A few years back I attended a touring motorcycle rally in Hyder Alaska, a small isolated portion of Alaska that is only accessible by road through Stewart BC. No crossing stop going from Stewart into Hyder, but Customs stop re-entering BC. Wearing full gear including helmet and earplugs, the agent asked what I thought was "Do you have more than $10,000 insurance?" When I replied yes, her eyes got real wide! I removed helmet & plugs and she clarified "$10,000 in currency". We both had a good laugh!

I've been to Hyderseek twice on my motorcycle.
Once I had to stop, shut down the bike, and remove my helmet to talk to the agent. The other, I just pulled up, and with the bike running,he asked how long I had been in Hyder, if I was bringing anything back into Canada, and said "Have a nice ride".

On re-entering the US from Ontario a couple of years ago, the border officer ask my dog if she had left anything in Canada. When I told him just some liquid in the grass at the Flying J in London, he asked her if she was sure she hadn't left anything solid. I told him if she had, I would have bagged up the "evidence" and brought it with us. He laughed and said, "Good man!", and waved us on through.  ;D
