD drawn from a Canadian bank, and then deposited into the USA at like BOA or Chase, will there be any fees, holds, or problems with depositing it?

If the check is already in USD, there will be no fees when you deposit it in the US. Whether or not you'll have a hold will have to do with the amount of the check, your account type in the US and your US bank. It's just like any other out of state check that you deposit.

As for "problems," there is a good chance that you won't be able to feed it into an ATM (although it depends on the check and the ATM). Other than that, I can't think of anything else.
