How do I travel from the UK, enter the US, stay for a while, take a long weekend in Canada while I deal with a personal situation, then re-enter the US for the rest of my trip without causing too much immigration hassle? Is it even worth it? [more inside]
How do you find out for certain exactly what information appears when Canadian border guards run your information through their system? A friend of mine didn't mention a minor incident that was supposed to go off his record from when he was a kid in the 70s. It appeared in their database, and they weren't too happy that he didn't mention it. He granted entry after being roughed-up verbally and doesn't want to go through the same ordeal every time. Since there is no reason to volunteer information that's not supposed to be in the system, how does one know what they are SUPPOSED to say?

I am having a difficult time locating the Nike+Ipod Sport Kit in Canada. Apple.ca doesn't have it listed in their store and Nike.ca is just a horrible [but cool looking] website. My google-fu is failing me miserably and I was hoping that someone has seen these around. I called a local [Kitchener] Apple reseller and they say it should be available in 2-3 weeks. My greedy little hands cannot wait that long. :) Can anyone help?
What legal history record can the Canadian, US border patrol sleuth out, and what do they care about? I am going on tour with a musical group from NY to Montreal. I heard that when passing the border with a van with music equipment, they can be very scrupulous and even do background checks. I have a non-felony on my record in Chicago, in which I won the court case, but never sent the $300 to my lawyer to finish the expungement process. Will they be able to sleuth out this information at the border? How have your experiences been at the border?
