1)Passport - will I need one - you wont need one to get into Canada but you will need one to get back into the USA
2)Ottawa, Ontario is Canada's capital and home to our Prime Minister
3)Calabogie Peaks is a Ski resort but the snow will be gone by April so no need to bring your snow ski's
4)If you are coming from the USA dont forget to get your cell phone carrier to put a Canada Roaming Package on your phone.
5) If you are coming from the USA stop on the USA side at the Duty Free store if you have not converted your US dollars to Canadian dollars. Note: you can use US dollars here but you may not like the exchange rate (under the category of "we saw you coming")
you may also want to pickup any discounted liquor/beer/wine/ cigarettes for your trip. Note: there is a limit so look for the signs stating how much you can bring across

Directions and instructions

How do I get there ?
USA travellers
coming up I-81 cross at Thousand Islands ON /Alexandria Bay NY or Prescott, ON / Ogdensbrg NY
coming up I-87 cross at Cornwall ON / Hogansburg NY or Prescott ON / Ogdensburg NY or QC / Champlain NY (you will encounter french road signs until you get into Ontario which is no big deal as you can still read the hwy #'s )

Coming from the East once you get into Ontario you will want to follow 417W north of Arnprior to Calabogie Rd and turn left

Coming in from the West which includes I-81 and 401E in ON take Hwy 15 north to #1 to #511 north - this will be the most relaxing part of the trip!

Maybe, just Maybe we can do a Tech Seminar in Canada.

If Rich will help and I don't run out of $$ first, I will TRY real hard to do a Tech Seminar for all my Canadian Friends.

Very interesting! Only 8 hours from here and a pretty drive the whole way. I just need to wait for the sailing race schedule to be announced.

I'm not real big on hiking anymore but did I see something about rafting nearby? :yesnod

Hey Cancam, wondering if the Canadian Capitol Tour is open to those of us on the US side of the border? If it is, I may have to bring my :blur: up north!
Bob we planned this so you could use some of your vacation to come visit us from the midwest !! your passport is already stamped so need to stop at the border !!

We would love to fit you into the schedule probably can even set up a hoist
so you can stand up to perform your delicate surgery!

Count me in as well. I can help out with stuff as well. Let me know what you need help with.
There is a race track in Calabogie. We may be able to get a parade type lap around the track - could be fun. I have some contacts.
