So? I saw a motorcyclist get his head cut off after a truck intentionally him in TN.

Does that mean that TN should be avoided? Trucks? Motorcycles? Driving?

The Yukon is no more dangerous than any other place, and with the lack of other drivers, you don't have to worry about bad driving doing you in as much.

we drove up in 2006 and had all the things they say are required to show and all the looked at was our drivers license and said have a nice trip....I think it just depends on who is at the gate and what mood they are in...maybe it is almost time to go home and they didnt want to go thru the trouble of checking. there were 5 of us also.

Default customs officials in general

I think a lot of problems are related to customs officials in general, no matter what flavor. They've all got a little A-hole in them somewhere, and if you hit them at the wrong time or push the wrong button it's just waiting to come to the surface and ruin someones day. Sometimes the process of crossing the US/Canadian border (in either direction) seem almost random in nature; one time it's a breeze, the next time they'll give you the grilling. It doesn't help that there's a huge and seemingly inpenetrable maze of regulations and laws, if they interpreted every one of them strictly they'd probably never let anyone through.

My husband is on probation right now but gets off in october(believe me this wasn't justice). His friend had pot in his glove box so myhusband got arrested along with him. STUPID. Anyways, does anyone know if this will affect us going across the border? I don't think it should but you never know so I want to make sure. He will be off probation this fall and we aren't leaving till next summer.

The pot will probably get you stopped at the border. I'd check before hand and get the info in writing or record it.

Trust me they can and will find every little thing you've ever done that involved the law. Even if you had something so called stricken from record...when it comes to crossing borders, nothing is stricken from your record. They can find stuff 40 years back, as one of my last travel partners found out, trying to get his passport stamped coming into Canada from North Dakota.

Sorry to hear you had a hard time. I don't remember a bad thing about driving through the Yukon. It seemed like a breeze after going through the Canadian Rockies. I'm curious as to how much it cost to have an RV shipped as well.
