Just love how a fellow goes out of his way to try and get some clarification/info, and the trolls come out to shit all over him - <sarcasm> really guys, you're making the community look awesome! </sarcasm>
Warchild, thanks for the info. Taking what you've said so far, it sounds like getting some items across the border should be possible. However, I would suggest for all players considering, take a printout/colour photo of what you are planning on bringing back across the border, and stop on your way over to the american side at Canadian Customs, ask to speak w/ someone and explain what you would like to bring back.
Again, action is required to make things happen people, not just sitting around trolling on msg boards.
